The car door closes, the doorman takes your bag, and you're whisked from the city into the marble-floored lobby. As is the case with all the staff at this hotel, the receptionist was extremely friendly, even going so far as to use her rusty French with my boyfriend who was in town visiting at the time. As is the case with all hotels, it's really the small touches that make a stay truly great: the silent elevator, the 'raid pass' ($10 credit for the mini-bar given to Kimpton In-Touch members), the personalized message center on the TV, and the hand-crafted soaps. I'm always happy to meet the management of any hotel I stay at, and this is possible during the Wine Hour offered daily. I've stayed in many other hotels offering free drinks in the lobby, but this is the only perfect execution of it I've seen. The goal is to offer a social outlet, a feeling of community, to its guests and that is exactly what it does.
