Palm Springs Hotels
There are a wide range of hotels in the Palm Springs area - ranging from budget, to funky and young, to total luxury. What follows are my favorites.
Le Parker Meridian,
My favorite new hotel in Palm Springs. You'll feel like you're staying at your rich, eccentric aunt's home - not some corporate hotel - from the moment you arrive at the Parker hotel. Upon arrival, you'll be escorted through manicured gardens to your room. The funky decoration you see in the lobby doesn't stop when you step into your room - I loved all the Jonathan Adler designed accessories. The Parker Hotel also has four swimming pools (two outdoor & two indoor), extensive grounds, a full spa, tennis courts and more. The hotel restaurant is the perfect place for brunch - with one of the best breakfast menus anywhere. Opened Oct 2004
La Quinta Resort and
If you're looking for extreme pampering, or crazy about playing tennis and golf under the warm desert sun, La Quinta Resort is the place for you. This celebrity haven has extensive grounds, many pools, and a full spa. If you value privacy, you can rent one of the hotel's beautiful Spanish style casitas.
This 60's style motor hotel has a classic Palm Springs feel complete with tiki gods and Polynesian artifacts. The decorators managed to pull this off in a tasteful way making this a fun place to stay
Viceroy Palm Springs
It's hard to beat the downtown location of this funky, modern hotel. This small hotel packs lots of 1930's charm into its 64 rooms. Rooms are comfortably outfitted with Frette linens down comforters and pillows, and Molton Brown cosmetics. The bar downstairs is often crowded as is the delicious Citron restaurant
