Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announced its continued expansion in South Florida with the management of The Angler’s boutique hotel in Miami, Florida, effective from 21 November 2013.Originally constructed in 1931 and later restored in 2007, The Angler’s hotel now features 48 rooms split amongst four separate buildings. The distinctively relaxed, yet sophisticated hotel also includes a restaurant, board room, pool and seven spa suites. From 2014 the property will begin development on a new tower that will add 83 rooms, bringing the total number of suites and rooms to 131, as well a new living room style lobby and new rooftop pool.
With an urban yet tropical feel, The Angler’s – located just steps away from some of the greatest beaches in South Beach – celebrates Miami Beach’s historic architecture whilst also bringing a fresh approach that is reminiscent of old Florida.
The new South Beach hotel strengthens Kimpton’s presence in South Florida with a total of four hotels, joining the EPIC, in downtown Miami; Surfcomber, Miami, South Beach; and Vero Beach Hotel and Spa. The new project also emphasises Kimpton’s continued expansion with nine new projects announced this year, including new hotels in Austin, Grand Cayman, Milwaukee, Palm Springs, Pittsburgh, San Antonio, Savannah, Sedona, and Seattle.
“South Florida has been an especially integral part of Kimpton’s growth story over the last five years as a market with high demand among our most loyal guests. We look forward to continuing our success here,” said Kimpton CEO and President Mike Depatie. “This is also an exciting addition for us as it further strengthens our portfolio in popular leisure markets, joining hotels we already have in Scottsdale, Aspen, Vero Beach and Santa Barbara.”
