Thompson Hotels to debut in Palm Springs this year

The Thompson Hotels brand is to make its debut in Palm Springs, California, at the end of 2023 with the opening of the 168-key Thompson Palm Springs.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has revealed plans for this forthcoming property under the luxury lifestyle Thompson Hotels brand. The Palm Springs property will celebrate the spirit of its locale.

A design-led property

The second Thompson Hotels property in California, Thompson Palm Springs is on track to welcoming its first guests towards the end of 2023 with luxury lifestyle space offering panoramic views of the city and San Jacinto Mountains.

This highly anticipated hotel is being developed by Dallas-based Hall Group and designed by the interior design firm B2 Architecture + Design, along with the architectural practice, SMS Architecture.

“With design, art and entertainment at the heart of the Thompson Hotels brand experience, downtown Palm Springs is the ideal location for one of the brand’s newest hotels,” said Kimo Bertram, vice president of real estate and development, Hyatt.

“Thompson Palm Springs will add to the growing number of properties within our Thompson Hotels brand portfolio throughout California and globally. We look forward to collaborating with Hall Group to introduce this new lifestyle hotel to the market that will epitomise the world-renowned sophistication and unique culture of Palm Springs.”

A new lifestyle hub

On opening later this year, Thompson Palm Springs will accommodate guests in bungalows that are set amid gardens with lounge areas, two outdoor pools and winding walking paths, all designed to immerse guests in the natural landscape.

Amenities within this space will include a signature restaurant helmed by a world-class chef, both indoor and outdoor bar and lounge areas, well-appointed wellness space and around 8,000 sq ft of flexible event space.

In addition to these amenities, the property will encompass more than 20,000 sq ft of ground-level restaurant and retail space, including the 3,400-sq-ft HALL Napa Valley wine tasting room, on Downtown’s iconic Palm Canyon Drive.

This exciting new property will be led by general manager Jeffrey Miller. “We are excited to welcome guests and locals to Thompson Palm Springs, which will bring-to-life the iconic spirit of the destination through striking design, innovative culinary offerings and locally inspired guest experiences,” he said.

“Palm Springs has always been a diverse destination where local culture is celebrated, and Thompson Palm Springs will embody this energy by serving as a dynamic home-base for guests, local tastemakers and emerging creatives to connect with each other and what inspires them. We truly desire to be a local’s destination.”
