Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Upon completion of Kimpton Nine Zero, the lobby will have new velvet, stone and metallic finishes, and old-fashioned accents like leather-bound books and typewriters. The rooms will have leather-laden bed frames and Eames chairs, and will be accessorized with books and artwork. Meanwhile, the hotel’s event and workspace will also be transformed.

The property—which was acquired by Kimpton in 2006—has 2,400 square feet of private event and workspace.
