THE Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants boutique brand has flagged ambitions to make a push into the Australian market.
Following its acquisition by InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) in Jan 2015, the hotel chain has undergone a strong global expansion push, recently signing three new properties in Barcelona, Bangkok and London (TD 27 Sep).
“We are delighted to see the Kimpton brand expand globally and would love to bring the brand to Australia too,” said IHG Senior Director of Development Abhijay Sandilya.
“We have identified Kimpton as a key opportunity to accelerate our growth in the lifestyle segment in Australia…there is a growing segment of travellers who look for an experience beyond bed & board,” he added.
Kimpton is a US-based boutique luxury hotel brand.
