This is a beautiful hotel set in the heart of downtown Seattle. Every part of the hotel that we encountered was luxurious and immaculate. The room was beautiful and ours had a fireplace and comfortable couch in a sitting room with a library of books perfect to read by the fire on a rainy evening. The room also had quite a few thoughtful touches such as extra pillows, towels, and other necessities hidden away. I was most impressed by the staff. The front desk staff almost seemed disappointed if you passed by without requesting anything. They were so friendly and helpful. The valets were also wonderful and did a great job of helping with travel directions and asking other questions. I've never stayed at a hotel where we were made to feel so special and appreciated as a guest. I plan to look for Kimpton hotels on my travels around the country because this hotel made such a great impression on me.
