The Hyatt Palm Springs is the only all-suite hotel in the area, which I fell in love with. Word of advice to all hotels, be an all suite hotel. I honestly don’t want to stay in anything less going forward. It’s nice to get away, but a hotel room can be cramped and in this all-suite hotel, you have your bedroom, bathroom area, living room and balcony. We really made ourselves at home. In addition to the newly renovated suites, they also have new public areas, fire pits, a mural by local artist Dean Mayo, and a revamped Hoodoo Lounge.
Hotel associates are the most friendly, genuine, helpful, and fun people I have come across in a while. Many of them were locals with insider knowledge to share about Palm Springs. (We were so enthralled with the hotel, we didn’t want to leave the premises though). Overall, they made our stay so enjoyable.
Another great aspect of staying at Hyatt Palm Springs is that they are pet friendly. No one wants to leave their four legged friends at home when they travel. The Hyatt Palm Springs is happy to welcome all breeds and sizes of our furry family members. They even have a full-time Lobby Ambassador at the Hyatt Palm Springs, Chunk, a 3 ½ year old, 65 lb. purebred English bulldog.
Part of their revamp, the HooDoo Patio Restaurant & Bar, located on the front terrace of Hyatt Palm Springs is under the direction of the newly appointed Executive Chef James Wallace. You can enjoy wood-fired specialty pizzas prepared in the restaurant’s new brick pizza oven, as well as sip crafted cocktails while listening to live entertainment they have Thursday-Sunday.
Other highlights from the new menu include sharables like the HooDoo Fries drizzled with white truffle oil and Pecorino Romano; Black Bean Chili Nachos with black bean chili, chile-cheddar sauce, black olives and pickled jalapeños; and Kalbi BBQ Wings with HooDoo blue cheese dressing. Featured salads include a Shrimp Noodle Salad with poached gulf shrimp, bean sprouts, cashews and an Asian dressing, and the Chicken Salad with Dijon chicken, fresh seasonal fruit and berries, and banana bread.
Hyatt Palm Springs also has new packages, including the Thursday in the Village and the Romance Package. VillageFest is one of the most popular and long-standing weekly Thursday night events in downtown Palm Springs. It takes place June-September, 7-10 pm and October-May, 6-10 pm and lets you enjoy the farmer’s market, live music, over 200 artists, hand-crafted items, and unique food vendors weekly. You may be wondering where I am going with this. Ok, well, when you stay at Hyatt Palm Springs, you only to walk outside the front door of the hotel and, voila, you are at the The Thursday in the Village package, which includes a Thursday night stay, (good through June 2014; $139 per night/double occupancy) and a $25 food credit for the hotel’s new HooDoo lounge.
For the Romance Package, couples can indulge with a complimentary bottle of champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, a playful Kama Sutra gift set, breakfasts for two each day, as well as a late checkout. (good through 2015; $159).
