Great 4-star boutique hotel (part of the Kimpton chain).  I Priceline'd this hotel, and was very content with the (standard) room we received - decent size, very clean and comfortable (bed was super comfy; no couch).  All rooms are named after a Washington winery (kind of cute!).  Free WiFi was great, enjoyed the Aveda products!  The robes in the closet seemed a little strange (I think they were old-school animal print)...all in all, a very pleasant stay!  Front desk was also very friendly, and they accommodated our early check-in, late check-out!  Only minuses - no fitness center (but like Tiffany T. said, do you really need it?), and cabs weren't super easy to come by - the hotel hailed a couple of cabs for us (they shouted down the street in a way I don't think I could!), but there's also a taxi stand down the block and around the corner (so no big deal).  Pretty good location in the heart of downtown.  I would happily stay here again.

I recognize that I may be more critical of a hotel when staying for pleasure rather than work but I think that makes this a more helpful review. My husband and I chose HVP for our first night alone in 15 months (new parents). The lobby was suited for Christmas and smelled scrumptious. The front desk and valet were attentive. Room service, however, left something to be desired. We were hoping that would be a highlight where we might enjoy breakfast in bed and, knowing the reputation of Tulio, were expecting great things. Don't bother... pack a picnic. Bfst came without jam, butter, water, or the coffee cake we ordered. They did send it up right away when called down but the coffee cake was like sawdust. My eggs were cold and pancetta invisible. The room itself was cozy and we were sent wine and chocolates. The shower pressure was great and they even let us order a repeat movie after falling asleep... very nice touch. I would go here again... but just bring my own food.

Like it's name this hotel is like a great vintage wine. Don't be fooled by the old brick exterior, the room I stayed at is not short from luxury.  The hotel staffs are kind and answered all questions I had about transportation and restaurants recommendations.  The 5-6pm wine tasting is wonderful which adds value to my stay.  We stayed at the 3rd floor and we could hear a bit of noise because it is in the heart of downtown

We spent 4 nights at this hotel hoping we would enjoy it as much as the other Kimpton Hotel we stayed at in Boston this summer.  I'm now a devoted fan to this chain!  The service is wonderful,with very helpful staff, but never over-bearing.  The hotel is clean and nicely decorated with attention to detail.   Loved the location across from the library and an easy walk to Pike Place Market, the monorail to the Space Needle, and great shopping.  We used the Shuttle Express Downtowner to get to and from the airport, which was very reasonable ($25 round trip), and stops just around the block at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.  The night we arrived we were tired and it was late, so we ate in the hotel restaurant.  it was so delightful that we ate there again on our last night. Ditto to the sweet-potato gnocchi!  All the pasta is hand-made there by Rosa. Very reasonable breakfasts, too.  The evening wine-tasting is very low-key: you can stay and chat around the fireplace if you choose, but many took a glass of wine to their rooms.   Same with the morning coffee.  Definitely worth signing up for their frequent-stay program.

Very cozy hotel - I stayed here for an interview, and I was super impressed. Staff were very friendly, and it was quiet. Bed was VERY comfortable ... I recommend this place whenever I have friends and family coming into town. It's a little on a pricey side, but I think that it's reasonable for downtown.

Pleasantly surprised!
We started off super stoked..., my boyfriend and I purchased our reservations through Hotwire for $103 a night(!) and when we found out it was a Kimpton I thought "score!" but then I read the so-so reviews and had some concerns....

But I can tell you firsthand after a 3 night stay this last weekend... the snotty receptionist was nowhere to be found. Enter a nice pony-tailed gal with glasses, accommodating and eager to tell us as we arrived "You're just in time for our wine reception!"
We got to our room expecting a small cramped space with a queen bed only to find a decent sized room with a King bed and couch as well! The decor is a little dated & not my fave (I prefer more modern)-it's a classic old world style, but the sheets were clean and the bed was heavenly so I'm not complaining. I called in my Kimpton member number before hand (free by the way & worth while if you're staying there) and was happy to find complimentary Pellegrino sodas and shortbread cookies with a thank you card on the coffee table.
Other perks: DVD player, ridiculous leopard printed robes, cozy bedroom socks, well stocked mini-fridge, windows that actually open, free Internet access, and Aveda bathroom goodies.

GOOD TO KNOW:

If you're a wine drinker- the complimentary nightly wine receptions (5-6 PM) are not to be missed. Yes, you may find yourself surrounded by extremely white stuffy fuddy-duddy's but get over it, it's FREE WINE! Plus free pizza from the 4 star hotel restaurant Tulio if you're early enough. We had an awesome wine sommelier the first couple of nights who we ran into late one night in the elevator after an obviously heavily wine induced evening. He had a huge grin on his face when he yelled something to the effect of "Hey, it's you guys!" He was so rad, we wanted to take him back to Oakland with us.

Re: Room Service. We called room service 5 times and almost gave up. We called the front desk for a menu since there wasn't one in our room and gave up waiting, so walked down to pick one up. Ten minutes later someone dropped off the Tulio menu. NOTE- the room service menu and restaurant menu are different. The restaurant menu is less expensive, has different items, and the room service menu includes 20% gratuity and an additional service charge. We ended up calling the restaurant directly for food and avoided all additional charges including a tip (a savings of over $25!). The food was AWESOME. Seriously, I think the best meal we had in Seattle- I highly recommend the warm chocolate pudding cake with toasted meringue. Mmmmm....

Re: Parking. Yes, it's pricey, yes, you should probably tip which yeah, is an extra $3-5 depending just how thrifty you are... but damn is it convenient! It's so nice to be able to exit the 5 and avoid the craziness of the downtown mayhem by driving directly into the parking lot right off 5th Ave, and handing over your keys. We parked in the lot across the street the first night to save $4 and we definitely preferred spending the few extra bucks to stay at the hotel- no hassle and no worries about coming & going.

Stayed here for two nights during a side trip to Seattle while we were in Washington for a wedding.  Got in very late but the man at the front desk was so friendly.  He directed us to the crowne plaza just up a block to get something to eat even though it was past midnight.  The food was great.  They have tons of complimentary amenities including a clothing steamer which was great for my packed bridesmaid dress!  Also things like makeup mirrors, tooth brushes and the like were available.  The mini bar was stocked nicely and about average for mini-bars.  If it is your first stay as a kimpton in touch member you get to get $10 worth of mini bar items free.  That also gives you free wi-fi instead of paying.  Being a member is free! They bed was so comfortable and the feather pillows did not flatten like some reviews said.   They also had a foam one in the closet.  My room was on the 10th floor and had a great view of the library.  The bathroom was nice and well lit and I like that they had large pump shampoo's and the like to cut down on waste.  We did not eat at Tulio's but we did have a drink or two there. Alfredo was so nice and seemed genuinely interested in our trip. He also remembered us when we returned.  The drink prices were right on for Seattle although that is much higher then what we are used to.$9 for a cosmo.  I had a cappucino there as well and it was thebest of the 3 I had while in town.  We enjoyed the wine hour and got a glass of both the white and red the local vineyard provided.  It is a GREAT location.  It took maybe 10 min to walk to the market and it is a safe and enjoyable walk.  We also walked back to the hotel from Pioneer square which I wasn't sure was do-able for usbut we did.  It was also really close to the Rock bottom brewery for a great lunch.  Also just a few minute walk to westlakecenter where you can catch several types of transportation including the monorail.  The only reason I did not give it 5 stars was because I think $34 for parking is excessive for a guest.  Plus tax and tip that is HUGE. Parking in Seattle is outrageous no matter what but for a guest paying for a room it should be a little discounted in my opinion. Loved it and intend to stay there again if we come back

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and decided to book a room for some extra special fun and chose Hotel Vintage Park! GREAT CHOICE!! I had booked a standard King originally, and had read some reviews about upgrading to the Premier King. I called and talked to a lady at the front desk to see what the price difference was and if she thought it was worth it. Mean while during our conversation I had mentioned it was our anniversary she commented on loving to upgrade us for free, at this point I was excited! When we arrived to check in she had said that we had been up graded (which I knew she had said, but was thinking to the premium King little did I know)... WE WERE UP GRADED TO THE ST. MICHELLE SUITE!! The room was gorgeous! Massive spa pool and amazing shower with 6 different heads for maximum water coverage, We felt like royalty in the huge King bed and fire place!! The staff wrote us a hand written note congratulating us on our anniversary and if they could do anything to make our stay any better to let them know!! They even had room service bring up a complimentary bottle of red wine with mixed nuts and chocolate!! I have never stayed at a hotel before that genuinely cares about their guests, but this hotel knows customer service!! I strongly recommend this hotel to everyone wanting an amazing hotel in down town Seattle! We would love to make this a tradition for future anniversaries to come!

I have stayed at this property 4 times in the last year.  The staff is absolutely AMAZING.  Lane, Elizabeth, Josh, etc. just really "get" what customer service is all about.  The wine hour is a nice touch (get there early during the summer - loads of people!), fitness center is basic but has everything needed for a workout (including ropes and hula hoops along with yoga mats).  It is truly the staff that makes the difference here and why I will continue coming back.

I have to say i felt a little out of place here but it was amazing. it was a little much for a single guy just staying a night with leopard robes in the closet and clothes that they are selling. lol including leopard nighty and so on. lol i really wonder if people buy this stuff. the beds where comfortable and I got a great rate on this place. the reason i say i felt out of place is because there was a bentley parked outside and offered wine the minute i walked in the door. I'm simple. lol enjoy

I've always wanted to stay at this hotel, but could never justify the cost of staying here, especially when I live in Seattle as it is!  However, I had a special someone in town and I figured it would be fun to splurge.  I got really lucky and found a great internet deal on the Kimpton Hotels website (via kayak.com ) and got a room for only $139 (normally it's about $199/night).  Sweet!  The room included a king sized bed, tv armoire, a desk, two sitting chairs, and a side table.  It wasn't a large room, but for $139 I couldn't complain.  The room was very tastefully decorated and felt luxurious.  The bed was very comfortable and the linens were soft.  We did not want to get out of bed!  The bathroom was fairly large, which was nice.  The water pressure in the shower wasn't all that, but we lived.  

Their computer server was down when I checked in, so they couldn't give me a key.  Instead, they had a bellhop escort me to my room.  I left my room and returned about an hour later and the server was still down(!) and again, the bellman had to let me into my room, which was mildly annoying.  But no biggie.  About half an hour later, the bellman returned to deliver two room keys.  

The next morning, we asked for, and they promptly delivered a couple packets of Advil, for which they charged $2 + tax, but the relief they afforded our pounding heads was worth it. They also accommodated our much needed late check-out.  ;)  The parking was a hefty $28/night, FYI.  

I had a very enjoyable stay here and have always been a fan of all the Kimpton hotels (such as Hotel Monaco).  If you're ever in Portland, try staying at the sister hotel, called Hotel Vintage Plaza (not "Park").  It's just as fabulous, if not more!

Though I didn't know it at the time, it was Seafair that cockblocked my ability to get a room at my hotel of choice for an entire week.  I was a little uncertain of Hotel Vintage Park based on the pictures, but I was getting a fantastic price for a good location, and really, I needed a hotel.  So Hotel Vintage Park it was, and in hindsight, I had nothing to worry about.

The room was large , the staff formal but friendly, the wifi fast free and reliable, they had a free wine tasting happy hour from 5-6, and they even had *on-demand* GameCube games for $6.95 an hour.  And really, you should know by now that I'm a sucker for nice sheets.

My only nit?  Their housekeeping was the most meddlesome I've ever encountered:  In addition to morning cleaning, they would come in while I was out in the evening and turn on the radio (re-tuned from my NPR alarm to some soft-rock or light-jazz) and turn on all of the lamps in the room.  I don't think I slept through a single night with all of my lamps off.

And why oh why did they keep insisting on folding my dirty socks and underwear?

Having stayed in a bazillion hotels around the world, I give this place a solid three stars.  Totally acceptable.  It's not as stuffy as the Fairmont.  And heaps nicer than the Rennaissance Madison.

Good: Newer carpet, bedding, and draperies.  L'Occitane bath products.

Bad: Halls smell dank.  They haven't gotten the smoke smell out of the non-smoking rooms.

Meh?: Leopard-print robes.

Nicely renovated 'anitque' hotel.
The Vintage Park was beutiful, comfortable, and very convenient. The staff were great: smiling , helpful and more than willing to share their favorite Seattle hotspots. (see the Dimitriou's Jazz Alley reviews).
The room was average size but the linens and bath towels were better than all but a few exclusive hotels I've experienced. Everything worked perfectly, FREE wireless internet, the fitness room was clean and well-enough equipped, and the business center was handy.
Pike Place Market is within a 10 minute walk, as is The Triple Door and mass quantites a of night life and retail. There have to be 413 Starbucks with 5 minutes of the Vintage Park, seriously!
The wine tastings each evening are an interesting add-on, and having attended a couple, I'll admit I was impressed with the vintages on offer.
Only drawback to the whole experience was the twice nightly "wine bottle" dump (11pm and 1am) five floors below in the back parking lot. Admittedly, some of those were mine. 'nuff whinging...

Biggest bonus**- found the Vintage Park on both Hotels.com and Priceline.com for $$ off.

I LOVE Kimpton Group hotels and rarely ever get to stay in them, so when Vintage Park popped up with a sooper deal at $149/night, I leaped.

I will not go into what kind of a shitty day of screwy airport variety I had trying to get to Seattle, but the best thing about the day was that I ended up at the Vintage Park, where their staff helped me with all of my stupid heavy boxes and led me to an upgraded executive king suite with a Tempurpedic mattress.  I took a bath with all of the L'Occitane products, put on the leopard-print robe and ended my crap day on the right note.  

Also, Tulio, the Italian restaurant in the lobby, will bring you tiramisu at 4am if you want.  

Four stars only because parking is really really really expensive ($30 overnight), and the room temperature settings don't go over 75 degrees Fahrenheit; it's *chilly* and if I want my damn hotel room to be tropical, then I want to be able to make it that way.

Another great Kimpton property.

Great location.  Close to work for me, but also close to SAM, the (amazing) library, and some of the best restaurants and wine bars downtown (Wild Ginger, Purple, etc).  Pike St/Pl Market and Convention Center are 15-20 min walks away.  Easy.

The rooms are a bit smallish, and if you valet a car, call ahead in plenty of time to get it (the garage is one of those car elevator things and it just take longer than it does other places).  Those are the only downsides.  The staff is great - the restaurant is very good, and the living room is fun!

And, of course, Starbucks is close.

I stayed here in August for a few nights while I was in Seattle for a wedding.  This is a very nice boutique hotel.  Luxury amenities, very clean, great location and a pretty good price as well.  The Hotel Vintage Park takes great pains to include special extras for their guests. For example, about ten minutes after I arrived in my room, there was a knock on my door.  A member of the hotel staff was waiting outside to give me freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, a bottle of locally produced wine, a bowl of mixed nuts and a handwritten note welcoming me to the hotel.  Every afternoon the hotel provides complimentary Arnold Palmers (iced tea and lemonade) for the guests.  When I asked the front desk staff for restaurant recommendations they were very helpful.  I would give them a 4.5 if I could.  The Hotel Vintage Park does not merit a full 5 stars, in my opinion, because the decor is a bit dated and garish.  Also, the other hotel room doors on my floor all slammed very loudly and woke me up multiple times each night I was there.  They need to fix their doors so that they close more quietly when guests let them shut behind them. Besides my two minor critiques, I would not hesitate to stay here again!

I found this hotel so gross that I checked out after my first night and moved to another hotel.  How can this be a 4-star hotel??? The hotel was dark and dingy with a very depressing vibe.  The room was dirty; black hairs everywhere and I'm blonde.  The bathroom was so small you could hardly close the door while inside.  This was in a "king premier" room.  My room faced 5th avenue with a view of a lit up parking garage.  5th avenue is very loud, and I could hear my neighbors and even the person above me coughing.  Honestly, I felt like I was staying in a slum in Harlem.  I would only recommend this hotel if you want to wake up early, becuase you will want to get out ASAP.

I'm a big fan of Kimpton hotels - both the Alexis and Monaco in Seattle are great.  At only $20 cheaper, the Hotel Vintage Park is so not worth it.  Also, I am spoilt when it comes to hotels, frequenting hotels like the W, Westin, and other 4-stars.  This was like a low-quality Sheraton.

Two stars because the bed was somewhat comfortable.

Stayed here at the end of a trip to see friends in Seattle. Loved the decor and coziness of our room. Clean, well stocked and modern with a vintage feel, was a perfect spot to end our trip. Liked that the sheets/duvet were all washable- didn't worry about the cleanliness of a comforter that couldn't be run through the washer. Could have use an extra blanket in the room. Loved curtains that basically blocked all light, helped us sleep in and feel rested. Nice touches throughout room.  We didn't have time to use the fitness center or go to the restaurant, but nice they were both there. Lobby was very inviting, smelled great, and very sweet staff at every turn. The valet parking was a bit pricey ($34) but our aaa discount got us half off, which was nice. Super super nice valet attendants made us feel special as we ended our stay there. Highly recommend

We stayed at the Hotel Vintage Park over New Years.

Our party chose this hotel because of its dog friendly policy. Since we'd be out a good chunk of the night I didn't want to leave my dog at home all night on the other side of the sound.

Despite billing themselves out as a boutique hotel, I found their rooms to be more cookie-cutter Hilton than trendy and upscale. The lobby is very small and pretty useless for any function other than checking in. They tried serving champagne early in the evening to their guests but it was more like a rock concert it was so packed in that tinly lobby.

The fact that their rooms are named after local wineries and their name contains the word vintage, you'd think they'd have a stellar wine list. Not so.

The Vintage Park is an awesome getaway in the city.  The staff is great, and with their tenure, they'll probably recognize you if you're a frequent guest.  The rooms are very nice and really comfortable.  Oh, and there's nothing better than coming back to your hotel and having wine ready and waiting.

This place is a gem and you've gotta stay here for at least one night if you're going through town.

Couldn't have had a better time staying here with my girlfriend.  Tiny little lobby, but good-sized room on the top floor.  Lucked out and could see Mt. Rainier from the window when we woke up!  Very quiet, looking out on the park attached to the U.S. Courthouse across the street.  Also had a view of the funky Public Library.  Very nice staff, especially the guy who checked us in at 1am (late flight).  Easy walking distance to everything, though those hills-- oy vey!  Thank goodness the buses are all free in that area.  Overall: comfortable bed, clean, quiet, nice staff, and you can't beat a couple of cups of free wine each night at 5pm.

this turned out to be a great choice.  usually i stay closer to belltown, but i was swayed by the reviews and am glad i chose to stay here for the weekend.  the rooms were nice. i got upgraded to a king suite for being a kimpton member and also got my free wifi, my view was of an open space and the street not the adjacent building even though i was only on the 4th floor, and the complimentary coffee in the morning and wine/cocktail in the afternoon seals the deal.  dinner at the bar at tulio's, the restaurant in the hotel, was great (separate review).  the staff are nice and the location can't be beat.  i'm glad i didn't rent a car and have to deal with the crazy parking fees - i just took the metro link light rail from the airport for  $2.25 which dropped me 2 blocks from the hotel.  the rest of the weekend i just hoofed it (such a great walking city) and only needed a cab once to get to the other side of seattle.  so close to everything:  pike place market, downtown, 5th ave. theater, pioneer square, belltown, seattle art museum, shops, restaurants, the waterfront....

My friend and I stayed in this hotel for a week last summer on our trip to Seattle. I was really excited about it because it looked gorgeous and it was across the street from the Seattle Central Library. Our room was really luxurious and spacious. The bed would have to have been the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in. We ordered room service twice from Tulios, and while the food was good, it was overpriced. We found a Subway nearby and it was a great alternative. The movies were also ridiculously overpriced and as much as we tried, we couldn't find a video rental place anywhere. We finally ended up buying a few DVDs to watch late at night.  Overall, the service was good, the rooms were nice, and the location was great; we were in walking distance of a bunch of great restaurants and shops. I would love to come back on my next trip to Seattle.

I stayed here recently with my new husband for the first three nights of our honeymoon.  We had a wonderful time!  The first night they upgraded us to the executive suite, where the bathroom was the size of a regular room! They also gave us a bottle of champagne and some chocolates. We got a deal with our booking which included a $20 dining credit to Tulio's with each night, so we ate there one night and really enjoyed the dinner.  And every day from 5-6pm they have free wine!

The location of the hotel was also excellent.  We were able to take public transit from the airport to the hotel.  We walked all around the area during our stay: down to Pike Place Market, to various restaurants, and we were even able to walk to the pier for our whale watching tour.  

I would definitely recommend Hotel Vintage Park!

For the price this is a great hotel. I've traveled a lot and stayed in a wide range of hotels from hostels to the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. this is a great hotel, the staff is accommodating, the only hiccup I had was that I arrived 5 hrs before check in and my room wasn't quite ready as I had requested. (Understandable though) they were very apologetic and held my baggage so we could explore the city before returning.  The wine reception is great with plenty of local wines. Very clean and classy. Next time I visit Seattle I will most likely stay with them again.

The BF and I had a great stay here for my birthday weekend. I had stayed at a Kimpton hotel before for a business trip so I was looking forward to the stay here. Our schedule was pretty full so we missed out on the complimentary wine hour but no big deal. The room was pretty tiny but the bed was comfortable. My favorite feature was the huge mirror opposite the comfy king size bed. I suppose it's there to make the room feel bigger but let's just say we got some alternate uses out of it! Bow chicka wow wow!
The hotel is centrally located and just a short walk from both Pike Place market and Pioneer Square. It's also right across the street from the Main Library, which in my opinion is a must see.

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. I signed up for their "Kimpton InTouch" program before staying here and they upgraded us to my "preferred" King deluxe corner room free of charge!

They also put a note with two cookies in the room as a thank you...yummy! The hotel staff is wonderful and will do anything to help out. The front desk girls gave some great restaurant recommendations. The complimentary coffee downstairs is the best I've ever had (perhaps because we were in Seattle) and the wine hour adds a nice touch.

If you're looking for an affordable hotel but don't want to suffer in a dumpy hotel with no amenities, I highly recommend Vintage Park. Also, Pike Place Market is in close proximity for walking there, and there's a TON of shops and restaurants in the immediate area. I won't stay anywhere else in Seattle.

My wife and I stayed here one Valentine's Day weekend. It was as close to the perfect getaway as anything could get. I found the hotel through Hotwire, got an incredible deal but I had never stayed here before so wasn't sure what we'd be getting into. I've stayed in some fairly nasty hotels in my travels, which is perfectly fine when I'm by myself, but since I was bringing my wife along on this one I wanted to make sure everything was perfect. So I called them to ask a few questions. The conversation not only reassured my worries, but should give an indication why great customer service makes such a huge difference.

(girl on the phone) "Hotel Vintage Park, how may I help you?"
(me) "Hi, I just booked a room through Hotwire, I have a couple of general questions."
(girl on the phone) "Sure, what can I help with?"
(me), well, my wife and I are coming up from Portland, we're going to be staying there over Valentine's Day weekend, I want to make sure everything is going to be absolutely perfect."
(girl) "Awww, how ROMANTIC!! I wish my boyfriend would do that for me! I'll tell you what, just a sec --" (sound of keys tapping) "There, I've just upgraded you to one of our King suites. No extra charge."
(me) "Wow, thanks! That's great! I can't believe how AWESOME you guys are."

We rode the train up from Portland, which I highly recommend, by the way. From the train station, we looked at Google Maps and found that this hotel is only a few blocks. It was a nice sunny day so we decided to walk it rather than pay for a cab. Despite the brutal hill climb, we made it in one piece and checked in. On the way, we found ourselves in front of the Seattle Public Library. Both my wife and I love to read, so this was close to heaven for us. We decided to try and make it back to the library if we had time. Then we went and checked into the hotel.

These people do not disappoint. The bed was ultra-super-comfortable memory-foam, the room was spacious and huge, the leopard-print robes were a nice touch. We never did make it back to the library, though we did find a nice restaurant down the street that served a huge variety of many different kinds of fresh oysters. The hotel is in a great location, plenty of shops, bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. We walked all over the place and explored Seattle together.

The perfect weekend, in the perfect hotel, with the perfect woman at my side. And all that for a whole lot less money than you'd think.

I was a little skeptical of the name until I found out it's part of the Kimpton brand of hotels. We stayed three nights here and it was a very pleasurable experience.

The room was large and furnished well. The convenience of its location in downtown was excellent. And the staff was top notch, especially Gabriel the evening attendant.

Loved the exotic print whimsical print robes in the room and the turn-down service. If you don't have a wireless card for your notebook, the hotel offers free wifi if you sign up for a Kimpton loyalty program account.

Would stay here again when I'm in Seattle.

Another lovely Kimpton hotel, in a great location for sightseeing, Seattle.  The room at this one was small but, of course, well appointed and very clean.  I was delighted that they let us check in at 9am; however, that was slightly undermined when the garbage truck came to empty the dumpster under my third floor room at 6:30am the next day. Still, I'm hooked on Kimpton for the good decor, cushy beds, and always fabulous staff.  This one offers a complimentary wine tasting each evening, which was lovely though perhaps too many people in such a small lobby area; they also need to pipe in some nice ambient music.  Still a great experience and highly recommended accommodation!

Hotel Vintage Park wins instant points for providing free wi-fi.  This is probably nothing big in a city that offers free wireless connections like other cities offer exhaust fumes, but after a string of conference hotels where I had to pay exorbitant fees and buy ethernet cables, it's a real treat to just open up the laptop & connect.

Beyond this minor wonderfulness, the hotel is actually quite nice and well appointed.  Aveda products in the bathroom, an impressively stocked minibar, complimentary plush animal-print bathrobes and purchasable animal print undies (which is a little weird).  I wasn't keen on the feather pillows which collapsed like souffles with any sort of cranial impact, but otherwise, the bed was nice.

And let's not forget the nightly complimentary wine tastings in the lobby, featuring Washington winemakers and their wares.  Amazingly, we only made it to one tasting (it really was a beer-fueled trip), but I enjoyed the generous pours in the small front room of the hotel.  The tasters on a Thursday night were few, but apparently Friday night the room was just packed.

Locationwise, the hotel was a bit removed from restaurants and the convention center, but Seattle is so walkable, I didn't feel isolated or lacking for nearby coffee or beer options.  From the backside of the 11th floor we had a crappy view of the tops of shorter buildings and the exit ramp of the highway, but the front of the hotel overlooks the Seattle Public Library, so that's fun for librarians.

All in all, I recommend the hotel for wine fans, folks who don't mind walking a bit, and bookish types.

I was wavering between a 3 and and 4.  I thought the location was very good, walkable to pikes market, pioneer square and the ferries.  The rooms were also quite nice, we had a family of 5 so had two rooms, one qn/qn deluxe and one king deluxe, both rooms were clean, fairly spacious and quiet.  Upon checking in I learned they had changed one of my reservations to a King which was frustrating, having 3 people in a King would not have worked, I booked months in advance and had a few email confirmations that we had a qn/qn deluxe, they fixed it quickly but it was frustrating. It was relly nice that they let me youngest select a small stuffed animal on arrival.  

The restaurant at the hotel was a nice and easy choice in the morning, wait staff were super nice and gave us some good tips on what to see.

Only other gripe, and it is fairly minor, is we asked about a cab back to the airport (a 15 minute trip) and were told it would cost $85, it cost us $35 to get to the hotel.  I asked why it was so much and was told us they use a service that is very reliable, if I call a cab on my own it won't be reliable.  We told them we would take a chance and call our own but they still ordered the service for some reason and our cab came timely so we had two cars.  We felt badly for the service company and did not like that the front desk and valet was telling us to use their more expensive option, I guess this is not too uncommon, I believe they have some incentives in handling in this way.  We also rented a car for 2 days and parking at the hotel is quite high.

So overall 4+ on location, 4+ on maid service, 4+ on rooms, 2- on front desk/valet.  

I would likely return, I could ignore the issues given the good location and rooms.

I stayed at the Hotel Vintage Park for three nights in June.  I was here for a conference, and we wanted a hotel in a good neighborhood but not too far of a walk from the conference on the waterfront.  This was a fabulous choice!

CHEERS to free wine every day!  They offered a few different ones each day, including sangria, along with delicious bar snacks.

CHEERS also to the TURN-DOWN SERVICE!  So nice.  And who puts chocolates on pillows anymore?!

Points for the great location (close to great shopping and a mile from the waterfront), the sexy room decor and the kind staff.

Despite the free wine, there wasn't much of a fun atmosphere.  My colleague and I are both girls in our mid-twenties and we were the youngest people there by far.

I would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is cute and small and tucked away on a corner across from the library and a parking garage. Pike Place is within walking distance. The staff were great. We only stayed for one night but it didn't take that long for us to decide that the hotel really wasn't for us. I'd say the target audience for this hotel would be a more mature and sophisticated crowd. We were traveling with our two young children which I think tripled the decibel level in the lobby.

I stayed at this hotel for a week for work while I was in Seattle.  It was a really great experience!  The hotel is right downtown, close to the highway and public transporation.  The price range of this hotel is affordable (~$170 a night)

The staff is amazingly nice!  They upgraded my room to a nice spacious corner room with a view.  They have a wine hour from 5 to 6pm (from local wineries).  The amenities are great.  The room was clean and spacious.  

I would definitely stay in this hotel again.  I'm a Kimpton member now too...

We had a great experience at Vintage park.  The staff were all super friendly and helpful.  The room was quite a bit smaller than I'd hoped, but the bed was fabulously comfortable (as I've come to expect at Kimpton's), the Aveda products are great and I LOVE the animal print robes (for the person who didn't - that's a Kimpton standard thing).

Our room was in tip-top shape, quiet and I noticed no dank or smoky halls that others have commented on.  I like their TV set-up and the in-room workout channels.  We used the fitness facility which was also tiny, but it had all the basics, just not a lot of it.  

All in all, a great stay - I would likely opt for the Monaco on the next stay however, in hopes of getting a larger room and for a change of pace.

Would give this 4 stars save for a couple of issues. Stayed here on business for 4 nights back in October. Don't expect a spectacular view from any room. The hotel is short and on the edge of the financial district among the MUCH taller buildings. Most likely you'll have a view of another building, if you're lucky the little park and library.

THE GOOD
The room - fabulous and huge; with a dvd player and widescreen, flat tv; bathroom was good sized but not huge but the tub was nice; toiletries provided were limited and just so-so in quality (I think they were rosemary scent and I could have done without my hair smelling like that all day)

The bedding - AWESOME; great big pile of pillows on a king-sized bed with crisp sheets, a down comforter, and a feather bed mattress topper thingy (that I am probably going to buy from the Kimpton web site as it was immensely comfortable even with my back issues, and reasonably priced for purchase). This was a divine sleeping experience.

Hotel staff - very nice and helpful

Location - easy walk over to Pike Place market for a little sight seeing and souvenir hunting, and convenient to where we needed to be for work

Evening complimentary wine tasting in lobby - a nice touch

Fitness room - for the size of this boutique hotel surprisingly good

Minibar fridge in room isn't stocked to the gills and is not RFID sensitive - so you can use it to keep leftover take out or your own sodas cool (see below for why)

THE NOT SO GOOD
Wireless internet access - its available in the rooms (YAY); its also a pain in the a** to get connected (and I'm an IT person); the support line - actually has people who can help you (YAY)

My door - did not automatically close all the way and therefore very easy to leave with your room unlocked, EXTREMELY IRRITATING

They will charge you for air if they could - that "we have incidental items you might have forgotten", sure they do, but not at incidental prices - its worth the walk 2 blocks over to the massive pharmacy/convenience store to get what you might need; I stocked up on toothpaste, soda, and snacks for what it would have cost for a couple cans of coke out of the minibar

Hotel food (both at the italian restaurant and room service) - AWFUL IN BOTH PLACES (the red-wine vinaigrette on my salad was particularly horrid), not a single thing anyone in my group had was any good, save for the cheese plate I got at room service; as another reviewer said - scam a restaurant menu if you can as the prices are cheaper and more variety at least in the fare. I ended up skipping down the street a few blocks to Elephant & Castle (british pub theme chain) and getting take-out of a few of my favorite items.

I would stay here again as the hotel is nice and the staff cheerful, friendly and helpful. And I'll recommend it to others. But I'll be mindful of its shortcomings.

Hotel Vintage Park is cozy for sure. It reminded me of Downton Abbey with the fireplaces and squareness of the building. It felt like a big, warm hug. The rooms all have cute winery names. I'm not sure if the leopard bathrobes are to be taken seriously. We had fun prancing around and taking pictures in them. The bed was sumptuous and giant sized. Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating by holding our bags while we walked down to the market after we'd checked out. We had a short but great stay. We didn't try the room service menu but I have to say that the prices were much lower than any other room service menu I've ever seen before. I hear they do wine tasting in the evenings in the lobby too.

The Kimptom Group which runs this Hotel is patial to female guests, Which really turns out to be a good thing for everyone. The room was super clean even the drapes above the bed looked liked they been cleaned recently. At check in we missed happy-hour but the Front Desk agent told to go to the bar and they offered us a drink on the house. I booked the room on Price-line and was offered a room with a King bed on the 3rd floor was ok part of the hotel with a view of busy street. If I had been staying longer then one day I was requested to be moved to higher floor. The location is very good just south east of the main part of the downtown shopping district, Leave your car home if you can because parking in that area is brutal . Another nice touch is they have two working bicycles for guests to use at no charge. I checked one out on a Sunday morining for short downtown ride.

I stayed here one night before heading out on an Alaskan cruise.  I love Kimpton and I really can't think of one bad thing to say about this hotel.  I originally booked for the cheapest Queen-Queen room, but asked for an upgrade and got a King Premier room for free.  The front desk and room service staff were great and very friendly.  I suppose if I really think hard about it, the only negative I can come up with is the small gym, but if you walk around Downtown Seattle all day, I think working out in the gym would be the last thing on your mind.

I've also stayed at the Alexis a couple blocks away.  Comparing the two, I'd prefer the Alexis because it's just a teeny tiny bit more luxurious.  Nevertheless, if I ever come back to Seattle again, I wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Hotel Vintage Park.

Another one of my favorite hotels! The room was super clean and cozy. I love the beds and the entire room was more than comfortable.

The bathroom was a little small, but it was just me, so it was fine.

I generally like Kimpton properties, but I do NOT like the robes. I'm sorry, but they are a strange animal print, and they are faded and worn. Because they're worn, they're not very comfortable. I realize Kimpton wants something a little more original than the fluffy white robe, but they can do better than what they have.

All in all, I love Kimpton, and I especially LOVE Hotel Vintage Park!

Really nice hotel, but definitely not worthy of four stars.  We stayed here for three nights in April.  The staff was great, the room was lovely, comfortable and clean, and the location was convenient for several downtown attractions.  If you're just looking for a nice bed in an attractive hotel, but nothing else, this place is perfect for you.

We were hoping for a bit more than that, however.  The website says that certain rooms have a view.  I booked one of those certain rooms and got a view of a parking garage.  The front desk confirmed that in fact NONE of the rooms have a view.  The website needs to be updated because had I known this, I'd have picked a different hotel.  Seattle is gorgeous.  I want to see it from my hotel room.

The wine reception seemed nice, but we missed it three nights in a row because it's only offered for one hour and usually around a time when we had dinner reservations.  No big deal, we were busy, but we were kind of disappointed to miss out on the one and only perk at this hotel.

No coffee maker in the room...in Seattle.  That boggled my mind.  Sure there's a cafe on every corner and room service, but...I don't know if I've ever been to a hotel that didn't have coffee and tea available in the room.

Room service menu is sad.  Nothing light or simple enough that would have been decent for a mid-day snack, tea, etc., which aside from drinks, is the only thing I usually order from room service.

Finally, and this might have been specific to our room, but our shower had no warm water.  We could scorch or we could freeze, but when you turn the knob to around to where the water would be warm, it shuts off.  Turn it further and you are graced with scalding hot water.  Turn it back in the other direction (past the warm part where it shuts off) and you've got ice cubes.  Very bizarre.

Overall, a nice stay, but I've stayed at other similarly priced hotels around Seattle and definitely prefer those over this one.

Hotel's location is great. I was a first timer in Seattle on my own and found that all the places I intended on visiting were within a  reasonable (mostly walking) distance. Service was great, everyone at the front desk was friendly. $7 for a bottled water is excessive, but I was thirsty and I guess it's comparable to what any hotel would charge for eating/drinking from their mini bar. I left my cell phone charger in the room and asked they mail it to me since I figured it would be cheaper than obtaining a new one. They charged my credit card $10.95 for this and I have yet to receive it. This was one week ago. Will wait a couple more days before I call and have a fit. Overall, from a guest experience standpoint I am satisfied. The room was comfortable, quiet and again location was good. I wish the bathtub was bigger AND that it didn't make strange noises when I let the water I was bathing with go...weird. Also, I missed their hosted wine evening every single time. They should consider extending it to a couple hours. I would stay here again and consider a Kimpton Hotel when I travel elsewhere.

Thanks to Snowpocalypse 2010, we found ourselves at the Hotel Vintage park. I'm a big fan of Kimpton Hotels and the Vintage Park definitely helps boost their reputation. They really excel in personalized service and every member of the staff goes out of their way to be good to you. This is a place where you can stay with a great deal of comfort and confidence.

Your accommodations are very satisfying. The rooms are spacious enough. The real focus is on the bed, which is superior by all standards. The television was modern and had plenty of viewing options. The bathroom is well appointed and you always have the option of going green - something I really appreciate. They also have a fitness room which admittedly is not huge but, was definitely clean and functional.

The extras that they offer make you feel like a kid. There's coffee service in the morning, hot cocoa from 2 - 4 pm and between 5 and 6, you can enjoy a glass of local wine. These are nice touches that make Kimptons hard to resist for me.

The staff was wonderful. We needed something and it was at our door within 5 minutes. We needed a car, someone got it not only in short order but with warmth. The attendants at the front desk knew our names. These are things that really make a difference and reasons I recommend a hotel like this.

Kimpton properties have yet to let me down.  Hotel Vintage Park was a treat--huge rooms, lavish and original décor, animal print robes (although out of place & over-washed looking), central location, complimentary evening wine receptions (which we missed both nights and instead were given vouchers for drinks at the bar!), complimentary tea/coffee/hot chocolate every morning, complimentary wifi if you're a Kimpton InTouch member, and for some reason we got two $10 vouchers for their very unique/fun mini-bar.  

Chocolates and a bottle of bubbly were our welcome amenities, and to our surprise the sparkling wine was not some grossly sweet $8/bottle creation.  It was dry, probably a 0, and finishing the bottle was not a chore for us!  Extraordinarily friendly bellboys and front desk staff will help you out with anything you need.  They all seem to love their jobs and the hotel, which makes me like it even more.  

I'd go back in a heartbeat.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here for our 1 year anniversary and true to Kimpton form, it was a wonderful weekend, thanks to the staff at the Hotel Vintage Park. Louis gave us a warm welcome upon check in and (I didn't realize this until later when my boyfriend told me) but Louis was instrumental in helping my boyfriend plan some of the activities of the weekend.

Our room had a beautiful view and the bed was super comfy. The location is ideal because it is pretty close to all of the major attractions and it is right off of the freeway so it is easy to find.

While we were there, the Monaco and the Vintage Park hosted a wine tasting to support  the Red Ribbon Campaign . The event was wonderful. There were many wines to taste and they had a table with food samplers on it that were also very good.

I would definitely recommend the Hotel Vintage Park if you are staying in Seattle.

Stayed here 5 nights for a business trip. It's the perfect ambiance to balance the bustle of the convention center and a nice five block walk away - just enough to feel separated without being removed.

Service is impeccable. The only thing that got me was that I was placed on a second floor, subterranean room for the first night. Being a woman travelling alone, the street and seeing people walking by all night does not help me sleep easy. They moved me to eighth floor next day with a view of the library, so I soon forgot this minor inconvenience.

Ate at the cozy restaurant bar downstairs one night; enjoyed food and mood. The bartender was a little distracted and spent more time telling surf stories to the guys next to me, but he may have just thought that I wanted to be left alone. No harm, no foul... just not the stellar service I received everywhere else on the property.

Love Kimpton hotels and all the perks - this is a great place to stay!

Had a very nice experience at the Vintage Park in Seattle. Wine hour was fun (but a little cramped just cause of the lobby size). Enjoyed the very comfortable beds and accommodations and the location is excellent if you like shopping, theatre, and fresh market! Only problem I had was the bell service/check in was a little wild. Struggled through it as I brought my dogs. Felt like I was getting rushed which was not good considering how hard it is to get dogs in and out of cars, hotels, and doing restroom trips. Other then that it was wonderful.

I'm a little late to this party, but here goes....my friends and I had the best time in Seattle this past August because of this little gem's amazing staff.  We were in town celebrating a friend's birthday. I chose this place b/c of the Kimpton reputation and I got an amazing deal on Hotwire. Brian at the front desk was the best front desk agent with whom I've ever had the pleasure to interact.  Sincerely, an awesome, hilarious, solicitous, professional, kind and awesome guy.  He made our stay! Brian wasn't the only amazing front desk agent, all of the staff we came into contact with were friendly, helpful and genuine.

The hotel itself is nice.  The fitness center shouldn't be mentioned, not having anything nice to say, and all that.  The room was spacious and the happy hour fun!  The location is great, it's not right in the middle of the tourist attractions, but the walk back from the various areas never felt sketch.

Stayed there because the W wasn't cooperating.  Rooms are small, soaps and conditioners are "MOUNTED" to the wall.  Not hip really - more like Vermont Bed and Breakfast Meets Leona Helmsley's decorator from 1952.

On the upside, they take doggies and that's always a plus.

I would recommend staying here and talk to Brian for all your Seattle needs! Rad sauce!

For a 4-star hotel, we expected more. We had a great stay, but we were pretty underwhelmed. Everyone was extremely kind and helpful, but there were some glaring flaws that we couldn't get over. Here's how it broke down:

PROS
- Hotel Vintage Park is located perfectly - close to all the stuff that we wanted to check out during our mini-vacation in Seattle. The room was clean and well appointed (I know that phrase is pretty hackneyed, but I've always wanted to say that in a Yelp review - take a photo!), which was nice.

- I liked the old-school feel of the place. It's the total opposte of a modern hotel, in that there's a homey feel to the lobby and the rooms.

CONS
- The bathtub wouldn't plug, even though they offered bath salts in the room (which I wanted to try out). I stressed myself out trying to figure out how to do it, which clashed with the "pamper yourself" tone epitomized by the animal-print robes made available to guests.

- The bedding wasn't very comfortable. This was really disappointing, since collapsing into bed after walking up and down all those hills was something I had looked forward to all day. It wasn't a brick or anything, it just wasn't very comfy.

- The parking charges were outrageous. This was a huge bummer.

I had a few-days stay here in March.  You can read in other reviews about the location, the details, the this-and-that.  

My gist is simply that the staff here really gives a damn, and will work to make your stay pleasant.  It's a rare thing, and this will be my place in Seattle when I can help it.

A fine hotel if you don't mind the dusty rooms or the extremely loud heating system.

Thank God for the other reviews on here, which warned me about the rooms. They tried to give me a second floor room that felt like an extension of the kitchen and ended up being street level. Not cool!

Luckily, we switched rooms, but we could only get a Queen size bed. Beds weren't bad at all, but still the same "musty" feeling in the air.

Staff was friendly. Parking outrageous, but that's what you get in this town.

Flower market on Sunday was amazing, and most of the flowers lasted for the next week. Score a bouquet for $5-$10.

We didn't know but parking is free everywhere on Sunday! What a score. Worth the trip just for that. Seattle hasn't learned the evil ways of the Vancouver parking system just yet.

If you want something different, drive back through Ballard and go to the Bastille cafe--but be prepared to wait in line for awhile, or sit with strangers.

I would stay here again, but only if I was able to receive the $120 Priceline deal that I scored this time.

Staff over the top. Room immaculate, virtually every thing I needed and when I came up with something they didn't have the desk man went out and got it. Doorman went over two blocks away to try and find us a cab on a busy evening. Pricey but worth it except they need to update rooms... Ours was frayed nd showing its age otherwise a five star.

We are currently staying here for a few nights. The hotel is lovely and the staff are super friendly.

But I have to say, I'm really freaking jealous of everyone who got free room upgrades, welcome amenities, etc. We got none of that and I'm an InTouch member. We didn't even get the free $10 for the minibar, which is promised on the InTouch website.

I'm not taking away stars on my rating for that, I'm just saying I'm jealous. We got what we paid for and it IS really a wonderful hotel.

The beds are kind of hard, though. And the person who said they had to move the desk chair to open the bathroom for more than halfway was not kidding.

This makes a pretty good home base for a traveler to downtown Seattle. Most things are in pretty easy walking distance, though be aware (as I was not) that Seattle is very HILLY walking from west to east. The Vintage Park is on 5th Avenue, which is pretty much the eastern edge of downtown, so most places you go are downhill on the way there and uphill on the way back. North-South streets are mostly flat or have more gentle slopes.

Rooms here are distinctive with their jewel-tone color scheme. Spring for the few extra bucks and go for the King Premier rooms over the standard Kings. For not much more a night, you get about 100 extra square feet of space plus a sofa. The bed was pretty comfortable and the bathroom was fairly large, if a little bland. The tub was kind of shallow for soaking. There was plenty of closet space, though drawer space was limited. There are all kinds of neat doo-dads in the closet, including the tiger-print robe, an umbrella, and thick socks for keeping your feet warm.

The lobby is smallish, but does host a complimentary wine reception each evening at 5, featuring a local winemaker and some hors d'oeuvres. This is a nice touch, as is the pet goldfish they will provide for your stay upon request. These are signature touches of the Kimpton chain which give it a nice personal flair.

Tulio Ristorante is attached to the lobby and serves fine Italian cuisine, heavy on the seafood. It's a smallish room serving all three meals, and appears to be very popular as it was packed to bursting on a Wednesday night. Definitely make reservations here.

There are ice machines only on the 4th, 7th, and 10th floors of the hotel, which is a little inconvenient. There's no pool and I didn't get a chance to check out the fitness room--I got all the workout I needed from the hilly streets. Staff all appear to be eager to please and very capable. It can be a hassle to get a cab, so plan on 5-10 extra minutes for that.

In the immediate area, the bar/restaurant at sister Kimpton property the Monaco is fun. And Shuckers just down the street at the Fairmont Olympic has just about the best fish and chips I've ever had.

You can walk to Pike Place Market from the hotel, though it's a bit of a hike. If you do, the great lounge at the Four Seasons right outside the market is a fine place to fortify yourself for that trip back uphill. You can easily walk the six blocks to the monorail from the hotel and hop on that to get to the Space Needle.

The rooms were small but not too bad. The double bed fit well into the bedroom and a queen or king would obviously be too big.

The valet staff were great. Very helpful and really fast to get my car.

The housekeeping staff were fine. Just wish they were a little more calm before trying to enter the room. My wife and I were still asleep (it was about 9:30 or so) and the housekeeper knocked on the relatively thin door pretty hard and announced herself (she didn't open the door).  Buy she definitely startled both of us with her knocks and loud voice.

The front desk staff are the real reason for the rating. We had a question about the parking charge for our hybrid vehicle. The person at the desk went through an entire explanation about how she had to justify the hybrid discount (the discount was mentioned by one of their valets). She asked me to describe the valet or give her some way to justify the discount. More than once I said, "go right outside the door (10 feet to her right) and look for yourself". She never did and instead had to get it approved by a manger. To her credit she said that we didn't have to wait and that she'd just email me the folio. After two phone calls I finally got the folio emailed to me. Not having to call at all would have been nice.

Where do I begin? I've wanted to stay at HVP for many years and this was the first time it all worked out. For my trip to Seattle I wanted something small, personal, and really comfortable, and within walking distance of everything downtown. The price for my King Premier Corner Room was $116 per night!!!! Unheard of, but I am a little bargain hunter, so yay for me. Being a Kimpton member I was able to get a higher floor along with all of the great amenities (free wifi, paper of my choice, turn down service, etc.) and I was really excited about my stay.

Check-in was a breeze and I was in my room and ready to begin relaxing. My room was so nicely appointed, spacious and comfortable, and it had no less than six windows! I was squealing like a schoolgirl when I first walked in. Waiting for me was the promised fish in a fishbowl and I promptly named him Pisano (after seeing that the hotel's chef is named Walter Pisano) as it seemed appropriate. I unpacked my fifty suitcases (okay, 48), took a bath and then climbed in to my very comfy bed. I didn't hear one peep from my neighbors and the surrounding area is very quiet at night.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I have to say that the service at HVP was extraordinary and I was treated with utter respect and the highest level of professionalism, whether it was someone at the front desk, the restaurant / room service staff, or housekeeping; it was incredible. Honestly, I hated to leave and extended my stay. The wine tasting was fantastic and I chatted with some very nice guests. The food was good, though the room service could be improved by ensuring that the food's temperature doesn't drop so much by the time it gets to the guest's room (but the folks taking my order and delivering were incredibly helpful and very customer oriented).  Some of the dishes were hit or miss, but overall, the food was good.

I agree that the leopard-print robes are faded and worn, and not terribly comfortable. Not a big deal, though.

I loved my stay and cannot wait to go back. It was so nice that I am in the process of writing a nice letter to Kimpton's CEO to let him know that this particular Kimpton Hotel is head and shoulders above almost every hotel I've ever stayed at.

Have to love this place. It is the definition of a boutique hotel. Great location just 6 blocks pike place and 4 blocks from the main shopping corridor in downtown. The staff is over the top friendly and very service oriented. I also love the bathrooms. Open with all the amenities. And they name all of the rooms after wine vineyards (the name of the vineyard is marked clearly over the doors). One thing that really jumps out at you is that they must have really thick walls. From inside your room you can't hear people walking down the hallway or people in the next room at all. It very very quiet.

Fabulous hotel!

Stayed here three nights with my boyfriend and niece. We got a King Premiere room that had a king bed and a queen fold out. The fold out was super comfy and I was glad, I didn't want my niece to have to sleep on an uncomfortable bed for three nights.

The hotel was in a great location, right in the middle of downtown, within walking distance to everything we wanted to do. The staff was totally nice and accommodating to all of our needs.

The room was beautiful and the bathroom was big enough for all three of us.

There is a free wine reception every night where you can get your drink on with wines from local wineries. Also free coffee in the morning and free iced tea & lemonade in the afternoons.

This hotel is totally dog friendly and we saw lots of doggies every day in the lobby.

I would definitely stay here again, and I will definitely look into other Kimpton hotels when I travel in the future!

Central location, accommodations, and affordable room and board- three aspects a tourist is looking for in a hotel.
Hotel Vintage Park is located in the heart of downtown Seattle, nestled right by the buzzing Financial district with popular destinations such as Pike Place Market and Pioneer Square are within mile or two-aka, walking distance!
Had a long day and you just want to relax with your friends with a glass of wine and recall the fun and cool sights you just saw that day? Well in the lobby at Hotel Vintage Park there wine tasting event served with light snacks daily at 5pm! The featured wines range from the hotel's private/personal stock and sometimes even a special non-wine is featured. I personally enjoyed the hot apple cider and bourbon, which really hit the spot on a cold January day in Seattle. The staff is also very nice a friendly with doormen posted at every hour of the day to make sure you're getting back "home" alright.
For 4 days and three friends we only had to shell out $100 dollars each, what a steal! Each room comes with two full sized beds and spacious lounge area- a great place to unwind with your complimentary bottle of wine when you check in with Yelp!
Hotel Vintage Park- another diamond in the rough!

I got a pretty good deal from Priceline.com .  I have always been a big fan of the W Hotels which are considered "boutique" hotel.  

Hotel Vintage Park isn't much to look at from the outside, it has a small inside lobby, BUT surprisingly very nice hotel rooms!  It blew me away.  The decor is tastefully done.  The toilettries provided were awesome and you can call the front desk if you need to borrow a flat iron (without charge).  The bed is right up there in W Hotel/ Westin/ Sheraton hotel's alley.  They have free coffee/tea in the morning down in the lobby as well as wine tasting in the afternoon.  Awesome experience and will definitely keep it in my favorite Seattle hotel list.

This was our first stay at a Kimpton property. Came across this hotel through Priceline.  We had a great 3 night stay. The property is old and quaint but our room was spacious enough for us to relax in before we'd set out for dinner. The wine tasting in the evenings was a great perk to socialize if you chose too and to drink free wine :)

We did enjoy a goldfish for our stay and I loved having the yoga mat to stretch out my tight calves, hips and back from all the hill walking.  Signing up to be a free intouch loyalty member gave us wifi access which is unheard of these days.

I brought my ear plugs since I'm such a light sleeper but we didn't hear anything from other guests!

I'm glad we've been introduced to the Kimpton brand!

Love, love, loved Hotel Vintage Park!

We stayed here on our first trip to Seattle and absolutely couldn't have picked a better spot. All the employees were amazing, from the Valet, to the front desk attendant right down to the ladies working the bar. What a great atmosphere to relax in, oh and the free glass of wine didn't hurt either! We stayed on the second floor in a lovely room for two, the bed was huge and amazing, and we loved the vineyard inspired decor. Especially liked the cucumber water in the lobby, that attention to detail was obvious throughout the venue and our stay.

Can't wait to come back!!

We booked a room for a week at the Vintage Park prior to our Alaskan Cruise.
The hotel location was very good, the Seattle Library is right across the street, and walking to the Pike Place Market is all downhill.
I feel silly saying anything bad about this place, because people here seem to love it, I guess we are just not boutique hotel people.
The room was nice, but I thought it was a little small, and the girlfriend kept wishing there was some place to put our clothes (there was a closet, however there weren't many hangers, other than that, there were no dressers, or anywhere else to put clothes away.
I was a bit perturbed too, that they mention that there is free coffee in the lobby, but there were no cups when I went to get some on Memorial Day (at first I thought they must just be under staffed because of the holiday, but there were people opening the door, they should have been restocking cups)
After the holiday, there were always cups available, but I went out twice on that Monday, and the cups weren't restocked.
The staff was friendly, but when we called down to ask how much making a local call was, the front desk did not know, they referred us to some information card (that wasn't in our room)
In case you are wondering, a call cost $3.00
Another issue was the business center, my girlfriend used it a few times to book tours and what not, when she tried printing her confirmation, (there was an extra fee for that too) someone had stolen a part from the printer, so it wouldn't work.
She called down to the front desk for assistance, and instead of printing her documents and bringing them to her, they asked her to come get the documents at the front desk.
As I said, it was no big issue, just a bunch of small ones (the fees tacked on to the room service menu, no vending machines in the hotel, and several of the food products offered in the room were not listed on the price card attached).
The bed was nice, and the bathroom was large, however getting shampoo from the pump bottle provided was a bit of a challenge (no personal sized bottles, only a large pump bottle)
Every night there was a wine get together in the lobby, but we were never nearby when it was going on, the lobby was nice though, lots of seats.
I used the free wifi a few times too, I even checked in on Yelp and Foursquare (one of them entitled me to a free bottle of wine, but since we were headed out on a cruise, we didn't want to carry it.
In all, like I said, I suppose we are not boutique people.

I was fortunate enough to stay here on business this week. Boy was I surprised when a Kimpton popped up as an approved hotel!  Pleasantly surprised of course because I love Kimptons!

It's a typical Kimpton- cute, super friendly and fun. While my room didn't have a nice view, it was large, clean and comfortable. And, the bathroom was pretty spacious.

Just a few blocks from the shopping, the location was wonderful. I'd definitely stay here again - business or pleasure.

Service= 2983 stars. Accommodations= 4 stars.

The staff is amazing, really. We were looking for early check-in, and instead of just shoving us in an open room, they let us know that if we just waited a little while, they would have a better room available in a few hours and would gladly watch our luggage while we were super tourists. Done and done.

The room itself was good. I don't think it helped that we came from Bellevue Hotel, with such over-the-top amenities. The room was definitely small and seemed outdated, and had very few extraneous amenities, but I think this part was on purpose. The bed was very comfortable, though, and we had no problem falling asleep right away.

The location was perfect. We walked or took the bus everywhere and had no issues getting anywhere.

Wine hour was wonderful! It was extremely casual and was a great way to just relax and spend a while getting to know other guests. The winemakers were actually present during the hour we went, so we got to chat with them and get to know their whole story.

The final piece, again, was the staff's helpfulness. We prepaid through Priceline for a stay from Sunday-Wednesday, but unfortunately had to leave on Monday morning due to a family emergency. I let the front desk know our situation and wouldn't be staying at the hotel Monday night and might not be back. They were extremely understanding and said they would notate my account.

SO, imagine my surprise when I call Tuesday to let them know I'll be needing to check out due to a family emergency, and, without even mentioning my NAME, just by saying that I had let the hotel know I might not be back, Brian says, "oh yes, Mr. S, we had this notated on your room".....WOW. Talk about above-and-beyond service. I really was floored.

I let Brian know that we wouldn't be using our last night due to the family emergency and needed to check out. He was extremely empathetic and kind and made the situation so easy.

Lastly, I called Priceline to see if there's any way I could get Monday and Tuesday night refunded since we did not stay at the hotel, even though they have a no refund policy. They actually called and spoke to Brian and they agreed to refund Tuesday night since I had just checked out. So technically we paid for a night that we didn't use, but I'm really just glad we got SOME money back, and was grateful to the hotel for being so flexible.

Anyway, a novel-sized review, but a big thanks to the staff for their amazing service and I highly recommend this hotel for any Seattle trip!

Ever since my bro had his wedding at a Kimpton and I realized you could rent a fish for every night of your stay (!!!), I have been a huge fan and have stayed whenever I could.

This hotel was awesome! It's just a block away from the Kimpton Monaco--and I did have an awesome breakfast there (I paid; in the restaurant)--but it was down-to-earth, elegant, and the perfect slice of Seattle. I love the mini bar at Kimpton. I love that they have a kick-ass Keurig machine. And I love that they seem to know exactly what guests crave: Intense showers, incredibly soft/luxurious sheets/pillowcases/ and amenities like the mini bar/wine hour that make you feel welcome.

Something especially cool? If you miss wine hour (which is 5-6, easy to miss if you are sight-seeing or coming in late), Kimpton gives you a card for a complimentary glass of vino at the resto in the hotel-- so nice! Another nice thing? While you may bristle at paying wireless fees (yah, they "technically" charge) just suck it up, sign up, and pay no $$ for wireless plus get a mini bar coupon. Aw yeah!

Other than that, Kimpton was friendly, down-to-earth, knowledgeable about the city, helped me with a couple taxi situations (and a "can you please unzip this dress halfway?" situation) with aplomb, and I will certainly stay there the next time I come out to the West Coast!

Stayed here on a recent business trip.   It kind of reminded me of a Holiday Inn Express -  but with wine in the lobby.   My room was comfortable and surprisingly, it was the most quiet hotel room I have ever stayed in.  I was on the top floor.  Maybe the rooms next to me were not booked.  I think I only heard a person in the hallway once or twice the entire week I was there.  Although I was not travelling with a dog, they were dog friendly and I like seeing warm fuzzy pooches on parade.  It is not a pricey hotel, so for the cost, it was perfectly fine.

I had to knock a star off though because of the ridiculous, over-the-top snacks and drinks in the room.  The one small table in my room was COMPLETELY taken up by $10 bags of fun size potato chips and popcorn. The table was apparently there only to hold the snacks.  There was no room for anything else. The refrigerator was stocked from top to bottom with various beers and other booze -- so stocked in fact, there was no room to put anything of my own (such as dinner leftovers) without taking something out.   It was little over the top.   I thought for a minute I was renting a room at the world's most expensive 7-Eleven.

But the peak of  hilarity was the "intimacy pack" that was smack dab in the middle of the stacks of pricey potato chips.  I did not expect to find condoms, lube & dental dams hiding behind the cheese corn.  So low-rent, people!  I realize this probably comes in handy for the traveler who unexpectedly finds himself (or herself) getting sexy with someone, but it seemed kind of trashy to me.  Perhaps if they had put it in the bathroom I would have found it less unappealing.

Two words; character and charm.  If I did not know that this hotel was a Kimpton property I would have assumed it was a family owned hotel with years of history.  It has that feel.

The staff were warm, friendly and professional.  The room was very comfortable and fully stocked including fun, leopard print bathrobes.

And best of all was the complementary wine reception at 5 each afternoon! Featuring Washington wines we had a number of good  conversations with interesting guests from all over.

Will definitely stay again.

I would give this hotel three stars if that is an option. I reserved this hotel through Priceline's name your price option, so I got a very good deal. Had I paid the average price I would have been pretty disappointed.
There was nothing that stood out as exceptional about this hotel. The room was a little bigger than average. There were many small cosmetic flaws in our room. The paint in the trim was poorly done and chipped in spots. The tub was just your average tub and there were no robes in the room. The television was really small for the distance from the bed. The mattress was very firm and the linen, especially blanket, felt very stiff to me. I thought it was really weird that the shampoo and conditioner were pump style and mounted in the shower. So you're sharing the same toiletries as all the strangers before you. No thanks. There was a weird stale cigarette smoke smell in the hallways. It was a nonsmoking floor but maybe it's leftover from the 80's. The room was too warm all the time. It was November when I stayed there and I turned the thermostat down to 63 degrees and it was still too warm to sleep. I'm not a total snob about these things.
The two things I really liked:
We missed wine hour in the lounge and the desk gave us vouchers for two free glasses at the adjacent italian restaurant/bar (Tula's). We loved this place. The bartender was very informative and pleasant to have conversation with. It is so rare to have such great service and selection and we really enjoyed this.
In the morning the lobby had Cafe Vita coffee, which I love.
These are both small perks. I'd rather stay somewhere else and buy a glass of wine at Tula's and coffee and Vita.
There was nothing so incredibly wrong with this hotel, I've just been to way better for a much cheaper average price. I have no idea what makes this a 4 star hotel. It offers no extra amenities or comfort. We woke up at 7am and left immediately to go home and shower.

This hotel is not up to the usual Kimpton standards. The location and service are good, but the room was TINY and the bathroom was barely bigger than a powder room...you practically have to stand in the tub to shut the door and the door must shut to use the sink. There is no way 2 people can get ready at the same time. We asked if it was possible to be moved to another room and were told that all of the bathrooms are small. The room was clean, but this hotel needs to be updated and it should be noted on their website that the bathrooms are small and provide an accurate photo. I love Kimptons, but I would not stay at this hotel again.

I was attending a work conference and had the great pleasure of staying at the Hotel Vintage for 5 days. The hotel is perfectly located for exploring the city. The room was large and very comfortable, but the best part was the incredible staff. I was traveling by myself and had never been to Seattle. Everyone was extremely helpful, answering transit questions and offering excellent restaurant recommendations. Steve, Amelia, and Desiree were exceptional and made me feel welcome and at home immediately. I will definitely be returning to the Hotel Vintage the next time I'm in Seattle.

Just back from a long weekend and have to say this property was outstanding.

This was a fun, not working, weekend and it's a great downtown location a short walk to Pike Place Market, Aquarium, SAM, main shopping area & Pioneer Square.

Staff were wonderful - nothing was too much trouble.  Efficient check in/out, couple of minor housekeeping requests dealt with right away (we always forget something...in this case free razors & shaving foam gladly provided).  

Kimpton always does a great job maintaining their properties and this is no exception.  Everything spotless and the room was perfect.

The in-house restaurant/bar is Tulio an upscale Italian venue.  Sat at the bar on the first night & had an appetizer & a few drinks.  Bartender was great - she gave me good pointers on the wines, menu, and things to see in Seattle  Good value drinks and food.

Subsequently had Sunday Brunch in the main dining room.  Again, great service and the food was top-tier.  I asked the hostess a passing question about the Seattle Aquarium and she offered to have the concierge arrange tickets.  It turns out the Aquarium is pretty much a walk-up affair only but it was a very nice gesture!

Highly recommended!

I really like Kimpton hotels and they are typically our first choice of places to stay when we travel. We had tickets for the UFC on FOX 5 event at KeyArena this weekend and found Hotel Vintage Park on Kimpton's website.

The location of the hotel was perfect for the event. A short walk took us to the monorail that dropped us off right at the arena.

The accommodations were exactly what we've come to expect from Kimpton. Our room was large and immaculately clean. The bed was a little too firm for my liking, but that's always hit and miss wherever you stay.

Friendly staff and the hotel is within walking distance of all the major downtown sights. Reasonably priced and they had a free wine tasting in the lobby--which typically wouldn't interest me, but they had whiskey, too.

The old building has a lot of character and it's a lot nicer staying at Hotel Vintage Park than some sterile, uninteresting place. I recommend.

This is a lovely little gem! The staff was amazing, and they welcomed me and my cat Bella like we were old friends. I called ahead and asked for a litter box, and when I arrived there was a litter box and litter waiting. The hotel is located in the perfect spot and I spent two days walking around Seattle.

The hotel has a great vibe, and the restaurant downstairs was delicious. I sat at the bar one night with a sprained ankle, and the bartender chatted with me, kept me company, and served me delicious food. The burrata salad was worth driving to Seattle for. Yum!

As with any Kimpton, my stay far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend staying here or at any of the Kimpton properties.

I love Vintage Park. We first stayed here on our Wedding night and have made it our "tradition" to stay there every year on our Anniversary. The staff is extremely polite and professional and the room are always very clean and comfortable. One thing I especially appreciate about Vintage Park is that on each of our Anniversay stays, after we've checked in, the staff would give up complimentary wine or champagne and chocolates with a nice note congratulate us on our Anniversary. Granted, they're not the most expensive bottles of wine or champagne, but it's the thought and gesture that really show's their appreciation towards their guests.

I would highly reccomment Vintage Park to anyone looking for a wonderful stay in the middle of downtown Seattle. The location is also just as great as their service and accommodations!

My daughter booked our room at the last minute for one night to do some sightseeing in Seattle and we were not disappointed.
The room was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful.
A great downtown experience!

Nice Hotel. Customer service is great and the evening wine even better. It's located in downtown, but still a few blocks from the main action.

If you like vintage, do come here. If you are not into this style, then it may come out as old. Either or if you can get a good price as we did ... go for it! It's a comfortable, clean space. ONly thing I do not like about Seattle hotels is the expensive $40 per Overnight Charge for your vehicle. Oh well, I guess thats just Seattle.

I was completely unfamiliar with this hotel before staying there, but greatly enjoyed my experience. Hotel staff was always friendly, rushing to open doors and expressing friendliness and hospitality at every encounter. The lobby was a bit on the small side, but the room my party and I had was very large and comfortable.

My only complaint about the room would be that the workstation was sandwiched in between a niche and the bed, making ingress and egress difficult. However, there was so much space in the rest of the room that setting up a laptop elsewhere was very easy.

On Tuesdays, I believe, the hotel offers a free wine tasting and live music. Neither were very much to my taste, but they were nice touches.

We looked for a fairly last minute hotel deal on Hotels.com , and this one popped up at a reasonable price.  It looked like it was nicely located from all the sites, and was still close to the train station...  so why not.

It's listed as a 4 diamond boutique hotel...  not sure I'd give it that many stars... or the boutique status... but it was a nice friendly place.   The wife wasn't very impressed at all, but really... it was a little dated looking, but nothing was 'wrong' with it...

I'd stay again... just maybe wouldn't let her know we were booked in there, and let her find out in the end.  ;)

Vintage Park is a quaint, cozy hotel in a great location in Seattle.  The staff were friendly enough; not outstanding.

The three-star rating comes from two points:
(1) Their lobby is incredibly small.  Personally, I like enough space to stretch out and relax.  Especially considering Kimpton Hotels have an evening wine reception (love that!) from 5-6... it was quite crammed in there.
(2) Rooms could use an update!  They quaintness is adorable and cozy, but my personal preference leans towards modern.

Always a huge fan of Kimpton Hotels, though, and intend to explore their other Seattle properties.

We absolutely LOVED this place! Absolutely adorable little boutique hotel and awesome staff. We have already looked up the other hotels affiliated with Kimpton and plan on seeking them out during our travels to stay again. For starters, the hotel is very cute and definitely not what you would see in a typical chain hotel; the lobby is comfortable and smallish, with a fireplace and couches. In the mornings they have a coffee bar set up (for free) and in the evenings they do a wine tasting/pouring (for free) that served wine local to Seattle, which we thought was really charming.

The staff was awesome, the free bottle of wine was awesome, and perhaps most importantly, the location was awesome! We could walk everywhere- from the space needle to Pikes Place Market, it is totally accessable. We also ordered room service once or twice after long days of touring Seattle and the service was prompt and the food was tasty. We cannot say enough good things about this place and are hoping the rest of Kimpton hotels impresses us the way Hotel Vintage Park did!

We stayed here for our 9 year anniversary. The hotel staff were very nice & friendly. Shortly after checking in, the hotel sent us champagne & chocolate. It was such a kind gesture. The room was clean & cute. Black out curtains worked great and the bed was comfy. There was a huge mirror covering the whole side of the wall next to the bed. The only downside to the room was that it was a down comforter and the pillows were as well. My husband is unfortunately allergic to it. There were also a couple adorable animal print bathrobes in the closet. My only gripe would be the valet. They didn't know how to drive my husbands car and you can hear them revving his engine when they were bringing the car to us.  The valet even admitted to us that he didn't know how to turn off the engine so he had to kill the engine several times to shut the car off which was the most horrifying thing to hear. You know men and their cars.

A quaint hotel on the corner of 5th Avenue and Spring. Part of the Kimpton chain, had a lovely stay here. The lobby is quite small, and I missed the wine hour everyday. :( The doormen and staff are all very friendly and great. There are not too many rooms, so never had a problem with the hotel only having 2 elevators. Although our room was located right off the elevator and we faced the street, it never got noisy when we were sleeping. We had the 2 queen deluxe and it was very spacious! Loved the extra space with 2 chairs, desk, and the queen sofabed. The bathroom was also tucked into the side which was nice.

Love their products, Gilchrist and Soames, smells heavenly, but expect to press that pump quite a few times for a decent amount of lotion or shampoo! Only bummer is their sink faucet handles are a bit harder to use, and the sounds that come out of it reminds me of Darth Vader. Towels are plush here, so a definite bonus! There's also a full sized mirror on the outside of the bathroom door which is perfect to check your outfit before you leave.

They have free wi-fi which is a plus, but my connection was always in and out.

A wonderful stay for a great price, friends and I enjoyed our stay here.

This is based on a call I placed. I was placing a reservation for 3 days at $249 a night.

We had to add 2 extra nights and they were still weekdays. They said the hotel room for those extra nights are at a higher price of $269.

What really pissed me off is that they said they had to bump up the cost of the room for the 3 days I already had booked. I was like, why? THey said something that this is based on the average. Huh? I still don't understand it.

So now, ALL nights are $269! SMH. . .

Before getting into this review let me start off by saying, DO NOT USE VALET!!! They are young kids who are more concerned with playing rather than working. I drive a blacked out, tuned Mazdaspeed 3 with a turbo timer installed. It keeps the engine running for 30 seconds after you remove the keys to prevent any damage to the expensive turbo system. I explained this to the valet staff and they said they understood. As I went to drop off my car the one valet guy took my keys expressing how much he loved this model of car and how fast they were. (This is when I should have used street parking) While waiting for them to pick up my car I could hear it start up underneath me. (The cars are parked in an underground garage) I then felt my heart drop as I could hear my just started engine being revved up repeatedly and way beyond whats needed to drive. As he pulled it out to me and handed me the keys, he again explained how much he loved my car. He then said something that made me want to beat the living s#it out of him. He told me that he didn't know how to shut off my vehicle so he has just been killing the engine to shut it down.(This also made me wonder why he had to be shutting it off more than once, shouldn't they just park it and leave it alone until I need it? Please God tell me they weren't out joyriding!) ARGHHH!!!!!!!!! I looked over at my wife and decided it would be best to not end up in jail on our anniversary. I just took a deep breath and grabbed my keys and left.

Now that I have gotten that off my chest let me tell you about the hotel. It is a very beautiful and well decorated place. It is set up to look and feel as if you are at a vineyard. The staff at the counter are extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms are set up very nicely and spacious. The staff even sent up some champagne and chocolates with a card that said Happy Anniversary. The bed linens are very soft and comfortable as well as the mattress. The pillows are down and are comfy, although I am allergic lol. They offer a lot of channels and pay per view which is nice. The television is a little outdated and small, but most hotels seem to have this problem. The bathrooms were nice and come fully stocked with premium ammenities. My overall experience with the hotel (NOT INCLUDING VALET!!) WAS NICE. I don't think I will stay here again but that shouldn't stop anyone else. This is a great place, especially for wine lovers. (They offer wine tasting in the lobby daily) Plus if you check in with Yelp you get a complimentary bottle of wine. That's free booze people lol.

Absolutely amazing stay. You hear about the "Nordstrom" Service level, and this place had it down to a art. We walked in after a day of adventuring and were greeted by a big smile and a warm hello.

Check in was not only painless but here is where the stellar service kicks in: my wife had bought a small bouquet of flowers at Pike Market, and we figured we could throw them in a water glass, our attendant/host, insisted on grabbing a vase - ran to the back room and grabbed one. These are the little things that make a big difference.

I inquired if we had missed the wine tasting (I was pretty sure we had since it was past the posted time), and he advised that indeed we had, but that he would be happy to check in the back and see if there was any left. He asked if we preferred white or red, I said red, wife said white, and another few moments in the back and he returned with a glass of white wine for her and a sangria for me (they were out of the red wine). Another "extra mile" moment.

He also asked if we had or needed dinner reservations and made a recommendation for restaurant "Purple", which we elected to try and was also very nice.

The room was beautiful, appointed nicely, ice was within a reasonable distance, beds very, very comfortable.

The room was a definite four stars, the incredible service added another.

Misc:
-Hotel is dog friendly. I think that is really cool.
-Parking is $49 per night!! I thought that was quite steep. We parked in the overnight lot across the street for $35 per night. Still steep but better.  
-Pike Market is an okay walk there, but the return trip is all uphill. Consider a Taxi or Lyft for a ride back to the hotel.

I am currently staying at this hotel on business for 11 nights. My room is huge and I do love it.  

Day 1 in the morning. I woke up at 5am to shower for work.  The shower was luke warm and cold during some intervals.  Keep in mind that it is in the low 30's in the morning in Seattle currently.  I thought this was a fluke so I didn't say anything. I also ordered breakfast room service and the person forgot half of my things.  The excuse was that they are very busy... honestly I don't care... you are a hotel providing a service. I let things go as I understand mistakes happen and things go always go perfectly. I just don't appreciate the lack of ownership.

Day 2.  I took another luke warm/cold shower again. I went downstairs on my way to the office and had a pleasant conversation with the front desk.  They assured me they would fix it and have someone go up right away.  I came to the hotel from the office at 9PM. I saw a very nice note that said the issue for the water was checked out and they had fixed it... with a smiley face.

Day 3. I turned on the shower and the water was even cooler than the other days.  I called the front desk and told them that I had a note on my desk saying it was fixed.  The front desk said that they could not fix it and that when everyone takes showers in the morning the water gets cold.  Ok I get it when I am in Vietnam I have cold water.... or in Bali in the jungle. BUT I am in Seattle at a nice hotel! She said she couldn't do anything about it.

Day 4.  I showered at 12PM instead so I could have a hot shower.  The hot water lasted for 15 min.  I got dressed up and went downstairs at 1PM to have Sunday brunch and the hotel restaurant but it is closed.  They closed for cleaning.  I went to the front desk and asked if they are serving food and Bridgette at front desk said no.  No one here is proactive at all.  All they say is "sorry" and hope that people will go away. So I asked if the Hotel Monaco was serving food at their hotel in their restaurant.  She said they are closed too.  I needed to get food quick and work so I didn't want to walk around cold Seattle in search of food.  I went to my room and figured I would just order rom services since they service brunch in the room on weekends from 8am to 2pm per their menu.  I called and I can't even order room service.  I can only order food that is in the overnight menu, most of which I can't eat because it is beef.  So I ordered a grilled cheese and tomato soup.  Room service was only available until 1PM because they had to close the kitchen for cleaning.  I asked why had they not told the guests? I would have woken up earlier and eaten or make other arrangements.  He said it wasn't his fault and that he just found out 3 hours ago.  

So I didn't trust the staff at the hotel so after I ordered my sad grilled cheese, I called the Hotel Monaco and asked if their restaurant was open.  They said yes and until 2:30pm!!!!!!!  I could have had a proper meal and worked during my meal there.  The hotel heard my story and about the lie from the staff at the Vintage and they offered to pack some food up and send it to my room which I thought was super nice.

This is an example of being proactive and making things right. The vintage only knows how to say sorry, not take the blame and DO NOTHING.

I had to ask if they can move me into another room or another hotel because I didn't want to take cold showers.  They tried to do nothing or suggest anything to make my stay better.

I am on the phone with the supervisor (Bridgette) now (the one that told me the restaurant was at the sister hotel was closed).  She said she thought I was looking for breakfast only which ends at 10:30. I said that I asked for brunch, lunch or whatever that serves food close by.  She said that I only said breakfast and I said again no I said brunch and you event repeated what I said.  She changed the whole story again saying that the other hotel was closed for breakfast and brunch.  I told her I called them and they were open until 2:30 for brunch.  She said their website says closed for breakfast at 10:30.  Why would I be looking for breakfast at 1PM???  This is staff being lazy.

I decided to move hotels and go to the Hotel Monaco.

If I could give less than a 1, I would right now based on their lack of customer service this morning. BUYER BEWARE of gypsy car service people hanging out in the drive way WITH the hotels permission. We had car service to the airport prearranged this morning. When we walked outside there was a sloppily dressed man with a black towncar that answered yes to our question of "are you with x car company, we have a reservation". The bellman helped load our bags and we were off to the airport. When we arrived the driver than asked for payment. We explained that we had paid in advance, that the company had our credit card on file he then stayed he was not with x car company but with Americana and that we must pay. He would not identify himself either other than say he was with Americana. We called our car company and found out that his type of scam is happening often. We proceeded to check in while he stalked us in the airport. We tried calling the hotel And Sasha at the desk had less than any customer service skills informed us that she gave the police our info. After talking to the police we found out they did not have a report. So the hotel actually have all of our information  to this crummy car service instead of the police. She also said she was charging our credit card for the service. She was not interested in hearing what happened or even willing to try to resolve the problem. Have always been impressed with Kimpton but this experience ruined it. Specifically Sasha and her crappy attitude and lack of willingness to listen and her overwillingness  to give personal info to a gypsy car service.

Arrived very late in Seattle and ended up in a small room facing a mural wall on the third floor... The man at the desk said he would set us up into another room the next day since all the rooms were booked.
After being taken care of by a couple of very friendly people behind the front desk I am now sitting in a larger beautiful vintage room on the 10th floor overlooking Fall foliage and facing Mount Rainier.
Easy access to everything, clean, charming , and modern amenities better than the W and comparable to the Sheraton. Thanks for making my first visit to Seattle an even better one.

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights on our anniversary weekend getaway. The hotel was conveniently located in Downtown and made it easy to get most anywhere - Pioneer Square, Pike's Market, Capitol Hill, Airport Link, and downtown shopping. Though the hotel is small (small lobby, small rooms) it has the creature comforts you need. The decor could use some updating, but the beds are cozy and the amenities are as good as just about any other 4star.

The reason I love to stay at Kimpton Hotels is the customer service. I didn't even remember telling the representative we were staying for our anniversary when I made the reservation, but sure enough, we were greeted with a bottle of chilled champagne and chocolates and a hand-written note from the concierge upon check-in. That, the free wine tasting, the (much needed) umbrellas, newspapers, library, etc. all make Kimptons stand out!

So, if you don't mind a "vintage" feel, this hotel is a great fit for a weekend stay!

The Comfort Inn was very clean and the room was very comforting as well was the ability to sit in the room and access the desk area where I was able to use the internet to keep in contact with my employer while out of town. The staff were very busy keeping the facility very clean and safe the pool was wonderful and the cleanest I have experienced.

This is a real gem for staying downtown close to so many attractions - theatre, symphony, museums, Pike Place Market, restaurants, bars, etc. Outstanding, friendly staff, service, wine receptions, on-site parking, etc. Rooms are a bit "vintage" but they are about to embark on a major remodel. In the meantime, they are comfortable, tasteful and quiet. The on-site restaurant, Tulios, is fantastic. Great food, wines, service and reasonably priced. I usually don't dine at hotels, but our dinner was absolutely delicious. See my separate review. This is our new go-to hotel when staying overnight in the city - I just hope the remodel doesn't result in it being less affordable. I think it's charming as is!

Stayed one night at Vintage Hotel after a purchase from Priceline.com . We were pleasantly surprised with how friendly and helpful the hotel staff was. The staff at this hotel make it a five star hotel.

Make sure to attend the 5:00pm wine tasting in the lobby. The concierge serving the wine was great.

The rooms are clean and they are what you should expect at a smaller hotel. We will be back.

Our experience is for the service, as we unfortunately did not have the chance to experience this hotel fully.  This took place on July 30, 2014 (Wednesday), roughly after 3 PM.

My husband and I came to Seattle for a few days to look for an apartment, and his company set us up with this hotel (only to later cancel it on us without informing us; they had registered us with another hotel later).  When we walked up to the desk to check in, the young lady behind the counter looked up our reservation on the computer and then said, "It's been cancelled."  That's it.  Just, "It's been cancelled."  When my husband showed her the confirmation e-mail receipt, she only said again, "I know, but it's been cancelled."  She offered no explanation, no apology, NOTHING.  Well, my husband got on the phone with the travel company his job used to set us up with this hotel.  Before he handed the phone to the girl behind the desk, he said to her, "They (the travel company) just want to see if there are any other rooms available."  The girl answered very curtly to my husband, without looking at him, "There are no available rooms."  Seriously, THAT WAS IT.  So, while we were jet-lagged, tired, and on the phone trying to figure out what happened, the girl behind the desk and her friend were laughing and carrying on as if we weren't even standing there.  

This treatment of our situation was absolutely unacceptable.  She offered no apology, no "I am so sorry this has happened to you," no "Would you like something to drink?" or "You are welcome to help yourself to coffee or tea while you sort this out."  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!

Only later, at the very end, did another young lady with blonde hair approach us and invited us to stay for wine and autograph session with some fishermen; but too little too late.  We were walking out the door.

Please, folks, when someone walks into your establishment after long hours of travel, and then experiences a cancellation or other incident, don't take their situation lightly.  Don't act like they aren't standing there, or as if they don't matter.  Offer them an apology, water to drink, DO SOMETHING!

Recently stayed over Memorial Day weekend. I took the red eye from Honolulu and arrived early in the morning. I requested early check in, but wasn't sure how early they would allow. When we called soon after I landed, they were very accommodating and let us check in around 9 am. As always, our goldfish was waiting and the room was amazing, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed the wine reception in the afternoon, and then had dinner at Tulio. The next day at check out, the concierge was very kind to make several recommendations for wine tasting that afternoon in nearby Woodinville. Part of choosing a Kimpton is for the experience. This is my 5th Kimpton experience spanning DC, NYC, and Seattle and I have always enjoyed the staff, the atmosphere, and the Vintage is no different.

Being a Kimpton hotel, you know that you'll be experiencing excellent service - as good if not better than 5 -star hotels. The rooms are very nice - and roomy. Don't forget the free wine hour every night! The hotel is connected to a great restaurant as well.

On my first trip to Seattle, for work, the Hotel Vintage Park made a great first impression.  I checked in late and was parched after hours in the airport and plane, so I refreshed myself with the iced lemon (and regular) water in the lobby.  Other great amenities included the daily morning coffee and nightly wine social.  I was surprised that the wine reps were so uninformed when I asked questions, but if you're just there for free wine, it's awesome.

Unfortunately, the hotel does not provide continental breakfast, and when I asked about it, the employee suggested the restaurant (Tulio was delicious but pricy).  My last day I went to Tulio for breakfast on my way to the office and was able to pay with two $5 vouchers from the hotel that I received for declining room service on two days of my week-long stay.  The granola and yogurt with fresh cut strawberries and bananas were well worth foregoing room service.

The room itself was exceptional.  Staying by myself, I had a large room with king-sized bed, big flat screen TV, and lots of extras (which all cost).  They have $15 slipper socks in the closet, a yoga mat, and cheetah-print bathrobes, none of which I used, but they're there.  The bed was SOOOO comfy!  The mattress wasn't too firm, and the blankets and pillows (4) were all down, so very soft.  The room had high-reaching windows the length of the room, with thin, privacy blinds and thicker, blackout blinds.  There was an alarm clock provided with a jack for a USB phone charger, which was also a huge convenience.  The staff was very friendly, and I took advantage of the Q-tips provided ( often forget to pack them), the complimentary toothpaste, and hit that water in the lobby more than once.  They also offered complimentary deodorant, razors, hair dryers, and a list of about 15 other free items.  At the government rate, this hotel was an exceptional value, and I'd definitely stay here again.

This place was just fine.

Can't find the Holy Bible in my room. Still looking.

I was shocked...no coffeemaker in room.  I asked my workmate, who booked the room---you have to order special.  Lame!  It's Seattle. Okay, fine, conserve energy.  But, if guests don't want or use coffee, then no energy is being wasted.  So, my workmate requested one for the next morning for me, it wouldn't work.  I did everything.  I am no dummie, but now apparently there was some weird way to work it.   Gall. I stay in motel/hotel rooms sometimes and it I shouldn't have to work that hard to make coffee.  I am over it!
This is the best part. I had enough thought (or whatever) to buy these Starbuck's Chilled 16z can espresso types drinks to have just in case

Hotel is very classic. Nice room, great T.V.! Bar-okay.  Restaurant has nice reputation.  
Very central in the City. I enjoyed my stay.  It was free and in downtown Seattle. Concierge and desks attendants were kind and hip.

Always read your receipt.  Booked a park and cruise with hotels.com for one night stay and 8 nights parking.  When I returned I had to pay $380. to get my car out of parking.

Dearest Hotel Vintage Park, just because every waking thought involves desperately wanting to leave you doesn't mean I don't love you....

If I can be a self-appointed expert on anything, it's Vintage Park. Since we've lived here for over a month (thanks, fire!), and since our dog was referred to this morning as 'the resident one', I imagine it's time to properly recognize and appreciate the excellence, professionality, and hospitality with which I'm surrounded.

What do I love?
~~~~~~~~~~~~
*The staff.
I've never had less-than-stellar interactions with any Kimpton employee at any Kimpton hotel, and Vintage Park is no exception. From Tina and Kallie sending up a complimentary bottle of wine and nice welcoming note on our first night, to the doormen/valet guys having Syd well-trained to know where the dog treat jar by the door is located, to a friendly "Welcome back" from whomever's working the desk as I return, to excellent and thorough housekeepers, everyone is just wonderful at what they do.

*The rooms.
Comfortable, just a tad funky, lots of red, extremely comfortable bed, relatively fluffy towels, and massive bathroom counter space (good for laying out everything you need for weeks instead of days!). We're on the east side of the building so have a lovely view of the Central Library and whatever sun decides to shine early on a given day.

*The coffee.
I'm a Seattleite, so this is important. Many a nice hotel I've stayed at has disappointed me by having sub-par complimentary coffee in the morning. Not here. Instead, there's plenty of hot and freshly brewed Caffe Vita, and a boxful of Mighty Leaf teas. (For out-of-town visitors, Caffe Vita's a small, local chain with great coffee, so you're getting a nice Seattle experience.)

*Dog-friendly.
One of the reasons we're here is that Kimpton hotels are incredibly dog-friendly. They don't charge an extra daily pet fee, they keep dog treats by the door, and they'll bring up a big fluffy dog bed and food and water bowls if you need them! If you're traveling here with your dog, Freeway Park (just northeast of the hotel) is the closest large grassy area, and there are a couple of off-leash dog parks within a mile walk.

Other things visitors might want to know....
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
*Fitness room.
There is one, and like many in older refurbished buildings, it's tiny but adequate. It contains a treadmill, an elliptical, and a recumbent bike, plus some pads, yoga mats, weights, and exercise balls. If you're a runner like me, there are lots of great places to run in the area (and the room has a tiny jogging map with suggested routes).

*Mini-fridge.
This is the one thing I hate about the room: the mini-fridge is seriously mini, and it's stuffed with mini-bar bottles and cans that you have to take out and put elsewhere if you want to keep anything of yours in it. (I mean, how can I get through displacement without copious amounts of wine and beer?!) If you're here for more than a night or two, don't count on being able to store many leftovers or small grocery items.

*Dining options.
This area of downtown is a little bit of a dead zone for dining (depending on what you want). There are some great higher-end restaurants around (Purple, Earth & Ocean, Sip, and the hotel's Tulio), but there isn't much that's budget-friendly/lighter unless it's lunchtime and some of the many smaller spaces catering to the downtown lunch crowd are open. For more (cheaper) options, you've got to walk a bit north, more into the retail core of downtown. That said, Purple in particular has been a lifesaver when it comes to takeout; a full-size salad is huge and not too expensive! Sazerac is another nearby spot that's got some good options at dinner in particular (I highly recommend the Artisan Lettuce salad with chevre). And Essential Market, a few blocks away, is good for soups, sandwiches, and wine/beer runs (open until 9 pm during the week).

*Parking.
The hotel has valet parking for $34/night, and a garage across the street has it for $31. There's some street parking in the area (and it's free between 8 pm and 8 am), but two blocks in particular (7th between Madison and Spring, and Spring between 6th & 7th) are frequently littered with broken glass from shattered car windows so I'd advise against parking there. I've lived in the area for a few years, and there's something consistent about those two isolated blocks....If you want to look for cheaper garages, you probably need to head east out of downtown, up toward First Hill and the hospitals.

Overall, for what you pay compared to what you get, Vintage Park is really a fantastic value for a downtown hotel. I hope I never have to stay here again as long as I live a mile away, and that I'll be able to check out sooner rather than later, but I'm grateful that if I have to be displaced somewhere, it's somewhere like this....

I have stayed at other Kimpton properties but this was my first time at the Vintage.  I loved the location which was within walking distance of many good restaurants and shopping. This location is smaller then others I have stayed but it had a nice intimate feel and as I have found at all Kimpton's the hospitality is amazing!  
The entrance to the hotel lobby is in the parking garage entrance which is kind of different but the staff greet you with smiles and quickly get you baggage into the lobby for check in.   The Tulio italian restaurant is accessible directly from the lobby and they serve a traditional breakfast there in the morning.  We also had a nice dinner the second night and it was intimate and very enjoyable.
I was there with a couple of friends from out of town and we easily walked down to the Public Market and the Westlake mall for shopping and lunch.  Just a delightful visit.

As I said, the service is what keeps me coming back to the Kimpton properties and I found that the case again at the Vintage. The first day I had checked in, I had a little trouble with my card key to get into my room.  After several tries I finally got it to work.  I then wanted a cold drink to relax and grabbed the ice bucket and in my bare feet head out to find the ice machine.   After getting my ice I again  tried to get into my room and the key would not work.  I then headed down to the front desk and Steve who was working there greeted me and was very happy to recode my key.  I then proceeded back up to my room to find that key did not work either.  I then headed down again in my bare feet ( some of the other guests in the elevator probably thought I was a hippy or just strange with no shoes on), back to the from desk and another nice person at the desk made me two brand new keys and headed up again only to find the keys did not work.  I again went down with  my trusty ice bucket in hand ( started feeling like Tom Hanks in Castway with his volleyball called Wilson :) ) and explained my problem.  A nice lady came up to me and introduced herself as Amanda the manager and had seen me come down earlier and wondered what she could do.  I explained and she then asked Steve to use another method to recode the key and also to have maintenance go up and check out the card reader.  She then took me back up stairs with the master pass key and let me in my room.  She was very nice and apologized for the inconvenience and said when I went down for the free wine tasting in the lobby to stop by the desk and a new key would be there for me.  I did and really enjoyed the wine tasting which all Kimpton's offer at there locations. I got my new key from Steve and he promised me it would work this time.  I told him I appreciated his efforts to help me and that I knew that these technology issues come up every so often and I knew it was not his fault.  
I then headed out with my friends for a nice dinner and when I came back the key was working perfectly.  
The next day, Amanda sent up a nice bottle of wine and a lovely note thanking me for my patiences and again apologizing for the inconvenience.  
I bring this story up because it an typical example of the level of service that I have always come to expect at Kimpton's.
So if you are looking for a memorable and delight stay in Seattle I would highly recommend this hotel!

My partner and I did a two-night stay here last week.  

Every staff member we dealt with, from the concierge to the doormen, was polite, friendly and helpful.  The concierge gave us some great recommendations for dinner.

Loved the location, too - an easy walk to Pike Place, Pioneer Square and the monorail, among other places.

We did stay in one of the higher-end rooms (a king corner - thanks to a generous gift), so I can't speak to the size of the other rooms, but we had plenty of space.  The bed was very comfortable, the and room was impeccably clean.  (I have stayed in other Kimptons and had much smaller rooms - but they've always been clean and comfortable even when we haven't had much additional space to move around.  A hazard of urban boutique hotels, but one I'll gladly deal with for the service and location)

I had the fortune of staying here last week, without use of the valet or most amenities.

Here are some positives to note:
-Most basic amenities are available such as basic cable, iron, room service
-Spacious and high ceilings
-They have coffee in the mornings, along with a happy hour between 6-7
-The hotel is about 10 minutes away from shops like the flagship Nordstrom, nice restaurants, and movie theaters
-Staff are very friendly and helpful

Here are some items I took issue with:
-Construction nearby was temporary, but enough to keep you up after 9:00 a.m.
-Parking is not best here
-The freeway off-ramp nearby creates for traffic that can make it hard for a visitor to drive around
-Walking down to Pikes Place is a pain, considering you're on 5th and the walk is uphill when you go back. Consider driving.

Bottom line:
The other option is the Fairmont, and a few other hotels in the area. I would consider them as well, but the Hotel Vintage park will do for most.

I loved this place! The rooms are a little small - we had four people in a queen/queen so we kind of brought that upon ourselves.  Next time I'd opt for the deluxe queen/queen to have a sitting area.  

The location is great, very close to the monorail, Pike's market, the library and Columbia Tower.  

I just love how cozy the lobby is and the wine hour is pretty terrific.  One night they had live music during wine hour and that was a blast.  We stayed and talked with the musician and his wife for maybe an hour after.  We met and talked to so many interesting people during our four days there.

The staff are great!  So friendly but not intrusive.  When we checked in, we had missed wine hour and they handed us a glass of port and a chocolate truffle.   Nice touch.

Wonderful last weekend getaway at 27 weeks pregnant! The staff was professional and accommodating, especially Brian and Dan who worked the front desk on both nights of my stay. Everyone really was a delight to greet, offering extra pillows, lots of directions and plenty of baggage assistance as my mom and I shopped throughout our stay.

The hotel is older which means smaller rooms and some decor around the property could defiantly use freshening. Normally, I would not give 5 stars except that the customer service was truly exceptional and outshines many other high-end, modern hotels. The room was very clean and had a good size flat screen TV. The location was central for both sightseeing and shopping.

I highly recommend this hotel for service, location and value.

This is a tough one because this place came recommended by a friend.  But we have a number of reasons we will offer for our rating:
1. We didn't know that this was a pet friendly hotel - first 7 floors (i think).  We were on the third floor and no one told us that it was possible that people with pets had stayed in our room.  I realize that not everyone travels with pets.  But I think that it should be made crystal clear that pets may have stayed in the room.  We're not anti-pet or anything, but my wife is allergic to dogs.  We learned that they have a hypoallergenic floor but that was only after our first day here.  We didn't ask to move (our choice).  
2. The housekeeping service was abominable. I mean absolutely horrible.  Management should take action about the housekeeping service.  A. We had glasses in our room which we had brought up from the lobby.  They were not removed after the first night.  Only after we had a collection did housekeeping decide they should clean them up.  B. I realize this is a green hotel and we are eco-conscious too, but why not replace the bath mat in the bath or, just leave it as it is just a bath mat.  C.  Our last night here, we decided we wanted fresh towels.  So that morning we left our towels on the floor.  THEY DIDNT LEAVE NEW ONES!!!  We had one new one left and we had to call for another.  Can you believe it?  D.  Finally, the icing on the cake - turndown service.  They turn down one side of the bed (when it is so obvious two are staying in the room) and one chocolate!!!!    
3.  The best things were the ladies at the front desk (Desiree and another lady who worked in the evening).  And the guys opening the doors up front were very friendly.

I feel like the hotel was nice but I didn't have much time to explore. I arrived to Seattle around 3 and requested an early arrival. Normal checkin is at 3, but somehow our rooms weren't ready until 5. So we only had enough time to do the free wine hour which was a plus. I'm glad they didnt hold back on the wine because I was frustrated about the waiting to check in. But then we went to dinner and got back late. Check out the next day. Its right across the street from library, which is cool looking from the outside. Easy access all around downtown. No complaints. Room was nice. I like the decor corks. We had a high floor double queen with queen sofa sleeper. We parked on the street. Although the I didn't need any additional toiletries, they did offer them. This was a plus. I wish we would've gotten a better view. At least we got a high floor. Overall okay stay, I probably wouldn't stay here again. It didn't have the wow factor for me.

We stayed here for three nights on our trip to Seattle/Vancouver, and it was ok.  The staff was very nice, and it was clean, but it is also tiny.

Our room was quite small, there is no coffee maker in the room because there is no room for it. They do have coffee in the lobby in the morning, but it's just not as convenient. After we left I looked at my reservation email again and saw that we were supposed to have a city view, but our room faced an alley and a parking garage, which left it kind of dim. It seemed to me that the hotel was not full, so I don't know why they couldn't have given us a room with a better view.  The room was also cold and we had trouble adjusting the temperature. Once while we were in the lobby for the wine tasting (which was a nice perk), my husband mentioned it at the front desk. They sent someone up right away to adjust it, but it still seemed cool and inconsistent.

Another frustration is their parking is ridiculously expensive, and they don't volunteer the fact that parking on the street is free after 10pm. We didn't figure it out right away, so we wasted $39 for ONE NIGHT of parking in their garage.

The hotel is not far from the Market, but there really isn't much going on in the immediate area. The hotel is uphill from everything by the water so you'll get a great calf workout if you do a lot of walking back and forth. :-)

They did have a wine tasting one night while we were there, which was kind of a nice touch (yet cramped because the hotel is tiny - did I mention that?)

Bottom line is that if you can get a good deal and don't mind that the rooms are small and there isn't much around, it's worth at stay. We paid $529 for three nights with a discount coupon through Hotels.com

First visit to this Kimpton property. Overall impression was good, front desk was cheerful. Sorta disappointed in my room. As an inner circle member, I usually get a sweet upgrade with some surprises, but not this trip.

Another first, around 2am I was woken up by a very off smell in the room. At first I tried to just ignore it, but it did not go away. I finally called the front desk, Dawn the overnight person took great care and moved me no questions asked. I really appreciated her attention and prompt response to the situation.

Overall a four star experience.

I would stay here every time and so should you!  Not only is the hotel close to everything (endless shopping, restaurants, monorail etc.) but the rooms are comfortable and spacious!  I cant say enough about the staff - we were welcomed with a bottle of wine and chocolate and well taken care of for our 2 day staycation. We also enjoyed their free "Wine Happy Hour" and loved the per friendly atmosphere!

I have not stayed at the Hotel Vintage but would refer them to anyone I have coming to town to visit.

I was making a floral delivery of wedding flowers on a Saturday afternoon. Parking can be tricky downtown so I was happy when I found a 3 minute load/unload out front. I went in to figure out where the event was being held and was greeted by warm welcoming faces. After figuring out where I was going I needed to find a cart. I was directed to the Bellman/Valet. Steve was on the job!! He helped me unload my car and up to the location. I asked him if I was going to get ticketed, he looked at me and said "I'll take care of it, give me your keys" I was upstairs for about a half hour. When I finished up I found my car parked in the valet area and Steve was there to greet me. He felt like a long lost friend and we chit chatted about dogs and cars and I was on my way.

As a florist I make a lot of deliveries all over the city and have had many experiences with Bellmen, Valets and Hotel employees. Hotel Vintage was so helpful and welcoming they made me want to book a room and stay.

Great hotel!  I love Kimpton Hotels and always try to stay there.

We've stayed at this hotel twice, the other time was before the remodel.  The remodel is terrific.  Modern, clean, but still cozy and comfortable.  The staff is outstanding!  Really, some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered at a hotel.  Kudos to that!

The only reason I didn't give this hotel a 5 star rating is because of the fitness center.  It's very small (like a walk-in closet), with very little equipment.  The equipment in there is good, but just not a lot.  It's bright and cheery, but just very small.  The Gold's Gym a block away will let you in for free with your Kimpton hotel key though, so that makes up for it.

Wine hour is great and Tulio restaurant was a nice addition.  Parking is pricey (as in any city), but if you get a hybrid car you'll pay half price for parking!  (Again, another reason I love Kimptons!)

We'll be back to Seattle again and I know we'll be staying there or at one of the other two Kimptons in Seattle.

This was my first time staying in a hotel with my dogs and I was a little nervous.  The hotel was so exceptional in checking my dogs and I into really quickly.  Valet service was very nice.  The staff address me and my dogs by our names.  They had treats ready for my dogs when they arrived.

The room was so spacious, even with two dogs.  And the view of the library was amazing.  The room was so clean and well setup.  They had little beds and doggie bowls already prepared.  The hotel was very quiet and comfortable.  Having the restaurant right below was very convenient as well.  

The hotel staff was impeccable.  They were always available and friendly.  

It was all those little extra attention to details that made the experience so nice.  I would totally recommend this hotel to anyone and probably stay there again.

What a sweet boutique hotel! Lobby was small but service was fast.  We arrived at 9:00 a.m. And they gave us rooms because they had availability.  My room was pretty small but it worked. Bed was comfortable. I wish that I could have turned the A/C below 69.  I like to sleep in a room a bit cooler than that and the windows didn't open.  My view was awful, but what are you going do?!  Bathroom counter top had no room for toiletries.  And the bathroom needed more light for morning routine.  That was my biggest peeve. I'm not sure I'd be back.

I stayed at the Kimpton's in Seattle (Vintage and Monaco) several times. After making another reservation at the Vintage I noticed they quoted me a specific rate type and classification but were going to charge me a different rate type which was $73/night above the quoted rate classification when I checked in plus the additional tax.

I called the Vintage and also the Kimpton Reservations and they told me I didn't understand they quoted me a rate type and classification so they bumped it up to the higher rate because the rate type and classification wasn't available but the lower rate type and classification shows on my conformation.

Kimpton has been doing this to thousands and thousands of travelers apparently and they don't understand its deceptive.

This is a beautiful hotel, really nice decor in the lobby, and the adjoining restaurant was beautifully restored, with a very nice breakfast. It's striking that the hotel is so classy, but is so animal friendly. I know that there were several dogs staying in the hotel, but did not see or hear them indoors, only walking around outside. Its very clean. I was grateful to the front desk staff for helping me get tickets to the Pompeii exhibit at the museum.  The only one downside to the place was the $40 per night parking. We kept our car off-site most of the time, and got a "Lift" to go pick it up. It is an easy walk to the Pike Market, really high end shopping, and the fantastic library is right across the street.  Would love to stay here again.

This is my least favorite hotel I've stayed at in Seattle.  When we stayed the lobby and restaurant both looked like a bomb had struck as they were under construction and closed.  There was no sign in the bombed out lobby to direct us to the third floor where a makeshift lobby had been set up in a hotel room (we found the sign in the elevator).  

Although I had called to make sure they could add my loyalty number to my reservation and promised an upgrade even though I'd booked through Priceline, when I checked in the receptionist said I wasn't a loyalty member and gave us a hotel room on the floor below the makeshift lobby.

Once we were in the room we were greeted with a notice that they'd be testing the alarm system starting at 9:00 am the next morning.  All hopes of sleeping in while on vacation were quickly dashed.  

The hotel room itself was fine though we had a view of a brick wall, didn't care to use the leopard print robes, and found the bath products to be offensive to the nose.  My wife complained when I used the lotion that I smelled like old lady.  Unfortunately, the same sweet smells of the moisturizer were used in the shampoo and body wash.  I pretty much had to settle in to listening to alarms, looking at brick walls, and smelling like an elderly woman.  

When we checked out the receptionist didn't even ask how our stay was.  Either they don't care or they know their hotel sucks.  

The hotel has a good location but it's no better than any of the other hotels in downtown Seattle, pretty much everything is in walking distance.

I was in town for a conference when the conference team booked this hotel for me. I am a rewards member, so I was glad to see they gave me this hotel. I had called to see if I could do an early check in and they told me if I did, they room would probably be on the 2nd floor. I did check in at check in time and they gave me the 11th floor.

The room was nice. It had a great view. The room was comfortable. The clock radio had a outlet for your iPhone that allowed you to run your alarm apps through the TV, which was cool. I could never get it to work. The bathroom had Bath and Body soap and shampoo, which was nice.

The bed was rock hard. It was weird that there was a sheet, a comforter and another sheet on top of that. I should have slept on top of the comforter, but my room was too cold to do that.

There was a fitness center. You have to walk through the garage to get to. It has dumbells and a weight machine. It was better than some of the hotels I have been to. There was also free wine in the evenings, which was nice. It was a tight fit getting everyone in that lobby area. Parking is a tad bit pricey at almost $50 a day.

There is a restaurant onsite which is great. I was tempted to order breakfast the day I was leaving, but some of the choices were obscure. I did like the fact that everything was within walking distance of the hotel. I never used my rental all week that I was there.

While I probably would not stay at this place if I was on my own dime. Overall this hotel was not bad.

My girlfriend and I stayed here during a vacation to Seattle. Without going into too many details, this hotel treated us like royalty. There were a couple hiccups which were solved very quickly and to our highest satisfaction, including discounting parking for one night (we arrived very late in night/early morning), and a change of rooms as we wanted to be higher up.

The concierge was incredible. I don't expect this every time, but she was able to find us a cancellation at the Space Needle for dinner, and booked us right away. She also got us a little birthday package customized for us and had it delivered to our room.

This is how they treat a guy wearing jeans and a T-shirt. I'm very impressed.

We always receive a bottle of wine upon check in with our Kimpton loyalty program, but the staff really went the extra mile and made our entire family feel welcome!
You should only be so lucky to enjoy a stay with this wonderful company. It's really a comfortable and relaxing place to stay. The amenities are nice including lovely linens, lotions and soaps, TV selections, and beautifully appointed rooms. Great experience!

Wow. I never thought there would come the day I'd have a negative review for a Kimpton property. I'm a Kimpton loyalist and have stayed at a dozen or so of their properties from DC to Chicago to Philadelphia to San Diego to Baltimore and so on... I've always been impressed by their solid customer service and the overall quality and ambiance of their hotel rooms and public areas. Unfortunately, Hotel Vintage in Seattle didn't make the strongest impression.

I decided to go on a family trip to Seattle and chose Hotel Vintage since I heard they just renovated the property. I remember visiting Seattle two years ago and thought about staying here (then known as Hotel Vintage Park) because it had good reviews. The only flaw, according to travelers, was that the decor was a bit outdated. So, I didn't stay at Vintage in 2012 because, let's be real, your surroundings matter. I'm not a fan of drab old-fashioned decor. I like clean lines, modern twists, and fresh looks. Why do you think I'm a Kimpton loyalist? Many of their hotels are that. I recently read Hotel Vintage remodeled so I thought this was a fine time to visit. I'm regretting that decision. The lobby itself is very small and borderline awkward in size. Aesthetically, it's lovely. There's a fireplace and comfortable seating, but as soon as you walk in, you noticed how cramped things are. It's not cozy; it's cramped.

We got to the hotel in the morning well before our check-in time. Understandably, our room wasn't ready so they said they'd call us when it was (which "wasn't going to be long.") We decided to sightsee and shop while we waited and still... no call back. It was now 7 PM and figured, there wouldn't be a call back and because that's well after the check-in time. The room itself is well-appointed, but we were smack dab in front of the elevator which was a bit uncomfortable because you can easily hear foot traffic and conversations nearby. There were two flaws with the room: 1) because the interior decorations are dark (purples, browns, grays), the room felt darker even with all lights on. The other problem is that the lamps themselves were incredibly dim which made for reading somewhat difficult, 2) the bed frame (which is actually a problem at other Kimpton hotels)... the corners are VERY sharp and more than once, I hurt my leg passing by them. Be careful! I'd be surprised if others haven't contacted corporate yet about those hard corners.

Another unpleasant moment came when in the middle of the night, we could hear our next-door neighbors *ahem* "enjoying themselves." I woke up at 2:30 AM to hear AND see the (apparently thin) walls shaking from the neighbors' bed frames. Moreover, as I stared outside the window trying to fall asleep, I didn't even realize there was a constant flashing light from the parking garage directly across the street. This was too perfect of a moment to say, "OMGAWD. I'M STAYING AT AN UPSCALE BATES MOTEL."

Our room keys also demagnetized after our first night. I understand, however, why this happened. We originally had two reservations because one of those nights was gratis since I reached my bonus points room as a Kimpton Karma member. When we checked in, it was understood we can stay in the same room both nights (originally they said we'd have to change rooms), but somehow the system didn't catch on, and we were locked out of the room and had to go back downstairs to fix the problem.

A couple other minor issues: 1) at the gym (which is oddly outside and has no windows), another guest told me she couldn't get into the gym because she left her key in the room; she asked the front desk to open the door and they literally couldn't. Their keys weren't working too, but I got in. 2) no business center - you have to e-mail front desk to print stuff.

Several positives: 1) some of the front desk staff were friendly especially Elizabeth S. She was very nice and helpful. 2) daily local and national newspaper assortment (which never ran out!). 3) of course, the famous Kimpton wine hour (and here, they featured of course, Washington state wine), 4) location is a couple blocks away from the LightRail to Seattle-Tacoma airport (though I wish a bit closer to "all the action" of downtown... Hotel Vintage seemed to be situated near more businesses than retail or landmarks so don't expect a lot of late-night bars or dining around).

Now, our experience wasn't a disaster, but it wasn't the most fantastic or even "just okay" either. There were a series of problems and annoyances that happened throughout our stay which made it difficult to forget. Aside from our hotel experience here, we had a lovely time in Seattle. I just wish Hotel Vintage, our supposed-to-be "refuge" from sightseeing, was a better place to return to at the end of the day. I sincerely hope I never come across another Kimpton property that disappoints. This was my first (and hopefully only) one.

Friendly posh!  

My queen-bed room was the perfect size; neither claustrophic nor scatter-cracker-crumbs-so-I-can-find-the-door, this one was just right!

Roomy sleep area, two bedside tables.  A large desk with ample electrical outlets for charging those electronics, and enough space for me to complete some sewing alterations to a pair of pants.  Plus a good area for rolling out the yoga mat that was tucked into the closet.    

Best of all, the staff from reception to the bellman and maids were cheerful, efficient and altogether charming.  

I was worried that being on 5th Avenue would put me too far away from the Pike Place Market area, my favorite haunt.  Not at all!  The addition jaunt downhill and uphill on return was exhilarating, and I discovered some terrific tiny pocket parks and some wonderful public art tucked around bases of some of the office buildings.

Looking forward to a return visit, and exploring more of the uptown area.

Let me just start this off by saying that I have stayed at a lot of hotels, ranging from 1 stars to 5 stars.

This hotel is definitely a boutique hotel. The rooms and floors are themed. The theme is Washington state wineries and they have different decor spread throughout the hotel. It's pretty classy looking overall.

The Pro's: The lobby is nice; It is in a decent location in Seattle, close enough (only 1 mile) to the city center; They offer a wine reception from 5-6pm in the lobby; They offer room service; The rooms were spacious and clean

The Con's: There really are no additional amenities (no pool,sauna,nothing); The room service is outrageously priced for what it is; I couldn't even get to the wine reception because there were hoards of people there; the room creeped me out for some reason; you could hear police sirens constantly going off every night from 1-4am so I couldn't even sleep; there is only valet parking which is also expensive

Consistently excellent and striving to get better.  When I arrived this time I was again wowed:  the parking attendants immediately recognized me and addressed me by name; the front desk staff did the same.  The restaurant staff the same.  When I checked in (noon) a room was ready, but they wanted to upgrade me and asked if I'd wait for a prepared king, which was arranged while I had lunch.

I didn't do the wine hour either of my nights here, but they are now serving port and chocolates in the evening.  I didn't partake but it's very civilized.

Yesterday I heard a knocking on my door and an attendant had a tray with a bottles of wine, water, a chocolate bar, and a note welcoming me back.  

In the morning they have stacks of three papers (NYT, Wall Street Journal, and the Seattle TImes from which to help yourself.  This is also true on Sundays, even for the many sectioned NYT.)

While they were renovating the hotel I really didn't like it; while I hate the lobby furniture (hip v. comfortable) aside from the furniture the redesign is lovely.

Fantastic location in Seattle; neighbors the gorgeous library, close to the Freeway but isn't noisy or dirty,and surrounded by incredible restaurants and shopping.  I'd say the location is optimal.  A very short walk to the Pike Place Market, Benaroya Hall, the Seattle Art Museum.  Incredibly civilized.

This hotel is a good match for the incredible and genteel city in which it is located.

My ongoing love affair with Kimpton.

I enjoyed my stay at Vintage. I didn't leave thinking, "Man, I LOVE this place and can't wait until my next stay". The hotel is aesthetically pleasing. Everything is immaculately clean. The staff was average. It's a true boutique hotel--so you'll likely see the same guests/same staff during your stay. The location is decent.The only pieces of constructive feedback I can offer:

- Lobby coffee. One of the BEST things about Kimpton. So I go down a bit before 10am and they've taken it away already. Why? Seriously, keep the coffee longer.
- Our King room's pullout couch. Some people book these rooms with the specific intention of using the sofa sleeper. We did. But when the sofa sleeper bed is so worn out that you have to put several pillows underneath it so you don't sink to the ground, something is wrong.

This property is pretty close to being "awesome". Would not have a problem with staying again should the rate be right.

If you are looking for a place to stay when visiting Seattle, I would highly recommend the Hotel Vintage.  Here's why:
Location - This hotel is on 5th street so it is in a central location and just a few blocks walk to the monorail. The rooms have a great view of the library.
Quality - This hotel is not cheap but it is worth every penny. The rooms are spacious, clean and well decorated.
Great customer service - I actually had two "issues" while staying here. One with the thermostat and one that was actually an error on the part of the company I booked with and not the hotel. On both occasions staff was pleasant and accommodating. They also have a wine reception for guests and we arrived to find a hand written welcome letter along with some pop and cookies compliments of the hotel.
Plus they have tons of extras! Zipcar is literally right next door if you don't want a cab or to walk to the monorail OR you can use one of their complimentary bikes! The restaurant Tulio is excellent (but that's another review lol). They have leopard print bathrobes and yoga mats in the closet for the guests, you can get a goldfish in your room or bring your own pets... I could go on and on!
I have read some of the reviews with less than 5 stars, and although there is no pool and one of our rooms was also facing the elevator, I feel like those people are being incredibly nitpickey almost to the point of ridiculousness. We all know nothing is perfect, but this hotel does it's best!

Great boutique hotel. Free coffee in the morning and some premium tea as well. Also free a wine happy hour evening. Rooms are stylish and modern.

Only negative is the lack of a lobby bar and their after hour room service was a little disappointing. The burger seemed like frozen meat and didn't taste very fresh.

Staff is friendly and helpful.

I've never been disappointed yet with a Kimpton hotel yet and this one once again delivers.  In the style of Kimpton, it delivers a much smaller, intimate, and personal experience than the mega chains such as Hilton, Hyatt, Marriott.

They have a wine-theme throughout the hotel. The lobby, rooms, wallpaper, wall art... its everywhere. The lobby is a bit small but didn't really seem to notice it as a problem.

The service was outstanding. The doorman ran once to open the door for us. The concierge arranged for some flowers for my wife and also added a nice touch of local chocolates and pellegrino.  (Kimpton hotels usually give champagne if it's for a special occasion but we don't really drink alcohol.)

The lobby was a bit small but the room was quite large . Very stylishly decorated without going overboard. Asymmetrically harmonized if that makes sense. Nice oversized windows overlooking the city, but the black out curtains still worked well.

They have coffee and tea in the morning, hot chocolate in the afternoon, and wine hour 5-6p daily. Didn't really get to part take in any of it as was out in the city most of the time but from what I've experienced at several other Kimpton hotels it's always good.

They have free wifi if you're a Kimpton rewards member. I didn't use it so can't comment.

Location is great for anything downtown. 1/2 mile to Pike Place Market, 1 mile to Belltown. My wife and I walked everywhere.

I would definitely go back. Small (in a good way), cozy but stylish, personal, private, intimate. Those are the adjectives I would use for Hotel Vintage.

I like Kimpton hotels. While they have that boutique feel to them, the chain has enough of its shit together that I generally know what I'm going to get when I stay in one. Hotel Vintage is no exception to this rule.

This little Kimpton property is right in the heart of downtown, and sports a jaunty wine theme. The decorations are purple and gray, the rooms are named after local and regional wineries, and as with every Kimpton, they offer the 5pm wine hour. The fittings and decorations are tasteful, fun, and in good shape. Our corner King (thanks for the upgrade!) was spacious, clean, and had a decent view. Staff was friendly and on point. And the restaurant in the lobby isn't half bad.

Parking is pretty expensive here ($39 for overnight valet) so I'd look for street options, especially if staying Sat-Sun, since parking downtown is free on Sundays. However if you could book a package that includes valet, you'll be doing well. We pricelined this hotel in the offseason for $100, and at that low rate, the room was a helluva steal. I'd pay up to $100 more for the same room. Especially given the quality of everything and the location.

All in all, a great example of Kimpton quality.

Awesome hotel in the Seattle area, and definitely one of the best Kimptons I've stayed at to date (but then all again, all Kimptons in general are great!).  Stayed here a few weeks ago for one night and had an enjoyable time here.  Hotel Vintage is very central, in the heart of downtown and near all the top Seattle tourist spots.  Staff here are friendly and definitely represent and provide the legendary Kimpton customer service and hospitality.

I arrived shortly after typical check-in time, roughly around 330PM. At that time, my room (I was upgraded to a King Premier room) was all ready and prepped with a welcome amenity already waiting for me inside. Typically most Kimpton properties that I've visited deliver their welcome amenities around 5-6pm, so this was one of they few experiences where the welcome amenity was delivered much earlier, which was a nice touch!  

The King Premier room was pretty spacious, which offered a large sitting area that included both a large sitting chair, sofa bed, and a large roomy desk with computer chair; a very comfortable bed; and a somewhat small but functional bathroom, furnished with the Kimpton line of CO Bigelow bath amenities.

As far as I know, Hotel Vintage does not have any suite rooms, as its fanciest room available for booking is the King Reserve Room, which is slightly larger than the King Premier room but includes an Executive Amenties package.  Despite not having any true suite options for booking or upgrade, the Hotel Vintage still does a fine job with its well appointed and furnished rooms.  

Overall, I had a great experience here and hope to stay again in the future!

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Vintage for one night during our Seattle vacation. The hotel is in an amazing location, a very quick walk to Pikes Place and the Seattle Art Museum. We had no trouble getting around!

I found the service to be incredibly helpful as well. My boyfriend and I had scheduled massages that got cancelled last minute, and when I told the front desk I was trying to find a new place to get a massage, they took 20minutes out of their day calling many different places in Seattle to find an appointment! So kind!

Also, the free wine hour every night is no joke :) Such a treat!

Absolutely the most accommodating and comfortable hotel ever!!!

I had to travel for business and just my luck came down with the flu the day before I got here- couldn't cancel the trip so bad to travel anyways. I was so fortunate to have been booked at the Vintage. My colleague that joined me the day after was also just starting to get sick.

When they found out we were both under the weather (a call I made downstairs for some room service) they sent up a Get Well Soon complementary service package (see photo) and went above and beyond by sending 2 people up with two full trays of "stuff"- along with a sweet note.

Thank you Hotel Vintage not only is your hotel just awesome, your beds comfortable and your service immaculate- but,  you made a really miserable week pretty comfortable!!

No complaints here.  Decent size room.  Quiet.  Clean.  Nice decor (love the leopard print bath robes or "pimp robes" as we dubbed them).  Close to stuff.  Wine happy hour.

Only complaint is nothing in downtown is open late at night (including convenience stores), so stock up on provisions before you call it a night.
