There is SO much to see & do, and the best part is that it is all within walking distance of the hotel. There is a NORDSTROM Rack store literally right across the street from the hotel! The first day of my stay I went there and got the most amazing deals on a dress shirt, socks, dress shoes and a Kenneth Cole carry-on piece of luggage. The bar & restaurant are also excellent. There really is too much to love about this property, and I HIGHLY recommend it to ALL!!!
Pros: The location is amazing! The staff is super friendly and so accomodating and eager to help. You will LOVE this property!!! Oh, and don't forget to be there for the social hour starting at 5:00pm for complimentary wine! :-)

Pros: Very nice hotel . Super busy and noisy street so nighttime noise was more then I wished for.
Cons: Staff was excellent. And I mean excellent. 10/10. The restaurant in associated with the hotel was also terrific. Little pricey but the foot was very good 8+/10. I paid for suite upgrade $100 and it was worth it.

Pros: Great bathrobes. Wine hour in the afternoon. Staff were extremely nice
Cons: No coffee maker in room. No shower caps. Space for wine hour cramped for size of hotel. Only popcorn served. Have stayed other Kimpyon properties where light snacks served.

Pros: The hotel is beautiful and the staff is friendly. I was initially disappointed to have a room with a handicap-accessible shower but the shower head was amazing so I ultimately didn't care. The room was comfortable and the TV had premium channels!
Cons: My room was the handicap-accessible room right next to the elevator; there was a dog in a nearby room that barked pretty much non-stop during my entire stay; the ironing board in the room is a miniature desktop one and isn't very effective.
