Although the rooms are a bit dated, they are perfectly clean and comfortable. Love the beds—well, for the most part. In our particular room, the bed had a footboard with large, heavy wooden posts on either side.

The Kimpton brand does not disappoint. We enjoyed a great few nights here, utilizing the valet parking, enjoying the bar upon return from the night out, and loving the quirky decor! The staff were friendly and helpful. The bathrobes are a hoot. So nice.
