Staying in downtown Palm Springs does not mean being dropped into the middle of a bustling metropolis.
But what it does mean is being immersed into the unique and diverse culture where resort town meets chic. You’ll find distinct treasures, souvenirs, and experiences in the distinct stores that line Palm Canyon Drive.
“Palm Canyon has such a treasure trove of unique, Mom and Pop owned stores,” says one of those owners, Laura Walsh of the Cocky Cactus. “You never know what you may find in the small alcoves or around the corners. Stores you’ve never seen. Local products you can’t get elsewhere. It’s fabulous.”
That’s why the Hyatt Palm Springs provides a convenient headquarters for walking the town’s main drag. An all-suite luxury resort, each room at the Hyatt has a whirlpool tub, in-room Pure Body spa services, a Yogaway program and a private balcony.
Each suite has its own parlour to relax and watch some TV or work in peace and quiet.

The walkability of the downtown area means you’ll want to relax afterwards in the Hyatt’s heated outdoor swimming pool with poolside cabanas, hot tub, and sundeck.
Check out the Hyatt’s Hoodoo Cocktail Garden for happy hour to indulge in a “PupuHooDoo Platter” and a Ginger-Spiced White Sangria.
VIDEO: Visit Crystal Fantasy and Enlightenment Center to find crystals, geodes, gems and minerals, among other gifts that embody spiritual inspiration and help those find a path to a higher power.
There is no lack of experiences available within blocks of the Hyatt ranging from historical markers like the McCallum Adobe to architectural gems like the former Coachella Valley Savings & Loan (now Chase Bank).
