TPG wins the race for Kimpton Overland Airport Hotel

The contemporary 214-key Kimpton Overland Airport Hotel in Atlanta, Georgia is to be operated by TPG Hotels, Resorts & Marinas. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ sleek scheme lies adjacent to the world’s busiest airport, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and right by the North American headquarters of Porsche.

This distinctive property was developed in partnership with Porsche’s Atlanta corporate campus and Driver Experience Center. As a result, it showcases the same style as the sports car specialist’s headquarters.

Greg Wilson, CEO of Acron (USA), said: “After an extensive search and interview process, an operator candidate stood out among the final group of premier hospitality operators Acron considered.

“We are pleased to have TPG Hotels, Resorts & Marinas as our new management company for the Kimpton Overland. We look forward to the direction and resulting success we are confident will take place as a result of our mutual collaboration.”

A successful switch to Kimpton

Kimpton Overland Airport Hotel is home to 214 rooms and suites, a full-service restaurant, 7,000 sq ft of meeting space and the eighth-floor Rooftop at the Overland, which overlooks Porsche’s 1.6-mile Driver Development Track as well as the airport’s runways. Having originally opened in 2017, the property converted to Kimpton in 2019 after undergoing a US$1.25 million renovation programme.

“The Kimpton Overland Airport Hotel is an exceptional asset with built-in demand drivers including excellent proximity to the world’s busiest airport,” said Robert Leven, chief investment officer of TPG Hotels, Resorts, and Marinas.

“We see tremendous revenue growth opportunity for this asset as business and leisure travel begin to stabilise. The addition of this property to our third-party managed assets is part of our strategy to seek additional growth opportunities throughout the United States.”
