5 of the Coolest Places to Stay in Palm Springs

Palm Springs Modernism Week took over our Instagram feed with a sea of colorful mid-century architecture snaps from some of our favorite bloggers: Kelly Golightly, Design Milk, Studio DIY, 100 Layer Cake and more. All this eye candy has gotten us in the mood for a little weekend getaway and it just so happens to be the best time of year to visit Palm Springs, before the desert heat takes over. For anyone in need of a little R&R in the desert here are some great places to kick back and relax (mojito in hand):

1. The Saguaro – Bursting with colors at every corner, the Saguaro is one of our favorite Joie de Vivre hotels and a must visit in Palm Springs. Relax by the pool and don’t forget to take one of their complimentary bikes out for a cruise around the neighborhood. The infamous #thatpinkdoor is just around the corner (pictured above)!

2. AirBNB – This Wexler house is all over our Pinterest Decor + Design board and we’re dying to check it out. It’s mid-century modern heaven!

3. The Parker – If you’re looking for a little modern luxury, the Parker Palm Springs won’t let you down. The hotel restaurant Norma’s has one of the tastiest brunches in town. Think Banana-Macadamia Nut Flap Jacks, house made doughnuts with lemon custard and blueberry jam, and for big spenders, the “Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata” served with Sevruga Caviar.

4. The Ace Hotel – We’re big fans of the Ace Hotel chain and spent our last company retreat at their DTLA outpost (more on that trip here). Complete with retro furniture and their signature photo booth, it’s a fun, hip hangout with a year-round pool party scene.

5. Del Marcos Hotel – For peace and quiet, you can’t beat the “no-kids allowed” Del Marcos Hotel. This quaint vintage locale is just one block from downtown Palm Springs and opts for subtle fifties music over the DJ party scene you’ll find at the Ace Hotel. Pets are warmly welcomed and receive amenities of their own, including doggie treats, toys and food and water bowls.
