Out-of-the-way but I like it, for the most part

Mahwah, New Jersey

This was our second visit to this hotel, but the first visit was around four years ago so it has been some time. This Kimpton is waaaay on the west side of Manhattan, and for those readers not familiar with the island, know that there isn't an awful lot that is comfortably walkable from this location (other than Gotham West Market, the cruise terminal, or a bunch of car dealerships). However, since it's so close to the Hudson River, you do get the benefit of some lovely views. Nevertheless, quick cab rides will get you to all kinds of stuff. We prefer boutique hotels these days, and this is a nice one. The building is a former printing factory, and the newly renovated rooms are comfortably industrial chic. You'll notice a number of nods to the building's history as well as to its location near the piers of the Hudson. Now that Kimpton is part of IHG, my hubby's IHG Ambassador membership resulted in us getting a large, airy Junior Suite. This meant that we had huge windows, a king bed, a vanity area, a sitting and dining area, and a bathroom that you could do cartwheels in. There were lots of good things about this suite. For example, the fridge wasn't one of those where when you move an item they charge you, so I was able to get some of our own bottles of water, sports drinks, etc. in there. The bed was comfortable, the HVAC worked well, the lighting was nice, and the colors were calming (whites and tans with pops of navy and black). There were a few issues -- when we first arrived, inches from our room's door in the hallway was somebody's used wine glass with a napkin stuck in it. Also, when we pulled back the sheets on the bed, the fitted sheet had some stains on it, even though it clearly had been laundered. Of course we called down to the front desk and these things were rectified while we were out at dinner. Details matter to me, though, and I would have expected these oversights not to have happened. Speaking of details, while another thing I like about Kimptons and this place is that they have big glass containers of water with cucumbers, oranges, etc. in them so that you can sit in the lobby and have a little refreshing moment. We went to do this and found that both of the urns had barely any water in them (we managed to squeak out two small glasses). The front desk staff were maybe five feet away and we had to go and tell them about this. The containers were clear glass and all it would take is a glance over there once in a while to make sure they are filled by someone. To me, a hotel is truly excellent when amenities they offer are always available when they should be, without asking. Again, it's the details. The staff we encountered were pretty much all really nice to talk with. While not the hotel's fault, fyi, when we were there we were woken up very early by some very loud construction jackhammers at a property adjacent to the hotel. So if this is important to you and you are looking to book in the near future, you may want to inquire about the construction going on nearby. The rooftop lounge and the restaurant lounge (both I reviewed separately) are worthwhile visits.
