IHG Hotels & Resorts’ luxury boutique brand, Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, made its Australian debut this week with the opening of Kimpton Margot Sydney on Monday.
Located at 339 Pitt Street, the heritage-listed property pays homage to the 1930s with 172 deco-inspired rooms and nearly 600 artworks spread across the nine floors.
Kimpton Margot Sydney is likely to appeal to pet owners, with guests allowed to bring their pet, large or small, in keeping with the brand’s mantra “if it fits in the lift”.
The brand, known for its unique design, quality service and locally loved restaurants and bars, lists Luke’s Kitchen as its go-to spot in Sydney for a la carte breakfast, lunch or dinner.
With Luke Mangan at the helm, the restaurant offers a fusion of modern Asian, European and Australian cuisines.
Additionally, the hotel offers an enjoyable wine experience, Cellar By Luke, which invites guests to dine in a space surrounded by walls of Australian and international wines.
Meanwhile, the hotel’s 1930s-style Wilmot Bar features plush velvet lounges and an extensive cocktail menu.
IHG has a busy year ahead for the Kimpton brand, with seven properties set to open in 2022. Kimpton Kitalay Samui, the first Kimpton resort in Southeast Asia, opened in January, along with island resorts Kimpton Aysla Mallorca and Kimpton Naranta Bali on the way, as well as Kimpton properties in Suzhou, Greater China, Midtown Atlanta in Georgia and Kimpton Roatan in the Caribbean.
