Brunch is also served on weekends from 11:30am-2:30pm.

Hotel Kinsley has been insured by Ryan & Ryan Insurance Brokers since opening its doors six months ago. When asked why they chose R&R as their insurance agency, the partners responded by stating:

“They are a local agency that provides efficient service and full coverage at all times.”

Since opening in June, Hotel Kinsley shared that they have been overwhelmed by the support from the Kingston and greater Hudson Valley community. They continued by saying, “We have loved welcoming people into the hotel and restaurant and we’re excited to work with other local small businesses and individuals to continue to demonstrate what a vibrant community Kingston is.”
