Kimpton Hotel Amenities and Policies

Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants

Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants is an industry pioneer, first introducing the boutique concept to the United States in 1981. We’re known for making travelers feel genuinely cared for through our heartfelt, human connections, thoughtful perks and amenities, inventive meetings and events, bold and playful design, and a sincerely personal style of guest service. Our individually designed hotels blend the surrounding environment with local culture to deliver a memorable boutique experience—both authentic and reflective of the location. Though each of our hotels always ‘feels’ like a Kimpton®, they are delightfully unique. We aim to help you feel connected to the best a city has to offer, so that every experience, and stay, is always distinctly personal. Whether you’re building a travel program, planning a meeting or event, or arranging an individual trip, we mix business with pleasure for a memorable stay every time.

  • We started it. Blame us. We were the first boutique hotel and restaurant company in the U.S, thanks to our founder, Bill Kimpton, and his first hotel in San Francisco. Bill said, “It’s a boutique hotel,” and people said, “A what?” No one had heard of such a thing -- a place where you could stay that was more like someone’s beautiful, livable and stylish home than a big, impersonal hotel where no one really cares if you come or go. Happily, the idea caught on, and today we have lots more of these top, award-winning boutique hotels all over the country, and equally exciting adjacent restaurants that envelop you with our signature style of heartfelt care.
  • We say “cheers” every day by offering a hosted evening wine hour at every hotel. (Another nice thing to have on the “to do” list.)
  • We adapt beautifully. We have more experience turning interesting old buildings into great hotels than anyone… possibly in the world. Our historic adaptations often become matters of great civic pride.
  • We’ve got the key. All Kimpton hotels are Green Key certified, putting to work more eco-conscious practices across the country than you knew existed. We’ve actually lost count.
  • We’ve been named to the FORTUNE “100 Best Companies to Work For” list many times. This one makes us feel all warm inside.
  • Aced it. We’re the only hotel and restaurant company to earn a perfect 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, 10 years running.
  • We made all our hotels pet friendly because travel is better with a friend. We never charge fees or get fussy about size.
  • We could go on, but we’re sure you have somewhere you want to go.
You deserve a hotel as unique as you are. At Kimpton, customizing experiences is our passion and your requests are an invitation for us to excel. Add our bold, playful design, award-winning dining and perk-y amenities and you have the ultimate boutique hotel stay.

Kimpton’s collection of 70+ award-winning restaurants and bars are locally loved, not to mention destinations unto themselves. You’re just steps away from the best places to wine, dine, and unwind. Our celebrated chefs take local, seasonal, and sustainable to heart, hand-crafting meals with creativity and a passion that is delectable. Our bartenders shake things up and squeeze pure genius from uber-fresh ingredients, fine-tuning cocktail classics, and creating surprising new drinks in handsome spaces that invite you to mix and mingle.


We pride ourselves on offering custom-crafted meetings and events to delight any palate. A Kimpton meeting is a one-of-a-kind event, where flexible meeting spaces allow you to chart your own course. Cookie-cutter doesn’t cut it, so through hands-on collaboration, we plan the event that’s just right for you. From unexpected, locally inspired breaks to thoughtfully prepared food handcrafted by our celebrated chefs, and green-friendly standards, meetings with us are anything but business as usual. Our beautifully designed spaces and settings break down walls. They lift spirits and elevate engagement, so we can help inspire your next big idea.

Personal Touch

We create memorable events through passion,

personal attention, collaboration, and customization to

reflect the needs of you and your guests.

Delicious Food + Drink

Fully engaged chefs and bartenders blend their talent

with personalized taste that reflects the local culture.

It’s not meeting food. Or event food. Or banquet food.

It’s great food.

Inspiring Spaces

Our design breaks down walls. Our spaces make

you feel right at home, yet someplace dramatically

different, helping inspire the next big idea.

Memorable Details

Unique event ideas spark from thoughtful

collaboration with chefs and planners. Results are

never one size fits all, it’s always one size fits you.

Thoughtful Perks

We bring little luxuries to every business event

that inspire a sense of belonging. Our long list of

“standard” perks is decidedly non-standard.


Our “standard” perks are decidedly non-standard. We aim to please, because helping people do business is what we’re in the business of doing.

Morning Coffee & Tea

We offer complimentary morning coffee and tea service in our living rooms to give you and your guests a boost to jump start your day.

Evening Social Hour

We host an evening social hour in our living rooms to welcome you back after a day’s adventure or a busy day of business.

Forgot it? We’ve Got it!

If you didn’t bring it with you, we’ve got your back. We’ve got you covered with the travel amenities you need—and maybe a few you hadn’t even considered. 


Our definition of wellness extends beyond the obvious, from our complimentary, high-quality bikes and in-room yoga mats, to healthy options in our mini bar and in-room dining.


OK, we admit it. We have an animal attraction. Can you blame us? At every Kimpton boutique hotel, we invite you to bring your furry, feathery or scaly family member — no matter their size, weight, or breed, all at no extra charge. If your pet fits through the door, we’ll welcome them in. There’s more to our pet-friendly policy than just a no-fuss check-in and scratch behind the ear, though. We’ve got all the goodies you need to keep your pet pampered. Plus at certain properties, our Directors of Pet Relations are on hand (or paw, as it were) to give you and your buddy a tail-wagging welcome.
