Great location, excellent amenities, but it's the staff that makes this place out of this world. Lots of little touches that demonstrate their commitment to making it a fantastic stay. I look forward to going back.

Great location Great staff Fantastic model allowing all sizes of animals particularly not placing a size restriction on dogs. Super friendly and helpful staff. The Sazerac restaurant was amazing, the ham platter was brilliant. Definitely will come to this hotel again. Fantastic Seattle Hotel!

Hello Sooke BC! Thanks for the great note, sure appreciate the comments and YES that ham sample platter in Sazerac is moving up my list of 'must do' in Seattle - delighted you gave that a try. Our founder Bill Kimpton traveled across the country with his kids and dog many years ago. He was frustrated by the number of... More

The decor is really stylish, the rooms are clean and very comfortable, the staff go out of their way to be helpful but are never phony or obsequious, and the location and rates are very good. I will go out of my way to stay at this or other Klimpton hotels in the future.

From the moment we arrived at the hotel entrance to the time we had to say good-bye, it was an overall wonderful stay at this well appointed hotel. We were greeted with a warm welcome and smiles from the doorman and checked in quickly and smoothy from the reception staff. The hotel lobby is eclectically decorated - very inviting! Our... More

Thanks so much Lange, we love having our neighbors from the North come down and stay with us. The entire company has a focus on the enviroment, its the small touches from the soy-based ink in our printers (more recyclable) to the dispensers in the showers. (that is 90,000 small bottles we aren't dumping in landfills from this hotel alone!).... More

All the staff were very helpful. Interior of hotel is very luxurious looking with the high ceiling. At 5 - 6 pm everyday, there is complimentary drinks at the lobby and every morning from 5 - 9am, there is complimentary coffee too.

Hey New Jersey! Hope you are here vs. there during the snow storm you are having at the moment.

My family highly enjoyed the wine and the friendly staff. Bell men John & all the front desk staff were very informative about places & sights in the area. The AK girls enjoyed themselves and felt safe while we stayed at the hotel.

Thanks Alaska! I am delighted that we could be a safe and secure alternative for you and your friends. Our hotel has key card activated elevators and then you do have to get past those friendly bellmen when you come in the front door. Hey - your safety is our major concern and we take it very seriously. Great points... More

We enjoy staying at Kimpton's and did like this Hotel a lot. The location is central and in the downtown hotel zone. We had a suite, which was large and comfortable and spotlessly clean. We lacked for nothing....except. The mini-bar, which we don't normally use, we did this trip. Just one beer each, which was the total number stocked. Next... More

Welcome Vancouver! appreciate the notes on the stay. No idea why the mini bar wasnt restocked we normally work hard on keeping those little gems filled. If you have a DND on your door they wont come in and there is a tiny code on the mini bar door which tells them to check, perhaps mis read. Anyway. Great information... More
