Another South Beach property has joined the Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants fold.
San Francisco-based Kimpton announced Thursday that The Angler’s Boutique Resort, 660 Washington Ave., would be managed by the boutique hotel company effective immediately.
The 48-room hotel was built in 1931 and renovated in 2007. An expansion scheduled to begin next year will add an 83-room tower, rooftop pool and a new “living room style” lobby.
LBL Group, the development company that owns the hotel, brought Kimpton in to “help take The Angler’s to the next level” as it grows.
“The brand has successfully made its mark here in South Florida with their reputation of sincere and attentive service, thoughtful design and signature style,” LBL Group principal Eric Lawrence said in a statement. “There’s no doubt they will help propel us to even greater positioning in the market.”
Kimpton, which operates 60 hotels in 26 cities, took over management of the Surfcomber on Collins Avenue in 2011 and also manages the Epic hotel in downtown Miami 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,” Kimpton CEO and President Mike Depatie in a statement. “We look forward to continuing our success here.”
