IRVINE, Calif. (KABC) — It's nacho average hotel.

Taco Bell is taking over a hotel in Palm Springs, California, for three nights this August.

The fast-food chain says everything will be Taco Bell-themed, from the room decor to the breakfast menu to pool floaties shaped like hot sauce packets.

There will be a gift shop with Taco Bell gear, a salon with Taco Bell nail art and plenty of Taco Bell food and cocktails. A few new menu items will also debut there.

Irvine-based Taco Bell isn't saying yet which actual hotel is hosting the event. Reservations will be available starting in June.

The promotion is unusual, but not completely unprecedented. McDonald's opened a hotel in Switzerland in 2001, complete with golden arch-shaped headboards. It closed two years later.
