guest, each employee instinctively portrays the five elements of Kimpton, “Care, comfort, style, flavor
and fun.” We take the time to train our front desk staff not to make assumptions but instead to offer choices, even in small personal ways.”

are nine hotels, plus another in nearby San Jose. Other cities with two or more Kimpton’s include
Chicago (3), Boston/Cambridge (3), Dallas (2), New York City (2), Portland, OR (2), Seattle (3), and Washington, DC, which is second only to San Francisco with seven hotels.
