Must read


(15/04/24)
 
IHG has signed the first Kimpton hotel in the
Portuguese capital of Lisbon.

Scheduled to open in 2026, the Kimpton Lisbon will
be the brand’s second hotel in the country, following the signing
of the Kimpton Algarve São Rafael Atlántico in late 2023.

Signed under a franchise agreement with Real Hotel
Group, the 141-room hotel will be located in the heart of Lisbon, with key
tourist attractions such as the Eduardo VII
Park, Marquês de Pombal Square and Avenida Liberdade, as well as
museums, restaurants and bars all within easy walking distance.

Facilities at the hotel will include a choice of
restaurants and bars, a rooftop pool, gym and a variety of meeting
and event spaces.

“We are thrilled at the opportunity to bring the first Kimpton
Hotels & Restaurants property to Lisbon, and our eighth hotel in
partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts,” said Eurico Almeida,
CEO, Real Hotels Group. “We look forward to
combining IHG’s global enterprise with Kimpton’s renowned blend of
luxury and individuality, partnering with the award-winning
architecture and design group, Rockwell, and infusing them into
the heart of Lisbon’s vibrant hospitality landscape.”

Kimpton Lisbon joins a global
portfolio of 78 Kimpton hotels across 12 countries, representing
13,721-bedrooms.

In addition to Kimpton, IHG currently operates 20 hotels
across seven brands in Portugal, including Six Senses,
InterContinental, Vignette Collection, Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn,
Holiday Inn Express and Iberostar.
