Disappointing and poorly planned
As far as Kimpton properties go (and hotels in general), this one was a disappointment. We started off our visit with an incredibly rude valet, which set the tone for our trip, I think. The front desk staff were very friendly and the lobby is nice enough, but that’s about all the property has going for it. It’s missing much of the character both in the public spaces and in the rooms that we’ve become accustomed to at other Kimptons. The room was not cheap, even accounting for the area, and the room is SMALL. As in, we’ve stayed at hotels in Europe that are significantly larger than this one. It’s basically a bed and a bathroom. What’s worse, the bathroom is located at the foot of the bed (a step or two from it) with a sliding door that doesn’t close all of the way. Our “corner room with a view” looked out to the wall of the building jutting out. The TV was on the small side, outdated and poorly placed on the desk. But perhaps the biggest issue we had with the hotel was the noise. The walls and doors are unspeakably thin; to the point we could hear the mood music the folks across the hall were playing (at a perfectly reasonable volume) from our bed. And just before 6 AM, what I can only assume is a storage closet of some sort next to our room began to be used. It was open and slammed shut at least a dozen times before 8. It was so loud that we both woke up thinking someone had come into our room and shut the door. Overall, a disappointing visit we won’t be attempting again.

Labor Day weekend getaway.
Loved the location - perfectly neutral. The restaurant was very good - nummy food & drinks. The staff was great, very helpful - i liked the hotel's texting to check in, so i could report a phone issue, without actually being there. I think the cleaning could be a bit better. used glasses not picked up for a couple days, no replacement glasses.... The room was a little bit dated, but the bed was awesome, which is very important to us. We had a spa suite, which was a great size, nice fancy bathroom. And great pool area.
