ADVERTORIAL • August 2019

Laid-back luxury at six US boutique hotels

Heading to one of the USA’s major cities? From the east coast to west coast, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has you covered with upscale design, home-comforts and personal touches aplenty

01 Seattle

Sleeping in Seattle

You won’t have trouble nodding off in Seattle’s award winning Kimpton Hotel Monaco – guest rooms are capacious, featuring luxurious Frette bed linen and gorgeous in-room spa services. Within strolling distance of the beloved Pike Place Market and an atmospheric waterfront, this is (and no wonder) TripAdvisor’s top-rated Seattle hotel for 2019. Bikes are available for guests to explore the neighbourhood, before peddling back in time to enjoy one of Kimpton’s best perks – a nightly wine hour. Don’t leave without quaffing a cocktail at in-house bar Outlier, which with a retractable roof and spacious patio stays sun-splashed in the summer, while fire pits and outdoor heaters mean it’s cosy during the winter. 

02 Hollywood

The Hills

The Kimpton Everly Hotel in Hollywood is one of the city’s more recent arrivals, overlooking the twinkling LA skyline (and that world-famous sign). Glorious vistas aside, each room is home to dreamy Casper mattresses. Guests can even limber up with Kimpton’s complimentary yoga mats. The rooftop pool is a knock-out, sitting beside an outdoor lounge hosting everything from special film screenings to live music performances. Jump on a custom-designed PUBLIC bike to explore nearby Griffith Park, before rehydrating at Ever Bar, where live music pulls in the locals three times a week. Hipster-hangout Jane Q is the place to recover the following day.

03 Chicago

Wind down

Where better to stay in America’s Windy City than the very heart of its Theatre District? Kimpton Hotel Allegro occupies a prime downtown spot, within walking distance of Restaurant Row and Millennium Park. Built in 1926, the hotel’s glam decor is a mix of retro (Art Deco) and cosmopolitan – and nowhere more so than the elegant Bar Allegro, where classic cocktails meet a contemporary twist. Then, tuck into a big bowl of pappardelle at the Italian mainstay, 312 Chicago. After a lively night out, Kimpton’s complimentary tea or coffee service will ease you into the morning.

04 Washington

A capital visit

Know Washington DC? Then you’ll know that the bustling Dupont Circle neighbourhood is the place to stay. Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC is right in the middle of the action, a short stroll from boutiques, bars and one of the area’s best farmers’ markets. The hotel’s outdoor heated pool is a prime warm-weather hotspot, complete with sundeck, cabanas, and lounge chairs – but for chilly days, the fire-lit grand living room is the best place to hunker down, before tucking into a locally-sourced supper at Italian eatery, Urbana.

05 Miami

Magic moment

There’s nowhere quite like South Beach, Miami. America’s Magic City is famed for its nightlife – and colourfully bedecked Kimpton Surfcomber Miami South Beach is in the heart of it. Oceanfront, with a palm-tree-lined pool, the Art Deco Surfcomber is all about the good times; and that’s where the hotel’s ‘Daylife’ concept comes in. With ample beach games, bike tours, ice-cream sundaes and craft-cocktail classes, there are hours of fun to be had in the Florida sun. Far from coming alive at night, South Beach is a 24-hour party.

06 New York

At the core

Explore the Big Apple from Kimpton Hotel Eventi. Surrounded by world-class galleries and eateries, hang loose in the stylish living-room-style lobby – the hotel occupies an entire block, so you’ll have more than enough space. Overlooking electric Sixth Avenue, The Veranda’s open-air views of the Empire State Building make it the perfect location for an event. The Big Screen Plaza located at the hotel is an expansive indoor/outdoor multi-level public space with a multimedia art screen. Where else can you catch animated film screenings, sports coverage and Fashion Week events? American-Italian L’Amico restaurant and The Vine lounge will ensure you don’t leave hungry (or thirsty).
