If you enjoy cookie cutter properties, this isn't the place for you. But if you enjoy unique, historic properties then you will enjoy the Burnham. This building is unique because the ceilings are ridiculously high with giant windows that let in lots of light. Unlike most hotels, the blinds are semi-transparent so you can enjoy the lovely view without sacrificing privacy. I also like that they will put a goldfish in your room upon request. Bedding is Frette, bath stuff Bigelow. Kimpton is always pretty cool about having a whole ton of stuff you can use at no charge if you need it. Staff is superb. In fact, Jack is one of the nicest people I've ever encountered at a hotel. He actually went next door to get me a cup of coffee after normal morning coffee hours instead of directing me to the starbucks. I overheard a concierge talking to a couple and she had multiple options for them lined up. It really felt like home there. How many times have we all stayed at a 4-5 star hotel only to have the call to housekeeping go unanswered, or a simple request take forever, if ever? Not here. It's the little things that matter, and they've mastered this.
