In 1981, Bill Kimpton rolled out the group's first hotel in San Francisco. Since then, the company has built a chain of leading boutique properties, including more than 60 stylish hotels in 35 cities; however in 2014, the InterContinental Hotels Group acquired the Kimpton brand. Members of the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand are best described as urban and trendy, with fanciful decor and unique amenities, such as complimentary nightly wine hours and a 24-hour yoga TV channel. These accommodations also tout a brand-wide pet-friendly policy, catering to both urbanites and their four-legged travel companions, with pet packages and amenities that include gourmet pet treats, pet massages and more. Kimpton hotels also include the Palomar and Monaco styles; both welcome guests with trendy and stylish rooms and include whimsical decor and signature bath amenities. Plus, frequent Kimpton guests who participate in the IHG Rewards Club program can take advantage of free night credits and complimentary perks like minibar credits and room upgrades. Several Kimpton properties appear on our Best Hotels in the USA ranking list; those properties are listed below.

    Kimpton EPIC Hotel
    Miami, FL
    #1 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3715 reviewsTripAdvisor (3715)
    Free WiFi

    With a name like EPIC, this hotel has a lot to live up to. So what's the final verdict on this property? By all visitor accounts, it's very good. Guests love the hotel's trendy, fun atmosphere and give two thumbs way up for customer service. Accommodations here are not as funky as those found in other hotels that are part of the Kimpton brand, and that's because the decor is simply the hotel's surroundings; massive floor-to-ceiling windows and private balconies offer fantastic views of Biscayne Bay, the Atlantic Ocean and the Miami skyline. Guest rooms also feature honor bars stocked with treats and drinks, plus 55-inch Samsung smart TVs that can be controlled with your iPhone. Though you may be tempted to spend all your time in your room, recent travelers highly recommend visiting the two pools on the 16th floor pool terrace and the in-house Area 31 restaurant. However, some caution that the $29 daily amenity fee feels a bit pricey. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you'll have access to additional benefits like complimentary Wi-Fi access.

    This Kimpton brand property in downtown Portland gets high praise for its complimentary wine reception and its terrific restaurant, Red Star Tavern.

According to previous guests, fans of the Hotel Monaco style will enjoy a stay in the Chicago version, particularly because of the hotel's excellent customer service. IHG Rewards Club members will be able to get additional perks, like free Wi-Fi access, and can earn and redeem night credits here. But this property has a few unique characteristics worth noting. First, there are the in-room spa treatments. And let's not forget the flavorful Midwestern cuisine served at Fisk & Co., which travelers enjoy.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1765 reviewsTripAdvisor (1765)

    When you book a stay at the Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel, you can anticipate a picturesque view of Portland's Willamette River. And this hotel's amenities are pretty nice too: Flat-screen LCD TVs, plush bathrobes and 24-hour room service, to name just a few. While many hotels in the Kimpton brand attract trendier travelers with their bright, quirky decor, RiverPlace takes a different approach. Guest rooms are adorned in muted hues and earth-toned tiling, adopting a more naturalistic, cozy feel. Some other draws, according to recent visitors, are the hotel's on-site restaurant and its excellent location. However, travelers caution that the attention to detail could stand to improve and that they expected more at a property of this caliber. Plus, members of the Kimpton Karma rewards program can earn and redeem points at this property.

    The Kimpton Gray Hotel is located in downtown Chicago's Financial District, but it attracts more than just business travelers.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 745 reviewsTripAdvisor (745)
    Free WiFi

    Frequently described by guests as "trendy," the Kimpton Mason & Rook sits in Washington, D.C.'s, 14th Street neighborhood, just minutes from the equally hip Logan Circle. Formerly the Hotel Helix, this Kimpton outpost underwent renovations before taking on its new identity, and recent guests appreciated the updated interiors. Rooms feature "sophisticated, residential design" (retro vinyls, dark woods, and worn leathers) and are equipped with 65-inch flat-screen TVs, Bluetooth speakers, 400-thread-count Frette linens and oversized glass enclosed showers (a highlight for recent lodgers). The hotel's seasonal rooftop pool and bar was another favorite feature for guests, who loved its city views and inventive cocktails. Though you're surrounded by some of the city's best restaurants, you should consider grabbing a bite at the on-site Radiator restaurant, which earned praise from past guests for its small plates and outdoor patio seating. True to the Kimpton brand, this hotel also offers a complimentary wine reception every evening, as well as free morning coffee and tea. You'll also find a 24-hour fitness center on-site, and bikes for exploring the city (use of which is covered in the property's daily $22.99 "facilities fee," which also includes free Wi-Fi). If you're a IHG Rewards Club member, you can use or accrue points and perks here.

After an invigorating workout, head to the third-floor outdoor pool and enjoy a cocktail with a side of downtown views.
