Need a place to stay for the much-anticipated Outside Lands festival at the end of the month? (Or have friends coming into town for the event and don't feel like putting them up?)
While hotel prices often are significantly jacked up on event weekends--particularly one like Outside Lands that welcomes more than 60,000 attendees--the Kimpton Hotel group is offering a fabulous promotion: 25 percent off its nine city boutique stays and one Silicon Valley property from Aug. 28 through 30 using the code "OLF."
Headlining the annual music fest this year are Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Tenacious D, MIA, Ween, Band of Horses, Incubus, Black Eyed Peas, Jason Mraz and more. Tickets are still available through the Outside Lands website or at the Independent box office.
The nine Kimpton hotels in San Francisco are the Argonaut Hotel and Tuscan Inn in Fisherman's Wharf; Harbor Court Hotel and Hotel Triton in FiDi; and Hotel Monaco, Hotel Palomar, Prescott Hotel, Serrano Hotel and Sir Francis Drake Hotel in Union Square. The lone Silicon Valley stay is the Cypress Hotel in Cupertino. To book a room, visit the Kimpton Hotels website.
