Was there for two nights on business 12/8-10. I am a fan of the Kimpton experience and have made a point of staying at their hotels in the Bay Area, Vancouver, and D.C.. This was my first time at the Topaz and was wary because it's a 3-star, not a 4-star propertly. However, i can safely say that it is now my favorite Kimpton property, and well-suited (for diferrenet reasons) for both business travelers and couples seeking romance.
Tripadvisor reviews indicate that the rooms are large, but i was still surprised by the size of the rooms. Also, the pictures concerned me because i thought the room might be gaudy or worse, shabby, but is was gorgeous and inviting.
Leopard print bathrobe certainly a nice touch, though it stayed on the hangar
A great touch is the alcove with the desk, allowing you to get work done without staring at or even seeing your bed.
Hotel staff were always courteous, welcoming you back but not being too overbearing about it. Neighborhood was great. Lovely tree-lined residential street just off of Dupont Cicle. All the conveniences were nearby.
One possible snafu was finessed by the management from a negative to a positive: the restaurant and bar were closed for a private party (a dreaded office xmas party with a chessy bar band, no less) on my first night. Upon check-in i was provided with drink tickets for the bar at their neighboring hotel, the Rouge, just a few blocks away. I appreciated this gesture and certainly enjoyed the free drinks!
In any case, I look forward to returning for non-business reasons, and perhaps then the leopard print robe will see some action.......
