Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will manage a new-build 120-room hotel being built by the Fana Group of Companies in Bellevue, Wash., just north of Seattle. The luxury property will be part of a mixed-use development that will break ground in early 2017.  

When it debuts in 2019, the Bellevue Kimpton will feature about 5,000 square feet of meeting space, a full-service restaurant, a rooftop pool with event space and a lounge, and a fitness center. 

"The Pacific Northwest has been an integral part of Kimpton's growth story for more than two decades, and we look forward to expanding our presence in one of the strongest markets in the country," said Mike DeFrino, CEO of Kimpton. "The hotel's prime location near some of downtown Bellevue's best shopping and nightlife -- not to mention the only rooftop hotel pool in the area -- will be a draw for travelers. Our signature amenities like complimentary bikes and the nightly hosted wine hour will surely delight some new Kimpton fans as well." 

The Bellevue property will be Kimpton's eighth hotel in the Pacific Northwest, including four properties in Seattle: the Hotel Monaco Seattle, Hotel Vintage Seattle, the Palladian and the Alexis. Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants is part of the InterContinental Hotels Group.
