Most of the time I try to book my hotel rooms in advance, one reason being that the rates are generally lower. But plans change, and sometimes a spontaneous trip calls for a booking within just a few days.  Kimpton offers last minute deals for stays in the next 7 days at select properties. These are bookable by their InTouch members, and if you aren’t a member yet you can sign up for their loyalty program to access the deals.

The rates are around 15-20% off, with some good deals to be had. For example, Kimpton’s 70 Park Avenue property in New York usually hovers around the $250 per night mark. The advance purchase rate is $231 for Saturday April 19, but through Kimpton’s last minute deals link the price drops down to $199.

After logging in and following the booking link attached to the chosen hotel, a calendar shows pricing per night.

Choosing a night takes you directly to the booking page, which requires pre-payment. Note that the rates are nonrefundable.
