Known as a city where “snowbirds” come to escape the cold of winter, Palm Desert is adding a new place for them to relax in. Hotel Paseo, the newest venture in Palm Desert, invites you to check in for a stay at its establishment. Nestled in the Coachella Valley, Hotel Paseo is the first luxury hotel to be built in Palm Desert in 30 years. The Autograph Collection hotel contains an array of amenities and experiences to guarantee that you’ll have an enjoyable time. “[Ten years ago], our owners saw that there was something missing in the El Paseo shopping district; they thought that a luxury hotel could anchor and complement the shopping area,” said General Manager Gil Reyes.

Described as an “homage to the effortless style of the Golden Era” by Reyes, the hotel is meant to provide a warm and fun environment that “empower[s] visitors and locals to find their path.” Inside the hotel, guests can check into one of the 150 rooms or the renovated 25-foot vintage 1950s Airstream Cruiser trailer located on the backyard lawn. All rooms are decorated with local artwork and equipped with smart TVs to stream Netflix, Hulu Plus, Pandora and YouTube. “It’s uniquely in a position to incorporate modern technology to the overall guest experience,” said Reyes.

Along with the lodgings, the hotel boasts a spa, restaurant, fitness center and pool. At the spa, you can relax with couples massages, manicures and pedicures. To eat, guests will be served breakfast, lunch, dinner and happy hour at Chef Andrew Copley, Juliana Copley and Tony Marchese’s AC3 Restaurant + Bar, which specializes in new American cuisine with global twists and serves cocktails, California craft beers and wine. The hotel also has an expansive workout room featuring new equipment, bicycles, morning yoga and tai chi classes as well as a pool to help guests burn off a few calories. After swimming a few laps, you can treat yourself to the cabana bar or play lawn games with the bocce ball court, cornhole or shuffle board.

If you decide to venture out and soak in the desert sun, the hotel is located right in the premium shopping, dining and art gallery destination of El Paseo. Reyes recommends that visitors also watch performances at the McCallum Theater, see animals at The Living Desert and play golf at Desert Willow Golf Resort, as all three will have a partnership with the hotel.

With all these incredible amenities close at hand, what are you waiting for?

Dream Stream: To expand the workout room, the hotel added the 1950s Airstream Cruiser for extra lodging. The trailer was restored by David Winick and will undoubtedly be a signature element of hospitality (and Instagram posts).

Block Party: Every first weekend from November to May, Palm Desert hosts a city-wide celebration event that features art and cultural activities.
