SAN FRANCISCO—Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has expanded in the South Florida market with the management of The Angler’s Boutique Resort in Miami.
Originally constructed in 1931 and later restored and revamped in 2007, the 48-room The Angler’s Resort is split amongst four separate buildings. The hotel has a restaurant, boardroom, pool and seven spa suites. Set to begin in 2014, the hotel 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.
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.
“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,” stated Kimpton CEO and President Mike Depatie.
Kimpton was selected to manage the hotel by LBL Group, a Miami, FL-based development company, and current owners of The Angler’s.
