Transportation Information

The newly renovated Palm Springs International Airport (PSP) is about 5 minutes from the above hotels and the Palm Springs Convention Center. Numerous carriers from major cities serve the airport. There are several transportation options available to get from the airport to the hotels, including shuttle services, taxis, and ride-sharing services. 

Ride Sharing: For pick-ups, follow the Rideshare signage to the designated area located at the south end of the terminal (click here to see pick-up location), in the commercial lane across the street from WestJet Airlines.

Parking: The PSCC has a parking lot located east of the facility (Caballeros Lot) and southwest of the facility (Andreas Lot). Other surrounding parking areas and vacant land are private property; therefore, vehicles parked on such property are subject to removal at the owner’s expense.

Safety Measures

To meet the needs of the highest level of health and safety, the Palm Springs Convention Center is implementing a comprehensive and best-in-class program to provide the highest levels of cleanliness and safety, in partnership with leading medical professionals, industry experts, and public health officials. 

GBAC STAR™ is the cleaning industry’s only outbreak prevention, response and recovery accreditation for facilities. Palm Springs Convention Center is one of a few U.S. Convention Centers that are GBAC accredited. This is the gold standard of prepared facilities. This accreditation means that a facility has:

*Established and maintained a cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention program to minimize risks associated with infectious agents like the coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2).

*The proper cleaning protocols, disinfection techniques, and work practices in place to combat biohazards and infectious diseases.

*Highly informed cleaning professionals who are trained for an outbreak and infectious disease preparation and response.
