Developed by Dallas-based Hall Group and designed by interior design firm B2 Architecture + Design and architect SMS Architecture, the property will feature guestroom bungalows surrounded by two outdoor pools, gardens, lounge areas and walking paths. Additional amenities will include a signature restaurant helmed by a world-class chef, indoor and outdoor bar and lounges, a spa and fitness concept and approximately 8,000 sq, ft. of flexible meeting and event space. It will also offer more than 20,000 sq, ft. of ground-level retail and restaurant space along downtown’s Palm Canyon Drive.

The hotel will join 18 Thompson Hotels properties worldwide, with four additional properties expected to open by the end of 2024 in destinations like Houston, Miami’s South Beach and Monterrey, Mexico, as well as the brand’s entry into Asia-Pacific in Shanghai.
