About Kimpton Hotels
The Kimpton is a family-friendly hotel chain with locations in most major cities of the United States. The Kimpton offers an upscale experience for families looking to be in the center of all the action. Kimpton cares about kids. They offer comment cards especially for children, and hence have gathered a lot of information about what kids need. Their properties reflect this with many kid-friendly amenities. KimptonKids program offers kid-related supplies and provides recommendations on the most family-friendly area attractions.
Kimpton hotels have a range of activities for everyone in the family. Most locations have fitness centers or spas that parents may enjoy; more than half have swimming pools. Kids get special treatment and are greeted with welcome gifts on arrival. Activities vary by location and many hotels have unique family packages. For instance, Kimpton’s Seattle location gives families a free hour of in-room Nintendo, hand-delivered S’mores, paint sets and two tickets to the Seattle Aquarium. The Miami location provides a punch reception for kids, complimentary breakfast for two and up to four tickets to a local attraction, like the Miami Zoo or Jungle Island -- guests’ choice. Families are provided with a list of kid-friendly activities in the area surrounding each hotel. Each hotel rents additional child-related items, such as strollers, and babysitting is also available.
Kimpton prides itself on quality, gourmet dining. The hotel chain has more than 50 restaurants as a whole. Restaurants provide highchairs and booster seats for children. Evening wine hour is a favorite among many guests, featuring sangria.
Suites are more spacious and many come with pull-out sofas. Many units feature modern amenities like DVD players, gaming systems and flat screen televisions.
Kids are taken care of at Kimpton. Parents are given nightlights and in-room child safety kits, containing outlet covers and toilet latches. Free cribs and playpens are available on request. Kids can also use child-size animal print plush robes.
Kimpton hotels are truly pet friendly. They take pets seriously, not adopting the “pet-friendly” badge for looks. Staff members have been known to greet pets by name at the front desk. Kimpton offers pet packages that include food, toys and walking services.
Kimpton offers luxurious and fabulous style -- so good that they sell it. Guests can adopt it for their own homes by shopping Kimpton products online, from bathroom to travel to kids-only accessories.
