The hotel is in a great location. It is in walking distance from the Megabus. There is a fruit stand with the most delicious fruit on the corner. They have a gym with a few cardio machines and a multi-exercise weight machine. Each cardio machine had it's own TV. The hotel even provides disposable earphones. The gym has a water cooler.
The room: The bed was absolutely comfortable. I had the best night sleep I've had in months. Some of the rooms have a bathroom with a door. A few of us had a bathroom with a full length mirrored sliding door. There's a lovely big-enough flat screen television with limited channels. But, they do offer a channel with a few exercise videos/stations. The channels offered: meditation, a couple of yoga options (I tried one and loved it), core conditioning, and a believe strength training. It's perfect! They even provide the yoga mat in the wardrobe.
The staff was OK, nothing over the top. Some of my friends and I asked for a 1pm check out and was offered only a 12:30 pm check out. There was a discrepancy with the mini bar, and I was told that someone would be up to do inventory. An hour later, I called again to get an update because no one had followed through as promised. 20 minutes later, a person just came in to replaced the missing items. She never did an inventory.
Kimpton has an afternoon reception in the lobby. To my surprise, the small lobby was full. They not only offered wine, but had vodka cocktails as well.
The hotel was quiet and clean which we all appreciated. They offered fresh fruit (although many were bruised). I've wanted to visit this hotel for awhile and am glad they had availability.
I am a loyalty member which entitled me to raid the mini bar up to $15.00. It also gave me free WiFi. That is something to consider before choosing the Kimpton hotel.
The housekeeper was very pleasant, When there was a fire drill/alarm, the housekeeper joked with me and said I will make sure I save you. That made me smile.
Overall, it is a good hotel. I think the front desk staff could have been a little more flexible with the extra 30 minute check out.
