New Thompson Palm Springs to Open Later This Year

Hyatt has announced the forthcoming opening of one of its most exciting and highly-anticipated hotel projects, Thompson Palm Springs, that will join the brand’s award-winning luxury lifestyle Thompson Hotels portfolio as the second Thompson Hotels property in California.

Set to open later this year, Thompson Palm Springs celebrates the spirit of California’s famed desert destination with panoramic views of the San Jacinto Mountains and the city of Palm Springs, while bringing guests utmost luxury with multiple dining concepts, world-class amenities and a large retail space. 

Developed by Dallas-based Hall Group and designed by interior design firm B2 Architecture + Design and architect SMS Architecture, Thompson Palm Springs will feature a modern, mid-century design in the heart of the city’s iconic Palm Canyon Drive with elements inspired by the surrounding desert landscape and a custom art collection by Shore Art Advisory

“With design, art and entertainment at the heart of the Thompson Hotels brand experience, downtown Palm Springs is the ideal location for one of the brand’s newest hotels,” said Hyatt Vice President of Real Estate and Development Kimo Bertram in a statement. “Thompson Palm Springs will add to the growing number of properties within our Thompson Hotels brand portfolio throughout California and globally. We look forward to collaborating with Hall Group to introduce this new lifestyle hotel to the market that will epitomize the world-renowned sophistication and unique culture of Palm Springs.” 

The hotel will offer a collection of 168 bungalow-inspired guest rooms, including 18 suites, each offering their own private balconies or outdoor spaces to capture the breathtaking views. Surrounding the unique guest room bungalows will be two outdoor pools, gardens, lounge areas and winding walking paths to immerse visitors in the natural landscape of Palm Springs.

Guests will also enjoy additional amenities, including a mainstay dining concept from a nationally celebrated chef that will feed into the menus at two bespoke pools and accompanying lounges; over 20,000-square-feet of retail and restaurant space that will include HALL Napa Valley, a 3,400-square-foot tasting room from owners Craig and Kathryn Hall that showcases selections from their family of wines: HALL, WALT and BACA; an exciting new restaurant from the Los Angeles-based Boujis Group; a national spa and fitness center; and 8,000-square-feet of curated meeting and special event space. 

Thompson Palm Springs will be led by Palm Springs local and general manager Jeffrey Miller, who will oversee all operations and commercial strategies for the hotel after serving as general manager for three years at Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows. 

“We are excited to welcome guests and locals to Thompson Palm Springs, which will bring-to-life the iconic spirit of the destination through striking design, innovative culinary offerings and locally inspired guest experiences,” said Miller in a statement. “Palm Springs has always been a diverse destination where local culture is celebrated, and Thompson Palm Springs will embody this energy by serving as a dynamic home-base for guests, local tastemakers and emerging creatives to connect with each other and what inspires them. We truly desire to be a local’s destination.”
