InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has unveiled plans to open its first Kimpton Hotel in Paris, which will mark the group’s second property in Europe.
The hotel will open its doors in 2020 in one of Paris’ most sought-after districts near the famous Paris Opéra.
The 149-bed hotel will be completed with Kimpton’s bold and playful design and also be home to a spa and fitness facility, plus meeting space that will overlook the Parisian streets.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in January 2015.
Angela Brav, IHG’s chief executive officer, Europe says: “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.”
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.
