Our very pricey Saturday night stay was booked with my IHG Anniversary Free Night, making this a really sweet deal.
While checking in, I gave the Kimpton Secret Password. However, the front desk didn’t know that a new password was out. Regardless, we were given a nice little credit.
Before leaving the check-in area, I was told that there was something else for being an IHG Rewards Club Platinum Elite member.
I was given a Raid The Bar coupon, good for $10 at the bar or at the room mini bar. Before getting to our room, we were already liking the Kimpton culture. It appears that they like to give a little something back to their guests.
Once we arrived at our room, I decided to check out what the options were for the mini bar. I don’t believe that I’ve ever used the mini bar in my life. In fact, we usually ask to have it emptied to use the fridge for the kids’ food and drinks.
$10 might sound like a generous offer but in all honesty, you can’t do much bar raiding for $10 at the Kimpton! The mini bar prices are PRICEY!
I can’t say that I’ve heard of the brand before but the flavor sounded good and the packaging looked nice enough.
The jerky sells for around $5.50- $8.00 per packet so this wasn’t even such a crazy mark-up for a hotel mini bar!
Thanks Kimpton for the IHG Rewards Club elite benefit!
