I was extremely disappointed with the way a complaint I made about your hotel's cold shower water temperature was handled. I traveled to DC on Sunday 12/4/16 and needed to make sure I was in bed early for a meeting at the White House on Monday morning. However, after making a complaint to front desk (I believe Manager Jeanette Leving (sp?)), it took several hours before anything had been done. She stated she would refund one night of my two-night stay (though stating she would have to refund Travelzoo through whom I booked the hotel, and that they would refund me?). I told her that is fine but does not solve my problem of needing a hot water shower tonight, and to please move us to another hotel. She and the staff did not seem to have urgency around this, as it took several more calls (even though I could easily find plenty of rooms at nearby Kimptons available in just seconds of searching on the Kimpton website) for them to find a room. I have sent an email to you on this.

I love the Kimpton Topaz Hotel! This was actually my second visit to the hotel and I brought my family to see the DC sights. The hotel is very modern and clean. The rooms are also big and I appreciate the ambiance and design. Also, it is walking distance to the White House and right down the street from several restaurants, bars and the park. I would definitely recommend it!
