Palm Springs, California will see further improvements in its accommodation portfolio with news that its Ivy Palm Resort will be transformed into the Welwood Hotel next year, a property that will tap into the city’s rich history and pay homage to Palm Spring’s first hotelier, Dr Welwood Murray. Renovations on the property, which is expected to reopen in 2020, have now begun, starting Oxygen Hospitality’s transformation of the hotel.
Inspired by the mid-twentieth century modernist architecture that Palm Springs is renowned for, the hotel’s redesign is described as angular and artistic, featuring colourful motifs for the outside pool. Renovations of the 100-room, three-acre property will include new guest rooms and suites, featuring clean palettes of neutral and aqua shades, complemented with sleek, rich, modern furnishings. The lobby will be relocated, while the entrance will be redesigned to feature an exterior circular entry. Completing the properties enhanced offering will be a new restaurant / bar concept and two remodelled pools with cabanas.
The hotel has been inspired by the great legacy of Dr Welwood Murray, who not only built the city’s first hotel in 1886 but was also a key founding philanthropist and a local favourite within Palm Springs.
Reservations anticipated to open in November 2019.
