Not sure the direction they want to go but they need to do some updating or close doors. The bar staff were the only ones that I would give a high rating to. Service was fair and amenities were almost non existent. Front desk was less than friendly. Would not stay here again.

This Kimpton property occupies most of two adjacent buildings near Union Square. The staff is well trained and very friendly. The rooms on the club level floors are adequate size and in decet shape. The club floors' complimentary the breakfast and happy hour fare are also adequate. The buildings are old, so Kimpton needs to do a more frequent refresh... More

We have stayed here a couple times in the past. We were very happy to hear that they will be closing down in 2015 for a major rennovation. First the positive, great location and the staff is very friendly and helpful and provide wonderful service. Negative... the bed was hard, curtains wouldn't pull open, rickety glass shelf in the shower... More

Thank you for staying with us. The renovation is kinda being kept quiet and we share that information with a limited number of guests but now that it is out there... This place is going to be amazing and we couldn't be more excited. Our staff is key and they truly love what they do and that makes me happy... More

The staff had the wonderful Kimpton attitude, but the accommodations are quite small and quite basic. The location is great. We had a queen bed room and didn't quite have room to unpack. I appreciate the historic character of the hotel, but it's not quite as posh as most other Kimptons.

Our staff is truly amazing. It is tough sometimes to find the right Kimptonites but when you get it right its something amazing. I am proud to say we have gotten it right. Thank you for noticing and we hope to see you again. More

I'll start by saying this isn't the type of hotel I'd normally pick (it was for a work function). I've stayed in a number of historic/charming hotels and many of them seem to be more run down than elegant. The Prescott is exactly that in my opinion. Many of the doors don't fit well and there's a lot of chipped... More

I visited the hotel and it was a nice experience. My room is leaking but the hotel offers me to stay in another hotel for free, which is nice. The room is also nice. The building is a bit older, and the elevator is shaking.

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect, providing easy access to many tourist activities. They have complimentary bikes for guests that are great to use around the city. The rooms were very clean and sufficiently updated. We were a little concerned about the room condition because the building is 100 years old BUT you could... More

Right off Union Square, this location is perfect for shopping, restaurants and access to everything. All of the staff are friendly, helpful and charming.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know how we are doing. The hotel is going through some major changes.
