New perk alert from Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants! Introducing the first ever Chief Virtual Learning Officer (CVLO)- a new position launching at Kimpton properties across the country designed to take the hassle out of remote schooling for those parents travelling this fall.


Back to school doesn't mean an end to travel in this new remote-first world. Whether you're working from the hotel or getting away for a well-deserved vacation, Kimpton is here to help make the virtual learning process for your kids (and you!) easier than ever. Whether it's setting up their Zoom or troubleshooting when they click the wrong tab - Kimpton's on-property Chief Virtual Learning Officer is available to help make sure your kids are set up for success - leaving parents with a bit more time to focus on their own work or just sit back and enjoy some well-deserved R&R.

Kimpton's Chief Virtual Learning Officer Offering

- Available to help with all virtual learning needs - just call the front desk and they'll send the CVLO up right away. Know your child will need help at a specific time? No problem just call down in advance and schedule a complimentary CVLO appointment.

- We also know virtual learning is about more than Zoom calls, so our CVLO will be on site and ready to provide all the little things your kids need to really rock the school day (sample perks below)
