ARRIVE Palm Springs
What We Love
- Floating on the palm-studded pool while admiring the views of the San Jacinto Mountains
- Drinking a cucumber-and-grapefruit cocktail on a comfy armchair surrounding one of the poolside fire pits
- The hotel’s community-minded event series, including live music and DJs on weekends and monthly outdoor movies
What To Know
- Hate it or love it: most of the rooms have open bathrooms (only the toilet is enclosed)
- Colorful bikes are on hand to explore Palm Springs’ distinctive midcentury style
- Dogs under 40 pounds are allowed for a one-time $50 fee
- There’s no spa, but the hotel can recommend practitioners for in-room massages
Arrive’s maxim, “built for the neighborhood,” means that the brand’s properties were designed with both travelers and locals in mind. In Palm Springs, this is evident in a fun entertainment program that includes live music, DJ sets, and outdoors movies, and a series of food venues that celebrate local culture. The breezy main restaurant, Reservoir, epitomizes Southern California’s culinary scene with a mix of Asian, Mexican, and coastal flavor—we’re talking dishes like shrimp tempura with tamarind chili, sesame seed-crusted tuna burger, and carne asada with chipotle cream. There’s also an ice cream parlor doling out artisanal cones (“made by an actual human being,” the hotel jokes) and a coffee shop serving locally roasted beans. Every space takes cues from Midcentury Modernism—Palm Springs’ quintessential style—while keeping the vibe contemporary. Inverted roofs that slope upwards, known as butterfly roofs, run through the entire low-lying building, which features a palette of rusted steel, wood, and concrete. Each of the 32 guest rooms has panoramic views of the San Jacinto Mountains, tufted-leather armchairs and upholstered headboards, and open bathrooms stocked with Malin & Goetz products. Catering to tech-savvy consumers, the hotel communicates with guests mostly via smartphone: you can text the staff your room service order or ask them for insider recommendations.
In the Area
Arrive is located in the Uptown Design District, a stretch of Palm Canyon Drive that’s filled with shops specializing in all things midcentury modern. Stop by a La MOD to browse rare vintage furniture and home accessories, then get your Stumptown fix at Ernest, a local favorite for coffee and people watching. If you’re OK with a bit of a wait, head to Cheeky’s for one of the best brunch and lunch menus in town—the eggs are organic, the sausages are homemade, and the juices are freshly squeezed. Just a few blocks away, the Palm Springs Art Museum shows works from Marc Chagall, Pablo Picasso, Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein, Louise Bourgeois, and other luminaries. For dinner, head to the industrial-chic room at Workshop Kitchen + Bar, which offers solid farm-to-table eats and tasty craft cocktails. End the night at Bootlegger Tiki, a cozy lounge that specializes in handcrafted rum libations.
How to Get There
Great location and space for a casual meeting! Recommend for any offsite meeting, Staff was great to work with, food and drinks also! Location great in Spring and April weather was perfect. Sleeping rooms were very comfortable as well
Great hotel! Beautiful rooms, comfortable bed. The pool is for 21+ only which is perfect! And so is the temperature of the water. Bikes are free. Coffee shop & ice cream on site. The food is really good too. They have two places to eat. Super dog friendly. We usually go to the ACE hotel, but ARRIVE for us is the perfect, quiet getaway.
My boyfriend and I just spent two nights at ARRIVE and I cannot say enough great things about this hotel. The staff were all amazing and so friendly/helpful. The rooms were very clean and well-decorated. The pool was so nice and we never had a problem getting chairs to lay out on. Also plenty of umbrellas at the pool if you’re worried about shade. The drinks and food were all great, including the ice cream shop in the hotel! You also have to be 21 to stay here which means no kids are allowed on the property except for the restaurant, which for me was a huge plus. The only downside is that it’s a little bit of a walk to the main part of downtown Palm Springs (about a mile and a half) but we didn’t mind the walk since it was so nice out every day. All in all, a great experience, especially for the price and I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
Safes in room & closet to hang moor then 10 things with 2 in each room most old people would like regular bed but it was good for me. The people are great & service was great a place for the young or the young at hart I loved it.
My wife and and I had a great weekend at ARRIVE! We loved the architectural design throughout the resort. The pool and restaurants were all excellent! This was our first visit to Palm Springs and we can’t wait to come back.
