Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will be bringing its rapidly expanding brand to Germany in 2023 with the opening of Kimpton Frankfurt.
Set in a listed building of Junghofstrasse in Frankfurt’s city center, the luxury boutique hotel will feature 155 rooms, two large meeting rooms and an onsite gym. In addition to the hotel’s signature restaurant, there are also plans for a sky-bar and restaurant on the roof terrace, where guests will be able to enjoy an unrivalled skyline view of the city. The classic 1950s lobby will be restored and serve as the main entrance to the hotel.
Kimpton Frankfurt is part of Frankfurt’s most pioneering development projects; FOUR Frankfurt, which is led by highly-regarded developer Groß & Partner. FOUR Frankfurt is a unique high-rise quarter in the middle of the central banking district which features office, residential and retail space in the city center. The mixed-use project, which highlights innovative and sustainable design by UNStudio architects, will house up to 1,000 people and be home to 4,000 employees.
Mike DeFrino, CEO of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, said: “This Frankfurt signing will be an incredible addition to the Kimpton portfolio and further strengthens our growing boutique presence in Europe. Frankfurt is a compelling city for our guests to explore; it’s a central hub for business and finance with a balance of the old and new. We’re thrilled to bring Kimpton’s heartfelt service and design-led approach to Germany in partnership with Groß & Partner.”
Nikolaus Bieber, Managing Director of Groß & Partner said: “Frankfurt can look forward to a new, international hotel brand in a class of its own. With the signing of Kimpton Frankfurt, the FOUR Frankfurt receives another point of attraction that will enrich and upgrade the downtown area. The Kimpton Frankfurt in Junghofstraße will be a special experience, not only for hotel guests enjoying the city skyline but also for local restaurant and bar visitors.”
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015. The luxury boutique brand currently operates 66 hotels and 80 restaurants, bars and lounges in the U.S., Caribbean, and Europe. Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam was the first Kimpton property to open outside of the Americas in May 2017. Continuing the brand’s expansion in key cities across Europe, IHG has announced plans to debut the brand in the UK and open Kimpton Paris in 2020, and introduce more European signings in the pipeline. This announcement continues Kimpton’s international expansion to new global markets in every IHG operating region, with additional hotels underway in Tokyo, Taipei, Bali, Shanghai and Sanya.
