Get Ready for the Taco Bell Hotel in Palm Springs

Get Ready for the Taco Bell Hotel in Palm Springs

The fast food chain will open a cheeky pop-up resort in August

Posted 4 years agoby Katrina Hunt

Plenty of foodies choose their hotel based on the on-site restaurant, the wine cellar, or perhaps the property’s Michelin-star chef. But it’s also hard to deny the allure of serious comfort food on a California getaway, which may explain the palpable excitement over the upcoming pop-up lodgings of The Bell: A Taco Bell Hotel & Resort, set to debut in Palm Springs on August 9.

There is no word yet on which Greater Palm Springs hotel Taco Bell will occupy during its limited run in the desert, but the amenities were recently revealed, including (natch) Taco-Bell-based room service (both classics and exclusive menu items), a gift shop, and even a salon, offering both nail art and a “braid bar.” The chain has dabbled in full-service experiences in the past, offering Taco Bell–themed weddings in Las Vegas.

“The Bell stands to be the biggest expression of the Taco Bell lifestyle to date. It will be fun, colorful, flavorful and filled with more than what our fans might expect,” Taco Bell’s Chief Global Brand Officer Marisa Thalberg says. “Also, this hotel brings something entirely new for lucky fans to experience and enjoy.”

Fun fact: Taco Bell was actually born in the Los Angeles area in 1962, with its first location in Downey (which is also the hometown of “Weird Al” Yankovic).

The hotel will start taking reservations on a still-TBD date in June: You can get on the email list to be first in line. Leave the kids at home, too: The hotel will only be for ages 18 and up.
