The second Kimpton property will be located in Rotterdam.
This is the second hotel for Kimpton® Hotels & Restaurants in The Netherlands and will be located in Rotterdam’s POST building, the city’s former main Post Office dating back to 1921. The property will offer 231 rooms created by ODA NY.
The hotel will be developped and opened with Omnam Group under a management agreement, and is set to open in 2022.
Karin Sheppard, Managing Director, Europe, IHG, commented: “Rotterdam is the second largest city in The Netherlands, growing in popularity with both domestic and international tourists and attracting a bustling leisure scene. It is an ideal fit for our Kimpton brand, whose heartfelt, personalised service and bold design will resonate well with this vibrant city. We’ve seen in Amsterdam just how well our luxury boutique offering has been received in Europe, and this new signing only reinforces momentum for Kimpton’s international expansion.”
David Zisser, Founder and CEO Omnam Group, commented: “The magnificent POST building deserves a carefully customised approach to design and hospitality. The Kimpton brand and philosophy is, simply put, a 100% fit. We are convinced that POST will become an international icon where people from all over the world will come, stay and enjoy.”
The luxury boutique brand was acquired by IHG in 2015 and currently operates 66 Kimpton hotels across the Americas and Europe. There are 25 hotels in the Kimpton pipeline, with destinations including Bangkok, Bali, Taipei, Tokyo and Shanghai.
