News release placeholder

Leading boutique hospitality company increases Southern California presence.

Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announced today its first property in the Grove District Anaheim Resort area in the city of Garden Grove, expanding the brand in Southern California. The mixed-use development by SCG America Group is slated to open in 2021. 

The hotel will join the ten Kimpton properties across the region including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Diego, Huntington Beach and Palm Springs. 

The five-acre Garden Grove development complex is located along Harbor Boulevard within the Grove District Anaheim Resort area. The project will include a four-star 200-room Kimpton hotel, along with retail stores, and restaurants. This iconic project will open just blocks from Disneyland, as well as the Anaheim Convention Center, Angel Stadium, and Honda Center. 

The new Kimpton hotel will showcase approximately 10,000 square-feet of meeting space, two restaurants, a rooftop pool and lounge. Guests will enjoy an unobstructed view of the Disneyland fireworks show from several suites as well as the rooftop bar. Ave Bradley, Global Senior Vice President of Design at Kimpton, will represent the Kimpton brand in the design and architecture for the hotel, in partnership with SCG America’s selected team - the Friedmutter Group and Archilier Architecture. 

Mike DeFrino, Chief Executive Officer at Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants, said: “This is an exciting time for Kimpton as we strengthen our presence in Southern California. With this property, we will be able to introduce our unique approach to hospitality and extraordinary restaurant and bar experience to a growing audience. We’re thrilled to partner with SCG America on this cornerstone development.”


Steve Jones, Garden Grove Mayor, commented: “Clearly, Kimpton is a leader in creating world class lifestyle hotels and award-winning destination restaurants. We are excited to welcome Kimpton’s extraordinary team of hospitality experts to our great city, and to this very exciting development, that will contribute greatly to the overall transformation and modernization of our vibrant business and tourism corridor.”
