Before making my reservation I considered the large number of consistently poor reviews. But I really like the Philly and D.C. Kimptons, and so I took a chance. Part of the hotel is basically a remodeled motel from the 1960s/70s. Tiny rooms stuffed too full, aged fixtures, and rooms. Too much crap on the dresser taking up precious space. It’s greedy and inconsiderate to put a vending box out, in addition to the mini-bar. The room was so jammed full, it was claustrophobic. The remodels over the years have been third rate. After complaining, we were told the tower rooms cost more but I don’t recall being given the information that there were two classes or rooms. It’s not on their website either. Trust me, the photos on the web are nothing…nothing even close to reality. I blew it and over-paid for what was a huge disappointment.
The Kimpton brand is nearly unrecognizable aside from the worn cheeky touches here and there. One wonders why someone with corporate doesn't review the property and make the necessary changes. It causes me to question the brand. And finally…I don’t need a desk clerk to tell me…hey this is a good deal for Aspen. (Not exact words) And it is not true. There ARE better values in town.
I echo the words of another reviewer: Don't stay here.
