My wife and I statyed at a Kimpton in DC (Hotel Helix) last year and it was a nightmare.

Beds too soft, dried blood on the wall and bedsheet, super small bathroom, the carper in the halls was worn and the paint in the halls was so thin you could see the wallpaper underneath, only 1 of the 2 very small elevators were working (the avg. wait for that one to get to our floor or the lobby was about 15 minutes) and roomservice closed at 9pm.

We wound up leaving the next morning even though our reservations were for 6 nights. The staff didn't even bother to ask why we were cutting our stay short.


I've stayed at 2 Kimpton hotels - Hotel Madera in DC and Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge. Both stays were terrific - the hotels were clean, eclectically decorated and the service terrific. We look for a Kimpton hotel everytime we go away, and always stay at the Hotel Marlowe when we are visiting Boston.

The websites, however, leave a bit to be desired. The design attempts to match the flavor of the hotel and generally succeeds, but the usability and details of the navigation and general HTML construction miss a few marks.

Travel agents are the marketing tools of a hotel business. If they market well the subject, the hotel will be full every time. Attention to detail is very important.
