This was my first stay in a Klimpton property. To start with the parking fee of $ 38 is the highest I have ever had in any city. A stay at another hotel,a few blocks away had a $20 fee.
from the valet entrance you go into the first floor then must find you way up one flight to the lobby. At check in it was not mentioned that you must use your key to access the elevator to higher floors. After being unsuccessful in moving after the doors closed,they doors reopened and a staff member who happened to be there told us to use our key and actually did it for us.
The room was very,very nice , spotlessly clean and quiet with no noise from other guests.
I was not able to find a coffee pot so in the morning I went to the lobby and found a nice set up,of coffee,teas and hot chocolate. I mentioned that I had found no coffee pot in my room and was told that I could order a Keurig at no charge. The problem with everything was that no one went out of their way to provide information,directions,give a pleasant greeting or a brief orientation to this gorgeous historic building. There is no information in the room about a coffee service or availability of a pot being provided. To me it is the service that will keep me coming back not just a nice room at a premium price. I would rather stay at the nearby Hampton Inn which is in a beautiful historic building also but had a very helpful who had many helpful restaurant suggestions.
PS a bag of potato chips in the I room pantry cost a mere $12. Stop by 7-11 instead.
