Our stay in a King terrace room was overall pleasant and we would visit again. Highly recommend signing up for a Kimpton membership as we thought the room rate, website, check-in treat, and service provided were excellent. The lobby is darkly lit / decorated in a boutique yet comfortable style, and we felt the same about the room. The small terrace balcony was large enough for two and though not very private, provided a nice space extension to the room. A minor concern is that other guests could clearly be heard from inside the room when they were talking/singing outside on their balcony (at 1 a.m.). Not sure there's much the hotel can do about that. The bathroom was well-laid out and we liked that there's a trash and separate recycling bin in the room.
The food, drinks, and staff at lunch and at the bar later in the evening were stellar. We enjoyed the modern fitness area and the pool looked inviting, though we didn't get the chance to swim (there is a part-time life guard in attendance). This is a pet-friendly hotel, so a guest can ask to stay on a pet-free floor if that's a concern. We're originally from the Alexandria area and think this is a great location next to the shops, restaurants, and Torpedo Art Gallery of Old Town. The free OT trolley can take you to the King St. Metro and Hoffman movie theatre a mile or so west.
We look forward to asking for a goldfish for our room and enjoying the evening wine hour during our next stay. Also, thanks to Courtney, Raoul, and Aretha for helping make our visit so welcoming!
