US: A new 10-storey Kimpton hotel is being developed in San Antonio, marking the brand’s debut in the city.
Owned and operated by White Lodging, the hotel is being developed in partnership with HKS Architects and KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group. It is anticipated to open in 2024.
The restoration of an 1850s schoolhouse will form part of the construction. Trees more than one hundred years old sit in the courtyard of the school and will be incorporated into the new plans for the site.
When completed, the hotel will feature 347 rooms, a restaurant and lobby bar, rooftop pool and lounge, more than 10,000 square-feet of flexible event space, and more.
CEO of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, Mike DeFrino, said: “We’re looking forward to expanding our footprint in the Lone Star state. Our hotels in Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth perform incredibly well, and we believe that San Antonio will round out our Texas portfolio nicely. Our partners at White Lodging are the ideal operators to bring this new Kimpton to life and embrace the soul of San Antonio.”
Jean-Luc Barone, CEO for White Lodging, added: “The Kimpton in San Antonio represents the first of the brand in our portfolio of urban, experiential and lifestyle hotels. This area represents a new hub for the city where history, culture, art, entertainment, commerce and transformation – and the future of San Antonio – seamlessly come together.”
When Kimpton San Antonio opens, it will join the brand’s four other hotels located across Texas.
