Additional amenities will include a signature restaurant helmed by a world-class chef; indoor and outdoor bar and lounges; a well-appointed spa and fitness concept, and approximately 8,000 square feet of flexible meeting and event space.

Thompson Palm Springs will also offer more than 20,000 square feet of ground-level retail and restaurant space along Downtown’s iconic Palm Canyon Drive which will include, a 3,400-square-foot tasting room from owners Craig and Kathryn Hall showcasing selections from their family of wines – HALL, WALT and BACA.

Thompson Palm Springs will be led by general manager Jeffrey Miller. A Palm Springs local who has been enjoying the destination for decades, he joins the hotel from Andaz Scottsdale Resort & Bungalows where he served as GM for three years.

“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. “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.”

Thompson Palm Springs will build on Hyatt’s growth strategy in key leisure markets, joining 18 Thompson Hotels properties worldwide. Four additional properties are expected to open by the end of 2024 in destinations like Houston, South Beach Miami, and Monterrey, Mexico, as well as the brand’s entry into Asia Pacific in Shanghai.
