I love being a Kimpton Karma Inner Circle member for all the benefits I receive.  It is so fun to explore their properties because they’re not cookie cutter, like so many other brands.  One of my favorite benefits is being able to stay a night for free whenever a new property opens.  The family and I will be staying at the Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa in Palm Beach, Florida soon using this benefit.  Have you booked your free night?

The Tideline is the island’s only beachfront boutique hotel and located 2842 South Ocean Blvd, Palm Beach, Florida 33480.  It was rated as one of the best new hotels of 2015 by Conde Nast Traveler!

When you stay during the new hotel free night promotion, the on-site restaurant provides a $50 dining credit.  This perk definitely makes me want to sample the menu at the on-site restaurants when I stay with Kimpton.  It will be a fun family dinner.  I booked my reservation using OpenTable to earn the points, and we were still treated to all the normal benefits!

Inner Circle members also receive a Chef’s Taste whenever they stay with Kimpton and eat at the hotel’s restaurant.

How to stay at the Kimpton Tideline 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.  I’m looking forward to our upcoming Florida trip for our free night at The Kimpton Tideline, where we’ll also be staying on a paid night at the Kimpton EPIC in Miami.

The Kimpton Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa free night benefit is available through November 30, 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!

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 Kimpton Schofield in Cleveland, OH.

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.
