Palm Springs Vacations
Top Hotels in Palm Springs
Embarking on a Palm Springs vacation is the first step in experiencing true relaxation. But before you slip into your favorite pair of sandals and pull your sunhat out of storage, you’ll need to reserve one of many inviting Palm Springs hotels. After a day of exploring Southern California and getting your daily dose of vitamin D, there’s no better feeling than settling into one of our recommended sumptuous accommodations:
- Marriott’s Shadow Ridge: This stylish Marriott property is perfect for any Palm Springs getaway. The property boasts both intimate rooms for romantic jaunts and sizable villas for the whole family. No matter what type of sojourn you’re taking, you’re bound to soak up some quality rest and relaxation on the resort’s pristine golf course.
- Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs: Offering a fresh and fun restaurant, a luxurious pool, and fitness and spa amenities for all guests, you might be tempted to spend your entire vacation at your accommodation. When it’s time to depart from the Hard Rock, you’ll be conveniently located just two miles away from the Palm Springs International Airport.
- Omni Rancho Las Palmas Resort & Spa: With sweeping views of the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains, you’ll feel that you’ve been transported to rugged California backcountry. That is, until you immerse yourself in the pampering spa services offered by the resort. Let the self-love continue by transporting yourself two miles to the McCallum Theatre–because you’ll really feel the benefits of your massage sinking in as you watch a live show.
- Agua Caliente Resort Spa: Spacious rooms, flat screen televisions, oversized tubs, and modern furniture are just a few things to love about the Agua Caliente. Not to mention the two pools, a Jacuzzi, and massive casino on the resort’s property. When you manage to pry yourself away from the casino buffet, steer yourself to the nearby Mission Hills Country Club for a day of swinging on the green.
No vacation in Palm Springs would be complete without spending copious quality time outdoors. Pack your favorite pair of running shoes and hit the trails around the palm-tree-lined Palm Canyon. Those looking to enjoy the sunshine without working up too much of a sweat will prefer the moderate paths available at Murray Canyon, and hikers who embark on the trail at Tahquitz Canyon will be greeted by a waterfall that feels closer to a mirage than reality at the end of their workout.
Romantic vacation in Palm Springs don’t have to be all sport and no speculation. Brush the desert dirt off your pants, don your favorite pair of sunglasses, and visit Palm Canyon Drive. As Palm Springs’ main street, Palm Canyon Drive is lined with designer boutiques, trendy souvenir shops, and mouthwatering restaurants that will encourage you to toast to time well spent. Less than two miles away is the bustling Backstreet Arts District, which boasts realistic paintings, larger-than-life sculptures, and handcrafted jewelry that makes for the perfect memento to remember your time in sunny California.
Festivals and Events
As you browse through an extensive list of package deals in Palm Springs, keep in mind that the city is bustling with exciting events year-round.
