This place is fun! The atmosphere is definitely a five, outstanding and unique. An old school that is kind of creepy, mysterious and fun to explore. So many nooks and crannies and rooms and bars and spaces...

We spent the night here in a great old room with high ceilings and chalkboards. The soaking pool was on the other side of the hallway but we didn't try it (looked nice). Before bed, we drank a couple of beers at the Boiler Room bar. So beautiful! Two levels with a spiral staircase and a great industrial/plumbing decor. Funky and cosmic, sort of like Willy Wonka meets Magic Hat. Art on the walls everywhere.

It was busy on a Saturday evening and our server didn't come too often, but we still got our beers. Salmon Run IPA was only alright, I liked the Hammerhead Pale much better. I decided to try the McMenamin's house spirits and ordered an "Alambic "13" brandy, aged for 13 years in oak barrels. Shit tasted like moonshine!

The selection here is far from great. Only a couple of house brews, plus a guest beer: Coors Light. Oy! Three bottled beers only, including St Pauli alcohol-free and Estrella Damm from Spain.

In the morning we had a fine breakfast (kale biscuit!), although service was again sluggish. Not impressed by their brews or spirits, but the Kennedy is a blast of a place to spend a night or two at and I'd do it again.
