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.
