Caters to Adults Architecture: Midcentury Modern


Please join us in celebrating the return of a midcentury gem at the portal to Palm Springs.  This 30 room boutique hotel boasting a new restaurant and bar is open to guests now, but will be hosting the official unveiling of the Cole Hotel (formerly the Bahama Hotel) on March 13th.  This classic midcentury masterpiece recently underwent a sympathetic and painstaking rehabilitation by new owner Mark Weis with the help of general manager David Smith, project manager Mat Rogers and a small army of building preservationists.  Constructed in 1959, with floorplan design by San Clemente draftsman Raymond Devore, stonework by mason John Francis Gallerani, and the hotel’s quirky modernist exterior design by local architect Hugh Kaptur, this renovation has captured the modernism roots and midcentury pedigree of Palm Springs.

This new dog friendly and adult only Cole Hotel boast 5 distinct spacious floorplans appointed with modern amenities like individual Nespresso machines, charming midcentury mahogany Victrola Bluetooth Stereos, retro bar fridges, nightstand charging ports, 4K Smart TVs and the Stearns & Foster Airdale-  the most comfortable bed you will ever experience. The rooms have been colorfully decorated in the “Palm Springs style” courtesy of talented local design firm H3K. All of our rooms offer breathtaking views of the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway with the majestic Mt San Jacinto as a backdrop or you can cast your eyes onto the guests frolicking in the new courtyard style pool uniquely designed to reflect the shape of the hotel. One the most impressive rooms in the house is our “Honeymoon Suite” which offers guests a spacious 600sf studio with wraparound windows and private balcony with views all the way to Joshua Tree and beyond. This suite includes a luxurious master bathroom with soaking tub and shower for two or more. You’ll wonder why you ever bothered staying anywhere else.

Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, upcoming wedding, a romantic getaway… or just looking for a relaxing enjoyable escape, this venue has it all. It is our goal to make the Cole an experience our guests will remember long after they have left this desert oasis. We look forward to seeing you soon.
