The Hotel Paseo, a Marriott Autograph Collection property, is the first new luxury hotel in Palm Desert in over 30 years, and well worth the wait.

The Boutique Hotel is Stunning in Carrara Marble

Dressed in polished white Carrara marble from floor to ceiling, it is cool, fresh and contemporary yet very comfortable and friendly. It serves as the perfect backdrop for a colorful, lively and imaginative art gallery curated by the Hotel from local artists.

What’s more, this boutique hotel has all the amenities of a larger resort. It boasts a sparkling crystal blue pool with a poolside cabana bar that serves up some of the coolest, most refreshing drinks in town. The raised fire wall will keep you mesmerized in the cool starlit evenings, and for those so inclined, a competitive round of Bocce can be great fun. 

Fitness fanatics can take in the high-tech Life Fitness gym, and then melt and recharge their batteries at Spa La Le.

If that’s not enough, world-class shopping, a myriad of fine art galleries, bistros, and a plethora of brasseries and canteens, will leave foodie’s giddy with delight.
