Story behind the name. Welwood Hotel draws inspiration from the pioneering spirit and vision of Dr. Welwood Murray, who left an indelible legacy in beautiful Palm Springs, also known for its healing powers. A Scottish pioneer, horticulturist, philanthropist and founding father, Dr. Murray was also a hotelier, opening the city’s first hotel — the Palm Springs Hotel in 1886. That hotel, built on 5-acres of land in Palm Valley (which later became Palm Springs), was a one-story ranch style building, designed by Murray, that accommodated 26 guests.
The 100-room rebranded hotel will revere Palm Springs’ historic past while focusing on today’s amenities to the delight of global guests. Tourists will enjoy a mid-century modern hotel to relax, unwind, eat and experience the wonders of this one-of-a kind city. A popular getaway and located just 100 miles from Los Angeles.
Enter the newly designed hotel lobby and sit down to check-in with our specialists at conversational tables. Enjoy a sneak peek outside to our two sparkling pools and new bar area.
Using Murray’s first name, Welwood, there’s a personal approach to this historic figure. The name contains the words ‘Wel’ and Wood’ suggesting a sense of wellness befitting the area and the natural design elements planned within the hotel.
Owner-operator hospitality management company, Oxygen Hospitality is executing this vision and will soon unveil the hotel. A place to enjoy the desert, view the magnificent mountains, discover good local food and drink, and stay in a friendly, pleasing property.
We’re breathing new life into the Palm Springs hotel scene.
