Virtual Event

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


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.

Michal Penek is the GM of Kimpton Nine Zero.
