Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is going to open its first hotel in the year 2020. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants in Nebraska is located at the site of the historic Blackstone Hotel in Omaha. This newest property will include 205 guestrooms, a steakhouse, a bar, a swimming pool and nearly 11,000 square feet of meeting space.
Mike DeFrino, CEO at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants said that they are thrilled to expand their portfolio in the Midwest with this iconic property. Adding Omaha alongside other Kimpton cities like Chicago and Milwaukee strengthens our presence across this part of the country and is key to our continued growth.
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will collaborate with two Omaha developers, Clarity Development Company and GreenSlate Development, to renovate the former hotel and office building. Lea A Daly and DLR Group will lead the architecture and interior design process in partnership with Kimpton’s design team. The principals of Clarity and GreenSlate and their local investment partners own the Kimpton Omaha property. Pivot Hotels & Resorts, the lifestyle and luxury operating division of Davidson Hotels & Resorts, will manage it.
Tom McLeay, president of Clarity Development said that they are very excited to join forces with Kimpton in bringing one of the most important buildings in the state back to life. They feel privileged to have this opportunity to renew a treasured Omaha landmark that has meant so much to their community, and at the same time offer a unique experience and product to the Kimpton traveller that showcases the best of Omaha.
