Kimpton to operate new San Antonio boutique hotel

US: Silver Ventures has selected Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to operate a four-star boutique hotel at the Pearl, a former brewery site in San Antonio, Texas.

Silver Ventures, which is redeveloping the Pearl site, will own the hotel and has selected Woodbine Development Corp. to develop the 146-room property, which will be located in the former brewhouse, a 119-year-old structure. It’s slated to open in the fall of 2014.

When it opens in autumn 2014, it will be Kimpton’s third managed property in Texas, joining the Hotel Lumen and Hotel Palomar, both in Dallas.

Kimpton CEO Mike Depatie said: “Texas is a great growth market for us and the ability to expand into San Antonio as part of such an iconic property and popular destination is especially thrilling for us.”

Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer at Pearl, said: “Kimpton is the recognized leader in adaptive reuse development projects such as this. San Antonio is emerging as a hot destination for culinary travel, and Kimpton has a great reputation for both chef-driven restaurants, creative services and amenities and warm, personal service that will take Pearl to a whole new level.”
