InterContinental Hotels Group 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 hotel will be fully transformed with Kimpton’s signature bold and playful design to feature 149 guestrooms and 27 suites, luxury spa and fitness facilities, and a state-of-the-art meeting space overlooking the high-end Parisian streets, buildings and rooftops.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, acquired by IHG in January 2015, is renowned for its innovative design and personal approach to guest service, using thoughtful perks and amenities, and a sense of delight, to make guests feel truly at home.
Angela Brav, IHG chief executive, Europe said: “Bringing Kimpton to Paris marks another milestone for expansion of the brand into Europe, and we’re delighted to be working with AXA IM - Real Assets to bring Kimpton to France.
“This hotel will have one of the most coveted addresses in the city and is set to create unbelievable memories and experiences for guests - in the way that only Kimpton can.”
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 and a further 18 in the pipeline.
Kimpton also runs 76 destination restaurants and bars.
