Kimpton prepares to open boutique Charlotte hotel

Charlotte, N.C., will be home to the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel when it opens later this year.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is preparing to put the finishing touches on an 18-story hotel in Charlotte, N.C., this October. The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel will be a 217-room boutique hotel opening in Uptown Charlotte, and will be the second Kimpton property in the region after the Winston-Salem Cardinal Hotel.

Cornerstone Real Estate Advisers and Spectrum Properties are developing this new hotel, and Robert Hannigan is the property's GM. 

Hannigan has more than 25 years of experience operating in the hospitality industry, and since he joined Kimpton in 2007 he has stepped into a variety of management roles at multiple boutique hotels in California, Oregon and Washington, D.C. As GM of the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel, Hannigan will oversee and manage all aspects of the hotel. Most recently, Hannigan was named GM of the Kimpton Hotel Monaco Portland, a 220-room hotel in Portland, Ore.
