    Hotel was nice. As were staff. Never found the gym. Did not like that it did not have a microwave oven.

    I cannot imagine how anyone who stayed here became comfortable when waterflow in the shower is EXTREMELY poor. We requested to be moved to a different room because of this but was told by the hotel receptionist that it's the same in all the other rooms.

    Loved it, but could love it more. . .
    Very friendly staff -- all around. Lobby nice, but seems like renovation should be done sometime soon (restaurant apparently is underway). Was disappointed bot to have access to rooftop area because it was closed for the season after Oct 31. The views from up there are stunning and the seating areas are perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the afternoon. We had access on Oct 31 (lovely!) but then not on the following 2 days of our stay (boo!) The amenity fee of over $25/day doesn't seem necessary -- why not just include in the room price. After all, this is a Kimpton. Let's not nickel and dime the guests, shall we?
