Kimpton has several remarkable acts of hospitality:

The story is that Kimpton’s founder Bill Kimpton would have a daily fireside chat with his sales team to discuss all things Kimpton. As a way to honour this tradition (or it’s just a post-rationalisation of the perk – which either way doesn’t really matter), Kimpton his still hosting a daily Social Hour between 17h00 and 18h00.

In Kimpton Fitzroy’s case, it is a daily gathering on the 1st floor of the hotel with a glass of Champagne and someone from the team sharing the ideas and thoughts of the Kimpton brand.
