Kimpton is just an all around cool hotel program. Their hotels I have stayed at are cool, modern (yet still sometimes historic), and just plain sexy. I haven’t stay at them as often as I would like in recent years, but I still like to keep tabs on how to score some extra freebies with them in the event a stay pops up.

Since they are such a cool hotel program, they even have a secret password that unlocks freebies. If you say the current password at check-in you get free stuff! Who knew that secret handshakes or passwords still work?

Appropriately enough given the blizzard currently hitting millions, the winter¬†Kimpton secret password is “Baby, it’s cold outside”.

Utter those magic words at check-in at a Kimpton property and you will get a surprise from the hotel that can range from free parking, cookies or snacks, free movie, free drinks, food/beverage credit, or even a suite upgrade if you are super lucky. As an example, Angelina Travels recently uttered the magic words on a trip to the newly opened Hotel Van Zandt in Austin and was given $15 bar credit.

Of course there is no guarantee that you will love what the hotel gives you, but it is a freebie just for saying a “secret phrase”, so you can’t really go wrong with trying it out to see what you get!

This Kimpton secret password will work until March 2, 2016 – let me know what it gets you if you are lucky enough to use it!


  1. Hey there. I love Kimptons! They are so individual, tasteful and cool. I recently stayed at the new Taconic in Manchester, Vermont…uttered the magic words and my husbnad and I enjoyed a hot toddy made with maple syrup. Delicious! Thanks Taconic. What a beautiful new hotel.

  2. I used the phrase for February and originally was going to get a free bottle of wine. I was not in my room when it was delivered so I. Got a free breakfast at Jackson 20 located in the hotel Monaco in Old Town Alexandria. Looking for the phrase for March if there is one, planning another trip to a Kimpton
