This is an older deluxe hotel in the center of the city. It has room service but in-room conveniences such as microwave, refrigerator, coffee-maker, etc. are not included. WIFI is OK but you need to sign up for the Kimpton loyalty program to get it free of charge.
The room lacked a comfortable desk chair, but they brought one up on my request. Maid service was excellent. They also have a deal where you can decline maid service for any given day and get a $10.00 credit for use in the restaurant, etc.
We booked this for a very good rate through the Entertainment 2010 book which in turn used Expedia to book the room through some or other arrangement. The net result was a rate well below the rack rate.
