Four Star Kimpton Hotel Planned for Downtown Palm Springs

The hotel, which is expected to open in 2015, will have 190 rooms, a rooftop bar and pool, restaurant and more than 24,000 square feet of event and meeting space, city spokeswoman Amy Blaisdell said.

San Francisco-based hotel and restaurant company Kimpton will manage a four-star hotel to be built on North Palm Canyon Drive in downtown Palm Springs, a city spokeswoman said today.

The hotel, which is expected to open in 2015, will have 190 rooms, a rooftop bar and pool, restaurant and more than 24,000 square feet of event and meeting space, city spokeswoman Amy Blaisdell said.

Blaisdell said Kimpton was chosen for the management contract by hotel developer and property owner Wessman Development. Kimpton operates 58 hotels and 67 restaurants, bars and lounges in 24 cities around the country, including Los Angeles, Santa Barbara and San Diego.

"It's exciting for us to be part of the city's downtown revitalization as the first new construction property in the area since the late 1980s," said Kimpton CEO Mike Depatie. "We're confident that we'll bring something unique to the city as it continues to evolve as a tourist and group travel destination."

Palm Springs Mayor Steve Pougnet said city officials "are thrilled that Kimpton Hotels has partnered with Wessman Development to bring a four-star hotel and rooftop bar to the heart of downtown."

I've stayed at many Kimptons hotels--Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas, and New York. Each had a unique feel and were well maintained. They offer evening wine receptions and do not charge for pets----they even offer a pet welcome gift upon arrival. Kimpton is a great hotel chain and I'm excited they will be in Palm Springs.
