Honoring the Hollywood Glamour of Palm Springs
About 130 miles from Los Angeles, Palm Springs is the perfect weekend get-away. It’s a jewel among desert cities and rightly so. Its village atmosphere has been preserved and embellished over the years. The downtown area with its quaint lampposts, benches and Mexican tile-paved enclaves invites strolling among the shops, galleries, eateries and coffeehouses. Rich in history and blessed with glorious weather, it is a prime destination of travelers from all over the world.
And if you Angeleanos are looking for a great get-away, we have the perfect spot…the Miramonte Resort & Spa. Miramonte Resort & Spa, a AAA Four Diamond property, currently has a great promotion, “Some Like It Hot.” Hotel guests and local residents can enjoy an evening in the desert, with the perfect summer time temperature for lounging in the pool or relaxing poolside during Miramonte’s Dive in Movie nights. The Grove Artisan Kitchen will be serving poolside specialties reminiscent of 1959 for those wishing to enjoy dinner or appetizers before or during the movie. Additionally, attractive room rates are available from $89.00 per night and guests at Miramonte’s Dive in Movie Nights will receive a complimentary $25.00 spa gift card to enjoy services at The WELL Spa. Some Like it Hot will run every Thursday until September 3, beginning at 8:30 p.m. For more information on how you can get in on this great promotion, visit http://www.miramonteresort.com. And, stay tuned for an upcoming podcast on the Miramonte!
Another great spot to call home for a few days is the Riviera Resort & Spa. Originally opening in 1959, the original Riviera Resort immediately became Palm Springs’ go-to hot spot for celebrities and cultural sophisticates around the world who wanted the ultimate “Palm Springs experience.” Today, it’s still a favorite for celebrities like Anne Hathaway and Mira Sorvino. Listen to our podcast from March on Riveria Resort & Spa.
Experience flavors from around the world in portions that are meant to be shared with friends at Dink’s Restaurant and Ultra Lounge. If pizza is what you’re craving, head to MatchBox Palm Springs. Afterall, it’s a great oven that makes a great pizza! If you’re a foodie, walk downtown to Pomme Frite where you’ll find superior cuisine without European pomp.
