Palm Mountain Resort & Spa has announced the appointment of Patty Davis as the new General Manager. She will oversee day-to-day operations of the 142-room hotel and lead community and tourism partnerships.
Managed by Columbia Hospitality, the resort is located in the heart of Palm Springs, just steps from famous Palm Canyon Drive, home to the city’s best dining, shopping and entertainment. The property offers an inviting pool and hot tub for all ages; a spacious hall; a spa offering rejuvenating massages and facials, and expansive outdoor relaxation areas with fire pits with a backdrop of the San Jacinto Mountains.
Davis has served as general manager at numerous Columbia Hospitality properties, most recently at the MarQueen Hotel in Seattle. She served as General Manager of the Indigo Seattle Everett Waterfront Hotel, an IHG hotel, where she hired and trained the management team and prepared them for the grand opening. She is also a Certified Hotel Administrator, the highest certification from the American Hotel & Lodging Association; and she previously served as secretary, treasurer and vice president of the Washington Hospitality Association. Along with his new role at Palm Mountain Resort, Davis will continue to serve as Area Manager for Columbia Hospitality.
“I am extremely excited to take on this new role and to work closely with the incredibly talented and passionate professionals who make up the Palm Springs tourism community,” Davis said. “I have overseen numerous hotel operations and look forward to leading the Palm Mountain Resort & Spa team as we continue to provide the best in hospitality to our guests.”
Originally from Olympia, Washington, Davis grew up around her parents’ family cafe. When his father passed away, Davis’ mother turned their shop into a hotel in memory of his father. His experiences growing up in the hospitality industry led Davis to find his passion for hospitality as a young adult. Now, in her spare time, she enjoys horseback riding, reading, spending time with her 22-year-old son, Griffin, and cuddling her rescue dog, Max, who will soon become Palm Mountain Resort’s mascot. She can’t wait to make Palm Springs her new home.
