“Great pet-friendly hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We often stay at Kimpton hotels because they are pet-friendly, but the Vintage Park is worth a visit with or without your pet. Just a short distance from Pike Place Market, restaurants and shops, VP is smaller and more intimate than its sister property, Hotel Monaco. Like the Monaco, VP provides morning coffee and newspapers in its wood-paneled lobby and 5 PM wine-tastings by the fire. The rooms are warm and inviting but the bathrooms are a little tight unless you're in a premium room. The hotel's Italian restaurant, Tulio, is outstanding -- try the sweet potato gnocchi! It's also worth paying a visit to the hotel's bar, especially if Pete the bartender is on duty. The service at VP is generally friendly and efficient, but our rating reflects the fact that no one told us upon check-in that the water would be turned off from 8AM until 5 PM on the two days we stayed there.

I wanted to extend my sincere gratitude for your submission of a review on Trip Advisor and to say thank you for your comments about the Hotel Vintage Park. You stated that the entire staff had taken great care of you, especially Pete in Tulio. I would like to apologize for the water outage you experienced during your stay. Our front desk team prides itself on delivering excellent customer service and we would love a chance to make it up to you. Again, we are most grateful for your business and look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel in the future.

The hotel is conveniently located in downtown very near to all the action. But, the best part about this property is the attentive staff and excellent service. Everyone there will greet you with a smile, and go out of their way to ensure your experience is top-notch.

My family and I (husband two kids, 7 and 5 years old) made our first trip to Seattle and choose this hotel based on the great reviews. It did not disappoint. The hotel staff was so friendly we felt like we were coming home to family after long days out sightseeing. Our first night we stayed in a queen queen room which was nice, but a bit too small for a family of four. We were able to move into a queen queen deluxe for the next two nights which had a lounge area with sofa and coffee table which made it perfect for the kids to have somewhere to hang out and much to our surprise, the hotel left us a great bottle of wine and chocolates to enjoy in our new room.
The location was great and we walked or took public transport everywhere and spent a bit of every day at Pike Market enjoying the food and scenery.
The end of our trip was spent uptown at the Grand Hyatt which although it was a much newer and fancier hotel, was not nearly as friendly and authentic to the area. We will definitely stay at the Vintage Park again when we visit Seattle.

Room Tip: for a family, go with the queen queen deluxe

Thank you Angelee M for completing a review of the Vintage Park. Wow! It sounds like you and your family had a wonderful time in Seattle. I am so glad to hear we were able to upgrade you to a larger room for the remainder of your stay. For you to say that you felt like you were “coming home after a long day of sightseeing “ means the world to our staff. We are dedicated to serving our guests in a genuine and sincere manner. We truly appreciate the time that you had taken completing our survey. Please let me know the next time that you are traveling to Seattle, we want to make it extra special.

We have stayed at this hotel twice in the past year. We came to enjoy the city and this was the perfect location for us. We left our car with the valet and set out on foot or cab. Everthing we needed was close by or a short cab ride. We were warmly welcomed and upgraded when we arrived. On one occasion, it was our 40th Anniversary and were were greeted by a bottle of wine in our room. The room was well appointed & clean. The afternoon wine receptions are a special treat. An added bonus was their restaurant, Tulios. The food was fabulous and the service equally so. Our special requests and inquires were happily fufilled. We highly recommend this hotel.

The VP is probably the best Kimpton if you are in Seattle to do business in the financial district or at the courthouse (which is right next door). Excellent access to the freeway, and superb off street valet parking. For those complaining about the price of said parking, welcome to the World. The rooms are smaller than average for Seattle and the bathrooms in particular are tiny. Decor is a tad dated but I understand a renovation is in the works. Superb Kimpton service and Tulio is one of the best restaurants in Seattle. We had a couple of issues which were addressed by the GM herself. A well managed proper with very professional staff.

Love Kimpton - the service is great, and they look after the little things. For us, that meant, since we're Kimpton In Touch members (their loyalty program -apply immediately!), we got upgraded rooms, late check-out, Mini-bar credit, welcome back cookies, and our newspaper of choice (New York Times!) delivered to our room. It is such a friendly place; and the nightly wine tasting (at no cost) sponsored by Washington state wineries is a great way to meet others. Rooms are classic and classy, with everything you need, and there's a great restaurant, Tulio's, right next door, with authentic and delicious Italian food.
And for those who care about environmental issues, they offer half-price valet parking for hybrid vehicles, and if you pass on maid service, there's a coupon of $5 to Tulio's or for room service for every day you skip.

Wow looks like you were able to take advantage of all our great amenities at the hotel during your stay with us at the Vintage Park. I am glad you mentioned our new program which is "Choose to Conserve" which allows us to be more eco-friendly by opting out of housekeeping service for the day and we reward you with a dining credit to Tulio our restaurant on premises. I am glad you had such a wonderful experience and we were able to meet all of your Kimpton In Touch preferences. We hope to welcome you back very soon.

Never stayed in a hotel were everything was just perfect. Booked this room thru priceline and got an amazing deal! Room was spacious ( king bed) and bathroom too. I felt so comfortable here and enjoyed my stay. Very detail-oriented hotel... From umbrellas to organic snacks- they thought of everything. And daily free wine tastings too.... how can you not love this place... very close to the Pike Market and major attractions. Love it!

We are so happy you enjoyed your stay at Vintage Park. I love that you pointed out our local amenities for guests. We do try to keep you dry with umbrellas in all of the rooms since the Seattle weather is sometimes unpredictable. Thank you for posting a review of our hotel and we hope you can return to Seattle from sunny California soon.
