Hotel Kinsley sums up Kingston’s trendy rise in one fell swoop. The classy hotel & restaurant has that hate-to-love-it trifecta that appeals to city travelers: expertly curated (and well-photographed) interior design, highly rated dining in beautiful surroundings, and a unique setting – in this case, a bank from the 1860s within Kingston’s historic Stockade district.
Between the fine-tuned, retro-60s aesthetic of the rooms and the classy cocktail bar, the hotel evokes a Mad Men-esque atmosphere. That vibe is particularly accentuated by the overall elegance of Hotel Kinsley’s stately building.
The hotel’s Restaurant Kinsley has quickly become one of Kingston’s top restaurants. Set in what was formerly the bank lobby, the restaurant serves a more traditional, seasonal American dinner and brunch to the tune of many 5-star guest reviews.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Hotel Kinsley is an ongoing project that will eventually consist of four distinct buildings and multiple restaurants. At present, 301 Wall Street – housing seven rooms and Restaurant Kinsley – is its primary location.
While most rooms sleep two, the hotel has one room with two queen beds that can sleep four.
If the rate and two-night minimum on weekends are out of your budget, you can occasionally find more affordable off-season/off-night rates on HotelTonight.
Reservations for the restaurant can be made via Resy.
