Hard Rock International this spring is opening a second property in California, this time in Palm Springs, joining the Hard Rock Hotel San Diego. The company, in collaboration with Kittridge Hotel Management, will renovate the former Hotel Zoso with all the accouterments of the Hard Rock brand.
“We're thrilled to bring the Hard Rock experience to this world-renowned city and are very pleased with our new relationship with Kittridge Hotels,” said Nelson Parker, head of development in the Americas for Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos. “Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs will serve as an iconic entertainment and leisure destination and, true to the Hard Rock brand, will be a hot spot for musicians, celebrities and our valued Hard Rock fans.”
The 160-room property will offer a VIP rock star suite; Rock Spa; Body Rock workout facility; the Rock Shop featuring Hard Rock merchandise; myriad dining options, a lobby bar, and outdoor spaces for cocktails and lounging.
The hotel will feature 20,500 square feet of ballroom and banquet facility space and an @Biz Business Center. Like all Hard Rock properties, Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs will feature live entertainment and host such musical festivals as Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals. Music memorabilia will the hotel walls.
