IHG to Open UKís First Kimpton Hotel in London

IHG will debut its Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand in the UK with the opening of Kimpton Fitzroy London in late October 2018.

Kimpton Fitzroy London is located in Londonís Bloomsbury neighbourhood in an iconic heritage building which originally opened in Russell Square in 1898.

 The hotel has been named after the original architect of the hotel, Charles Fitzroy Doll - a titan of British architecture in the Victorian and Edwardian eras who specialised in designing hotels. The hotel also  honours the name with Fitzís bar (pictured) , the hotelís glamorous cocktail bar.

Earlier this year IHG and Covivio entered an agreement to rebrand and operate 12 hotels (and one pipeline hotel) currently operating under the Principal and De Vere brands.

 The Principal London is the first of these hotels to be re-branded as Kimpton Fitzroy London. Next year will see a continuation of the brandís momentum with additional Kimpton hotel openings in highly desirable cities such as Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester.

Kimpton first opened in Europe last year with the opening of Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam, and since then the brand has rapidly increased its global footprint following signings in Tokyo and Paris, both set to open in 2020, and Kimpton Frankfurt, due to open in 2023. In the next few months Kimpton Da An Hotel in Taipei will also open its doors.

Founded in 1981 by Bill Kimpton, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants was acquired by IHG in 2015 and currently operates 67 hotels and 82 restaurants, bars and lounges in the U.S., Caribbean and Europe.
