The Kimpton Rowan Hotel recently opened in downtown Palm Springs (just 3 months ago). We stayed at the hotel on our recent trip and were really impressed with the hotel. We especially loved the 360-degree views from the rooftop pool and patio. We loved the extra touches that made our stay particularly nice including complimentary custom rental bikes for exploring town, a house car service, a nightly wine happy hour in the lobby, and coffee and tea in the lobby in the mornings. The rooms are spacious and modern, and the service was friendly.
The Kimpton Rowan is perfect for the traveler looking for a luxurious, modern desert retreat that is walking distance to all of Downtown Palm Spring’s restaurants, shopping, and nightlife. If you’re looking for a more secluded adult-only resort, we’d suggest the Avalon Hotel, Sparrows Lodge, or Holiday House.
Even though the Rowan is in the middle of Downtown Palm Springs, the rooftop pool makes the hotel feel like more of an escape than it actually is. It’s the perfect spot to soak up the desert sun and enjoy a cocktail before heading out on the town–or not. If you prefer to stay in, the hotel offers several dining options, including a casual lobby restaurant, the Juniper Table, a rooftop restaurant, 4 Saints, and swanky lobby bar. We tried cocktails both poolside and after dinner at 4 Saints and everything we tried was very good.
