Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, part of IHG Hotels & Resorts’ Luxury & Lifestyle Collection, is planning to open its first hotel in San Antonio, Texas, in late 2024. Owned and operated by White Lodging and designed by HKS Architects and KTGY Simeone Deary Design Group, the Kimpton in San Antonio will have  a 10-story tower and a rooftop pool and lounge. Two adjacent historic buildings will be converted to become a restaurant and lobby bar along with several suites. A courtyard in between the buildings will be an outdoor entertainment and event venue.

Located in the central business district and at the intersection of the city’s La Villita and Southtown neighborhoods, the 347-room hotel will be part new-build and part adaptive reuse of an 1850s-original schoolhouse. 

In addition to the courtyard, the hotel will have more than 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space, including a 5,000-square-foot ballroom. 

“We’re looking forward to expanding our footprint in the Lone Star state,” Mike DeFrino, CEO of Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, said in a statement. “Our hotels in Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth perform incredibly well, and we believe that San Antonio will round out our Texas portfolio nicely.”
