The Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group Inc. is a hotel and restaurant brand that is part of the Intercontinental Hotels Group (IHG) hotel company. Founded in 1981 by William (Bill) Kimpton and led by Chief Executive Officer Mike DeFrino, the group was the largest chain of boutique hotels in the United States in 2011. The Kimpton Group currently operates 65 hotels, and the group's headquarters are in San Francisco, California. All Kimpton properties are located in the United States, with the exception of the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; and the Kimpton De Witt in Amsterdam. New hotels have been announced for Toronto, Paris, Grenada, Bali, Shanghai, Sanya, and Taipei. Most Kimpton properties are marketed under their own names as boutique hotels; however, in 2005, the company launched two sub-brands within the company's brand: Hotel Palomar and Hotel Monaco. Each hotel has a restaurant or bar that is marketed as upscale or trendy. Fortune listed it as the #11 best company to work for in 2015. Under contract, the company also manages and operates hotels owned by other entities. On December 16, 2014, IHG announced that it would acquire Kimpton for $430 million in cash. IHG has retained the Kimpton brand name within the U.S. and may expand it globally. As a result of the acquisition, seven of Kimpton's nine hotels in San Francisco departed the brand in July 2015.
