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.

A guestroom at the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel

The Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel will be located at 303 S. Church Street in Charlotte, N.C., directly on Romare Bearden Park and adjacent to the 25-story, 300 South Tyron office building that is currently under construction and expected to open later this summer. The property’s name was chosen for its nearby location to Tyron Stree, Romare Bearden Park and the BB&T Ballpark.

Amenities at the hotel will include a fitness center, ground-floor restaurant, a 1,100 square-foot rooftop bar and more than 9,000 square feet of events and meeting space — including a 4,000-square-foot ballroom.
