Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs to Make Fall 2017 Debut in California
June 29, 2017 11:58am
Soaring to new heights in Palm Springs is Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs, now accepting reservations in anticipation of its opening this fall. The seven-story, 153-room urban desert escape anchors the city’s major downtown revitalization project and features Palm Springs’ first and only rooftop pool, two restaurants and two bars, serene views of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, and inspiring spaces for meetings & events.
The first full-scale hotel built in the area in decades and Kimpton’s first project in the Palm Springs market, Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs is a celebration of the desert’s organic, rugged beauty artfully balanced with refined glamour and modern touchpoints. The hotel sits at the intersection of the high desert and local scene, where the base of the San Jacinto Mountains meets the center of the city’s best shopping, dining, outdoor pursuits and arts & culture scene.
“Palm Springs has stunning architecture and design, an inspiring landscape, and a stylishly cool spirit that’s exactly what the Kimpton brand is all about,” said Abe Liao, General Manager of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs. “With amenities like our rooftop pool – the first in the city – and several guestrooms with balconies, guests have a new way to stay and play in Palm Springs while still enjoying the desert’s authentic aesthetic and laidback vibe.”
A collaborative effort between Powerstrip Studio and the Kimpton Design Team, the design of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs is inspired by the resurgence of the Midcentury Modern movement, reimagined from a contemporary viewpoint while retaining the era’s essence, and infused with a playful beat. The light-filled spaces embody a sunny mix of minimalist, modern-desert urbanity with clean-lined furniture, custom art installations such as a 16-foot macramé owl behind the front desk and lobby-adjacent library display, grand staircase, and rooftop where six luxury cabanas line the pool. Subtly designed geometric patterns in an optimistic color palette – blues and greens in the guestrooms and pinks and oranges on the pool deck – are tempered with natural wood, creamy neutrals and white.
Guests can opt for Mountain View rooms with picturesque views of the San Jacinto Mountains, Balcony rooms with private outdoor terraces to chill and unwind, King rooms with a glass-walled bathroom offering views of the desert landscape, spacious Spa rooms with separate soaking tubs and glass-enclosed showers, and for the ultimate luxury stay three one-bedroom suites and a presidential suite, each with its own wraparound balcony.
Guests can get a genuine taste of Palm Springs throughout the property with treats by local purveyors in the Honor Bars and menus driven by locally sourced ingredients in the dining concepts. In the lobby living room, guests can enjoy a craft cocktail at Window Bar before heading out for the night or a nightcap before turning in. Juniper Table, a refined yet casual Mediterranean café, offers food & beverage for dining in or on the go. Perched atop the prime rooftop space is 4 Saints, an open-air bar and restaurant by day that transforms into an alluring environment after sundown and nightlife venue during peak season weekends.
For custom meetings, events and weddings, the hotel offers more than 5,000 square feet of multipurpose indoor and outdoor space including a ballroom, rooftop annex, and boardroom.
