The Kimpton group offers more than 60 boutique hotels across the USA, along with some 70 chef-driven restaurants and bars. The hotels are famous for their hosted (and complimentary!) evening Wine Hour, to which guests are invited every day from 5-6pm, “rain or shine, East or West, bear or bull market”.
