The Kimpton Goodland Hotel – Fort Lauderdale Beach in Florida has officially opened. Owned by Banyan Investment Group and operated by Hotel Equities, the hotel is Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants’ first property in the market and seventh property in Florida.
An adaptive reuse of the historic Escape Hotel, which originally opened in 1950 as the first year-round resort in Fort Lauderdale, the 96-room Goodland blends in with the midcentury, nostalgic look and feel of its original structure and the neighborhood. An iconic addition to the area, the Goodland spans three two-story buildings, inclusive of four food and beverage concepts, nearly 400-square-foot Wayfarer Board Room primed for small-scale events and private dining outings, onsite fitness center, and two private pools each complete with activated pool bar.
Thoughtfully curated interior design motifs include fresh color palettes juxtaposed with pops of sun-drenched South Florida colors like turquoise and terra cotta, that exude an extremely breezy vibe. All guestrooms are awash in calming, natural hues.
