I'm writing the review while wide awake in a Meditterean suite due to the tremendous street noise that comes into the room. I raised the issue several times with the front desk and they, of course, "apologized". My take is that the hotel knows room noise is a huge issue but they haven't yet taken measures to ameliorate it, and so just say "sorry" and ignore it. We've stayed at numerous Kimptons around the country, as well as many high end hotels (Ritz, Four Seasons, etc.) and find it hard to believe this Kimpton hotel doesn't recognize the noise problem (or at least warn customers about certain rooms).
Other minor issues were no turn down service (without our requesting it), and newspaper per Kimpton club membership was never delivered. Otherwise, nice place.
