"A wonderful stay and friendly staff"
I am glad to be a Kimpton Karma Tier 2 member and glad I had a staycation here. The staff was welcoming and very helpful. We were upgraded to a suite and while we waited for the room George Williams offered my wife and I a glass of wine. This was a nice gesture that I really appreciate. When we got back to our room later in the evening there was a welcome amenity of a cheese plate and local San Diego beers. One of the other reasons we stay at Kimpton hotels is the awesome wine hour. George remembered my name at the wine hour. Upon checkout the next day George remembered my name again and welcomed me at the front desk with a Mr. Henry how was your evening' Kimpton is the best chain of hotels I have ever stayed in. They really know how to treat their guests. I always feel like a VIP when I am at a Kimpton. Looking forward to making it to the Inner Circle one day.
"Some things to like, but overall not quite."
I've stayed in a few Kimpton's so arrived with some expectations for a four night stay. The good' Location, walk to the Gas Lamp and waterfront area. The room was well stocked and of good proportions with a pleasant outlook. Facilities like the pool and gym were reasonable. Value was good. The bad' A very confused interior design. I'm not sure what they were going for here, but from lobby to lift to room, there's an unusually mismatched aesthetic, and not in an intentional way. But worse was the shower. In the hundreds of hotels I have stayed, this one takes the prize for the most like a firehose. Overall, adequate but not particularly memorable.
"Great location, super friendly helpful service"
I emailed ahead asking for a walk in shower as my husband had knee surgery. They gave us a beautiful suite overlooking the pool. We loved the room, which had a private outdoor sitting area. The people were all very friendly, helpful and genuinely nice 100% of the time. Good selection in the in room bar/snack area. Fun happy hour in the hotel bar. The buffet food during my conference was plentiful and delicious. We loved the pool deck area that had gas fire pits and big tvs. The location in he Gas Lamp District was very convenient.
"Great hotel in the heart of the Gaslamp District"
Good, quiet room on the 10th floor, they remembered we don't like to be near the lift (elevator, if you must). Terrific staff - friendly and efficient. The Happy Hour is fun and we like the pool on the 4th floor. We have stayed there several times before and look forward to returning.
Great location right on the Monster Bash! Got a free upgrade to a killer suite fully stocked with booze and snacks. It was like a nightclub in our room and we LOVED it! We were fully warned and knew it would be over by midnight so "Party On Garth!" Really awesome upstairs pool bar! Over 21 at 9pm. Firepits and great views! The champagne cocktails in the morning set up straight! Staff was amazing and fun. Room was beautiful, modern and cool. Thank you George for taking care of us. So happy and memorable night!
