Rosewood Hotel Approved in Palm Desert

CREATED Aug. 26, 2011

PALM DESERT - The Palm Desert city council narrowly approved plans for a five star hotel.

Thursday night, the council approved plans for the Rosewood Hotel - in a 3-2 vote.

The hotel will be located on Highway 74 - south of El Paseo.

Many residents believe the hotel is too tall for the neighborhood but businesses believe the hotel would bring an economic boost to the city and more shoppers to El Paseo.

The hotel will be made up of two U-shaped buildings and will stand an average of 45 feet tall.
