今日双色球开奖结果 www.xnzvqg.com.cn Kimpton is the playful and sociable brand within IHG. While individual Kimpton stays can be hit or miss, the brand as a whole is generally on-point due to its atmosphere and uniqueness — plus fun inclusions, such as evening happy hour.

One fun, periodic Kimpton promotion unlocks a free gift at check-in just by saying a particular phrase known as a “Secret Password.” This Kimpton social password is not always in play, but it just made its triumphant return in time for the summer travel season. At check-in during your next Kimpton stay (before Sept. 2), say “Off Duty” and watch the magic happen.

TPG readers have reported that weaving the secret phrase into their check-in conversation to be both fun and rewarding. However, if the check-in agent is a little surprised or confused, just let them know you saw it on Kimpton’s Twitter account and hopefully the manager on duty will know what to do.

When Mommy Points and her family stayed at Kimpton’s Hotel Monaco Denver during last summer’s promotion, the secret phrase gave them a spin of the prize wheel that resulted in a family-pleasing free in-room movie and snacks!

Plus, remember that Gold Elite, Platinum Elite and Spire Elite IHG Rewards Club members get a Raid the Bar credit when staying at a Kimpton property.

By far, the easiest way to get IHG elite status is through the IHG Rewards Club Premier Credit Card, which provides Platinum Elite status. The card has an $89 annual fee, but the annual fee essentially pays for itself if you make use of the annual free night benefit.

But, it doesn’t take any elite status to say three magic words at your next Kimpton check-in to see what sort of magic is unlocked: “Out of Office”.
