IHG will be bringing its rapidly expanding Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand to Germany in 2023 with the opening of Kimpton Frankfurt.
Set in a listed building of Junghofstrasse, the luxury boutique hotel will feature 155 rooms, two meeting rooms and an onsite gym. In addition to the hotel’s restaurant, there are also plans for a sky-bar and restaurant on the roof terrace.
Kimpton Frankfurt is part of Frankfurt’s most pioneering development project: FOUR Frankfurt, which is led by Groß & Partner.
FOUR Frankfurt will features office, residential and retail space. The mixed-use project, which highlights sustainable design by UNStudio architects, will be home to 5,000 people for both business and residential purposes.
Kenneth Macpherson, CEO of Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa (EMEAA) at IHG, commented: “Being one of Europe’s largest financial hubs, Frankfurt is a key location for us and this signing is a great milestone in Kimpton’s European expansion. We’re proud to partner with Groß & Partner to bring the brand to Germany, where IHG is growing at pace. Guests staying at Kimpton Frankfurt can expect Kimpton’s signature bold and playful design, luxury, personalised service and truly local feel.”
Nikolaus Bieber, Managing Director of Groß & Partner commented: “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. 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 De Witt in Amsterdam was the first Kimpton property to open outside of the Americas in May 2017. Continuing the brand’s expansion across Europe, IHG has announced plans to debut the brand in the UK and open Kimpton Paris in 2020.
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.
