Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is opening two new hotels in Los Angeles in spring 2017, doubling the brand’s presence in the city. Los Angeles is home to two existing Kimpton properties – Hotel Palomar Los Angeles Beverly Hills and Hotel Wilshire – and will soon welcome The Everly, located at the base of the Hollywood Hills, and La Peer Hotel, the first hotel in West Hollywood’s Design District. Kimpton’s Southern California expansion will continue later in 2017 with the launch of a new property in Palm Springs.
“This is as very exciting time for us as we expand our Southern California influence,” Ed Virtue, Kimpton Hotels area director of operations, SoCal – Los Angeles & Orange County, said in a statement. “LA is an important region for Kimpton, and we will be uniquely positioned with four different hotels and restaurants throughout town offering the same uncompromising service our guests know and love. As Kimpton continues to position itself as a key player in the Southern California marketplace, we’re excited to offer guests a variety of great locations while introducing some extraordinary hotel and restaurant offerings that are unlike anything else out there.”
The Everly, slated to open late April 2017, will have 216 rooms, communal spaces and modern design. The hotel is steps away from the intersection of Hollywood and Vine and the Capitol Records building with panoramic views of the nearby Hollywood sign, downtown Los Angeles skyline and the Pacific Coast. The lobby, with 28-foot ceilings and a 12-seat bar, will serve as the social center and heartbeat of the hotel while the adjacent library room offers a quiet respite. The street-level café will attract guests and locals with its radiant vibe and menu honoring the California Italian-based slow food movement with freshly sourced ingredients. Guests can relax on the fifth-floor pool deck and recharge with well-crafted cocktails and light bites from day to night. The Everly will also offer creative meeting and event spaces, a fitness center, in-room spa treatments and more.
Kimpton's La Peer is scheduled to open in May, anchored between the streets of West Hollywood’s Melrose Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard. The design-forward hotel evokes a style reflective of West Hollywood. The locale will appeal to the aesthetics and sensibilities of the Design District while also retaining its own character. La Peer Hotel will have 105 guestrooms and suites, a rooftop event space, poolside fitness center and more than 8,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining and lounge spaces. In addition, the property’s pool is accented by landscaping and handcrafted lanterns hanging from above that set the tone for an urban retreat. Rounding out the project is a new restaurant concept created by Casey Lane, chef/owner of the Tasting Kitchen in Venice, Calif., and Casa Apicii in New York City.
