REVEALING YOUR "CRUSH": Kimpton Hotels just announced the launch of its new LGBT page, and to mark the occasion, the swankery is throwing a contest. The short of it: Talk about your crush on Kimpton, either through writing (you'll have 100 or under to do so, so be snappy) or video. Deadline is Jan. 31, 2011, and the prizes are goodly. If you win, you'll stay at a Kimpton property in the Big Apple or San Francisco (where the company is based). You can fly on Jet Blue. You can spa it, in your room, and have money towards a restaurant visit.
THE NEW LGBT PAGE: There's a section devoted to parties, weddings, celebrations. The hotel company's work with the Red Ribbon Campaign. And ways to join Kimpton's incentive programs. Check it out and get talking about why you're crushing on Kimpton. We like this contest because this is the first time that a hotel chain has touched upon the fact that hotel crushes do happen, and return visits only seem to increase the ardor. Remember the first time your rode in a detail-filled elevator? Or ate at a brunch with a carving station? We do.
