Now that election day is upon us, people all over the country are mere hours from deciding whether or not to flee to Canada (or elsewhere). Others will soon be making plans to head to Washington, DC to celebrate the presidential inauguration in January.
Regardless of which category you fall into, Kimpton Hotels has your back. The brand has been preparing for an influx of visitors to the nation’s capital for some time now, and they’re ready with six new and newly renovated hotels as well as four restaurants to meet the demand.
Kimpton is offering an Inauguration Ball Package that includes deluxe accommodations, a bottle of champagne upon arrival, commemorative 2017 presidential inauguration sunglasses, $50 daily dining credit to the hotel’s adjacent restaurant and late checkout Jan. 21, 22 or 23. Each participating property offers its own unique perks as part of the package, from limo chauffeurs to cashmere gloves, personal stylists, in-room facials, VIP tours and other luxurious offers.
The packages, which ranges in price from $520-1,045 per night, are available at ten Washington, DC properties: The Kimpton George Hotel, Kimpton Hotel Monaco Washington DC, Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel, The Kimpton Donovan Hotel, Kimpton Carlyle Dupont Circle Hotel, Kimpton Glover Park Hotel, Kimpton Hotel Palomar Washington DC, Kimpton Topaz Hotel, Kimpton Rouge Hotel and Kimpton Hotel Madera.
