Hotel are scheduled to start popping up next spring with the launch of ARRIVE– could this be an indication that the economy is really improving?
According to Greater Palm Springs, ARRIVE Palm Spring, a 32-room contemporary hotel from Ezra Callahan of Facebook fame, designed by Chris Pardo, will feature an open floor plan, a luxurious wet room and an abundance of natural light. More than half of the room will have private patios facing the pool, with outdoor fireplaces and daybeds.
