Two hotels have announced openings for the end of the month in Ohio and California. 


Vision Hospitality Group is set to open the new lifestyle hotel Kinley, Cincinnati Downtown on October 22. The 94-room hotel is in a historic building between downtown and the city’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood.
Derived from the word kinship, the Kinley joins its sister property in Chattanooga, Tenn.
The hotel has contactless check-in in the lobby, along with a bar that serves coffee and pastries in the morning and cocktails and bar bites in the evening. The property’s main restaurant, Khora, is overseen by chefs Kevin Ashworth and Edward Lee.

The Kinley partnered with Cincinnati Art Underground to curate local art pieces for display around the property, including a hand painted mural design in the lobby area in collaboration with Cincinnati-based artist Andrey Kozakov. The outside building features a historical mural, “Allegro,” originally painted by artist Barron Krody for a series entitled Urban Walls: Cincinnati in 1971.

The Radisson Blu Anaheim, owned by BPM Real Estate Group, is set to open the week of October 26. 

The 326-room hotel has three restaurants, two bars, two outdoor pools and a 12th-story rooftop. The property’s two meeting rooms offer 810 square feet of meeting space. The property is four blocks away from Disneyland.

The hotel’s guestrooms and suites, public areas, and food-and-beverage spaces were designed by the hospitality interiors team at global design firm HKS, led by principal and director of design Mary Alice Palmer and senior interior designer Vanessa Redman. Contrasts between light and dark are woven throughout the hotel from the elevators to the corridors and guestrooms to the dining outlets. The lobby’s bespoke hand-tufted rug is an abstraction of the property’s position at the juncture of I-5 and Anaheim Boulevard.

More than 130 rooms have bunk beds for family stays of up to six guests as well as 40 pairs of connecting rooms and 20 suites with corner views. The bunk bedrooms have a bright color palette while the other rooms feature the subtler tones found in a Southern California sunset.
