The Kimpton Brice – located in a quiet part of Savannah’s Historic District – has completed of a full-property refresh. The renovations include the hotel’s lobby, guest rooms, corridors, meeting rooms, Pool Terrace, Secret Garden, and on-site restaurant, Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar

As the first full-touch renovation since the hotel’s inception in 2014, the redesign ushers in the newest chapter in the building’s storied history, which includes being the site of a livery stable, cotton warehouse, and Coca-Cola bottling plant.

“The completion of the full-property refresh and renovations represents the culmination of tireless work on the part of multiple parties,” said Jason Gifford, general manager of The Kimpton Brice. “We are proud to bring this vision to life and to be able to reintroduce The Brice as the hotel that delivers memorable moments to guests. Our curated experiences, along with our dedicated staff and unique amenities, retains the soul and depth that so strongly connects The Brice with the Savannah locals and inbound travelers. The chic ambiance and the incredible history of the building also attracts many as their staycation hotel of choice, including countless that road trip up and down the coastline.”

During the nearly year-long project, master craftsmen and designers worked meticulously to achieve the perfect balance between modern and traditional, past and present.  The Los Angeles-based interior and architectural design firm, Forchielli Glynn, was tasked to re-envision the hotel’s new look, which marries the Kimpton brand’s contemporary identity with Southern luxury and sophistication.

The lobby features a communal sofa to promote socialization, cozy seating, fringe chairs, iron rod artwork {symbolic of historical gates and entryways to Savannah estate homes}, and gold accent fixtures. Various seating layouts were sculpted to create meandering pathways encouraging flexible socialization, including a custom-made cane settee tucked away offering guests a tranquil literary corner with interesting books and objects on display, along with a movable beverage cabinet that will transform to a convivial afternoon Social Hour station.

The full restoration of the 145 guest rooms, which includes 25 suites, pays homage to traditional qualities found in Southern homes and reimagines that with contradictory elements – hard and soft, colorful and quiet, energetic and restful, playful and serious, tailored and lush. A color palette of gray and white speak to the city’s history, connecting to its native brick color with the infusion of greens and fuchsia linking to the Secret Garden and ethereal elements found throughout the squares and homes surrounding the area. 

Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar serves Italian-inspired Southern cuisine offering elements of rich textures, charcoal wood furniture, and a neutral color scheme. The eatery comes to life with refreshed menus and a revived interior, featuring new furniture that pays tribute to coastal Italian towns.
