Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has set its sights on scenic Key West in Florida, with a new collection of properties slated to open there in early 2020.

This will mark the sixth project for Kimpton in the state, which is known for its sunshine. It will, however, be its first location in the vaunted Florida Keys. The collection will be comprised of five separate hotels.

Located in the area’s historic district, each will feature its own special story and stay experience, all of which will blend timeless architecture with classic Key West bohemia.

“Key West is such a natural fit as a Kimpton destination, with its distinctive island style and vibrant local scene,” said Mike DeFrino, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ CEO.

“Key West is rich with the kind of history and welcoming culture that our guests value in their stay experiences. We look forward to bringing our signature heartfelt hospitality to this unique market.”

One-of-a-kind way to experience Key West

The Kimpton Key West is owned and developed by KHP Capital Partners and is notable for how each part of it will honour a unique part of history.

Each individual property in the collection has its own story and some of them date back to the middle of the 19th century. At the same time, all five properties will be design-forward, with the friendly vibe Kimpton is known for.

Finally, no two rooms of the collection’s 219 total in the Florida Keys will be the same. Instead, room types will include everything from estate-like guesthouses to charming bungalows and original conch houses. Design masterminds Powerstrip Studio are leading the project.

Key West, America’s tropical paradise

Key West is one of the most tropical and exotic locations in the United States.

The southernmost location in the continental US, Key West boasts a laid-back Caribbean vibe set against the backdrop of azure waters. Home to artistic icons like Ernest Hemingway and Winslow Homer, the destination has long attracted travellers with its carefree spirit.

Known as a hub of creativity and acceptance, visitors to Key West have been inspired by its natural beauty as much as by its rich cultural heritage.

Centrally located in historic Old Town Key West, Kimpton Key West will offer a gateway to the island’s varied experiences, from live music to shopping, sailing, sport-fishing and beyond.

The Kimpton brand continues to grow in the US and internationally with over 25 Kimpton hotels across 20 new global destinations including Mexico City, Paris, Barcelona, Bali and Shanghai scheduled to open in the next three to five years.
