Azure Sky to Open in Palm Springs in Early 2022

Acme Hospitality and Eastern Real Estate, managing operators and owners (respectively) of a collection of boutique food, beverage and hotel concepts in Santa Barbara and Nevada counties, confirmed that their latest project, Azure Sky—a 14-room, 21 and over, luxury boutique hotel—is set to open this winter at 1661 South Calle Palo Fierro, in Palm Springs, California.

Originally built in 1959, the hotel is located in South Palm Springs. The property offers views of the San Jacinto Mountains and is enveloped by desert landscaping. Guests are within walking distance of the Ace Hotel, Bar Cecil, Villa Royale and other neighboring boutique hotels and restaurants.

Guests entering the hotel’s 800-square-foot lobby will be greeted by a cocktail bar and fireplace. From there, guests wind their way through the grounds to the pool, which spans 4,500 square feet and has a Jacuzzi. There’s also an open courtyard spanning 1,500 square feet besides a 2,500-square-foot "meadow" courtyard. Two fire pits, lounge seating and chaise lounges are placed on the south and north ends of the property. The hotel is ideal for celebrations of groups of up to 120 guests for buyout events.

The hotel’s 14 guestrooms range between 225 and 620 square feet, and include five spacious one-bedroom suites. Eleven guestrooms are equipped with private patios with hammocks and hangout spaces. Upgrades also include walk-in showers with white, green and dark mosaic tile; concrete sink counters; custom millwork; built-in beds; stone tile flooring; and mid-century inspired design accents, all using a neutral palette to express desert colors and a tranquil, cool vibe.

Morning coffee and continental breakfast are served in the lobby daily. Twelve of the guestrooms include small and fully equipped kitchenettes for ensuite cooking. The hotel will arrange reservations with nearby restaurants within walking or driving distance for guests preferring to dine off-property. A full bar will be open to guests in the lobby and will also service the pool.
