Parrothead Tourists Covered With Oil Have A Place To Flock In The Southern California Desert
Some people may claim their Margaritaville is in Palm Springs, but now they can have Margaritaville Resort to blame.
The Jimmy Buffett-themed property is open in a collaboration between hospitality brand Margaritaville and Davidson Hotels & Resorts as the Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs, CA.
It is the first Margaritaville to open on the West Coast, although two places are under development in San Diego, one in Mission Bay and the other in the Gaslamp Quarter.
“We are thrilled to be the first Margaritaville resort on the West Coast,” said Matt Huss, General Manager of Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs. “We look forward to welcoming our guests and providing a relaxing oasis to escape, unwind, and enjoy the laid-back desert life.”
That’s a feeling you get the second you step inside the property – the lobby has a giant blue flip flop in it.
The resort features 398 rooms with views of the San Jacinto Mountains or resort grounds from private terraces and patios, six Margaritaville-inspired restaurants, a huge St. Somewhere Spa, as well as space for weddings, meetings and events.
King and double queen rooms include premium Latitude, Chill Out, Hemisphere, and Paradise Suites as well as the crown jewel Jimmy Buffett Suite, a two-level, 1,761 square foot “sanctuary,” according to a press release.
It also has – of course – bars. The Lone Palm Bar is a flip-flop friendly, pool-side tiki bar, there is live music at the 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill and a License to Chill Bar. There are two pools, each with tiki-hut inspired cabanas.
So even if you don’t know the reason, you can stay there all season.
Margaritaville Resort Palm Springs replaces the former Riviera hotel.
