This was my first time in a Kimpton Hotel. I signed up for both loyalty programs prior to my arrival which provided free internet. I really only stayed in my room for the night since I had class the next morning so I can't speak for the amenities or the food. I came here to study, sleep and leave early on the weekend. The lobby was loud, though, with blaring upbeat trance.
Upon arrival Erica took great care of me. She put me in a junior suite facing Logan Circle on the 8th floor. It was quiet despite viewing the circle and since I was in the corner, I had two sets of windows both viewing out to the circle. The heavy blinds dimmed the lights at night.
The shower and bath were really cool, but I didn't get to use them. I had showered earlier that night. I did use the bath briefly in the morning and it was pretty cool. If you're on the heavier side those, the shower/tub may be hard for you to use as they are narrow. The toiletries smelled nice.
The bed and room layout was chique. I loved it. The bed and pillows were comfortable but the sheets were a little starchy. I slept fine and the wake up call was an actual person to my surprise. The room was in a great location as I didn't get bothered by any noise from other guests or from outside.
My only room complaint was that the rugs were stained in multiple spots, but I didn't care too much. Also, there was a spider in the bathroom but I got rid of it. Still gross.
Checkout was quick and the front desk girl was super nice, but I didn't catch her name. I used my mini bar credit and no charges were added. I got my rate from JetSetter for about half off. I'd definitely return. I'm not one to give the highest rating very often.
