I have become a fan of Kimpton hotels after staying in a few of them. The Topaz I found because one of their others didn't have the kind of room I needed. The neighborhood was not where I initially wanted due to the event I was going to but was a nice area close to the Metro.
The staff could not have been friendlier, when we got there the lobby was being renovated and they were using a temporary front desk. By the time we left after the weekend the lobby was finished and we checked out from the new front desk.
The bartender told us that the bar was next up for renovation. It is nice to see a hotel keeping updated but the bar has kind of an eclectic charm as is. I hope they keep some of the weird (in a nice way) furnishings.More
