Kimpton Hotels is my favorite hotel chain that I rarely write about. I think of Kimptons as the cool kid on the block that W Hotels try to emulate.
Kimpton Hotels are popular with guests. Check TripAdvisor.com and today there are 4 Kimpton Hotels in the top 7 ranked hotels for Washington, D.C.
I have been meaning to write a post on the Hotel Palomar DC for the past couple weeks and hopefully I’ll get to that piece in coming days.

Kimpton’s Evening Wine Hour
Kimpton Hotels offer a hosted evening wine hour. This is a convenient way to bring people together and socialize, or just hang out in the lobby drinking free wine.
Last May I met some Kimpton marketing people who encouraged me to bring my entire entourage to San Francisco for a stay at a Kimpton Hotel. I can just imagine arriving with four cat carriers, a bird cage and a rat cage. They would have to upgrade me to a suite to hold my crew. I’d love to bring a couple of my cats to a Kimpton Hotel, but they don’t like riding in the car.
You can bring your pets for no extra fee or deposit to a Kimpton Hotel. The hotel offers pet amenities. If you don’t have a pet, some hotels have resident fish they will place in your room for your stay. Check out their hosPETality webpage.
