You know, this Photo Fakeout is rather heartwarming.
See, the photo on its website gives no indication that the lobby of Kimpton’s Hotel Madera in D.C. is tiny. But these photos — snapped by an Oyster reporter just last week (spoiler: D.C. is coming soon!) — show that the lobby is, in fact, teensy. And…that’s okay.
Look. Obviously, Kimpton isn’t going to make a point of spotlightling said teensiness on the Madera’s website. Fine. But Kimpton does make a point of ensuring that the complimentary wine hour, which the boutique hotel company is famous for (we were big fans of the free guest wine receptions at The Muse and Hotel Palomar Westwood, to name a couple), still happened despite the space limitations.
And, as you can see, guests don’t seem to mind the size of the lobby when holding a bold cab in their hot little hands.
