Hotel Palomar planned for Palm Springs to up room count

According to The Desert Sun, the new Hotel Palomar planned for downtown Palm Springs, Calif., will now have up to 188 rooms instead of the initial 165 proposed. The increase is reportedly being made to satisfy officials with the Kimpton Hotel & Restaurant Group, which will operate the property. "They came back and told us that we were exactly at the bottom of the curve," said John Wessman, of the Wessman Development Company, which is leading the development of the 13.2-acre site spanning mostly the area south of the Hyatt Regency on Palm Canyon Drive down to Tahquitz Canyon Way.

The hotel company wanted more revenue-earning rooms to shore-up its operational costs, Wessman told the Palm Springs Planning Commission on Wednesday in a work session to introduce the group to the public-approval process.

The added rooms would not become part of the main hotel building, but would be added as a three-floor addition to a nearby retail building and would be connected to the main hotel via an overhead glass-enclosed walkway, according to updated drawings presented at the meeting.
