November 20, 2017 5:33am
PALM SPRINGS, CALIF. (November 16, 2017) – Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs makes a splash in the Southern California desert with its opening on November 17, 2017, reaching major milestones for the Kimpton brand and the City of Palm Springs. The seven-story, 153-room urban oasis features the city’s first and only rooftop pool, two restaurants and two bars, serene mountain and Coachella Valley views, and inspiring spaces for meetings & events.
A major anchor of the Downtown Palm Springs revitalization project and the first ground-up, full-scale hotel built in the area in decades, Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs puts guests in the heart of it all with convenient access to the rugged trails and peaks of the San Jacinto Mountains yet just steps from some of the city’s best shopping, dining, and arts & culture scene.
“Palm Springs is a dynamic city with its own distinct style, making it the perfect home for Kimpton,” says Abe Liao, General Manager of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs. “Whether our guests are here for a dose of local arts & culture, to take in nature’s beauty, or to attend annual events such as Coachella, Modernism Week or the Palm Springs International Film Festival, The Rowan looks forward to offering that great Kimpton service and great Kimpton care our guests have come to know and love.”
“Our mission from the beginning was to do more than build a standard box, but to create high-profile, architecturally significant new landmark buildings for Downtown Palm Springs,” said Michael Braun, President of Grit Development. “Kimpton solidly believes in our vision, and shares our commitment to redeveloping our city center for both the local community and Palm Springs visitors. We are all well on our way to leasing most of downtown, and we are thrilled with our great tenant mix and Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs as the cornerstone.”
The design of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs salutes the colorful midcentury heritage and modernism roots of Palm Springs, reinterpreted from a contemporary viewpoint. The structural design of Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs draws upon Palm Springs’ distinctive qualities of light, landscape and mountain terrain. Concrete blocks of the building’s exterior are punctuated with pop-out boxes and balconies to add dimension while perforated metal sunshading and filigree screening create the subtly transforming texture of shadow under the desert sun.
Kimpton The Rowan Palm Springs offers two restaurants led by Executive Chef Stephen Wambach – Juniper Table, a casual all-day Mediterranean café on the lobby floor, and 4 Saints, an intimate hideaway on the rooftop serving bold, internationally-inspired sharable plates. Local brews and specialty cocktails are available at either restaurant as well as both Window Bar, located just past the hotel’s entrance, and High Bar, perched atop the prime rooftop.
For custom meetings, events and weddings, the hotel offers more than 16,000 square feet of multipurpose indoor and outdoor space.
