There are Hard Rock Hotels around the world, from Bali to Cancun, Singapore to Chicago and now Palm Springs.

"I know that through the years, they've done so much for different cities," Sherman's Deli manager Jesse Moreno said.
Setting up shop right next to Sherman's Deli in Palm Springs, the hotel hot spot promises excitement.  

"We're just going to be a walking distance away, less than a block away. Not only that but the venues and special events the Rock Café will bring will definitely impact us," Moreno said.

"It's exciting. Something that brings energy, more life,  brings more people out, it can only help local vendors and bring more people out here," Yogurt On Tap owner Jim Schreiber said.

The Hard Rock Hotel head of development wrote in a news release:

"Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs will serve as an iconic entertainment and leisure destination and, true to the Hard Rock brand, will be a hot spot for musicians, celebrities, and our valued Hard Rock fans."

With 160 rooms and almost 21 thousand square feet of ball room and banquet facilities, you can only imagine the fresh and fun events coming our way.

"Another reason to visit, there are so many things to do out here in Palm Springs, it just adds another reason to come here that's for sure."

The hotel is set to open this fall.
