Kimpton Brice Hotel
BUDGET: $3.6 million
OWNER: Crescent Real Estate, LLC
Dubbed “Savannah’s Coolest Hotel” by Fodor’s 2018, the Kimpton Brice Hotel is centrally located in Savannah’s National Historic Landmark District, steps away from history-rich museums, monuments, mansions, and more. In 2023, Continental Contractors was tasked with elevating the property’s 145 guest rooms, lobby, and bar to the modern standards of today’s guests – without compromising on the charm and grace befitting of this Southern belle.
Continental worked hand-in-hand with Los Angeles-based interior and architectural design firm Forchielli Glynn to create a stylish yet comfortable respite for guests looking for a little pampering. The guestrooms and corridors were renovated with new carpet, vinyl wall coverings, luxury vinyl tile, fresh paint, as well as new case goods and soft goods. Guest bathrooms were updated with fresh paint, new floor and wall tile, updated vanities, new plumbing fixtures, bathroom accessories, new vinyl wall covering, and 104 tub-to-shower conversions, which included new bypass shower doors.
In addition to guestrooms and corridors, Continental renovated the property’s lobby and bar. The eye-catching herringbone pattern of the new wood floor impresses guests as they enter the lobby, guiding them to the beautiful stone-top reception desk. Other lobby features include new carpet, new paint, custom millwork in the reception area, and built-in shelves throughout the space. Pacci Italian Kitchen + Bar, the on-site restaurant and bar, also received a refresh with a new bar top and window-wall banquette area, a new server station, fresh paint and vinyl wall covering throughout, and new decorative lighting in all public space areas. The public restrooms also received a fresh tile wall mural. The total renovation was completed over the course of seven months and included the construction of a model room in late 2022 before the start of the project.
