For my first-ever experience at a Kimpton hotel, selected the Madera and stayed for three nights over a long weekend. Cannot say I will ever opt for a Kimpton hotel again. The hotel sits on a narrow lot and, as a result, the interior layout is awkward. There is no real lobby and no bellhop or doorman. I expected a boutique hotel with an interesting, modern design. Not to be. The receptionist's stand is tiny and there is little space in which to wait when there is a line. No vibe. The hallways were staid, brightly lit, and traditional. The hallways and rooms are adorned with "popcorn" (i.e., cheap) ceilings. The closet "door" consisted of an ugly, heavy, shower-type rubber curtain, the room was nothing special (and not particularly clean), and the bathroom was so small you could barely close the door while inside of it. It had one hook for wet towels. My view, through tattered window treatments, was of the hotel's garbage dumpsters.
I used the gym at the nearby and much larger Kimpton Palomar Hotel, and I think I would have been much happier there.
On the plus side, the Firefly breakfast (discounted via a booking special) was fine.
