Kimpton launches new global Plant Pals Program
Whoever said money can’t buy happiness has never known the joy of purchasing a new house plant.
With studies showing that plants have the ability to boost moods and increase productivity, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is launching a new global guest amenity program, rolling out in April in honor of Earth Day, to offer travelers a mood booster straight from Mother Nature herself.
Introducing the Kimpton Plant Pals Program – a first-of-its-kind offering that provides regionally sourced plants for guests to enjoy in-room, upon request. Choosing from Kimpton’s native plant menu, dictated by each property’s location, guests can select their plant pal – each coming with a unique name tag, like Morgan Treeman, Snake Gyllenhaal, and Nagini (The Snake Plant). Guests can simply call the front desk to request their complimentary plant be placed in their room (along with care tips) to brighten their stay before or any time after check in.
As part of the brand’s evolving ESG commitment to source locally and work with like-minded brands, Kimpton partnered with Plant Kween, a Brooklyn-based Black, queer and non-binary influencer specializing in plants, to curate a unique selection of region-based, native plants for each property to offer in a sustainable way.
Based on Plant Kween’s expertise and recommendation, each Kimpton property worked with a local vendor to source the appropriate plants. Guests can find a sampling of plants at Kimpton properties around the world. For example:
