Twice a year Kimpton Hotels offers a special promotion that is available to anyone that is staying at a Kimpton property. To participate in the Kimpton Summer Password promotion, all you need to do is say the secret password at check-in, then wait for the awesome people at Kimpton to surprise and delight you with some incredible goodies.

What is the Kimpton Summer Password?

The Kimpton Summer Password for 2018 is “out of office”. Super simple and yet so dreamy!

You can use the Kimpton social password throughout the summer until September 3, 2018. Just remember to say secret password when checking in at the front desk. Ok, even I have forgotten to say it when checking it, so don’t worry about it if you forget as well. Just stop back by the front desk and tell them the Kimpton summer password and they’ll still hook you up with something awesome.

Do I need status to use the Kimpton Summer Password?

In the world of travel, the more status you have the better the goodies you will receive. And so many hotels treat the occasional guest like they’re lucky to be staying with them… and not the other way around. Hotels should consider themselves lucky that we’re spending our hard-earned money at their property!

With the Kimpton Summer Password, whether this is your first stay, your 10th, or you’re a top-tier Inner Circle Member like me, everyone can use the secret password to receive something awesome.

What kind of goodies will I get?

The goodies from the Kimpton Summer Password will vary. One of the things I like is that every Kimpton Hotel will treat the Kimpton secret password promotion differently.

At the Kimpton Everly Hotel in Hollywood, California, we received free valet parking. If you’ve ever been to Los Angeles, you know that parking can be crazy expensive. This saved us around $40 for the night.

At the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, they offered a grab bag of wrapped goodies that you can select from. When we unwrapped it, the gift was basically just a trinket that we eventually threw away, but it was still exciting to pick a little gift.

And some Kimpton Hotels give you a choice of a free drink at the bar or a dining credit to use during your stay.

Although Kimpton is now part of the IHG family, only Kimpton Hotels participate in the Kimpton Summer Password promotion. Every hotel within the Kimpton family will give you something cool when you use the Kimpton secret password while checking in.

This summer, I’ll be staying at these Kimpton Hotels:

The Bald Thoughts

Extra goodies for no reason other than it is fun is one of the reasons why I love Kimpton Hotels. Every property is unique and not some cookie-cutter hotel, which makes you want to visit every Kimpton to experience the little touches that set them apart.

The Kimpton Summer Password is only here for a short time, so make sure you book your reservations now and use the Kimpton secret password “out of office” when checking in.


  1. Kimpton Allegro, in Chicago around Memorial Day. Got a couple $10 off dining or bar coupons. Made the difference for us. Instead of seeking out a neighborhood place, we visited “312” in the hotel for breakfast and it was great. Win-win.

    • How did you like the Allegro? I haven’t stayed there yet. Would def like to. Kimpton is smart to entice you with those discounts. Even with a lower price point, I’m sure they still made money and better controlled the experience to ensure it was a positive vacation for you.
