Not impressed
Booked the Canary presidential suite the room is wonderful however the couch need to be replaced, as well as the couches in the Juliet suite/Juliet balcony they are stained old and worn out. I would not stay there again. I must say that there is personnel shortages however, the staff that i dealt with were pleasant considering they were busy. Compliments to the valet guys for being so courteous even though they were super swamped.

Loved The Canary!
The Canary is a beautiful hotel. The roof deck pool area is gorgeous. We sipped on some very spicy bloody Marys in the pool on one of the hotter days. The hotel is walking distance to many great restaurants in the downtown area. We stayed in one of the smaller suites and really liked the layout of the room, the gorgeous tile in the bathroom and the Moroccan-style star lanterns over the sink really added to the high-end feel. The bed was very comfortable and linens were luxurious. I was a little disappointed to see a significant level of wear and tear on the furnishings. It took a bit away from the experience. Other than that, we enjoyed staying there. The customer service was excellent.

Tired but go
The check in process was quite slow, largely because of the nice amenities the told me that I WILL NOT be getting because I booked through your site. We chose the hotel because of their pet policy and the valets were super helpful and friendly, but there was not good access to public grass areas for dog relief so their policy was not as helpful as we would have hoped. The walk to anything requires you to traverse urine smelly areas in all directions. The rooms are tired and poorly laid out (our suit was at least ). 3 tvs but very little space to move. They appear to be starting a reno soon which may really help. $40/night for parking is stiff given the $500+ rate and resort fee. Location is quite central.

April 23-25
Its a great hotel but the bar and pool where closed because of construction. If I would have know before booking I would have stayed somewhere else. One of the main reasons I booking the Kimpton was because of the pool.

This hotel should be shuttered Kimpton properties should be embarrassed to offer this place for visitors . I don’t think it would even pass for a homeless center . I checked out before I could even check in Hotels should get properties

4/10 Fair

Horrible. Booked a 2 day trip to this place and we checked out after 1 night. It was under renovations, pool/ jacuzzi was closed I asked for balcony and I got a juliet balcony. What is that anyway a door with a rail. I want a balcony. The worst thing of it all is that they are still charging $866 a night with all taxes. That seems like taking advantage of people, because you don't get your monies worth. No R and R by the pool, not good for business. I would like to come back another time when there is no construction and pool with bar is all done, because it is a nice place, when they got there stuff together.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Some construction going on, but nothing that bothered our stay. Had some trouble sleeping due to windy conditions causing flags outside our window to make noises all night. Would stay again.
