Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is coming to Mexico next year. The upscale IHG brand will open two adaptive-reuse boutique hotels in Mexico City's Polanco neighborhood. 

The hotels are owned by ZKC, a real estate investment fund specializing in Mexico City real estate developments. The company has 78 properties, 98 percent of which are located in the city’s metropolitan area.

ZKC is developing the hotels in partnership with VineTower Development, LLC (development manager), Ambrosi Etchegaray (architect) and Arquitectura de Interiores (interior designer). One hotel will have 32 guestrooms while the other will have 48. Both hotels will have a signature restaurant and rooftop bar.
