Kimpton cottoned on that travellers wanted to stay somewhere that was beautiful, liveable and stylish, not big and impersonal – so we set out to make life better on the road. Now we have boutique hotels in cities across the US, each customised to reflect the destination we call home, and equally exciting adjacent restaurants

We believe that human, heartfelt connections make life worth living. So we lavish them on our guests and each other. Our people are our secret ingredients. No two Kimpton hotels are the same, nor are two Kimpton employees. All of our people can just be themselves.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at InterContinental Hotels Group (London, England) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Met with three staff members. It was very informal and mostly personality based questions. I thought they were friendly people and left a good impression. I thought they would quiz me on the history or the names of corporate executives but they didn't! Mostly just personality and experience-based questions.
