About this business
From Our Editors
Set amid a rugged desert landscape recalling the face of a distant planet, Palm Springs is an oasis of casual living and midcentury Hollywood glamour. The Uptown District constitutes the city’s cultural center. Three blocks from the Alcazar lies the Palm Springs Art Museum, whose permanent collection includes a mix of contemporary and western American art. The Uptown District’s central location between the glitzy Movie Colony and the architectural mecca of Las Palmas makes it rich grounds for touring on foot or by bicycle. Travelers can rent a bike to discover the homes and abandoned moonshine stills of old movie stars, or gawk at modernist gems such as Frey House II, a glass-and-concrete wonder. In the winter, visitors can go from lounging poolside to skiing in mere minutes. A five-minute car ride from the hotel brings travelers to the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, where rotating carriages ascend 2.5 miles over expansive views of the Coachella Valley before reaching Mount San Jacinto State Park.
