Developed by Selene International, in partnership with Dream Hotel Group, Dream Palm Springs will be a driving force in the ongoing revitalisation of downtown Palm Springs.

Located on the corner of Amado Road and Calle Alvarado, the 169-room hotel pairs executive architect Oswaldo D. Lopez with Hirsch Bender Associates (HBA) for design and is expected to open with 30 private residences, multiple experiential dining and nightlife venues and more than 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space in late 2019.

The groundbreaking ceremony for this exciting $100 million development took place this week, and featured Mayor Robert Moon as keynote speaker, as well as key members of the Dream team, developer Lauri Kibby and Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein, among others.

The opening of Dream Palm Springs is part of a larger economic development plan for the city of Palm Springs. With more visitors in recent history, the city is experiencing unprecedented economic growth. Dream Palm Springs is expected to generate tax revenue and create new jobs, while also offering the growing residential and business communities a new reason to work and play in the neighborhood surrounding downtown Palm Springs.

Dream Palm Springs will open with 169 rooms, 30 private residences, multiple restaurants and bars, and more than 10,000 square feet of flexible meeting space in late 2019. Ideally situated in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, the hotel”s presence will contribute to an important area of the city. It will support the local community and the 12.9 million tourists that come to Coachella Valley each year, adding another unique facet to Palm Spring”s iconic downtown district.

This November, the city of Palm Springs will see the official launch of its revamped ‘Downtown’, following a revitalisation project that has taken more than a decade in planning.

The multi-million pound development has already seen a number of restaurants, retailers and hotels open, with the eagerly anticipated opening of the new boutique hotel Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel still to come in October.

The project, overseen by Grit Development, will enhance the allure of the city, which is often referred to as ‘Hollywood’s playground’, attracting even more visitors to experience its renowned mid-century design, edgy Hollywood vibes, 350-plus days of sunshine and desert adventures.

Perhaps the crowning glory of the development, The Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs, whose design seamlessly mixes the brand’s luxury urban design with the mid-century modern characteristics of the city. Featuring 153 light-filled rooms, jaw-dropping views of the region’s desert oasis and the highest rooftop in the city, the seven-story building will be the first new build hotel in the city for a number of years.

Aside from indulging in the hotel’s design, rooftop pool, 4 Saints Restaurant, and dramatic vistas, guests will find plenty to entertain them within walking distance, including the Palm Springs Art Museum. For those looking for a little more adventure, the surrounding desert has the perfect day out, with the world’s largest rotating aerial tramway, the must-see Indian Canyons, off-road tours and range of hiking routes, to name but a few.

The downtown redevelopment has already celebrated the opening of women’s specialty clothing brand Free People, eclectic boutique Francesca’s, island-inspired Tommy Bahama Restaurant and Bar, along with a number of other brands.
