Practice Hospitality Selected to Manage Mojave Resort in Palm Desert

USA, Palm Desert, California. June 21, 2022

The 24-room Mojave Resort in the exclusive Coachella Valley enclave of Palm Desert has engaged Dallas-based Practice Hospitality to oversee hotel operations and spearhead upcoming renovation.

"We could not be more delighted to take stewardship of this desert gem, lead it through much-needed improvements and guide the hotel into a brilliant new chapter," said Bashar Wali, Founder and CEO of Practice Hospitality. "Infusing properties like the Mojave Resort with new life, handcrafting truly unique destination experiences and creating value in the real estate is a great example of the way we offer the hotels in our portfolio so much more than management."

Tucked away just one block off the town's dynamic main thoroughfare, El Paseo, the Mojave Resort was built in the 1940's and most recently updated at the turn of the last century. Now, it is being readied for a new renovation to begin in summer 2022. When completed this winter, updates will breathe new life into the hotel's guestrooms and dreamy private courtyard with improvements to the pool, spa, and seating areas as well as the addition of food and beverage offerings and amenities.

The California property joins the much-anticipated Drifthaven at Gearhart, a bespoke beach getaway opening on the Oregon Coast this month; Hilton Dallas Park Cities; and Conde Nast Traveler "Best in the South" award-winning Hotel Colee, an Autograph Collection hotel in Atlanta's Buckhead neighborhood, in the Practice Hospitality portfolio.

Food & Beverage: Remarkably Resilient

In the wake of the devastation that disrupted every aspect of their operations, the hotel food & beverage industry is proceeding with cautious optimism and a measure of hope as it re-emerges from the pandemic's darker days. It is also bringing forward all the lessons learned from the challenges that were faced, and integrating them into their current, day-to-day operations. For example, new digital interfaces that minimize physical contact, including tableside ordering systems and QR code menus. Here to stay are also features such as packaged room service meals and cocktails; on-property, quick-service food options; a greater emphasis on outdoor dining and pop-up restaurants; gourmet home meal kits; live-streamed cooking classes; and virtual wine-tastings. Still, some challenges remain, such as coping with a persistent labor shortage and maintaining scrupulous sanitation standards. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on what some leading hotels are doing to integrate these changes into their F&B operations as they rebound with a remarkable resiliency.
