Stayed here for business. It is a large hotel, but works very hard to feel cosy and personal.
Good sized room with nice art work, free wifi if you sign up for the Kimpton programme (no fees for that so a no brainer), nice bathroom. Lots of nice little extras like evening free wine in the lounge/reception area, a lovely set of goodies to choose from in the mini bar/room snacks. The restaurant is also very good and prides itself, quite rightly, on fresh seasonal organic food well presented - everything I had was delicious - I made sure I had lunch there before I left for the airport and was not disappointed. And it does not feel like a faceless hotel restaurant. Also while I was there some breakfast elements were included in the room only fee - but ordering from the menu was also a treat. Very helpful staff at all times too.
No negatives really - just felt that it was trying a little bit too hard sometimes to be a boutique hotel. Examples of this included the extraordinary faux tiger and leopard dressing gowns (although I missed these at another Kimpton property!!) plus skimpy night gear hanging in the closet and available to purchase - not suitable for a chunky lady like me really. Also lots of goodies for pets in the room stuff so beware if you are allergic to dogs (not a problem for me and a positive selling point for Kimpton I noticed)
That said it was an enjoyable and practical stay, and made me feel positively about Kimpton as a brand trying to be a bit different while also delivering a good working hotel experience.
