Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants highlight unique offering for millennial market

According to the latest research and statistics, the millennial generation Y (born between 1980-1999) have very different travelling wishes compared to previous generations1. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, the leading collection of boutique hotels in the USA, has long been inspired by the digital sophistication, social responsibility and instantaneous nature of these millennial guests and as such has highlighted some of their authentic offerings that indulge the whims of the “Y-traveller.”

Millennials are social but insular, willing to pay for what they want, but put less value on traditional amenities and require speedy and efficient service. Additionally, millennials have high expectations regarding entertainment technology and location is paramount as they look to be near music venues, great shopping and locally-loved restaurants.

From innovative technology such as the retina scan entry key for the Cloud Nine Suite at Kimpton’s Nine Zero Hotel in Boston, to the “Business Bar” at The Eventi Hotel in New York that caters to busy technophiles by providing everything they could want including an Instagram printer, these offerings are ideal for the millennial traveller. Additionally, Kimpton is also socially responsible and their hotels are certified by the globally recognized Green Key Eco-Rating Program. With their offering of spa services, wellness minded programs and amenities, pet-friendly policy and locally loved restaurants and bars available across the U.S., there is little that Kimpton cannot offer the millennial traveller.
