This was our 1st time staying at a Kimpton property and we were so impressed. We were upgraded to a large King Suite with stunning views of the bay and city. We had a very large balcony with a chaise lounge and a table and 4 chairs. We sat out there every night and watched the boats go by and every morning we got up to watch the sun rise. The room had a ton of space and a sleeper sofa. It does have a mini bar but not fridge to keep water cool but they offer turn down service at night and fill your ice bucket.
The pool area was great. Plenty of chairs and towels. Because of the tall building the pool only gets full sun in the am but that is ok in the heat of the day you want some shade. One of the pools is heated and the other is not.
The location is fabulous! Very walkable to everything. Make sure you stop at the concierges desk for a map of places that are walkable from the hotel. Lots of choices. The wifi is free if you are a Kimpton Karma member. It is free to join. Parking is pricey...$40 a day for valet and no self park option but it is in the heart of downtown so that is the going rate as parking is hard to find. If you do need to get your car make sure you call for it 15 to 20 minutes before you need it as the valet gets crazy busy.
Gene at the concierges desk went above and beyond to make our stay special. He even surprised us with a cake as it was my birthday. I had also wanted fresh coconut water but had no way to open the coconut I purchased so Gene went above and beyond to get it open for us! Gene took good stay and made it an AMAZING stay.
I highly recommend this hotel. We will stay here again!!!! I would give them 10 stars if I could.
