I must confess my first experience with the Triton was many years ago, when working/traveling with a rock band. I loved it then, and my love affair hasn't ended. But Kimpton just makes sure this place keeps evolving and getting better.
This trip, San Fran was the last stop on a long road trip, and so it was also our first Kimpton Kids experience. We got delayed driving and weren't going to make it until very late (2-3 am). We called ahead and were assured by the friendly voice on the phone that our room would be waiting and we could collapse in comfort (and sleep in with a late checkout).
When we arrived, my sleepy daughter awoke to supreme rockstar treatment. We were whisked to our room quickly and efficiently where our treats were waiting for us. A Triton rubber duck, kids backpack and luggage tag, along with candies (thanks for the vegan chocolate for mom & dad) and an offer to deliver ice cream. She immediately called down and asked if she could have her ice cream after breakfast because mom said it was too late, and was promised it would be fine.
She got her wish the next morning a couple hours after exploring for breakfast- all propped up on her big bed, watching cartoons and eating half a pint(!) of mint chocolate chip. Living the life!
We explored Chinatown for lunch and then headed to Ocean beach to fly our kite (awesome). But she left the Triton with a couple more rubber ducks and treats, thanks to a staff which all kept going out of their way for her. She was so grateful and in awe!
Kimpton Kids raises the bar WAY high. But it was fun to have her treated like the rockstar she is!
Our room wasn't big but perfectly appointed and comfortable. Daughter pronounced her bed :the comfiest ever" and said it made up for so much drive time. The cool colors and vibe impressed and delighted.
I know I'll be back for work, and we've had a few couples Kimpton escapes, but now we know that Kimpton is a great family place too.
What took us so long?
