Modern Paradise


284 South Indian Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262

Drift Palm Springs brings Baja style stateside to downtown Palm Springs, Southern California’s sun-soaked desert paradise. The property is located in the heart of downtown Palm Springs on Indian Canyon Drive, a 5-minute drive from Palm Springs International Airport, 2 hours from LAX, and a short drive to Coachella, Palm Desert, or Joshua Tree National Park. It’s the ideal place for fine dining, evening strolls, and desert adventure.

Featuring forms and colors reflective of the Californian desert and the brand’s Baja roots, the property couples Spanish Colonial and Moorish Desert architecture with organic interior accents and Mexican artisanal décor. Drift offers spacious suites, with one to four-bedroom layouts, full kitchens and living areas, and balconies or patios. Enjoy spectacular views of the San Jacinto mountain range or Drift’s resort-style pool, where daybeds, cabanas, and loungers invite sun and relaxation.
