Kimpton's Summer Deals - all over the US and Canada!
Their Summer Playground Package, which starts at just $199 per night (enter PLGD in the rate code box or mention "Summer Playground" when calling 1-800-KIMPTON), includes comfy amenities like a $25 food and beverage credit and an in-room movie with popcorn. That doesn't sound too playground-y, but how about this stuff:
- Play a game for upgrades. I'm talking rock paper scissors or a hula hoop challenge. You could get a free upgrade.
- Sangria Happy Hour. Need I say more? There are also "Play Dirty" and "Play Nice" -themed cocktails available.
- Virtual Wii Sports. Get your golf, tennis, or baseball game on.
- Tag! They have playground-themed luggage tags available in the lobby.
The above deals are available at all of Kimpton's nearly 50 hotels throughout the US and Canada, but there's even more special stuff happening at NYC's 70 Park Avenue, where you can "Shape Up Your Stay" (starts at $229 -- which is pretty darn cheap for New York!), a package which includes:
- 20% off the Best Available Rate
- Healthy Power Bar and bottled water
- Complimentary in-room yoga basket for use while at the hotel
- Jump rope
- Personalized running route mapped by the concierge
Basically, Kimpton is rocking this summer. They've just earned the Top 2009 Customer Satisfaction Ranking from Market Metrix Hospitality Index -- topping their own previous winning scores with a 94.7 percent -- beating out Fairmont Hotels & Resorts, W Hotels, and other leading luxury hotel chains.
And the low prices they're offering at their chic boutique hotels in these tough economic times are no coincidence. "Over Kimpton's 28 years in business, I don't believe we've ever seen travelers in greater need of the extraordinary kindness and care they find at our hotels," said Niki Leondakis, chief operating officer, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.
So, if you're traveling anywhere in the US and Canada before September 7, be sure and check out the nearest Kimpton. And if your next trip is happening after that date? Stay tuned; we'll tell you what's up.
