Great location, funky modern lobby, nice reception area and staff. Loved the adjoining restaurant/bar with friendly staff, (especially bartender Joe) good wines. I had written to say we would be checking in early, and a room was ready for us at around 12:30 when we got there. Very large room, well furnished, nice bed, great bathroom. Weirdly, there was a tray of fruit and cheese and a half bottle of wine with a note addressed to Mr. Rowe (who I am not!) We called down to the front desk and they said no problem, just enjoy. Well, the cheese was sweaty and looked like it had been there from the night before so no, thank you. Then noticed there was no bar hand soap or any shampoo in the bathroom. As we went out for lunch, we stopped by front desk and asked them to remove the old food tray and bring soaps and shampoo. This was done by the time we returned. Darn, they took back the half bottle of wine, too! Oh well, wasn't ours anyway!
Love the oversized soaking tub with jets. you can slide a door open and watch TV from the tub!Not so happy with the shower as for some reason, because of the design and slanted door, water leaks all over the bathroom floor. Also, the sink is cool, but definitely form over function. Get ready to be splashed.
Rooms are not very soundproof due to the very heavy doors and the loud slamming noise they make, especially when partiers return at like 3 a.m. As with all Kimpton hotels I have stayed in, no fan in bathroom. Too bad as this could really cut down on the hall noise.
I had written them an e mail before arrival that it was my husband's birthday weekend. They delivered a nice bottle of bubbly and some chocolate covered strawberries. Nice touch, although the card with it wished ME a happy birthday. It was funny, not really an issue.
We will probably stay here again, loved the location, staff was nice, good value. There were a few kinks but no big deal. I would love a box fan in the room to negate the noise, though.
