Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced today that the severely delayed Thompson Palm Springs will open by late 2023. The hotel was originally supposed to be an Andaz and open in 2020. With the pandemic, supply chain issues, and other delays it changed to the Thompson Palm Springs and was supposed to open in 2022. That date was missed and early 2023, then summer, and now late 2023 have been released as opening dates.
Thompson Palm Springs is expected to open in late 2023. It’s located in the Design District and will offer panoramic views of the San Jacinto Mountains and the city of Palm Springs. The hotel’s unique guestroom bungalows will be surrounded by two outdoor pools, gardens, lounge areas, and walking paths. This will immerse visitors in the natural landscape of Palm Springs. A signature restaurant, indoor and outdoor bar and lounge spaces, a spa and fitness center, as well as around 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space.
The 168-room Thompson Palm Springs will build on Hyatt’s growth strategy in key leisure markets. It will join 18 Thompson Hotels properties worldwide, with four more expected to open by the end of 2024 in Houston, South Beach, Monterrey, Mexico, and Shanghai. The hotel’s location will provide easy access to the Palm Springs’ arts and culture scene, which includes museums, art galleries, boutiques, bars, and restaurants.
Anthony’s Take: Palm Springs needs a new points-earning property in the Hyatt portfolio. The existing Hyatt is dated and this will bring an upscale choice to the city (once it eventually opens).
