LOS ANGELES (November 19, 2009) – Tennessee-based Davidson Hotel Company, one of the largest hotel management companies in the U.S., has announced the long-awaited top to bottom multi-million dollar renovation of Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs will debut in December.
The 197-room, all-suite property is the only downtown deluxe hotel set on the main corridor of the Palm Canyon Drive strip. It has been a perennial favorite with both leisure and business travelers who enjoy the location’s stunning views of Palm Springs and San Jacinto Mountains and easy access to Palm Springs’ restaurants, nightlife, shops and galleries. With a sleek new design, sexy poolside lifestyle, indulgent cabanas and exquisite dining and cocktail options, the new Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs promises an entirely new sophistication and sleek, bold and modern style. Davidson and Rockbridge Capital are joint venture owners of the property, which Davidson also manages.
“Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs has always enjoyed a strong presence in the Palm Springs market due to its prominent location and longevity,” said Patrick F. Lupsha, Davidson’s chief operating officer. “Now with this major investment in the hotel’s future and a fresh, modern look, we will have made a significant and positive impact on the Downtown area and the destination as a whole.”

A complete remodel of the poolside area blends relaxing fire pits, custom made lounge chairs, and a redesigned second floor cocktail deck.
Upon completion of the hotel’s transformation, every one of its renovated
197 suites will boast a minimum of 606 square feet and include private
balconies, two 42-inch LCD televisions, Hyatt’s signature Grand Hyatt Bed™,
luxury marble bathrooms, separate living/working areas, iHome docking stations
and custom-designed furnishings and art. Nine cabana suites will offer

with the stunning natural beauty of Palm Springs, Hyatt Regency Suites
Palm Springs blends the best of all worlds – an urban setting with deluxe
amenities and a luxurious retreat with business-friendly facilities.
SHARE Wine Lounge & Small Plate Bistro, the new upscale casual restaurant featuring California fusion cuisine, will be led by Chef Maureen DeLapp. Drawing from her 25 years of experience, Chef DeLapp will be delivering a menu highlighting flavors and ingredients ideally situated for a communal experience. Dining at SHARE will invigorate the senses, stimulate conversation and bring people together.
For those lucky enough to be doing business in Palm Springs, Hyatt is proud to announce the addition of new meeting rooms and enhancements to the hotel's current meeting and banquet facilities.
