Dress for Success and Kimpton Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary!




New York, NY (September 22, 2014): Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is celebrating its 10-year anniversary as the official accommodations of Dress for Success® Worldwide with a bang by offering one big spending benefactor an opportunity of a lifetime.  The Suite Success travel package provides jet-setters deluxe lodging and VIP treatment at all of  Kimpton’s 61 boutique hotels in 26 U.S. cities and, at the same time, helps to get more women throughout the country back to work.  All of the proceeds from this $1,000,000 travel package will benefit Dress for Success.

The schedule of this charity-driven expedition can be determined by the travel-loving do-gooder.  The purchaser of The Suite Success travel package will receive air travel for two and a two-night stay in the finest accommodations offered at each Kimpton hotel. This package allows for this humanitarian so dedicated to bettering the lives of others to finally take some time for themselves at  all of Kimpton’s stylish, warm and welcoming hotels located in the most desirable cities throughout the country. Once this package has been acquired, it will be considered fulfilled after one full year after the purchase date, up to December 31, 2015, or once a stay at each of the 61 properties has been completed, whichever is first.  Only one stay at each hotel is permitted.

From the Presidential Suite at Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge, MA, to the Starlight Suite at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco, CA, this high-flying supporter will be able to rest easy from coast to coast, knowing that their travels assist women on their journey to economic independence and self-sufficiency.

“While many may only spend a night or two at a hotel, Dress for Success has found a true home in Kimpton,” said Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success Worldwide. “Walk into any Kimpton hotel or restaurant and you will be surrounded by the most inspiring personalities and the ideal examples of professionalism. The entire Kimpton team exudes the very qualities that we instill in the women that walk through our doors every day.”

The proceeds from the travel package will go directly to benefit the services and programs of Dress for Success, which provides professional attire to disadvantaged women and teaches them the tools to help them get back to work and assist them in remaining employed, as well as progressing in their positions until they have reached their desired level of professional achievement and personal fulfillment.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants originally partnered with Dress for Success as the official accommodations provider in 2004 for the organization’s inaugural Success Summit, a three-day leadership conference hosted for the women that it serves around the world, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this past July at Kimpton’s  Hotel Monaco in Alexandria, VA, and Hotel Monaco in Washington, D.C.  Kimpton provides a 15% discount to Dress for Success supporters booking with the rate code “DFS” and donates $10 per night back to the organization on those reservations.   Providing more than just hotel rooms and monetary support, Kimpton also provides actual jobs to the women of Dress for Success.

“We are so proud and honored to celebrate our 10-year partnership with Dress for Success with this unique offer available only to one generous Dress for Success supporter,” said Kathleen Reidenbach, senior vice president of marketing at Kimpton.  ”Our contribution enables someone to join us in our mission to put women into positions of economic and social empowerment. We look forward to taking the best of care of the benefactor of this special package in our inimitable Kimpton way of warm, sincere and welcoming hospitality.”
