This place is great. a real winner. it took me three rooms to find the one that was just right. but, top floor has a view out over the wonderful Georgian city of Bath. It was once a college and turned into a hotel. rooms are comfortable and simple. in a good way. the desk is too small to really to any meaningful work, but there are so many other spaces to go sit in around the property that it does not matter. I would return here in a heartbeat.
I asked for directions how to walk to the hotel from a 20 year old at the train station….they have different perceptions of time and space than a 50 year old. it is a walk, but a good walk. not one to be made when in a hurry, but a great walk to make when time is not of essence. the fabulous Putney Bridge. a special place is Bath.
A Kimpton property on the edge of the SMU campus. it is nestled at the corner of two very busy streets. and the windows are not well sealed; well, they are sealed tight, but not against the intrusion of the noise of the street traffic. on the top floor [9th] in a corner room. this should be a good thing, except that the architectural treatment of the corner resulted in a revetment taking out a huge hunk of the room and reducing the window real estate to two small peep holes. The room is really fine. except for the jet engine that resides in the mechanical system. the guys who specify these really bad systems should be forced to live in them for a period of time. it woke me up all night. great big desk with plenty of room to spread out papers. Big Screen TV that has yet to be turned on. I like it and would come back. Big bonus is a pool which is open at 0600. I was there at the opening this morning.
