A tradition of Kimpton is to have secret social passwords periodically during the year (note - this means there are periods when there isn't a password). Any guest mentioning the password at check-in will be given an amenity at the discretion of the hotel. This thread lists the current password and what members received.

This season’s phrase is “No More Sweatpants” and is valid through September 6, 2021.

Official postings will come from http://www.facebook.com/Kimpton or Kimpton's Twitter account.
The thread documenting what was offered in previous years may be found here - https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/othe...rd-thread.html

Q. What happens if a property isn't aware of the secret password promotion?
A. If you have a mobile device, go to Kimpton's Facebook or Instagram feed, find their post announcing the secret password, and show it to the uninformed staff member. If needed, escalate to a supervisor. After the fact, send a note to IHG Customer Care or post a message via social media to Kimpton's attention.

Q. Is the promotion limited to IHG Rewards/IC Ambassador members only?
A. No, the promotion is open to any guest with a reservation at the hotel.

Q. Is the promotion good for award stays or is it only for paid stays?
A. The promotion is good for any stay, paid or award.

Q. What if I forget to mention the password when I check in?
A. You can always try and mention it at the front desk later during your stay and see if they will honor it. YMMV.

At the new Dallas Pittman Hotel on 2/13 for a local Valentines Staycation, we received a bottle of sparkling wine for the secret password, which was lovely. Loved the hotel and the restaurant - Elm & Good, which was over the top and even had a live saxophonist at dinner.

Kimpton Surfcomber Miami, FL

Recent stay in January, used the password and received a choice of red or white wine. Both choices ended up being the free wine selections from the Social Hour (and neither tasted very good).

The social passwords appear intermittently, sort of every other quarter. If Kimpton's typical yearly pattern is used again in 2021, then the next social password will be activated from the end of May or maybe the end of July.

I asked the Twitter team a few days ago and they said “it’s still in spring break” and they don’t know when it’ll be back. It’ll be a while. I think.

The history is that the promotion isn't always continually running.

I realize that your question was merged into the existing thread on the topic where your question is answered in the wikipost for this thread (the answer is 'no'). I would expect the next password to be released around the end of May, but there's no obligation for IHG to offer it at any time or with any regularity.

New promo for UK Kimpton's "Postcard Perks".

Sounds similar to the Secret Password but you need to print a postcard or they are available at the featured hotels.

Running through 31st October 2021, can be used at hotels as well at F&B outlets if not staying, perks included (but not limited to) freebies, upgrades, tipples, snacks, and merch, all hand delivered with the warmest of smiles. One postcard per customer (except pets, who might get two treats...).

Full details here Postcard Perks: Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants celebrate togetherness

I just know at some point this summer I am going to slip up and say "no more underpants" instead of sweatpants!

Well, crap. We're new to Kimpton and I've just discovered this thread...after we stayed the long weekend at the PHL Hotel Monaco!

Glad you got something nice out of it.

We'll know better next time....

cheers!
