Prior to arrival I wanted to have balloons and cupcakes setup in the room as a surprise for my Fiance. I called ahead of time and the staff there made sure it happened. I gave them a predetermined amount to spend and once we entered the room there was a huge Happy birthday balloon, 3 cupcakes and a card(not bad for 10 bucks aye Kimpton). The room was wonderful. A little on the small side, but very nice. There is a mini-bar in the room, but not enough space to store your own food or drinks. We called the front desk and they delivered a mini-fridge for us to use(free of charge). That fridge never got cold, so they replaced it with a brand new mini-fridge. Most places charge extra to provide you with a mini-fridge but not Kimpton! My Fiance is a fitness buff, and the hotel does not have a fitness facility, but they have a partnership with the LA Fitness(which is walking distance away), so you get FULL use of the LA fitness facilities free of charge!The hotel was pretty close to shopping, dining, studios(as we were in the audience for a few shows), and Venice beach. The rooftop restaurant has a great LA view of the Hollywood sign in the distance. The food is really good. Overall I had a WONDERFUL time. This was my 2nd Kimpton stay and its official, I LOVE KIMPTON HOTELS! Very modern, clean, and the additional free of charge services they provided are impeccable. I would highly recommend this hotel if you are in the LA area.
