I have walked past this hotel several times. I finally had the chance to stay there just a few weeks ago. I LOVED IT! The hotel is very nicely decorated but the best part is it's location. If you get a room facing the river your view will be wonderful. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. The train station was within two blocks. Macy's was withing 3 blocks. Our favorite pizza place was only two blocks away. But the best thing of all is that they are pet friendly AND they don't charge extra. I had never stayed at a Kimpton hotel before but mark my word......from now on I will check them out first when I travel to NYC and Phoenix.
