SAVANNAH—Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has introduced The Brice here.
The 145-room property, in the heart of Savannah’s historic district, is Kimpton’s only hotel in Georgia. It features 5,700 sq. ft. of indoor meeting and event space in addition to 2,300 sq. ft. of outdoor space. The hotel offers the Secret Garden in the center of the property that features a private sanctuary and bar service. The Secret Garden also serves Kimpton’s signature, complimentary Social Hour from 5-6 p.m. daily. The Brice is a pet-friendly hotel that allows all pets at no additional fees.
The Brice is housed in the first Coca-Cola bottling plant in the city, originally built in the 1860s, but reinvents the space in a contemporary, sophisticated way. The design features horse imagery that pays tribute to the livery that was previously located there, and a factory window above the entrance pays homage to the industrial roots.
Additionally, the property offers Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar, a chef-driven Kimpton restaurant and craft cocktail bar.
“The Brice offers guests the perfect retreat away from the city, but with a gateway to the rich history, art, music, dining, shopping and entertainment options that make Savannah the true southern gem that it is,” stated GM Mitch Linder.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
