Bill Kimpton Stories

Bill Kimpton brought his personal dream of owning a collection of boutique hotels and chef driven restaurants alive with his first hotel and restaurant, The Hotel Bedford and the Cafe Bedford, in San Francisco in April 1981. His spirit and energy was focused on making sure that every employee felt valued, loved and knew they were part of a daytime family bound together with one singular purpose - to ensure every guest, every day felt welcomed, appreciated and a part of the Kimpton family.

Below is an abundance of heart felt stories from the people who worked daily with Bill that further expand on who Bill Kimpton was as a man, a father, our founder and above all else a kindred soul to all of us who appreciate the mental, spiritual, and deep rooted values that his life affords us all.
