The resort also offers a fitness center, business center, three outdoor pools, and an 11,000 square foot spa with 18 treatment rooms. Circa 59, the resort’s signature Palm Springs restaurant, offers quality, eco-friendly seafood, boutique farm meats and locally-grown produce from the Coachella Valley. Bars and lounges at the resort, include the Starlite Lounge, the perfect spot for a classic cocktail or nightcap; Sidebar, a sophisticated bar and lounge with a resident mixologist; and two poolside bars.

An Independent League of its Own

Starwood’s 10th brand and second collection of independent hotels, Tribute Portfolio debuted in April 2015 with its first hotel, the Royal Palm South Beach Miami, and recently announced two new hotels, including the Great Northern Hotel in London, UK and the Kiroro Hotel, Hokkaido, Japan. Future locations are slated for Coral Gables, FL, Asheville, NC and Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Firmly anchored in the four-star, upper upscale category, the Tribute Portfolio brand allows owners of distinct properties to maintain their independent spirit, while benefiting from Starwood’s powerful distribution, loyalty and sales platforms. Starwood aims to grow the brand to 100 hotels by 2020, with locations in high-demand destinations and markets where SPG members travel.
