    There really wasn't anything.

    The hotel was very blah. It felt like it had no personality. It seems like it was trying for a character then fell short. They cramp a King size bed in way too small of a room (such that it is uncomfortable). Their food was overpriced for what it was.

    Very historic property and we checked in early. We got a wonderful corner room. Totally made the experience better

    Nope. It was great

    I've stayed here before and enjoy it. It is an older hotel with character. The location is about a block from Union Square so convenient. The bed was very comfortable. If you are an IHG member, there are extra perks such as free coffee in the restaurant, a wine hour on the mezzanine and an option for a $10.00 credit to "raid the mini-bar" or 400 points. There were shades for the windows that still let the light in and block out curtains when needed. There were a lot of electrical outlets at the desk.

    I would have liked a coffee maker in the room and electrical outlet by the bed. The bathroom is tight with very little counter space although there were shelves above the toilet. The mini-bar prices were a bit high.

    The ONLY perk to this property is it’s location, but that’s about it.

    The room was very small and cramped. The gentleman at the front desk was not warm and welcoming. Parking valet is $70/night! I would not stay here again.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Kimpton. The staff was welcoming, helpful, and cheerful. The complimentary coffee and wine hour is amazing! I will definitely be coming back to the Kimpton to stay.
