Kimpton Hotels Annual Sale Oct 18-22 happening

Kimpton Hotels Annual Sale is currently happening for the next few days with 30% off Best Flexible Rate for stays through February 28, 2019 at most properties. The Annual Sale rate is at least 10% lower than prepaid Advance Purchase rates and have the benefit of a 7-day before arrival free cancellation.

Members also receive 20 elite points per $1 for bookings made using the Annual Sale rate. This only matters if you are seeking status through points. Redeemable points earning is the normal 10 points per $1 rate.

One of the advantages of this sale is it applies to higher level room categories, so you can even book a suite.

Sample Sale Prices

Kimpton Topaz Hotel, Dupont Circle Washington D.C.

This hotel charges an additional mandatory Guest Services Fee $26.43 after tax for each night. This fee includes upgraded wi-fi, local and domestic long distance calls, and car service within a mile of the hotel for 2 hours each morning.
Wow. I did not know Kimpton had mandatory service fees at many of their hotels. They are not a brand I am generally interested in due to their typically high room rates. Most Kimpton Hotels I visit is only for a drink at the bar.
Seems I like would be paying $26.43 for other guests to use a car service since that is not something I typically would use at a hotel.

City tax 6% is the only add on charge to the room rate at Kimpton Amsterdam. This is the only hotel that really interested me, but the Annual Sale rate is not available for the dates I might be in Amsterdam.
