InterContinental Hotels Group is opening 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 bold and playful 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.
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.
It inspires with touches like yoga mats in every room, complimentary coffee and tea to start the day, a hosted evening Wine Hour, in-room fitness options and complimentary bikes to explore the local area.
Kimpton’s award-winning destination restaurants and bars are loved locally, and provide guests with an authentic taste of the city.
Mike DeFrino, Kimpton chief executive, said: “The Parisian experience is unlike any other.
“It defies stereotypes and has a magic all its own.
“This unique and indefinable flavour 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.
