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 Seafire Resort + Spa
    Seven Mile Beach
    #1 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 877 reviewsTripAdvisor (877)
    Free WiFi

    Sitting pretty on Grand Cayman's Seven Mile Beach, the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa earns high praise from past guests for its luxurious accommodations and attentive staff – recent lodgers say everyone treated them like royalty. Rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, private balconies, Frette linens and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Past visitors were also impressed with the pool and beach areas – in fact, some reviewers who weren't even guests at this Kimpton suggested renting a pool cabana for the day to enjoy the services and relaxing atmosphere. The resort's secluded stretch of sand on the largest of the Cayman Islands also received praise from travelers, who appreciated access to the resort's water sports equipment, including kayaks, paddleboards, floating rafts and more. For a break from the sun, guests can reserve a treatment at the 8,500-square-foot spa, break a sweat in the fitness center or grab a bite at the resort's three eateries. What's more, families will appreciate Camp Seafire, a kids club for children ages 4 to 12. Though past guests heap praise on the hotel staff, some grumbled about the daily resort fee, which costs $70 per day. However, if you're a member of the IHG Rewards Club, you can offset costs by cashing in points for a stay here.

    Kimpton La Peer Hotel
    West Hollywood, CA
    #2 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 101 reviewsTripAdvisor (101)
    Free WiFi

    Set in Los Angeles' trendy West Hollywood neighborhood, the Kimpton La Peer Hotel opened in January 2018. The hotel's 105 rooms and suites feature cool, neutral tones of white, cream and gray with wooden accents. In-room amenities include minibars, free Wi-Fi access (for IHG Rewards Club members) and yoga mats, and select accommodations feature balconies, terraces or soaking tubs. Those interested in a bit more space (and additional amenities) should spring for a suite: Suites offer separate living areas and bedrooms, plus Nespresso machines, hardwood floors and sofa beds. Recent guests were particularly impressed with the modern, hip vibe of the accommodations and the hotel as a whole. The staff members received high praise from past travelers as well. Outside the rooms, visitors will find a heated outdoor pool and a fitness center. Plus, true to the Kimpton brand, the hotel welcomes pets for no additional fee. This Kimpton also offers unique experiences like privately drawn spa-inspired baths and in-room cocktail service. The hotel's dining option, Viale dei Romani, dishes out creative Italian meals. The only downside a few travelers noted was that a stay here is pricey. Part of the InterContinental Hotels Group, this property allows IHG Rewards Club members to rack up or redeem points for stays.

    Free WiFi

    Striking the right balance of modernity and comfort, the Kimpton Hotel Palomar Philadelphia boasts luxurious amenities, spacious rooms and chic decor. Recent visitors adore the stylish accommodations: rooms are appointed with eye-catching green and purple accents. They also feature recycled glass tile bathrooms equipped with Luxury Atelier Bloem bath products, as well as signature Kimpton amenities like ultra-soft Frette linens and large flat-screen TVs. The hotel's cozy restaurant, Square 1682, also earns high praise for its inventive dishes. While visitors appreciated the cuisine, they weren't as pleased with the expensive valet parking fees at this Kimpton. Still, previous lodgers agree that the property's best asset is its phenomenal urban location within walking distance of Rittenhouse Square. And thanks to the IHG Rewards Club program, you'll receive extra perks, such as complimentary Wi-Fi access and upgrades, for choosing to stay here.

    Set in the heart of Philadelphia's vibrant historic district, the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Philadelphia grants guests easy access to top attractions like Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell.

The property's restaurant, the Red Owl Tavern, and the Stratus Rooftop Lounge earn rave reviews from previous visitors as well. Meanwhile, IHG Rewards Club members can earn various perks and points by choosing to stay here. Just keep in mind that many of the hotel's amenities, especially the valet parking, include hefty fees.

    Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland

    #6 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3434 reviewsTripAdvisor (3434)

    This Kimpton brand property in downtown Portland gets high praise for its complimentary wine reception and its terrific restaurant, Red Star Tavern. The decor is vibrant, and the in-room amenities, from the luxury bath products to the animal print robes to the flat-screen TVs, were top-notch according to recent guests. Duck out of your digs to spend time at the 24-hour business center and the on-site fitness center, or navigate Portland on your complimentary bicycle. You can also bring your pooch for a stay at this hotel (and pamper him with free pet-friendly amenities). What's more, IGH Rewards Club members are eligible for added perks, including free Wi-Fi access. If you aren't a member, though, you may prefer to settle for the amenity fee, which includes internet access as well as unlimited local and long distance calls.

    Kimpton EPIC Hotel
    Miami, FL
    #7 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 3724 reviewsTripAdvisor (3724)
    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.

    #8 in Best Kimpton Hotels
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 345 reviewsTripAdvisor (345)
    Free WiFi

    Stay at the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel and you'll enjoy stellar service and a bevy of top-notch amenities, according to former guests. Centrally located in Palm Springs, California, by the Palm Springs Art Museum, this IHG Hotels outpost offers an outdoor pool, a fitness center, two Mediterranean-inspired restaurants and two bars, including the city's only poolside rooftop option. Desert-chic decor is on display throughout the property, from the lobby bar to the pool deck to the 153 guest rooms and suites. Each modern accommodation boasts wooden furnishings, one or more large windows with city or San Jacinto Mountain vistas and a white, gray and blue color palette. Plus, you'll find standard Kimpton room amenities like yoga mats and stocked minibars, as well as Atelier Bloem toiletries, bathrobes and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. Keep in mind, a $35 daily resort fee that covers additional perks, such as in-room Wi-Fi access, valet parking, airport transfers and car service in the downtown area, applies. Some previous visitors bemoaned this extra charge, though most felt the hotel's positives outweighed this drawback. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can help offset the resort fee by paying for your room with accrued points.

    Kimpton RiverPlace Hotel

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1872 reviewsTripAdvisor (1872)

    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, King Tide Fish & Shell, 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 IHG Rewards Club program can earn and redeem points at this property.

    The Kimpton Hotel Monaco Baltimore – just a few blocks from the Inner Harbor – makes an excellent choice for sightseers. Its wide array of amenities (from spacious rooms with high ceilings to in-room spa treatments) receive high praise from recent guests. Another crowd pleaser: The superb fare served at B&O American Brasserie. And its fanciful decor earns the Monaco such superlatives as "outstanding" and "stunning." The spacious accommodations, appointed with vibrant blue, gold and red colors, rich fabrics and sumptuous bedding, are also worth noting, as are the deluxe amenities like Frette linens, gourmet honor bars and spacious work desks. Plus, guests who participate in the Kimpton Karma rewards program can't stop raving about the free perks for choosing to stay here, such as complimentary minibar credits.

    The Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix earned rave reviews from previous guests not only for its central location in Arizona's capital, but also for its trendy atmosphere and friendly staff members. In addition, the hotel routinely receives praise for its spacious digs: Rooms are dressed in a contemporary decor (think bold patterns and bright colors) with glass walk-in showers and beds draped in Italian Frette linens. IHG Rewards Club members also enjoy free Wi-Fi access in their rooms and the opportunity to raid the minibar with a complimentary $10 credit. The compliments don't end with the accommodations: Lodgers are also quick to commend the hotel's diverse amenities, like the complimentary bikes, the Kimpton brand's signature in-room yoga mats and the complimentary use of EOS Fitness (located adjacent to the hotel). After an invigorating workout, head to the third-floor outdoor pool and enjoy a cocktail with a side of downtown views.

    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 605 reviewsTripAdvisor (605)

    The Kimpton Gray Hotel is located in downtown Chicago's Financial District, but it attracts more than just business travelers. With Vol. 39, a law library-inspired bar, and Boleo, a rooftop lounge with Latin American street food, it's a popular hot spot for tourists and locals alike. Plus, as a member of the Kimpton family, it offers all of the brand's signature amenities, like complimentary wine receptions, free bike rentals and the Forgot It, We've Got It amenities program. Taking after its name, accommodations are decorated in a soothing gray color palette, with powder blue accents, lace-inspired carpets and unconventional artwork. For a truly lavish stay, book the Presidential Suite, which at 908 square feet houses a living room with a custom wet bar, spa-like bathrooms and two signature bathrobes that are free to keep. Recent guests raved about the "wonderful" decor, "friendly" staff and "beautiful" rooftop eatery, as well as the great location, which is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike, though others pointed out that being in the heart of the city does come with noise. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can earn or redeem points when staying here.

    Flaunting the signature quirky Kimpton style, the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Pittsburgh receives high marks for everything from the attentive staff and comfortable beds to the whimsical decor and convenient location. The property is situated downtown, within walking distance of top Steel City sights like the Senator John Heinz History Center, the Andy Warhol Museum and PNC Park. Guests can use one of the hotel's complimentary bikes to explore the city or stick around to enjoy its on-site amenities, which include a fitness center, in-room spa services and evening wine receptions. Those looking for a bite to eat won't have to stray far: The Commoner dishes out classic American cuisine, while the Biergarten serves traditional Bavarian bites (think giant soft pretzels and bratwursts) alongside beers.

    Class and comfort have a permanent home at the Kimpton Grand Hotel Minneapolis. Recent guests commend the hotel's historic exterior and its contrast to the modern furnishings inside. Rooms are luxurious (boasting wood and leather furnishings and amenities like snack bars and Atelier Bloem bath products), while the fitness center is extensive and even houses an indoor six-lane lap pool. After working up a sweat, you can head to the on-site LifeSpa for a massage or a facial. And to quench your thirst, you can grab a refreshing cocktail and dinner at The SIX15 Room. You'll find this hotel in downtown Minneapolis, less than a mile from the Guthrie Theater. And because it falls under the IHG brand umbrella, members of the IHG Rewards Club loyalty program can use their points for perks here.
