We are very fond of Kimpton hotels and this one was no exception. It's stylish, chic and luxurious without being snooty. The staff was fantastic: they always greeted us warmly when we went through the lobby. And the bellhops were particularly great with help for cabs and directions, given that the hotel was on the Torchlight Parade route and mobs of people threatened to block the entrance and exit of the hotel and neighborhood. Great location with respect to attractions in downtown. Easy walk form the train station from the airport as well as to the monorail that goes to the Space Needle and all the museums surrounding it....and Nordstrom's! The restaurant (Sazerac) was great for breakfast, and we had one dinner there. The only deduction in points would be for having no oysters. Seriously? In Seattle, you're out of oysters?!!! Our room was on the 11th floor which is considered premier, although we could not figure out why it was different from the other floors except for the express elevator. Beautiful and comfortable, the interior design is always pleasing to this former designer. Beds/bedding comfortable and luxurious, well appointed with a Kuerig coffee maker, excellent flat screen, etc. Maid service was great and reliable. The only drawback was the lack of view: the brick wall of the building next door. The only rooms with any sort of view look out on 4th Ave. No water views here. But minor, unless you plan to stay in the room the whole time. Of course with Kimpton you get all sorts of fun goodies like free bike rental, complimentary wine tastings in the lobby at happy hour, and if you are afraid of being lonely, you can arrange for a pet goldfish to be sent to your room. Ha! They think of everything. That's why we're always loyal to this brand.
