Visitors from Southern California’s coastal communities have the advantage of proximity being a few hours’ drive for a great escape to the desert oasis of Palm Springs. They come for the sunshine, outdoor adventures, fine dining and shopping, although where you rest your head at night is also a key factor in planning a stay. With more than 140 hotels in town that range from posh luxury resorts to boho boutique inns, you can have a different experience with each visit. Whether it’s an impulsive two-day getaway or a forward-thinking extended stay, visitpalmsprings.com has a long list of lush accommodations ready to open their doors and wow you with high-level hospitality.    

Palm Springs – Les Cactus

New this season are two unique boutiques, including the 11-room French Rivera-inspired Dive Palm Springs, as well as the fresh and fun Les Cactus landscaped with its namesake botanicals inside and out.   

Familiar favorites like Ace Hotel & Swim ClubARRIVE Palm Springs, and The Saguaro are known for their upbeat poolside parties with live music or DJ’s spinning a social atmosphere. Other 21 and up hotels like Villa Royale and La Serena Villas serve refreshing cocktails and mocktails at alfresco bars. Families, however, enjoy Hotel Zoso, which has an arcade in the lobby, and Hyatt Palm Springs not just for the spacious pools for kids to splash around, but also for the convenient location in the heart of downtown with nearby access to biking and hiking trails.

Those seeking solitude find the Moroccan and Greek Mediterranean themed Korakia Pensione a peaceful place to rise and shine and practice yoga on the outdoor platform. Parker Palm Springs and Riviera Palm Springs both have full-service spas on site to pamper guests with a massage or facial. Private outdoor soaking tubs at the Andalusian Court make for an amazing secluded retreat once you wind your way through the fountains and beautiful landscape maze to your room.  Another place for quiet self-reflection, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn, is where Dr. Albert Einstein dreamt and studied the starry constellations from a bench that bears his name.

Pet-friendly Sparrows Lodge and Caliente Tropics Resort welcome guests with their furry friends and you’ll often find dogs roaming the courtyards.

Midcentury modern fans appreciate the pure white low-slung bungalows at L’Horizon Resort & Spa in contrast to the colorful mod designs of Holiday HouseOrbit InMonkey Tree Hotel, and Del Marcos Hotel.    

Once you check in to any of these magical places it may be hard to leave, but make time to explore the equally boutique restaurants around town. Rooster & Pig serving Vietnamese fare, the extensive wine selection at Zin American Bistro, and vegan lunches at Azucar near a Frida Kahlo portrait are culinary delights you won’t find anywhere else except in Palm Springs.
