It’s no secret that Kimpton is my favorite hotel brand for the special way they treat me and because they have such a unique range of properties.  Shortly after a new property opens, they provide one free night to Inner Circle members.  The Kimpton Schofield in Cleveland is now booking reservations for free nights.

Parker’s Downtown

Normally, the on-site restaurant provides a $50 dining credit when you’re staying using the new hotel free night, but Parker’s is not participating.  Total bummer, because that perk definitely makes me want to sample the menu at the on-site restaurants when I stay with Kimpton.

Inner Circle members also receive a Chef’s Taste whenever they stay with Kimpton and eat at the hotel’s restaurant.  I assume that Parker’s is participating with that benefit, but I haven’t received confirmation.

How to stay at the Kimpton Schofield for free

All Kimpton Inner Circle members are offered a window of time, shortly after a new hotel opens, in which they can stay at the new property for free.  I’ve used this benefit numerous times, including The Goodland near Santa Barbara, The Palladian in Seattle, The Shorebreak in Huntington Beach, and Hotel Tomo in San Francisco.  We’ll be visiting the Tideline near Miami soon as well!

The Kimpton Schofield free night benefit is available through September 21, 2016.

Space is limited for these benefits, so don’t delay in reserving your free room.  Unfortunately, you cannot make these reservations online.  Call the Inner Circle VIP Reservation line at 866-424-7667 to book your room.

I love staying at Kimpton properties… and love it even more when I can do it for free!  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to visit the Kimpton Schofield before the free night period ends.

More free nights coming soon from Kimpton!

Kimpton is also currently offering free nights at The Kimpton Cardinal Hotel in Winston-Salem, NC and the Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa in Palm Beach, FL.

More properties will be opening soon, and their free night should be available about 6 months after opening:

  • Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Chicago, IL
  • Denver, CO
  • Milwaukee, WI
  • Nashville, TN
  • Sacramento, CA
  • Palm Springs, CA
  • Bellevue, WA
  • Tempe, AZ

I’ll definitely be taking advantage of as many of these as I can!

But what if I’m not Kimpton Inner Circle?

Kimpton Inner Circle is earned by having 14 eligible stays or 40 eligible nights within a calendar year.  Kimpton often runs promotions where you receive double credit for stays, so you can become Inner Circle in as little as 7 different stays!

I’ve been able to get 3 free nights after 10 one-night stays with Kimpton’s lucrative loyalty program.  Read here to see how I did it.

When I first became an Inner Circle member a couple of years ago, I requested a status match from the Hilton Diamond status I earned from spending $40,000 on the American Express Hilton Surpass card.  With a status match, you need to stay a specific number of nights before you are eligible for the new hotel free night benefit.

I’ve read reports that Kimpton may not be offering status matches effective January 1, 2016, but it doesn’t hurt to try.  One can’t help but wonder if the elimination of the status match is a result of the merger with IHG?

The Bottom Line

Kimpton has some really great benefits for their Kimpton Karma members.  If you have top-tier Inner Circle status, you have an opportunity to stay at new properties for free shortly after they open.  The Kimpton Schofield free night benefit is available for another 4 weeks, so book your reservation now.  If you aren’t a Kimpton Karma member, I encourage you to check out the program to see if it will work for you.
