I love Kimpton hotels.
This one was very well located. Easy walk to everything I wanted to see and do. The staff was very nice, very helpful. From the valets to the desk staff, everyone was friendly and helpful at every opportunity. We received some excellent dining recommendations from them. The first night, we arrived late and went to a place the front desk staff suggested many places and even marked them all on a map so we could easily find them.
A few tips though. The standard rooms are small, but this is normal in city hotels. I was not bothered by it but for an extended stay, I would book a larger room in the same hotel. The architecture is lovely. The lobby is decorated with cute artwork all the way to the ceiling. The hotel has the standard Kimpton wine reception but this one also offered sangria (very good) and Xbox games in the lobby. Very fun.
I also very much enjoyed the restaurant. We received some free glass of wine vouchers because we arrived after the daily wine reception and the staff is just nice. So when we went to cash them in, the menu tempted us and we really enjoyed it. We sat at a large, comfy booth and relaxed over dinner and many glasses of wine.
It's a busy hotel but it doesn't feel like it. I was never bothered by noise, never had to wait for desk service, valet, anything for more than a minute or two.
I did fill out a survey and noted that the only flaw I found was a spot in the room where someone had been a little mean to the carpet. The manager took the time to write me and thank me for my review and also to let me know that the carpet would be repaired soon as a renovation was coming. I'll definitely check this hotel out again after the renovation. I like Kimpton's style so I'm curious to see how it turns out. Great to have someone actually respond to my review though.
Great hotel. I'd stay again.
