Called from overseas to arrange a stay for a couple of nights to visit my home town after a deployment. Everyone from the person who took my call to the young man that helped us load the rental as we left were exceptional. Cookies for the kids in thier room at bed time, Coronas on ice for mama and I in our room. The staff was always looking for ways to make the stay better and it showed. Not pushy or in your face, just there.
Facility is in a great location for downtown and sightseeing, the old Greyhound station is moved so no bus noise or other issues related to being near the depot. AWESOME views from the rooftop pool, no bar or pool side service... later as Kimpton takes on more here? Only room service which seemed painful though it likely would not have been.
Loved the decor and the tiles! Not fancy or too nice to touch. Just really nice and accessible to the people that want to stay here.
Only a Kimpton for a few months so I look for even better things to come. They have the bones to make a great spot for years to come. All the usual Kimpton touches, Wine reception in evening, goldfish on demand, hip robes, good coffee in the lobby, and nice people.
