The Palm Springs Hotel. The name itself evokes timelessness. Tradition. The elegance of the original. Yet this is not the oldest hotel in America’s hottest resort destination, it is the newest. The Palm Springs Hotel was conceived by four elite Hollywood families, who had searched for the perfect, intimate vacation retreat, but couldn’t find it. So they did what creative and resourceful people do: they built it themselves.

Premiering soon, The Palm Springs Hotel promises to be the ultimate Palm Springs boutique experience. The desert-modernist architecture, bold interior flair, and the 21st century appointments like Apple TV evoke an unforgettable sense of storytelling and design. It’s a love of Midcentury tradition infused with a Newcentury passion. It’s for people who appreciate the unique, the artistic, the best. Like those who built it, it’s for people who work hard to have their playtime count for something. This is where it counts.
