Good morning everyone, I hope you had a great Easter and Passover. A few days ago, Laura and I did a roadtrip around California and stayed at The Kinney San Luis Obispo, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. The Kinney is a few blocks from downtown San Luis Obispo (SLO) and a short drive / bike ride to the campus of Cal Poly SLO. Since the hotel is close to the university, the hotel has a college theme. Basic rooms are called Campus Rooms and the suites are called Grad Suite, Dean Suite, and Professor Suite (see all pics and room descriptions here). I used points to book a Campus Room and was upgraded (thanks to my Hilton Diamond Elite Status) to a Grad Suite. I enjoyed staying at this hotel and the location was great for exploring downtown SLO and the surrounding area. I would definitely stay here again the next time I visit SLO. Here are some pics of my room and of the hotel.
The room is decorated with lifestyle photos around the bed and on the ceiling. It definitely has a California surfer vibe.
The furniture in the room gave the room a grad student type feel (not a messy freshman college door type feel).
Here is the couch and desk we didn’t use during our stay.
On the desk, there is a trophy with various paper awards. I selected the “Undisputed Champion of Everything” since it suited me well. The room keys have an interesting design and we were given 2 breakfast vouchers. During the Coronavirus Pandemic, breakfast is grab and go, but you can pick from a few different breakfast items and beverages at the attached restaurant.
The shower was nice, but the bathroom seemed a bit small considering the size of the room.
The bathroom counter was clean and stocked with toiletries. Outside the bathroom, there is a small sink and minibar (looks like an old college dorm set up).
Our view from the room was peaceful… but if you were facing a different side, there may be a military tank pointing at your room from the Central Coast Veterans Memorial Museum.
Next to the lobby, there is a cool place to hang out with interesting artwork on the walls.
The next time you are visiting SLO, I recommending stay at The Kinney San Luis Obispo, Tapestry Collection by Hilton. If you have any questions about the hotel, please leave a comment below. Have a great day everyone!
