XV Beacon or Nine Zero?

Same price. Just having a hard time deciding. I like things about both.

And they're quite near each other as well. It's really a toss-up.

Hence my problem. What if someone offered you a free 3 night stay and you could only choose one. Which would you pick?

I have stayed at neither, but in my mind, I see XV Beacon as a notch above Nine Zero and I would choose there. Not sure exactly why, just my overall impression.

If the Sheraton offered me a third night free, I'd stay there over both the nine and 15. Does that answer your question?

No CrossFit, but thanks. The Sheraton isn't what I'm looking for.

Thanks Cabinet. Looks like these properties are neck and neck. Might just flip a coin!

Ok, sorry. I see now that no one is really offering you a third night free. It's really a toss up but the deciding factor is the 15 has a complimentary car service where the nine does not or at least I think it doesn't.

The 15 has more on staff including a door man. The nine keeps it to a minimum.

XV Beacon is probably the best boutique hotel in the city. Fantastic property. Stay there.\

Much nicer than nine zero, which is not a great Kimpton property IMO.

I have friends who have stayed twice at the Nine Zero and liked it a lot. They were more budget- oriented, and I'd the XV had been offered at the same price, I would definitely recommend they stay there.

That said, the view from the Nine Zero suite may be better, if that's a concern.
