If you’ve stayed at a Kimpton hotel or dined in one of our restaurants, you’ve probably noticed we’re not your everyday company. We offer goldfish to keep guests company in their rooms, hand out complimentary glasses of wine in our lobbies every evening, and stock our guestroom closets with leopard-print robes. We love caring for our guests, and thrive on creating a warm, playful environment for them, as well as our employees. And we’re honored to share that Kimpton has just been recognized as one of FORTUNE Magazine’s 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2013!
Our fun and playful perks make the Kimpton experience special – but they wouldn’t be possible without our employees. Our employees are the heart and soul of Kimpton, and they thrive on showing genuine acts of kindness to each other and our guests. We call these acts “Kimpton Moments” and they’ve included such gestures as bringing a sick guest homemade chicken soup and paying for a cab when a guest lost his wallet. The list goes on.
It’s things like Kimpton Moments that captured the attention of FORTUNE and put us right up there next to other iconic brands through the most comprehensive survey in America. This year our ranking is 28 and marks the fourth time we’ve made the list.
This honor is a reflection of the fun, caring and sometimes downright playful environment our employees have created for each other and our guests. We hope you’ll get to experience it for yourself soon by coming to stay or dine with us. We’ll make sure there’s a leopard-print robe waiting for you.
Happy travels and wishing you the best in 2013!
