3 Reasons to Love Palm Springs

I love the heat…period. There something to be said about that California sunshine, it’s just good for the soul. When my in-laws invited us to Palm Springs for the weekend, I didn’t jump or hop, I ran at the opportunity. I have visited Palm Springs many times, and each time I fall in love again with the mid-century architecture and the hip little town. There are so many reasons why I think Palm Springs is a perfect weekend getaway. Here are my top 3…

01. Hip Boutique Hotels

Finding a great boutique hotel is always on my radar. I am constantly on the lookout for new ideas to improve the boutique hotels that my family and I own and operate in Montana. There are many excellent choices in Palm Springs.  Here are 4 of my favorite and unique places to stay…


The Parker {chic, great pools, great restaurants}

Ace Hotel & Swim Club {trendy, great party scene, great pool}

Ingelside Inn {like stepping back in time, classic celebrities stayed here}

L'Horizon {luxury, great place to relax, delicious cocktails}

Saguaro {fun, colorful, good pool, great rates}

02. The Arcitecture

Palm Springs is the mecca for mid-century modern architecture.  Just driving through the historic parts of the valley takes you back to the days of Sinatra and the Rat Pack.  Many brilliant architects made their mark in Palm Springs in some form.  A touch of history is sketched into every residence, public building, and even into the schools.

03. The Weather

The weather in the greater Palm Springs area is phenomenal.  Well, I should say it’s that way 99% of the time. We hit the tail end of the huge storm that just moved across California, but other than our first day, it was blue skies all the way.  With a trip here, you are guaranteed to find sunshine, a pool, and a delicious cocktail, or two.
