Hotel at a Glance: Desert Vacation Villas
Though the condos at Desert Vacation Villas have many amenities—including full kitchens—you’re not likely to spend much time indoors. The foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains make the perfect setting for outdoor activities. You might play ping-pong right outside your condo or pedal to a nearby golf course on one of the resort’s free-to-use bicycles.
- In-room amenities: bathroom, two bedrooms, and a private patio or balcony
- Go swimming in the heated outdoor pool, then relax in the outdoor hot tub.
- Walking distance to restaurants such as Rick’s Desert Grill.
- Dine alfresco using poolside barbecue grills.
- Take a short drive to tennis courts, canyon hiking trails, or casinos.
Palm Springs, California: SoCal Resort Town with Midcentury Charm
Palm Springs is an oasis of outdoor recreation and old Hollywood glamour about 100 miles east of Los Angeles. Once the stomping grounds of Elvis Presley and the Rat Pack, the town still attracts A-list vacationers. Strolls through the Movie Colony take visitors past the former homes of Dean Martin, Bob Hope, and Marilyn Monroe. Furniture and clothing boutiques along Palm Canyon Drive embrace Palm Springs’ trademark aesthetic—what might be called Mad Men West.
The sun shines more than 300 days a year in Palm Springs, which means people can golf or hike in the nearby Agua Caliente Indian Canyons no matter the season. On the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, cars rotate 360 degrees as they carry passengers to Mount San Jacinto’s Mountain Station, located 8,516 feet above sea level. About 40 miles northeast is Joshua Tree National Park, which spans parts of the Colorado and Mojave Deserts. The 12 nature trails give hikers the chance to see desert bighorn sheep and black-tailed jackrabbits.
