SAN FRANCISCO—Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has revealed plans to expand its presence in Florida with the addition of Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach, slated to open in 2018.
Owned and developed by The Finvarb Group, the hotel will feature a design by Miami architect and designer Kobi Karp, a rooftop pool and amenities, and a new signature restaurant overlooking Collins Canal. The property will be Kimpton’s eighth hotel in the state, complementing its existing hotels in South Beach, Miami, Palm Beach and Vero Beach, as well a Tampa property also set to open in 2018.
Situated in the heart of South Beach, Miami, the property will be located along the Collins Canal and adjacent to the Sunset Harbour neighborhood. The boutique hotel will span five stories with 96 rooms surrounding a central atrium, featuring amenities such as a canopy-inspired rooftop pool, gourmet restaurant and a fitness center.
“Miami continues to be one of the hottest tourist destinations in North America and has become an increasingly popular destination for international travelers as well. The Hotel Palomar South Beach will be a wonderful addition to our properties in sunny South Florida,” said Mike DeFrino, CEO, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants.
The hotel’s owner and developer, The Finvarb Group, is a Miami-based developer founded more than 40 years ago with a diverse development portfolio of real estate projects, including hotels, high-rise condominiums, multifamily apartment buildings, single-family developments, office buildings and retail.
“We are extremely pleased to continue the expansion of our hotel footprint in South Beach and could not think of a more fitting partner than Kimpton to open this iconic Hotel Palomar at this South Beach gateway location,” said Ronny Finvarb, principal, Finvarb Group. “Situated in one of the most walkable locations in all of Miami Beach and equidistant to both Lincoln Rd., and Sunset Harbour, guests of the hotel will not only be surrounded by world-class restaurants, shopping and other great amenities, but they will also enjoy state-of-the-art design, technology, comfort and the unparalleled service that our hotel and Kimpton team will offer.”
