We changed from a different hotel which we weren’t happy with to the Kimpton and are so happy we did. The staff is amazing. The location is awesome. Right in the center of city and many things to do. Lots of dining, history and sight seeing. The room was clean, updated and peaceful.

I've been staying at the hotel for more than 20 years... it's always a pleasurable experience. I do miss the in room bar & snacks. I understand the adjustment made because of Covid... unfortunately the one night I returned and was led to use whatever is kept at the front desk was virutally empty.. all of it picked over

Nice stay, needs a little more cleaning.
This hotel was really comfy and well located. The people who we interacted with were really friendly and helpful, especially those working at the front desk in the evening time. (I needed to print something for work around 2 am and the women behind the desk was super helpful!) I do feel like this place has seen better days. My room didn’t feel like it had a thorough clean in a while. The shower had some major soap scum and the furniture had spots, like it looked like someone had spilled things and they just didn’t take the time to wipe down the furniture. They came off when I wiped the bedside stand with a wet washcloth. The leather head of the bed was sort of the same. The toilet was running when I came in and one of the light bulbs was burnt out. The room really was comfortable aside from this. The person I was traveling with and I hung out in the lobby, and it was nice and comfy. Overall I had a really nice time and would stay there again, but I do think the place needs a little TLC.

I can sum up this property in one word… worn. This property is tired. We had a broken drawer, doors on a cabinet that would not shut and a shower that leaked all over the floor. When I needed my car it took 30 to 45 minutes to get it. I have been traveling the USA for the past six months staying at hotels and Airbnbs. The Airbnbs we picked were nice, pricey but worth it. The Kimpton 90 was not. I would never stay here again or recommend this hotel.
