Hyatt Regency Palm Spring
to undergo renovations

Tennessee-based Davidson Hotel Company has announced that a top to bottom multimillion-dollar renovation of the Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs will debut in December. The 197-room, all-suite property is set on the main corridor of the Palm Canyon Drive strip. With a new design, poolside cabanas and dining and cocktail options, the new Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs hopes to debut an entirely new sleek, bold and modern style.

Designed by the architectural firm Looney Ricks and Kiss, it’s expected that the full-scale transformation will bring new life to the downtown Palm Springs’ hotel. The property will shine with an indoor/outdoor pool bar, poolside cabana suites, a fine-dining restaurant, a 1,200-square-foot StayFit@Hyatt 24/7 gym and state-of-the art meeting space. A complete remodel of the poolside area blends relaxing fire pits, custom-made lounge chairs and a redesigned second-floor cocktail deck.

Upon completion of the hotel’s transformation, every one of its renovated 197 suites will feature a minimum of 606 square feet and include private balconies, two 42-inch LCD televisions, the signature Grand Hyatt Bed, luxury marble bathrooms, separate living/working areas, iHome docking stations and custom-designed furnishings and art. Nine cabana suites will offer guests poolside privacy and an indoor/outdoor living space on expanded outdoor terrace outfitted with overhead ceiling fan and lounge furnishings.

SHARE Wine Lounge & Small Plate Bistro, the resort’s new upscale casual restaurant featuring California fusion cuisine, will be led by Chef Maureen DeLapp.

For those doing business in Palm Springs, Hyatt also announced the addition of new meeting rooms and enhancements to the hotel’s current meeting and banquet facilities.
