PALM SPRINGS, CA—Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announced today it will expand its footprint in the Southern California market with the management of a new four-star hotel here.
Slated for a 2015 opening, the new construction, luxury hotel will feature 190 rooms and a rooftop bar and pool. Located in the epicenter of the city’s newly revitalized downtown on North Palm Canyon Drive, the hotel will also offer a chef-driven, destination restaurant and more than 24,000 square feet total event and meeting space, as well as picturesque views of the Mount San Jacinto State Park.
Kimpton was selected for the management contract by hotel developer and owner, Wessman Development Company. For Kimpton, the new Palm Springs property represents an important expansion of the brand’s presence in Southern California, joining existing hotels in Los Angeles (Hotel Palomar Westwood and the Hotel Wilshire), Santa Barbara (Canary Hotel) and San Diego (Hotel Solamar, Hotel La Jolla and the Hotel Palomar San Diego).
