I always enjoy Kimpton Hotels. Never had a problem at one. Here's the rundown:
-Location - very close to all major shopping in downtown Seattle, the Public Library, and walkable to places like Pike Place Market, Century Field, Safeco, etc. Or a 5 minute cab ride will get you to any of those places or to Capitol Hill, etc.
-Bed was very comfortable (not too hard, not too soft) and came with 3 densities of pillows to choose from;
-Free wine hour from 5pm-6pm daily;
-Friendly staff - always willing to give directions and held open the door, etc;
-The hotel was clean and well kept and felt modern despite it's age;
-You get a $5 restaurant / room service credit for waiving housekeeping;
-Wi-Fi is free if you sign up for Kimpton InTouch membership.
-$39 for valet parking - OUCH;
The rest is mostly little stuff, but it's what separates good from great:
-There were wine glasses on the minibar but no hi-ball glasses - how am I supposed to drink the whiskey/vodka/gin/etc?? Didn't like having to call down for it.
-One towel was stained;
-Kleenex was cheap / scratchy;
-No free water.
-There is a full length mirror running the wall beside the bed. We thought it was fun but some people might find it tacky (See attached photo).
-Didn't use the pool (is there one?) or the restaurant so I don't know how they are.
-Got the room for $78 (weekday) on Priceline by bidding for a 4 star hotel in downtown/Pike Place. I've Pricelined in Seattle 3 times and twice they gave me a Kimpton hotel at a rate much lower than the rack rate.
