Was a little worried as we hadn't stayed at a Kimpton and I was a little worried about the pet friendly thing but it turned out I worried for nothing! Had a lovely 4 day stay, room was very large and immaculate with a view of PetCo Stadium (from our 8th floor room); large bathroom with tub/shower combo, large closet and plenty of desk space. Super comfortable bed, huge TV, we did have construction on our side of the building but really didn't hear much of it unless I opened the window. Did have barking dogs down the hall the first night when you walked by 'their' room but couldn't hear anything from inside our room. Hotel very convenient to everything downtown and we walked almost everywhere. Parking is steep but we parking in the garage less than 2 blocks away for $15 a night. Use the side door that opens onto J Street (?) for access at all other times as you are likely to get hit going in and out the driveway/garage in the front of the hotel. Front desk 'gals' very helpful if aloof, the dog at the front desk was the best part; check in and check out fast and efficient, bell men/valets very nice and helpful. Flavored water available in the lobby at all times was very refreshing, mini bar fully stocked and mighty tempting with all the goodies with cute names but ALSO no price list! Will definitely be back to stay here!
