At Kimpton, we promise guests “A Different Way To Stay.” We know that means we have to be a different, and better, place to work. You quickly learn Kimpton’s not just a hospitality job. Here, you’ll join a mission to make lives better. No biggie.
The real you is a job requirement; your diverse background, talents and quirks are what help our company connect meaningfully with our guests. You’ll lead your own personal career path while you help make each guest’s journey feel more personal. You won’t just punch a clock and count the hours; you’ll make it count.
That’s why FORTUNE magazine has put Kimpton on its “Best Companies To Work For” list ten times and Glassdoor has also honored us as a “Best Place to Work.” We’re proud to score a perfect 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index year over year. And our guests feel it too—thank you for helping us be the best-loved hospitality company.
Our thriving company culture, numerous hospitality career tracks, and rich benefits and perks also make us one of the best places to work. We take care of all of our people with great benefits, like paid time off; medical, dental, and vision plans; life, short-term, and long-term disability insurance; 401(k) with employer matching; back-up child and elder care; robust professional and personal development through our own Kimpton University; and employee discounts at our 65+ hotels nationwide. Plus, we throw in some extra Kimpton-style perks, like wellness programs and, of course, pet insurance.
We’re A Different Way to Stay because we’re a better place to work. From the first whirl of a hula hoop at your employee orientation (yes, it happens) to every Kimpton Moment thereafter, you’re going to love it here as much as our guests do.
You Belong Here
Individuality is the key to our spirit and our success, whether it’s the singular experience we design into each hotel, or the “be your best self” mantra we encourage in every employee. At the end of the day, we focus on humans. Because for us and our guests, it’s always personal.
We fully welcome diverse backgrounds, talents and experiences, as we believe the job can be taught. As long you bring the genuine, heartfelt care, you’re the type of person who belongs here, quirks and all.
Differences Make a Difference
We are committed to creating a company culture that reflects the diversity of our hotel and restaurant guests. This is because we know that when people are comfortable being themselves, they can connect more deeply with those around them, in a heartfelt, human way. We encourage each employee to understand, accept and celebrate people for who they are. That includes different personalities, lifestyles, work styles, education and experience. We welcome and embrace people of all races, ethnicities, ages, religions, physical abilities, sexual orientations, gender identities and genders, and have been a longstanding supporter of the LGBTQ community.

“I am part of an amazing family that cares for one another and always has an open ear to new ideas. I have a voice and it is heard here at the Shorebreak resort. When we were remodeling I suggested a rock wall and a few days later they had a team building one. This is not just a job with no future, this is a career that betters my life.” –Cameron E, Shorebreak Resort, Guest Service Agent
“On Mother’s Day, I felt really proud of being a Kimpton employee. The leaders of my property celebrated this special day for our housekeeping team. They were ushered into our largest and best suite, each one given a luxury bathrobe, premium spa products and a relaxing neck and back massage with a massage therapist. Our housekeeping team works really hard and there simply couldn’t be a better way to make a special day even more special.” –Manesha I, La Peer, Staff Accountant
“Kimpton truly creates a culture where every person feels like family. This is not about some poster in the back of the house stating that “you belong”, it’s about how people make you feel. In this family, my personality is celebrated, and it certainly comes out and shines at Kimpton. This spirit is alive and kicking at Kimpton, and I felt it the moment I arrived.” –Karl W, Schofield Hotel, People & Culture Manager
“Hands-down, Kimpton is the best company I ever worked for! My managers have always been very patient with me and personally took the time to sit down and go over the basics of food and wine knowledge with me when I wanted to advance from a busser to a server. Because of their dedication, it’s helped me grow not only in my work life, but my personal life. The environment as a whole has done nothing but make me excited and hungry to learn more.” –Rayquan R, Red Owl Tavern, Server
