Kimpton Hotel Vintage Seattle

Seattle, USA

Virgin rating

The hotel

It’s not called ‘Vintage’ for nothing — this is the Grand Cru of Seattle hotels, with interiors, wine lists, and social get togethers, all under the influence of Washington State’s wine country. It may be in downtown Seattle, but step into this boutique retreat and you may feel like you’re in a tasting room, surrounded by earthy shades blended with grape greens and burgundy. It’s the perfect place to sample the region’s fine tipples, with a complimentary wine hour every evening. Why not move on to the award-winning Tulio Ristorante, where you can tuck into Italian classics that come with a fresh Northwest twist — and a wine cellar of course.

Where is it

In downtown Seattle, on Fifth Avenue, in one direction you’ve got Pioneer Square’s preppy bookstores and galleries, and in the other you’ve got Pike Place Market, Westlake Center, and Pacific Place’s gourmet food and fashion. It’s also just a short walk from the waterfront, a block from the business district, and a few blocks from art and culture, including Seattle Art Museum (SAM), Benaroya Symphony Hall, and 5th Avenue Theater.

This is not up to the standard of a Kimpton hotel the reception area was very small there were very limited facilities. We stayed for 7 nights and they do not service the rooms we had to keep asking at reception for things one day we asked for fresh sheets and they were just left on our bed. If I wanted to make my own bed I would have stayed at… Read more
This is not up to the standard of a Kimpton hotel the reception area was very small there were very limited facilities. We stayed for 7 nights and they do not service the rooms we had to keep asking at reception for things one day we asked for fresh sheets and they were just left on our bed. If I wanted to make my own bed I would have stayed at home. There is also no breakfast and there is nowhere local to get breakfast. Overall I would stay at another hotel. The location is fairly good and some staff very friendly. Read less

Whilst there's an adjoining restaurant, there aren't any other facilities beyond a small reception area. The valet was very helpful and delivered great service. Read less

The Kimpton Vintage is located quite convenient near the famous and nice public library close to the Waterfront and Pike Market as well as the Westlake Center, a nice small shopping center and a place of several public transports. The rooms are well equipped and everything worked fine, the design is certainly not the most modern, but there is a reason that the hotel is called "Vintage" and its quite nice. The Hotel also hosts an Italian restaurant but at least when I was there did not offer breakfast. The problem with the Hotel is the staff, at least when I was there. They only clean the rooms on request. This is ok for me, especially if - like I recently had it in a Hilton Hotel - the Hotel donates the savings, plants trees from it or so and does not just save cost to increase the margin under the cover of the environment. BUT: Guests must be made aware of this! When I booked there was no hint on the website and I was not informed about it when I checked in. So when I returned after my first day, my room was not cleaned - but in the expectation of a cleaning I had thrown my towels on the ground. So I went to reception to complain and they explained to me that they only do it upon request. I complained that they did not tell me and said that I want it done every day from now on. They confirmed and took a note. When I returned the next afternoon, it was again not cleaned. Now I was pretty upset, complained again, but all that the guy at reception could say that he does not think he checked me in because he would have told me for sure. Wow, that was clever and helpful. He promised that it will be done next day and offered me a free drink from the shop (which I should have gotten upon arrival anyway because of my status in IHG). Frankly spoken, seeing the fact that they failed twice I did not find that sufficient. At least, the next afternoon, the room was cleaned. I had given a feedback also on the IHG Feedback page about a week ago and had market that I would like to get a comment from the hotel. The Hotel did not see a need to comment yet, which somehow fits into the overall picture of the staff. Read less

I booked this as a surprise staycation for my fiance. He hadn't had a day off in a long time. Thought this would be fun to get out of the house. I booked on hotelsTonight.com Later called the hotel to see about have an amenity brought to the room. I wasn't epexcting much because it was a hotelstonight booking and last minute. Natalie, at the front desk answer and was FANTASTIC. She verified my booking and took care of the amenity request. She was sweet and accommodating. When we got to the hotel, she was there to great us, upgraded our room too ( wow). we had such a nice time. The hotel also offered a happy hour in the lobby, wine and mingle with other guests. I'm really happy with this hotel, would definitely stay there again. thank you Natalie for everything :-) Read less
