Kimpton Hotel Theta, managed by Highgate, recently opened its doors in Manhattan’s Theater District. The new IHG property is inspired by Theta brain waves (associated with self-reflection and meditation) as well as derives its name from the Greek alphabet’s eighth letter, Theta—a fitting connection to its location on 8th Avenue.
The adaptive reuse of an existing mixed-use hotel, the 15-floor Kimpton Hotel Theta celebrates existing architecture by Morris Lapidus, the late architect behind many of Miami Beach’s most iconic buildings. Overseen by LUCID—Highgate’s in-house design and construction studio—and designed by CRÈME, the 364-key hotel features asymmetric details, subtle layering, and sumptuous textures. Every corner of the property fuses art and history, fostering gathering places where culture and community intersect.
