More than a name change, Hyatt Palm Springs has come home.

The downtown hotel, which has been a fixture since 1990, has reaffirmed its community roots, resulting in a name change from Hyatt Regency Suites to Hyatt Palm Springs.

“We are excited about the property’s conversion from a Hyatt Regency to a Hyatt hotel as it allows us to do what we do best: provide local knowledge, connection to the pulse of the community and personalized itineraries in a locale where our guests can easily get to their destination on foot, by bike or shuttle,” says David York, general manager.

As part of its rebranding, Hyatt Palm Springs has spruced up its public areas, including the pool area with new splashes of color, additional fire-pits and unique heat lamps to heighten the contemporary lounge-like atmosphere. Improvements to the porte cochere include new decorative heating and lighting at the front entrance and the addition of a "Palm Springs" mural by local artist Dean Mayo.

Restaurant changes include adding a Bruno pizza oven, fire-pits and other design elements to the popular outdoor Hoodoo Lounge. Plus, a new retro cocktail menu will debut, befitting the hotel’s – and area’s penchant for – mid-century architecture and design.

Additionally, Hyatt Palm Springs offers personalized approach amplified by its eConcierge service, allowing each guest to customize their experience prior to, or after their arrival. Do it all or do nothing at all – through Hyatt Palm Springs’ exclusive relationships with area attractions, recreational facilities, golf courses, restaurants, spas and specialty retailers, guests can create handcrafted vacation experiences and itineraries with the click of a mouse or the swipe of a screen.

“Our easily accessible and walkable location, spacious suites and customizable itineraries make the perfect combination for a stellar experience in the Coachella Valley,” says York.
