We held our rehearsal dinner and welcome reception at the Kimpton this past August and booked a block of rooms for our out-of-town guests.
The service the whole weekend was awesome. We especially appreciated the thoughtful celebratory touches including the champagne, the wine, cheese plate, and the sweets that were sent to our room- it definitely made us feel extra special that weekend.
We had our rehearsal dinner in one of the meeting rooms. The ambiance was great for our small gathering of people and everyone said they enjoyed the dinner- we had a taco bar and veggie platters, which fed aprox. 30 people. The hotel was also very accommodating in letting us bring in a cake for my mother-in-law's birthday for a small cake cutting fee. We also were able to bring in our own AV equipment at no extra charge. We then moved the party to the rooftop deck for the welcome reception. The rooftop deck and the pool area was such a cool venue to have everyone hang out the night before the wedding! Everyone raved about the grilled cheese station and the desserts that we had for our guests. The views from the deck are especially cool with all the lights during the night time. Our guests also enjoyed the bar area and Jane Q, the restaurant down in the lobby area.
The one thing I would provide constructive criticism around is improving communication between the event staff and the front desk/valet staff. Several times during the weekend, it seemed like the people working the front desk/valet staff were unfamiliar with the fact that a big party was staying there for a wedding (for example, the valet staff did not know we had already paid for parking and they tried charging our guests for it although it had been taken care of already). After having done so much planning and arranging several events with the hotel to ensure the quality of our guests' stay for the weekend, this was a little frustrating.
Overall we had a great weekend! Thank you for everything!

We hosted our rehearsal dinner and henna party on the rooftop terrace last November (2017). In doing some research, I found the hotel before they even opened, in their last few weeks of construction. We ended up looking at the space when it was still a hard hat zone, and immediately loved it. The hotel is beautiful, modern and hip, but still retains the high level of Kimpton service that you don't always find at other establishments. We could not have been happier with the event. The staff was exceptionally organized, communicative and friendly. Their team executed everything perfectly, and to be honest... We may have been even more satisfied with this event that we ended up being with our wedding day! The food was delicious, the space was perfect. I can't say enough good things about it and look forward to hosting more events there in the future.
