New Hotel Opens in San Luis Obispo

The Kinney SLO offers multiple meeting spaces with creative twists.

A new hotel on California's central coast offers meeting space and some fun quirks. The Kinney SLO, which just opened its doors, offers groups several meeting rooms along, 100 guest rooms and a range of culinary and entertainment options. 

On the business front, the property offers a number of spaces that can accommodate meetings of up to 100 people. The Library is a multifunctional space with 1,200 flexible square feet, while the Gallery offers indoor/outdoor areas that can accommodate up to 60 in 835 square feet.  

The Kinney SLO's signature restaurant, Leroy's, offers a wide-ranging menu of dishes such as Tri Tip Bahn Mi, IPA Smoked Bacon Mac N Cheese, a Shiitake Basil Turkey Burger and is available for group bookings. Attendees can pour their own local beer and wine from the bar's ever-rotating self-serve taps, or build their own personalized tasting flights.

As for entertainment, the property's The Quad offers visitors memorable (and Instagramable) activities such as giant Scrabble and Lite Brite, not to mention areas for relaxing fireside, in the heated pool or on the sundeck.

The room design aims to appeal to younger professionals, with plaid carpets and full-wall collages with California images as well as hoodie-style bathrobes. Each room offers 55" HDTVs, mini refrigerators, Starbucks coffee makers and complimentary Wi-Fi. 

Located a mile from Cal Poly State University, the property plays on its college connections with a Grad Suite, Professor's Suite, and especially spacious Dean's Suite, each with separate living areas.  

The Kinney SLO is the second property by this boutique brand from Pacifica Hotels, following The Kinney Venice Beach's opening in 2016.
