US: Caydon Property Group, developers of the Caydon Laneways complex, is to welcome Kimpton Hotels to the project.
The hotel and residential project is scheduled to open at the end of 2022. Drewery Place, a 27-storey multifamily tower, has already been completed.
The Kimpton Hotel will comprise 204 guest rooms, including a signature restaurant, café, and a rooftop pool and bar.
Caydon CEO, Joe Russo, said: “We are working with Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to bring the first boutique hotel to Midtown, as we want to create a lively mixed-use development that captures the essence of the location.”
“With Laneways located between two major employment hubs, Texas Medical Centre and Downtown, we want to provide savvy travellers a new opportunity to stay in an upscale hotel with a homelike experience and community feel in one of Houston’s rapidly growing neighbourhoods, Midtown,” Russo continued.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants CEO, Mike DeFrino, commented: “Houston is the ideal place to expand our Texas footprint. Midtown is quickly solidifying its place as the heart of the city, and its diverse cosmopolitan vibe fits perfectly with Kimpton’s brand of hospitality. Partnering with Caydon on their first US development project is an incredibly opportunity.”
As Kimpton’s third deal in Texas, its hotel in Caydon Laneways will join the Kimpton Hotel Van Zandt in Austin, and the Kimpton Pittman Hotel in Dallas, slated to open in the summer of 2020.
