The staff is second to none: Edgardo Padilly and Michael Love took care of me like we were dear friends. They remembered me and my friend each time we entered and exited the hotel. I came down with a cold during my stay. When I asked for hot tea, Edgardo sent a few oranges, tea, and honey to my room within 10 minutes. He and the rest of the team continued to ask about my heath throughout the trip. I asked Edgardo if he had any more oranges, not realizing he was on the way out, and he sent some to my room. The hotel staff members were gracious and charming. They should train other hotel staff members.
The rooms were bigger than expected considering the hotel is located in Washington, DC. I also loved the layout. There was a sitting area with ottoman, large desk, and awesome shower.
You must attend the happy hour at least once. The hot toddy was soothing on a cold winter day.
If you stay at a Kimpton property, I suggest you sign up for Kimpton rewards because free in-room internet is a benefit of the program. You also get emails about promotions. I secured this room for $99/night via their winter promotion when the standard rate was more than double the amount.
The only downfall, which may be a benefit for others, is the location (relative to other attractions). Union Station and other restaurants/stores are four to six blocks away instead of on the same block or closer proximity. Limited cab traffic comes by the hotel because it's not on the 'main drag'. However, the staff is happy to hail a cab for you.
