Since emerging on the scene in 2018, this Marriott Autograph Collection hotel has garnered national acclaim for its midcentury modern design and luxurious four-diamond accommodations. Arriving guests are met with the glossy red sheen of a 1955 Cadillac Eldorado convertible, the first of many Instagram-worthy stops at a property that is quintessential “California cool.”
Taking full advantage of the desert sunshine, the hotel’s backyard space is home to morning yoga, lawn games, and private cabanas flanking the crystal-blue pool. Onsite Spa La Lé offers an array of rejuvenating treatments, including a 24-karat gold facial, while award-winning AC3 Restaurant + Bar serves up signature cocktails and delicious New American cuisine.
Guests are drawn to Hotel Paseo’s ideal location just off Palm Desert’s retail avenue and its proximity to golf, hiking, and other outdoor adventures. (Although you might never leave the grounds — the pool, bar, fire pits, and spa guarantee a stay full of relaxation.)
Retreat to a well-appointed guest room or one of nine specialty suites, most with private balconies. Rooms are bathed in soft gray, white, and light-blue tones; all include plush beds with fine linens and barn doors that open to luxurious, spa-inspired bathrooms.
A dog-friendly property, Hotel Paseo delivers a pampering experience for not only people but also for pups — complete with a chalkboard welcome sign, treats, elevated bowls, and cozy dog beds.
Those seeking a venue to host an unforgettable event can work with hotel staffers to plan a celebration for 10 to 300 guests on the event lawn, which features a beautifully restored 1950 Airstream trailer, or in the Grand Paseo Ballroom with catering by AC3.
