At Kimpton Nine Zero we're part of the LGBT community.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has supported the LGBT community for thirty years. Based in San Francisco, we were one of the first hotel brands to develop outreach programs for the LGBT community and the very first brand to score 100% on the HRC Corporate Equality index. Our hotels are pet-friendly and tend to be perfectly located in urban cores of important gay-friendly destinations. Put simply - we feel our hotels are unique like you. We treat our guests like extended family, and work to ensure that all guests have memorable stays.
A longtime supporter of the LGBT community, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is proud to announce a new partnership with The Trevor Project, a leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning youth ages 13-24. Kimpton is the first national hotel sponsor for The Trevor Project.
Since Kimpton’s inception, the company has been deeply committed to an overall philosophy of inclusion and diversity that celebrates the unique differences of guests and employees. Continuing a legacy of employee-driven philanthropy, Kimpton’s engagement with The Trevor Project originated in 2013 through employees who have a passion for Trevor’s commitment to saving lives of LGBT youth in crisis, and the organization’s message of empowerment, pride, bravery and acceptance. It became clear when the relationship kicked off in January 2013 as a pilot partnership that the two organizations are strongly aligned on culture, beliefs and goals. This year, Kimpton will evolve its commitment to include a mix of marketing, social media, events and employee volunteer opportunities that will help The Trevor Project expand into new markets and raise funds to support its mission.
“One of the many reasons guests and employees love Kimpton is our philosophy of inclusiveness and the belief that everyone deserves to be appreciated for who they are,” said Kimpton Senior Vice President of Hotel Operations Barry Pollard, who has supported The Trevor Project personally and is currently an active member on Kimpton’s internal LGBT committee. “Our organizations share similar values. We both believe that inclusivity and diversity of thought, beliefs, backgrounds, gender and sexual orientation make our communities stronger. The Trevor Project provides a serious and much-needed service to the LGBT community and we’re honored to help the organization support this mission and raise awareness for this important issue.”
“The LGBT youth who turn to The Trevor Project for support often lack a sense of acceptance, just because of who they are. That is why engaging with organizations like Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, where diversity and acceptance are valued, is important,” said Abbe Land, Executive Director and CEO of The Trevor Project. “The Trevor Project is proud to partner with Kimpton.”
As part of the partnership, Kimpton will become the presenting sponsor of The Trevor Project’s Ambassador program. Trevor Ambassadors are volunteer groups in major U.S. cities that work to expand Trevor's programs, communications and fundraising efforts, helping to ensure LGBT youth have the support they need locally when faced with a suicide crisis. Additionally, Kimpton’s active LGBT Employee Resource group, KPRIDE, which coordinates LGBT activities across the company, will work with existing Trevor Ambassadors at the local level to help with community outreach and regional fundraising events. Markets where Kimpton has a significant hotel and restaurant presence that are also locations for Trevor Ambassadors include Chicago, Philadelphia, Salt Lake City, San Diego, San Francisco and Washington, D.C.
Kimpton also will work closely with the organization on TrevorLIVE, a semi-annual fundraising event that brings together top entertainers and corporate leaders to support The Trevor Project’s life-saving, life-affirming work for LGBT youth in crisis. As part of this partnership, Kimpton hosted the TrevorLIVE kick-off party on April 23 at the Eventi, a Kimpton Hotel, in NYC where more than 200 guests celebrated and posted #lovethyselfie photos in support of LGBT youth.
Over the last 33 years, Kimpton has developed strong working relationships with pro-LGBT groups such as the Mautner Project, National Lesbian & Gay Journalists Association, The National Center for Lesbian Rights, The Transgender Law Center and The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce. All Kimpton hotels are members of IGLTA (International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association), and TAG approved, a certification that assures gay-friendly hotel practices. Since 2004, Kimpton has also maintained a perfect rating on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index.
“Nice and satisfying stay”
The service was great. The ambiance and the vibe were all wonderful and love those special touches that make you feel at home: complimentary morning coffee and tea at the lobby as well as afternoon wine and cheese as well where you can connect with other guests.-Maria
"Excellent Location, helpful staff, nice rooms"
This hotel worked well for our trip to Boston. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was near so many of the sites that we ended up walking most of the time. It's a couple of blocks to Boston Common, and most of the Freedom Trail sites were a half mile or less away. It was an easy walk to the North End as well as the New England Aquarium. But also very close to the subway station so we had a very easy trip to visit Harvard and other excursions further out. There were several restaurants and a cvs on the block. DanAndMike
"We will go back!
We had a queen suite with a little bit of a view, we were on the 5th floor. Think higher floors would be the play here. The rooms seemed smallish even with the one bedroom suite. Ben the bellman went out of his way to be helpful to our family. Our housekeeper Ligia always made sure we were happy and comfortable. . There are also loaner bikes you can borrow at the hotel if you feel like getting out that way. Every morning there is a complimentary coffee and tea station in the lobby. There is always spa water on offer and in the evening there was a complimentary wine hour from 5-6. I would recommend this spot and would return the next time I visit Boston. - J W, Redondo Beach, California
"Great Hotel and fabulous location"
Location: 2-3 minute walk to Boston common and gardens. Freedom trail basically starts here. Blueline subway from the airport subway station brings you within a 5 minute walk to the hotel. It is an 12 minute walk to Hanover St. that has an unbelievable selection of great restaurants. Around the corner from the hotel is wonderful shopping. The hotel staff are wonderful, truly friendly and free wine from 4-6 pm everyday.- waynewY2891RA
"Clean, Modern, Dog Friendly, Great Location"
I am a big fan of Kimpton properties - these are the hotels of the future. Each one unique and inviting. The Nine-Zero (it's address) is no exception. Our room (double Queens) was spacious, clean, updated, and well-appointed. Bathroom was luxurious (though towel hooks on the back of the door would be wise as there was no place for a towel on the shower side of the room other than the floor). Free evening wine, wonderful cool fruited water, and lemonade in the lobby were all welcome. -R B, Northern Virginia, Virginia
“A Great Weekend in a Great Hotel in a Great City”
The rooms were nice and spacious. The staff were amazing. When there was an issue with some water overflowing in the bathroom they moved me to another room straight away. 10 second walk from the brilliant Beantown Pub and a 10 minute walk from Faneuil Hall Marketplace. -Garymerse
