InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has announced plans to open the first Kimpton hotel in the home of European fashion and design – Paris. Situated in one of the city’s most sought-after districts, near the famous Paris Opéra, the luxury hotel is set to open its doors in 2020.
The building will be fully transformed with Kimpton’s signature design to feature 149 guestrooms including 27 suites, luxury spa and fitness facilities, and a state-of-the-art meeting space overlooking the high-end Parisian streets, buildings and rooftops.
Mike DeFrino, Kimpton’s Chief Executive Officer, says: “The Parisian experience is unlike any other. It defies stereotypes and has a magic all its own. This unique and undefinable flavor of the city makes it the perfect place to expand Kimpton’s footprint in Europe. We’re thrilled to work with AXA Real Estate and look forward to bringing the Kimpton spirit to one of the most coveted addresses in the city.”
The Kimpton Paris is the second Kimpton hotel to be signed in Europe, following shortly after the announcement that the brand was going global with the signing of a hotel in Amsterdam. There are currently 62 managed Kimpton hotels in the US (11,153 rooms) and a further 18 (3,450 rooms) in the pipeline*. Kimpton also runs 76 destination restaurants and bars.
