Kimpton plans new Miami hotel

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is expanding its presence in Florida with the addition of Kimpton Hotel Palomar South Beach, slated to open in 2018. The new luxury boutique hotel will be located in South Beach, and will be owned and developed by the Finvarb Group.

The Hotel Palomar South Beach will be designed by Miami architect and designer Kobi Karp, and will include a rooftop pool and a new signature restaurant overlooking Collins Canal. The property will be Kimpton’s eighth hotel in the Sunshine 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.
Hotel Palomar South Beach will be located along Collins Canal on Alton Road. The hotel will also be adjacent to the Sunset Harbour neighborhood and close to the west end of the Lincoln Road pedestrian mall, where guests can access outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment. Hotel Palomar South Beach will span five stories with 96 rooms surrounding a central atrium. The boutique property will have suites and a canopy-inspired rooftop pool, an adjacent gourmet restaurant and 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, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants' CEO. “We’re thrilled to be working with The Finvarb Group and look forward to opening our doors in 2018 to reveal Hotel Palomar’s breathtaking architecture, best-in-class restaurant and glamorous rooftop.”
The Finvarb Group is a Miami-based developer founded over 40 years ago with a 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 of the Finvarb Group. “Situated in one of the most walkable locations in all of Miami Beach and equidistant to both Lincoln Road 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.”
