Boutique US hotel brand, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, earned the top customer satisfaction score in the world during the third quarter, according to new data released today in the Market Metrix Hospitality Index (MMHI). A consistent top-performer in the Market Metrix customer satisfaction rankings, Kimpton was the biggest mover this latest quarter, improving overall customer satisfaction by nearly two points.
“There is nothing more important to our mission to be the best loved hotel company than how our guests feel about us,” commented Mike Depatie, CEO and President at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants. “We listen carefully to our guests, and take care of people in a way that requires our willingness to create real relationships with the guests in our care. It’s absolutely thrilling to see the commitment of the Kimpton team reflected in these terrific scores.”
According to Dr. Jonathan Barsky, Co-founder and Chief Research Officer at Market Metrix, “Kimpton has achieved what few other brands have. They stand out in the crowded leisure industry. Guests love Kimpton's properties – European-style gems with flair. But they are also attracted to their committed, welcoming staff.”
