Quickly Earn Top Tier Kimpton Status and Two Free Nights in Just Seven Stays?!

A very intriguing and rewarding program with which I have virtually no personal experience is the Kimpton Inner Circle program. I’ve stayed at a couple of really swanky Kimpton properties, but I haven’t even come close to having any sort of Kimpton status with my very infrequent visits. But, maybe that will change.   Before I get to how that can change much faster than you might guess, let me spend a minute on what the official perks are for…

Hurry Up and Just Pick a Hotel Already…or Don’t.

“Analysis Paralysis” is a real thing, and while it isn’t usually a serious dilemma in the miles and points world since you typically aren’t dealing with very serious subject mater to being with, it can still take up some brain space and prevent you from just making a reservation and moving on with your life. When making a hotel reservation, if your mind is wired to factor in things like points, promotions, and elite status perks such as upgrades or…

Unlock Freebies with Brand New Kimpton Secret Password!

Kimpton Hotels may have been acquired by IHG but they are still just as cool as ever, and I really wish I stayed more regularly in their properties such as their new hotel in Grand Cayman or the Sky Hotel in Aspen. The Kimpton properties that I have stayed at are cool, modern (yet still sometimes historic), and just plain sexy. Not only are their properties cool, but their promotions are pretty fun, too. Promotions like their “secret password”…. New Kimpton Secret Password…

IHG Rewards Gets Better with Kimpton Acquisition

“Unlimited” Bonus Hyatt Points, IHG Promo Update, and More!

There are a few hotel promo updates I wanted to give on this lazy Sunday morning… IHG Into the Nights promo reverts back to the original terms: After some insanity last week where the requirements for the IHG Into the Nights promo changed mid-promo for many people, as they promised, the requirements are now back to their original formats on many accounts, including mine. Now, the tracker isn’t actually tracking my stays appropriately (or at least timely) as I should…

48 Hours in DC and Donovan Hotel Review (Part 1)

…..and what a 48 hours it was!  My mom and I just landed from a very eventful two days in Washington DC.  The primary purpose of the trip was business as I was lucky enough to be going to do some online video segments for the Travel Channel (more on that in a minute), but there was no way we weren’t going to work in some sightseeing as well.  Up until about a week ago I was going solo on…

Some “Important” Points

I had the hardest time deciding what to post about tonight, because there are so many different things going on that I wanted to share, so I decided to just do some little updates on different topics instead of actually having to pick just one.  🙂  Well, and I couldn’t find a five-sided coin to flip… OneWorld MegaDO: I know this has been un-affectionately dubbed “MegaDON’T” by some due to the extremely rapid sell-out and accompanying technical difficulties that occurred…
