Despite the fancy lobby and costumed doormen, the rooms are pretty standard, though slightly on the high end. The rooms are similar to the other Kimpton hotels in the area, which is to say they are fine for a stay of several days, and very clean. There is a modest fitness center with a few treadmills and ellipticals and some free weights. A Starbuck's is conveniently located on the first floor outside, and Walgreen's right across the street. For tourists it's great, for business travelers maybe a bit hectic.
