The Kinney had comfortable beds, was clean and the staff was friendly. Breakfast was satisfactory but sort of standard fare; they could up their game by offering fresher less mainstream foods, i.e. Fresh granola rather than Kellogg's cereals, real maple syrup for the waffles. The pool and jacuzzi are nice but way over chlorinated. The courtyard is cute. I stayed... More

Spent 4 nights here last week. Had a mini King Suite which was great, plenty of room to spread out and not feel as if I was in a hotel. Room was exceptionally quiet and the bed was wonderful, I hated to get out of it in the morning. Staff was super friendly and and helpful. Breakfast was everything I... More

Great boutique hotel! Nicely renovated rooms with a cool modern design. The room had a really comfy bed and a quiet Air Conditioner. Breakfast was a nice surprise and complete with eggs, fruit, yogurt, bagels and waffles. Front desk girls could be friendlier. Would stay there again!

We stayed here in the final leg of our honeymoon before flying home. The decor was beautiful - really loved the vibrant colours and cute notes in the bathroom. Huge TV too with so many channels which was great. Minor issue was the fridge rattled a lot, mostly because we had nothing in it but easily stopped. We rented the... More

Had a great two nights here. Didn't know the hotel before the refurb/rebrand but liked what we saw. Rooms were large/clean and a comfy bed. Didn't use the pool but there were a few who did that we saw. Complimentary breakfast was okay for what it was. Loved the location of the hotel as didn't want to be in downtown... More

I've stayed at the Kinney many times, well before it converted to a "boutique" hotel. It was a much better value then. They've raised prices, added a parking charge and the service and facilities haven't kept pace with the increases. The fitness room smells, some of the equipment has been broken for weeks and they have the lights on a... More

We showed up to check in and waited 20-25 minutes while the guy at the desk made about a dozen phone calls saying he didn't see a room available. We finally got keys and went up to a nice, but smallish room. The room finishes, bed, and cleanliness were good. Then...we heard a key swipe and jiggle of the door... More

We did a last minute reservation at The Kinney as our final night before flying out of LA. Price is very reasonable compared to other places in LA, and paired with excellent, spacious and completely refurbished rooms this is a real gem.

We are a family of 4 with children aged 11/13.

Was deeply impressed with the customer service here. You would not necessarily expect the concierge at a boutique hotel to be so sweet and kind, yet Alex was nothing but that.
