Some of the best packages this holiday season can’t be found under a Christmas tree, they’re right here at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. From discounted shopping in Dallas to a New Year’s Eve masquerade in Aspen, we’ve got a whole slew of winter packages and events that are sure to warm the cockles of your heart … and we’re not even quite sure what cockles are.
San Diego: Down in sunny SoCal at the Hotel La Jolla you can choose your mindset with the Naughty or Nice package. Those opting for “naughty” will be greeted on arrival with a shot of Fireball whiskey, and that’s just to get you warmed up for an in-room temptation intimacy kit and movie of your choice (no questions asked, wink wink). It’s topped off by a $25 gift certificate to a nearby upscale shopping center. Feeling nice? You’ll be welcomed with hot chocolate, an in-room movie (rated PG to R) and one of those $25 vouchers. Plus you can get all wholesome and crafty with a make-it-yourself gingerbread house kit. Available through Jan. 11; use the code COAL for the “naughty” package and NICE for the “nice” offering.
Aspen: You’ll want to dress to impress for the Sky Hotel’s New Year’s Eve Masquerade Party at 39 Degrees Lounge (and no, ski goggles don’t count as a mask). You and your posse can roll rock-star style with VIP reserved seating that includes dinner, party favors and more. This event is for ages 21 and up.
New York City: Hey, it’s the town that never sleeps, right? Add in New Year’s Eve and boy, you’ll really be able to appreciate Eventi Hotel’s You Can Sleep in 2014 package. You’ll get a bottle of Champagne, a special in-room Nightcap Bar and 5-hour Energy drinks to keep the party rolling. And what’s a party without pizza? So we’ll have some complimentary pizza delivery upon request, too. Come 2014, don’t even bother to get out of bed — we’ll serve you breakfast in bed, complete with Bloody Marys. Use the code PNYE.
New York City: Do some holiday shopping in style with 70 park avenue’s Power Shopper package. We’ll provide door-to-door car service to some of Manhattan’s best stores and boutiques, then bring you down from your shopping frenzy with a 30-minute stretching session followed by a couple of cocktails at the hotel’s Silverleaf Coffee & Tea. Available through the end of December.
Los Angeles: The Hotel Wilshire and Hotel Palomar Los Angeles–Westwood are Your Home for the Holidays, wherever you may live.

Chicago: A little hair of the dog will help soften the light of day on Jan. 1. The Hotel Allegro’s Recovery Brunch will be served in the Living Room Lobby from 9am to noon on New Year’s Day, featuring pizza and a Bloody Mary bar complete with all the fixings.
Chicago: Through Dec. 24, our three Chicago Loop properties — the Hotel Allegro, Hotel Monaco and Hotel Burnham — will be offering rates up to 20 percent off. It’s the perfect excuse to experience the 18th annual Christkindlmarket Chicago, located just steps away in Daley Plaza. This open-air market is inspired by the traditional holiday markets in Germany, and features plenty of food, entertainment and shopping.
Chicago: Need more shopping therapy in the Windy City? You can also Shop and Shine on Monaco’s Dime.

Minneapolis: You’re going to want to keep warm in the Twin Cities this month and the Holidazzle Delight package at The Grand Hotel will definitely do the trick.

There also will be hot beverages served in the afternoon, along with our traditional evening wine hour. Through Dec. 22; use code DAZZLE.
Dallas: They say everything is bigger in Texas and the Palomar Dallas drives the point home with its huge Golden Shopping Package. You’ll be rolling in Big D with perks like a $50 gift certificate to the NorthPark shopping center, free transportation to NorthPark (or a valet parking pass if you’re doing your own driving), a $30 dining credit at the hotel’s Central 214 restaurant (or for in-room dining), and a Palomar Dallas tote bag for all your goodies.
