Kimpton hotel for Amsterdam
InterContinental Hotels Group signs the first Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants hotel outside of the Americas. Debuting in Europe, the hotel will be located in the heart of Amsterdam.
The hotel, which is currently operating as Crowne Plaza Amsterdam City Centre, will undergo renovation of the lobby, restaurants, facilities and guestrooms. It will open as a 270-room luxury Kimpton hotel in 2017.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in January 2015. Richard Solomons, IHG chief executive, said: “IHG’s ability to take Kimpton to new markets and geographies was a key part of the transaction and we’re delighted to announce this important milestone for the brand.
“It is testament to the global appeal of the Kimpton brand and to the strength of IHG’s global scale and relationships with owners across the world.”
There are currently 59 managed Kimpton hotels in the US (10,700 rooms) and a further 16 hotels (3,200 rooms) in the pipeline.
