I stayed here for one night and it was a decent, comfortable hotel. I don't really get the allure of Kimpton Hotels. This was the 3rd hotel I've stayed at and although they are decent, they are NOT upscale boutique hotels. They are wanna bes. It's like going to Target and thinking you're buying "top of the line" by buying from Isaac Mizrahi line. Smoke and mirrors.
The decor is ultra trendy and chic, but people easily get fooled by this exterior. The QUALITY of everything in the hotel is just mediocre. Nothing lives up to the hype of the Kimpton image.
This hotel seems like an old Howard Johnson that was converted. I stayed in a room with a computer which was a plus. It was a big room with a very very comfortable bed. The bathroom was small, but adequate.
Note to Kimptons Hotel: get a better breakfast. Powdered eggs (at least they tasted like powder) and bad danish don't constitute a $13. charge. However, the room service was very good.
For one or two nights it's totally fine - you'll be quite comfortable and have a good night sleep. If you're on a budget, it's great too. I paid $169 for the night which is GREAT for DC.
And I guess if you are from the suburbs and not used to "city travel" & want to stay at a trendy hotel, but don't want to spend alot of money....it's a GREAT alternative to a Days Inn. But don't expect a 5 star hotel.
