"Celebrity lawyers Mark Geragos and Brian Kabateck have bought The Curve Hotel and Resort in Palm Springs.
The legal duo plan to "extensively renovate and re-brand the hotel for a grand opening in December 2015," according to a news release.
"With the help of a talented design team and experienced new operator, we intend to redefine the lodging market in Palm Springs," Kabateck said in a statement.
The Curve — a 155-room hotel on East Palm Canyon Drive, with rates as low as $56 a night — was re-modeled and re-branded two years ago. It transitioned from a Travelodge persona and began marketing itself to a more chic, hip crowd, much like its neighbors Ace Hotel Palm Springs or the Saguaro Palm Springs."
