    Staying here? Free wine in the lobby in the evening, coffee in the morn, candy jars in between times. Tan on the 17th Floor sundeck that's secreted away at the end of the hallway

    Awesome rooftop deck.

  • Bachelor10

    The rooftop terrace is a solid place to impress a new friend (no, not the Bachelor’s weird high school buddy) but keep in mind it shuts down at 10pm and is seasonal. Read more

    Ask for a room on the top floors and away from the loud noise of State street. Views aren't as good but you'll sleep better.

    Amazing hotel but... Right by the fire station so ask for ear plugs. Aside from that, incredible overall experience.

    I like free amenities! Try Echo Limousine (773-774-1074) to Palomar Hotel for $60, up to 3 passengers! Free bottled water and current magazines in spotless new cars.

    Amazing, as all Kimpton hotels are. Every service point addressed.. Sable- restaurant onsite- has most unfriendly bartenders and obviously not being run by same customer thoughtful management .

    Great rooms, terrace and pool. Beware that most rooms on the penthouse floor are connecting rooms so you better hope your neighbors aren't 40 dudes playing poker.

    Kimpton has outdone themselves again! Stunning rooms, comfortably hip restaurant Sable, and ultra hospitable and knowledgeable staff.

    Make sure to ask the front desk for good breakfast options

    The valet is a bit confusing... The driveway looks like you have to drive up onto a small sidewalk. They also can't recommend any other close garages

    Hotel excelente, muito vem localizado e atendimento maravilhoso.
