The Lodge at St. Edward Park, the landmarked former Kenmore seminary being renovated by Daniels Real Estate, is now slated to open in May. And Columbia Hospitality announced that it will manage the 84-room facility, with general manager Jenne Oxford, who previously worked at Kimpton and managed the Alexis Hotel in Seattle and other properties.
Amenities of the luxury hotel will include the Cedar + Elm restaurant (with outdoor patio), two bars, Spa Vita Nova, fitness center, and 12,000 square feet of indoor events space. The park also has many walking trails and waterfront access.
Originally developed in 1931 to train Catholic priests, the vacant building was sold to the state in 1977; it's now part of the 316-acre Saint Edward State Park.
