    Try another hotel chain
    Shower only room with head at the top, no shower cap given so hair gets wet :( Toilet ran all night and handle on bathroom door was broken. Bed slept ok but place seems run down. Treadmill in gym broken and bathrooms on 2nd floor open to all guests were disgusting. Very disappointing first kimpton stay, we won’t be going back to the chain again.

    Great hotel overall. Location was superb. I know Kimpton for their service so was surprised when it was not up to its usual standard. Coffee was depleted in morning as well as cream. No bath towels in room. Only discovered when I came out of the shower. Ouch!!!

    Nothing Special but inexpensive
    I was slightly disappointed in this property. I stayed at the Kimpton Mason Rock (a few blocks away) on my last trip and it was superior. This property is in need of an overhaul which is ongoing but I was not made aware of the renovation prior to checking in. I did make the reservation on and got a great rate so the value for the room was excellent. For one night it was not a bad choice.

    Waited a long time to get checked in, room was never cleaned for the 3 nights we were there, room service was awful. Hotel was a bit unkempt (stains on carpet, dirty rugs in elevator).
