Kimpton Hotels is my favorite hotel brand. They spoil me with lavish upgrades and the welcome amenities are usually pretty amazing. And anyone that stays at a Kimpton Hotel gets to enjoy their complimentary evening Wine Hour reception. On October 12, 2017, the Kimpton Annual Sale begins and you don’t want to miss the discounted room rates and double stay credits on every reservation.
- Free night at Kimpton Aertson Hotel in Nashville
- The Best Kimpton Wine Hour Story Ever
- Kimpton Journeyman Suite Upgrade
Kimpton Annual Sale starts October 12, 2017
Twice a year, Kimpton offers double stay credits on every reservation. One sale is usually in June and the Kimpton Annual Sale is in October.
You can usually save anywhere from 5%-25% on room reservations and receive double stay credit on every reservation. The double stay credit is key because it only takes 14 stay credits to earn Kimpton Karma Rewards Inner Circle status!
Fast Track to Inner Circle Status
While other hotel loyalty programs are jacking up the number of stays required to reach top-tier status (I’m talking to you World of Hyatt!), Kimpton has kept their requirements at an attainable level for most travelers.
With Kimpton Karma Rewards requiring 14 stays to reach Inner Circle status, during the Kimpton Annual Sale promotion you can earn top-tier status with only 7 stays with double-credits!!!
And, you’ll also earn 2 free nights good at ANY Kimpton Hotel with those 7 stays (14 stay credits) because Kimpton provides their loyalty members with 1 free night every 7 stays.
My Strategy During Kimpton Annual Sale
I’ve already reached Kimpton Karma Rewards Inner Circle status for 2018 through stays I accumulated earlier this year. For example, my first stay was in early January at the Kimpton Palomar in San Diego and Scarlett and I had an awesome weekend in Milwaukee at the Kimpton Journeyman.
So I’m focused on two things…
First, I want to stay at some of the new properties that Kimpton has opened (or is about to) like the Kimpton La Peer in Los Angeles, Kimpton Sawyer in Sacramento, Kimpton Rowan in Palm Springs, and Kimpton Born in Denver.
Second, I am going to focus on properties that are in the Southern California area (and in cities that I’m already traveling to) so that I can minimize travel costs while maximizing Kimpton Annual Sale stay credits. Luckily, there are many to choose from in San Diego, Orange County, Los Angeles, and Wine Country now.
I will be doing as many of these stays in January and February as possible so that they will all count towards renewing my Kimpton Karma Rewards Inner Circle status for 2019.
The Bald Thoughts
I’ll be speaking at the Chicago Seminars on October 21, 2017, about the virtues of Kimpton Karma Rewards and why it is the “best hotel loyalty program that you’ve never heard of.” Join me as I share even more strategies to maximize their loyalty program and get spoiled as much as I do. The Kimpton Annual Sale is only for a few days, so start researching which Kimpton Hotels you want to stay at by looking at the Kimpton Hotels website today. Hopefully, I will see you in Chicago or at another Kimpton in the near future!
