Yesterday was Cyber Monday and today is Giving Tuesday, which certainly goes hand in hand with Kimpton’s promotion where you can save 20% on bookings made today December 2, 2014 for stays through March 1, 2015. For each reservation night made during this sale Kimpton will also donate $5 to the Trevor Project. Plus if you utter Kimpton’s new secret social password upon check-in you’ll get a surprise from the hotel.
The Kimpton secret social password is “Warm Woolen Mittens”, and you can use it through March 4, 2015. The surprise gift varies but can be quite nice, such as free drinks or free parking. The only problem is that I don’t always remember to mention the secret password when checking in to a Kimpton!
The Trevor Project that Kimpton has partnered with offers crisis intervention and suicide prevention for LGBTQ teens youth which is especially needed for some around the holidays. Click here for more information on the Trevor Project.
I really like that Kimpton has published a list of participating properties, so you don’t spin your wheels looking for hotels that qualify.
Here’s a booking link, which has the list of participating hotels on the same page.
Use promotional code GIVE when booking.
There are blackout dates and the rates are prepaid and nonrefundable, but doing a test with the Hotel La Jolla in San Diego for a random date of Saturday February 21, 2015 there was availability.
Trying three more properties and dates I found availability for the promotion each time, which is good since some previous sales I’ve struggled to find a property and date where the promotion works.
Update: Just as I sent this to press I received an email that Kimpton is also offering last minute sales for their Karma Rewards members.
Here’s a booking link.
Rates are good for stays for the next 7 days for spontaneous trips or last-minute oops-I-forgot bookings.
