About a year ago we asked the question whether the Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage, hovering in hotel-limbo since the ’08 financial crisis, would ever recover to the point of having an opening date and welcoming paying guests.

Our answer is here today: the hotel will actually, finally, truly open on May 15, just over a week after fellow chronic delay case the Shangri-La at the Shard. 2014 is proving to be quite the good luck charm for these hotels.

The Ritz will have 244 guestrooms, starting with “Resort View” rooms at 450 square feet, going up to those with views of the surrounding mountains. All rooms have a private balcony or patio, but Fire Pit rooms have just that, for those chilly desert nights.

There will be two types of suites, and a Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge with the usual food presentations during the day.

Aside from a pool-side bar and casual eatery, there will be two restaurants: State Fare Bar & Kitchen, with Californian cuisine, and The Edge steakhouse. The Ritz-Carlton Spa will have 16 treatment rooms, a fitness center and indoor & outdoor yoga areas.

Reservations will open on March 17; we’d expect rates to start at $350 or so a night, going up during peak season, and potential deals to be had during the slower – and scorching – summer months.
