InterContinental Hotels Group plans to bring its Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants brand to Germany in 2023 with the opening of Kimpton Frankfurt.
The 155-room hotel will be developed in a listed building of Junghofstrasse in Frankfurt’s city center. The project will be part of developer Groß & Partners' Four Frankfurt mixed-use development. 

The high-rise in the city's central banking district will have office, residential and retail space along with the hotel. The mixed-use project, which will be designed by UNStudio architects, is expected to house 5,000 people for both business and residential purposes.

“Being one of Europe’s largest financial hubs, Frankfurt is a key location for us and this signing is a great milestone in Kimpton’s European expansion. We’re proud to partner with Groß & Partner to bring the brand to Germany, where IHG is growing at pace," Kenneth Macpherson, CEO of Europe, Middle East, Asia and Africa at IHG, said in a statement.
