Sacramento Kings, JMA Ventures partner to open Kimpton hotel

The Sacramento Kings and JMA Ventures are entering into a partnership to bring the first Kimtpon hotel to Sacramento.

The partnership's 250-room hotel is part of a 16-story mixed-use building near the new downtown arena, and will be part of the San Francisco-based Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants chain. The hotel is expected to open with the new arena in the fall of 2016. Planning for the building started in November.

“Securing a world-renowned brand like Kimpton builds momentum for the project and the entire Sacramento region,” Kings chairman and owner Vivek Ranadivé said in a news release. “One of our top priorities has been to ensure the arena and its supported businesses reflect Sacramento’s dynamic culture. Many hotel brands submitted proposals, but we ultimately felt that Kimpton was best-suited to help us deliver stellar hospitality anchored in inspiring design, unique style of branding and thoughtful amenities.”
