New Hotel Coming to El Paseo in 2017

Posted: Updated:
Palm Desert, CA -

A new hotel is soon coming to the desert's most popular shopping district and people are excited about the changes it could bring. Hotel Paseo will be opening in Palm Desert and will be opening its doors in early 2017.

 The new hotel will sit in the heart of the famous shopping destination, El Paseo. According to the city, the hotel will help create a vibrant, walkable downtown. The new four-star, 150-room hotel is the first of its kind on El Paseo. It's  a Marriott Autograph Collection hotel which will feature a pool, spa, dining and ballroom. A restaurant and a meeting room will also be part of the new construction.

Palm Desert city officials celebrated the groundbreaking for the new hotel on Friday morning. According to the city, the hotel  will be opening in two years and will be located on El Paseo and Larkspur Lane, right across The Gardens on El Paseo. The hotel will boost the city's economy with 200 permanent jobs and by attracting tourists, experts said. People are excited about having a hotel right on El Paseo. "We need a hotel right here where people can enjoy El Paseo, they can walk right out do shopping, get great food, enjoy the weather and not have to get into a car," Palm Desert resident Sue McCall said. Many argue the hotel will attract even more tourists. "I think it could bring some good people. They get to look at this awesome new boutique hotel opening up in a fancy area on El Paseo and people are going to shop and visit us," Palm Desert resident Landon Morris said.

According to city officials, they had been planning the project for years to improve one of Palm Desert's major attraction. "This gets somebody the opportunity to now actually stay right within steps of that shopping district," City of Palm Desert’s Economic Development Manager Ruth Ann Monroe said. Hotel Paseo guests will enjoy a comfortable stay and El Paseo's boutiques, galleries and restaurants, she said.

The hotel was designed by Westwood-based architectural firm Gene Fong & Associates, with interior design by Los Angeles-based Kay Lang & Associates. The project is being built by Indian Wells-based Watkins Landmark Construction.
