    Loved my corner room. Very clean. They don’t have a hot tub though. Just the outdoor pool. And the in room menu food was not very good for the price. More like 3 star food.

    Staff were really friendly, excellent service and the room was very pleasant to stay in. The location of the hotel is also very conveniently located right downtown close to all restaurants, shops and places of importance.

    Great Hotel; Horrible Beds

    Overall, the Kimpton was a very nice hotel. The staff are extremely friendly, and the hotel is beautiful. Unfortunately, the bed and pillows are terrible, so it makes the entire stay less pleasurable. I was also placed in a room that was directly on top of the kitchen vents, so it always smelled like cooked meat, and that is not appealing to a vegan.

    Excellent location and close to everything. Easy access to restaurants and the waterfront is a short walk away. The location is not the best as night so be aware of your surroundings but overall quite excellent.

    Interesting decor but the service was lacking and the ventilation system made the room smell like food. Disappointing.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property is fine.HOWEVER, as you check in they foist on you a charge of $25 for an amenity card. This is not optional. I had no use for any of these $25 in any kind of amenity. This amount to a $25 surcharge. Not cool. Much rather they had told me at the time of booking that the room was $25 more. This is underhanded treatment of guests. I will not stay at a Kimpton hotel again

    Good location. Food at Curadero is just ok. Not happy about $25/day fee when they are not a resort
