This is a brand new hotel located on the south side of the historic area. It is a good location, within walking distance to shopping, various squares, good dining options, etc. Overall our stay was very positive. I'm leaving a more indepth review since this is a new spot, and there are a few things Kimpton could improve on.
The hotel is a low rise (three story) historic building located on Bay street, across from a park and the river. Situated in the middle of the hotel is a lovely courtyard. The pool and gym were not open yet.
The hotel is decorated in a stylish, fun and interesting way. Lots of unique touches when it came to design. The staff, while still having a few opening glitches, were great. Everyone is very friendly, helpful, welcoming, etc. I was very impressed with the level of customer service.
We had what was called a Queen Queen room. The layout of the room was interesting. First, when you entered there was a large sitting area with a t.v. (I believe there was a pull out sofa in the sitting area, but I didn't check) and mini bar area. The sitting room had a door which separated it from the closet/dressing area so it could be used as a separate room/sleep space. The closet/dressing area consisted of a good sized closet with a large vanity and sink/mirror area. The shower and toilet area was around the corner and closed off with a door. I liked that one could get ready at the mirror while another could shower. But, the closet opened up into that sink area so it ended up being tight as two were trying to dressed (since closet was really only storage area) and get ready. Also, there was no storage at all in the sink area. I really wish there had been some drawers or even shelves below the sink rather it was just open space which was a nice design but not usable. Also, they really need to add a trash can to the sink area. The shower/toilet was off the bedroom, nice design, but I found my showers look warm the entire time (not hot enough).
The bedroom had two good sized and comfortable beds. Along one wall was a long desk/table, with the t.v on one side and the desk on the other. What was lacking in the suite, in general, was storage. The space under the t.v. in the bedroom should have been a dresser. As it is, there were only two small drawers in the bedside table and no other spot beside the closet provided storage (so lack of storage in bedroom and bath).
We really liked the view of the park and the river, but be aware rooms that face Bay street (which is where the park and river are) have a lot of traffic noise and it starts early (even on the weekend). There was a lot of truck/traffic noise starting at 6 am.
We only had drinks and breakfast at Pacci, service was good, our breakfast was yummy. Hotel also offers coffee/tea service in the am and a wine happy hour in the pm which was a nice touch. The first night we missed the happy hour so the hotel gave us free drink coupons for Pacci.
Kimpton hotels are dog friendly, which as a dog owner myself I like, however we had one night where a barking dog was barking late at night. Obviously, that is not the hotel's fault (except that they allow dogs and not all dog owners are courteous), but it was an issue and I'm not sure how the hotel handles it when dogs become a nuisance to other guests.
Overall, our stay was wonderful. But, I hope the hotel will take the feedback and improve the few little glitches listed above.
