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 Mason & Rook Hotel
    Washington, DC
    4.5-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 758 reviewsTripAdvisor (758)
    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.

    The Kimpton Donovan
    Washington, DC
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1970 reviewsTripAdvisor (1970)

    Perched just off Thomas Circle in downtown D.C., The Kimpton Donovan earns major props from recent guests for its modern decor, rooftop pool and mouthwatering Asian fusion cuisine offered at the in-house restaurant, Zentan. But those aren't the only reasons to stay here; recent guests were also wowed by the Kimpton Donovan's central location, situated within walking distance of the White House and the National Mall. Also praised were the hotel's swanky lobby and sleek accommodations, which feature LCD flat-screen TVs and minibars stocked with Dean & DeLuca gourmet goods. The only downside, according to some guests, was that the property's rooms felt smaller than other D.C. accommodations. For additional space, previous guests suggest springing for a suite. But wherever you decide to bed down, you can rest assured that if you participate in the Kimpton Karma loyalty program, you can accrue or receive freebies at this Kimpton brand outpost.

For delectable eats, head to the Dirty Habit, a cocktail lounge with Asian-influenced small plates. If you participate in the IHG Rewards Club program, you can receive perks and extras by choosing to stay here.

    Kimpton Hotel Madera
    Washington, DC
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1360 reviewsTripAdvisor (1360)

    Sitting within walking distance of bustling Dupont Circle, Hotel Madera is a member of the Kimpton brand, and it's a convenient home base for city exploration with the brand's signature flair. The hotel's 82 guest rooms are dressed in bright patterns accented by warm brown hues and come equipped with iHome docking stations, flat-panel TVs and sofas. The property also supplies all the necessities for a yoga workout and a variety of amenities for pets. Despite all its offerings, recent guests felt that the experiences could have been better; some guests cite disappointing encounters with staff members, while others say that if it weren't for the trendy decor, the Kimpton Hotel Madera would lack personality. On the other hand, the hotel's restaurant, Firefly, is a favorite between locals and travelers alike, serving American comfort food in a warm, inviting ambiance.
