IHG Opens First Kimpton Hotel in U.K.

IHG has opened the first Kimpton hotel in the United Kingdon.

The Kimpton Fitzroy London is located on Russell Square, within an iconic Grade II listed heritage building dating back to 1898. Only two minutes' walk from Russell Square tube station, the hotel is steps away from The British Museum, Lambs Conduit street and Londonís West End, making it a perfect base from which to explore all that the British capital has to offer.

A true homage to British history and design, the hotel is named after the original architect of the building, Charles Fitzroy Doll, a Titan of British architecture in the Victorian and Edwardian eras.

The hotel features 334 rooms and suites, a ballroom, a variety of F&B outlets, meeting rooms and a 24-hour fitness centre.

Kimpton Fitzroy London offers guests in-room yoga mats, complimentary bikes to explore the city, tea and coffee to fuel up for the day, and welcomes pets to stay for free. Thereís also a complimentary champagne hour - a daily social gathering for hotel guests.

Paul Walters, General Manager of Kimpton Fitzroy London, said, ďThis hotel will bring a new luxury approach to the UKĖ a more inclusive style of luxury as opposed to museum-like spaces so guests donít need to keep their voices down in the lobby, or wear a suit jacket to dinner. A defining trait for the Kimpton brand is the focus on heartfelt human connections. We want guests to  enjoy the glamour of a historic iconic building but still feel free to be themselves. Itís an approach weíre excited to bring to London, as we know itís what guests in this city are craving.Ē

Next year will see a continuation of the Kimpton brandís momentum, with additional hotel openings in key UK cities including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester. Kimpton first launched in Europe in 2017 with the opening of Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam, and since then the brand has rapidly increased its global footprint following signings in Barcelona, set to open in 2019, Tokyo and Paris, both set to open in 2020 and Frankfurt due to open in 2023. In the next few months Kimpton Da An Hotel in Taipei will also open its doors, the first Kimpton hotel in Asia.
