Weekend visit with husband. Always try to stay at Kimpton in large cities. Very convenient location, accommodating staff, super wine hour as usual, will definitely return soon. Location close to many restaurants. Went to Flower Show. Able to walk to most places of interest.

This hotel is literally gorgeous. I didn't know I reached the hotel because I was following my gps but stopped for a photo op of this beautiful hotel that I realized was where I was staying for the night. I stayed in a king spa room on the 21st floor. Views and room is amazing. Bathtub has seats for two...

John F - Wow, I am blown away by the review. The not so hidden gem in our building are the spa rooms. They are my personal favorite as well and provide the mecca of relaxation with the jacuzzi tubs. I don't want to take away from the staff as you noted and I really hope to see you back...

Like my title says, the hotel provided a great stay and couldn't have asked for much more. Very accessible from the train station (Cost us $10 to get too). Once you get there they have staff on the door constantly to open the door for you and help you etc. Check-In was swift and the workers were helpful in regards...

The hotel is conveniently located, newly updated with trendy fun furnishings. Check-in was fast and efficient. The room was small with no comfortable seating other than the bed (there was a desk chair). I liked the fact that they advertise that it is a yoga-friendly hotel with a yoga mat in the room, complimentary fruit and water available from room...

Linda6062206 - Thank you for joining us. I apologize the yoga channel was not available and will have that corrected ASAP. Since the building was retrofitted from an old office building, the rooms have a variety of sizes. I recommend any of the City View room types and you will always have plenty of space for in-room yoga. We also...

As usual a fantastic Kimpton Hotel. The location is perfect for restaurants, walking around the City, and close to Historical areas. Checking in was a breeze and the staff could not have been more attentive. Joseph ( I think) brought our bags to the room and had great knowledge about the area and where to go. Again, service was up...

Booked a weekend stay at this hotel as a surprise for my husband's birthday! Check-in was fast and simple. I booked the CityView Spa King Room and it was comfortable. You must spend some time in the jetted, deep-soaker tub in the bathroom -- totally worth it! To our surprise, a complimentary bottle for wine and dessert was delivered to...
