❝ My eight month project was to Improve the marketability of the hotel, maximize value and increase the selling price; by providing enhancements that are designed to make the hotel stand out and be outstanding ❞  Interior Architectural Designer Domenique Mora 

The hotel was recently acquired by investors who now plan to put millions into the motel to transition it into the Infusion Beach & Hotel, “a luxury entertainment destination venue unlike anything seen in Palm Springs before,” according to a press release. 

Jim R. Hollenbeck, a spokesman for the property, said he was not yet allowed to reveal the complete renovation plans. However, the owners are working on new plans for a multi-million dollar renovation expected to take place this year in 2015.

The 124-room Hotel will close for the renovation, though that date has yet to be determined. And the number of rooms will be similar to the number of the rooms the hotel currently has, said Hollenbeck, who was not able to offer specifics on what type of restaurant or nightclub the Infusion would operate.

Several other hotels on the north end of Palm Springs have changed hands and been renovated or upgraded in the last year. The Palm Springs Hotel, nearly across the street from Toucan’s, is due to open any day now. The Monroe reopened a few months ago after transitioning from an Americas Best Value Inn.

" The area is ripe for becoming its own hip hotel district. The north end of Palm Springs is quickly becoming a hot spot for top-notch hotels and restaurants with many new projects in development, Investors really like what is happening in the north end and want to be part of that revitalization of the area.”  said Hollenbeck.

“ I dream of a new age of curiosity. We have the technical means for it; the desire is there; the things to be known are infinite; the people who can employ themselves at this task exist. Why do we suffer? From too little: from channels that are too narrow, skimpy, quasi-monopolistic, insufficient. There is no point in adopting a quasi- protectionist attitude, to prevent 'bad' information from invading and suffocating the 'good'. Rather, we must simply multiply the paths and the possibilities of comings and goings."

Philosopher Michel Foucault
