Request an upper floor and a view!

Friendly, intelligent service starting at the curb. The early registration request was honored with a slight upgade. The room was spacious, tastefully furnished, plenty of electrical outlets, and we had a view and a balcony.
The Hotel is an old building (vintage?), but successfully refurbished and very well maintained. The attached restaurant, Firefly, was excellent, with OK service, but predictably expensive. Wonderful, less expensive restaurants were across Du Pont Circle, a good direction to walk in. Here's the down side: Klimpton will charge an undisclosed "Hotel Fee" of about 5%; it'll be on your final bill along with the room tax. Also, The front desk promised to send up two toothbrushes around 10 pm, but they weren't there by 10:30. Nevertheless, when I called down, the concierge brought them up immediately and I don't think I was charged.
