My sister and I have stayed in the historic building of the K&P on a number of occasions during the winter, each of us having our own room. This time, she had an ocean-front room, but I had a courtyard-facing room, which was twice the size of hers and very lovely. She had the view. In both cases, the rooms were well-furnished and clean. We received those prized pillow chocolates each night. Curiously, though, the maid staff was different each day and our rooms were not serviced until mid-afternoon---no big problem, just a fact.
As usual, the K&P had an enormous fresh tree decorated in the lobby of the historic building and other signs of the Christmas season (a red sleigh with wrapped gifts, the winners of a gingerbread house competition, and such). The problem is that the historic building is undergoing major renovation in its public areas that will continue until the end of February, when the spring/summer rates become effective. No longer does one check in at a counter in the lobby, but at a small cottage near the entrance to the property. Of course, there isn't anyone around in the lobby to ask a question. The main dining room is closed and guests eat in an expanded bar area. The business area with computers for guest use now consists of a table and chairs at the edge of the lobby with three computers and a printer on it. Jackhammers and other construction noises sound off during meals. There is no gift shop. It is disconcerting to be in a supposedly luxury resort with all the commotion and reduced convenience.
