Dolce Hotels and Resorts to manage new hotel to be built in Palm Springs

ROCKLEIGH, NJ — Dolce Hotels and Resorts, operator of 26 upscale hotels, resorts and conference hotels across North America and Europe, will manage a new 200-room ‘urban lifestyle hotel’ to be built in downtown Palm Springs. The new address will be Dolce’s third in California.

“This project in the heart of Palm Springs will build our West Coast presence, enabling us to leverage established corporate, group and leisure relationships,” said Steven A. Rudnitsky, Dolce Hotels and Resorts president & chief executive officer.

Construction is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2014 and be completed by August 2015. Set on 10 acres on East Amado Road, across the street from the Palm Springs Convention Center, the hotel will include 15,000 square feet of flexible function space, landscaped outdoor event space, two restaurants, lounge, recording studio, screening room, outdoor pools, spa and fitness centre.

The Palm Springs project will be Dolce’s second urban lifestyle hotel following the January opening of The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel, a 209-room property with 16,500 square feet of function space in downtown Indianapolis. “Like The Alexander, A Dolce Hotel, the Palm Springs property will be more than a place to stay,” said Rudnitsky. “It will create a unique sense of discovery and place that inspires curious minds, intrigues the senses and stimulates our guests.”
