Art-filled contemporary bolthole in Palm Desert, featuring a backyard lawn, destination restaurant, and views of the mountains from almost every room
The first new-build hotel to hit Palm Springs in years shelves the area’s expected mid-century design aesthetic for something much fresher. Along with 150 rooms (kitted out with Carrera marble, modern art, and barn doors leading to oversize bathrooms), there’s a 50s-era Airstream trailer (one of the property’s nine suites), retro lawn games like cornhole and mini golf in the backyard, a rotating art gallery in the lobby, and a seven-room spa. Yes, you’ll still find your cabana-lined pool (you’re in the desert, after all) and local artwork lining the walls, as well as a chef-driven American restaurant and bar, AC3, serving up California-style dishes and craft cocktails and beers.
In the Area
When not sunning by the pool, there’s plenty within your Palm Desert surrounds to keep you busy. At The Shops on El Paseo, you’ll find a handful of designer boutiques, restaurants, and independent art galleries to lighten your wallet. Desert wildlife is the highlight at the Living Desert Zoo & Gardens, home to giraffes, cheetahs, zebras, and scores of cactus gardens. Of course, Palm Springs is just a half-hour drive north. It’s worth taking the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway up the 2.5 miles to the top of Mount San Jacinto, where you can hike trails leading to views out over the entire Coachella Valley, as well as booking a spot on one of the Palm Springs Architectural Tours, where you can see the city’s most notable mid-century Desert Modernism homes by legendary architects Neutra, Alexander, Clark and Frey.
How to Get There
My husband and I LOVED our stay! The hotel is absolutely gorgeous! But it is the staff that made the stay delightful! Warm, friendly, accommodating...welcoming. We attended a family wedding reception which was magical. Delicious food and amazing service, all perfect! We had a delightful time from start to finish!!
Beautiful hotel walking distance to amazing shops/restaurants in Palm Desert. Loved the modern/hip feel and the cornhole/jenga/connect-4 games available on the grounds past the lobby near the hotel/jacuzzi
I was in my best friend's wedding at the hotel and it was perfect! The staff were amazing, the food was so good and the location couldn't have been better. There was such a welcoming presence at the hotel coupled with "Instagram Vibes" perfect for photos. So fun, would stay here again.
Happy to report my second stay at Hotel Paseo was as great as my first! A few months back my wife and I stayed here and really enjoyed it. This time I brought a group of my friends and we had a blast! We enjoyed the pool, the pool bar, and especially hanging out around the outdoor fire pit in the evening. One friend got a massage at the hotel spa and said it was great! We had wonderful meals in the hotels AC3 Restaurant and each person tried a couple of the signature cocktails. The “Garden Bramble” and the “Crystal Clear” are great drinks! During the day we walked the main El Paseo Street and checked out some stores, including Tommy Bahama and the Tesla dealership, which are all within short walking distance from the hotel. Hotel Paseo has Tesla charging stations for its guests also, Nice! As always, the staff was 100% on top of everything. Great folks to talk with and service was top notch! If you get the chance to speak with Gil the Hotel Manager, do it - great guy! Can't wait to go back to Hotel Paseo. Next time we bring the Golf Clubs. They have a shuttle van that will take you to local golf courses. How great is that!
We found out the hotel’s Airstream Palooza Event/Party is this weekend on Saturday, 12/1/2018. They will have live music and dancing. Looks like a great Event!
Hotel Paseo is an excellent property in Palm Desert for many reasons. First, the location is excellent, with shopping and restaurants very close to the property.
The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, with a contemporary flair and terrific artwork. The pool area, while a bit small, is relaxing and we didn't have any problem finding lounges.
The staff at Hotel Paseo was outstanding! Special shout outs to Jose at the front desk who straightened out our reservation, and to Peggy the concierge for her excellent recommendations on restaurants and things to do.
When we're back in Palm Desert, we won't hesitate to stay here again!
