The hotel has 163 rooms and suites, a restaurant, “Rock Shop”, “Rock Spa”, lobby bar and a nightclub. The spa opens next month and the nightclub is slated for fall 2014. The original hotel was built in the late 70’s and came complete with a sunken living room in the lobby…score.
In keeping with the general vibe of Palm Springs, the owner of the hotel (franchisee) wanted to create quirkier and less corporate version of Hard Rock Hotel than exists in this branch of the Hard Rock’s portfolio.
To that end we selected memorabilia from younger artists as well as odd items from more established acts, hence the “Fun” sign from the band Fun.
