Our recent stay at the Canary Hotel once again exceeded our expectations. We had enjoyed a holiday stay at the hotel and enjoyed it so much, we had to return. The experience begins the moment you arrive in the portico of the hotel and are met by the valets who are most helpful, especially considering we were traveling with our dog, Archie an Australian Shepherd, so we had the dog bed and food and our bags.
We were delighted to see Eddie at the reception desk. He greeted us warmly, including our dog, and welcomed us back to the hotel. He informed us that he had an excellent suite for us, but housekeeping was just finishing the room. He invited us to enjoy complimentary cocktails on the roof top lounge by the pool.
When our suite was ready, the bellman delivered our room key to us and the luggage had been placed in the room. The suite was quite large with a separate bedroom and bathroom in addition to the living room. Bedding and furnishings are all of very high quality and we love the hardwood floors.
The amenity gift was a delicious cheese plate with local wine. We had dinner in the beautiful lobby after the restaurant manager graciously moved a table for us so our dog could join us.
The hotel is so pet friendly and always writes your dog's name on a blackboard at the front desk. Nice touch. Sometimes there is a resident dog of one of the associates.
When we returned to our room that evening, we were surprised to find champagne and fresh strawberries to celebrate one of our birthdays. Compliments of management and associates. Again, nice touch.
In addition, Kimpton is a vocal advocate for LGBT Rights.
We highly recommend Kimpton's Canary Hotel.
