Follow the dusty desert roads to Alcazar Palm Springs, a newly refurbished hotel in uptown’s Movie Colony (a neighbourhood known for its star-studded residents since the 1960s). It was the 2-hour rule of Hollywood Studios (when actors had to be on hand to rush back to the set), that made this area a popular retreat for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor.
At the Spanish colonial-style Alcazar hotel, the all-white guest rooms surround the sparkling pool and garden courtyard. Some have Jacuzzis and many feature fireplaces or patios. Choose a room away from the pool if you are concerned about noise (it stays open until midnight and can be lively).
The pool deck has mountain views, and loungers and towels for guests to borrow. Guests can also borrow bicycles to explore the sights of Palm Springs. Nearby are the Uptown Design District, art galleries, golf clubs and the Moorten Botanical Garden.
There are two on-site restaurants, considered "among the Springs’ trendiest", says Fodor's. Breakfast pastries, fresh fruit and coffee are provided by Cheeky’s restaurant in the hotel lobby and serves a heartier varieties of bacon or blueberry pancakes. Neighbouring Birba serves wood-fired pizzas, pasta and original cocktails alfresco, where fire pits keep diners toasty once the sun sets.
Please note, a $9 daily resort fee applies per room and includes bike rentals, Wi-Fi access, parking and coffee/espresso/tea & pastries
