The service was terrific and the valet team of Casey, Kyle, Jason and Jesse were amazing. The food and restaurant were great and the coffee stands always filled. Room service was prompt. ATM is a good idea.

Hotel's Favourite
The hotel and rooms are beautiful. I enjoyed their game room and fitness center and practiced some yoga in the room since they provide a mat in the room. Social hour was very nice. The wine and specialty drink of the day were excellent. There was plenty of sitting area in the lobby for socializing. The location was ideal for walking up and down the one street that had plenty of restaurants, music and shops. I had a quiet room (445) and it had a nice view of the RJ Reynolds smokestack and the Church street parking garage that was free on the weekends. I did not utilize the valet since the garage was free and so close by. The coffee downstairs was great as well as the staff! The only negative was that there was no housekeeping during out stay. I hope they bring back the room cleaning as other hotels are doing. When I am back in Winston-Salem, I will be staying here!!

Our stay at the Kimpton was unfortunately short but that didn’t stop us from having a wonderful stay at this beautiful hotel. Our room was gorgeous and clean. Casey, Kyle, Jason, and Jesse with the valet team made our checkout a breeze with excellent bag service and speedy recovery of our vehicle. My husband and I can’t wait to stay here again.

We stayed here for two nights but weren’t aware at check in that this was a pet friendly hotel. We were given a room on the sixth floor and as the afternoon wore on, we heard several dogs barking non stop. We asked the front desk if there were pet free floors and requested to be moved to one of the two pet free floors. Once moved, the stay was great. It’s a beautiful hotel and the beds are super comfortable. Great location, beautiful bar and the restaurant has the most amazing menu - very very delicious.

The room was very clean and very spacious. We loved the bathroom with the huge tub in the wall. The Beds where very comfortable. The Valet attendent was very professional and on time with my vehicle. We will definitely be staying again in the near future. Thanks again Kimpton.
