Believing human connection makes life more meaningful, Kimpton recently launched its Stay Human Project in Europe. As part of the project, the brand transformed one guestroom from each hotel with the aim of using it to help guests connect to each other, themselves and locals. The unique guestroom experiences are currently available for booking in the United Kingdom and the Netherlands until the end of the year.

At Kimpton Fitzroy London, guests are invited to write on the walls and share moments of human connections via an interactive mural. An analog typewriter is available for guests to reconnect with others via old-fashioned mail. The hotel will send the mail for free to the recipient of choice.

At Kimpton De Witt, Amsterdam, guests are given a chore — taking care of the in-room plants. After some inner reflection, guests are encouraged to record their mood in a guestbook, pick out a room scent to match their feelings and head to the bar for a custom cocktail based on their mood.

At Kimpton Charlotte Square Hotel, Edinburgh, the guestroom is outfitted with a loom. Since making a tapestry takes some time, many guests will work at the loom during their stay over the course of several weeks until the tapestry is finished.

Finally, at Kimpton Blythswood Square Hotel, Glasgow, guests are encouraged to simply pass on acts of kindness, record them in the guestroom and inspire others to do the same.

“The Kimpton Stay Human Project rooms offer much more than just beautiful places to sleep. The guestroom experiences encourage heartfelt human connections and continue the legacy of the brand’s charismatic founder, Bill Kimpton, and his mission to cultivate boutique luxury hotels with a difference. At Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, we proudly put people first. We believe that the luxury we offer is all about catering to the individual’s needs through meaningful connections, that’s why with the Kimpton Stay Human Project we’re going above and beyond to create experiences with heart,” said Tom Rowntree, vice president, global luxury brands, InterContinental Hotels Group.
