Five Boutique Hotels for Your Palm Springs Getaway

Grounds of the Parker Palm Springs

If you can take the desert heat, Palm Springs is the ultimate retro retreat. It was the playground for Hollywood stars in the 1950s, and remnants of that era can be found in the midcentury-modern hotels that now serve stars like Twighlighter Kellan Lutz and blond sweethearts Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard. We offer five boutique hotels for your consideration when you want to hang in Coachella Valley.

Find out our five Palm Springs picks after the jump.

While it's definitely the off-season for Palm Springs right now, it's also the best time to take advantage of cheap room rates at some of the desert's best hotels. We'll be rounding up some of the Palm Springs area's (including Palm Desert) most notable hotels this month. Got any suggestions or questions? Let us know.

This is Palm Springs where roadside motels and inns have just as much appeal as the designer boutique hotels and luxurious five-stars, so we aren't surprised to hear that the Holiday Inn here gets killer reviews. But thankfully, it's not because the hotel is old and kitschy. It's actually a nice new hotel.

While it's definitely the off-season for Palm Springs right now, it's also the best time to take advantage of cheap room rates at some of the desert's best hotels. We'll be rounding up some of the Palm Springs area's (including Palm Desert) most notable hotels this week. Got any suggestions or questions? Let us know.

While La Quinta is far removed from the downtown Palm Springs party scene and the Hyatt smack down in the middle of it, the Hotel Zoso is just a touch removed from the nightlife.

Located behind Palm Canyon Drive on South Indian Canyon, the Zoso has a boutique hotel feel with a dash of zen. Rooms are tricked out with modern decor ("plush textures beside cool stainless steel"), 42-inch flat screen TVs, luxury sheets (although these could be fake) and faux fur throws. Uh...it's the desert. You might not need those fur throws this summer.

Like its neighbor the Parker Palm Springs, The Horizon Hotel was once the scene of a reality TV dating show, I Love New York.

Ok, so that might scare some of you off (not us, we love us some New York baby!) but the Horizon is a very chill spot consisting entirely of 22 little bungalow-type rooms. These rooms were originally built in the 1950s but have been restored with a modern post-modern look.

A TripAdvisor reviewer said the photos on the website don't do the place justice and we have to agree. The hotel grounds look much more appealing in person than online. We also like how it's close, but not too close to the main drag of Palm Springs, and that its rectangular layout isolates the hotel from the rest of the block.

Two nights minimum is required on the weekends and room rates start at $139 this summer. Thank god for unbearable Palm Springs heat or we may never have a chance to visit such cool hotels.

Palm Springs Area Hotel Guide: The Parker Returns to the Small Screen with 'The Bachelorette'

The Parker Palm Springs is returning to the small screen again tonight but fortunately it is only for one night and has nothing to do with its ill-fated reality show Welcome to the Parker.

Instead the Parker will be the back-drop for the reality show The Bachelorette featuring Deanna Pappas. The show is on tonight at 8pm on ABC. And the hotel is of course taking advantage of such prime product placement by offering guests a "Bachelorette" Package.

Will he get a rose, will he not? Ahh... the drama. For all of you who wish you were Deanna or had a chance to date Deanna, we've got the perfect solution. Pretend!!!

As seen on ABC's "Bachelorette," Deanna and her men enjoyed the Parker Palm Springs and now you can too. Indulge in a night in one of our villas and wake up to breakfast for two on your patio. Then go and strut your stuff poolside and impress "her or him" with your croquet skills. We know who the true winner is!

The package is good from now through September 16th at the price of $495 a night. Roses not included. Nor are a gaggle of men from which you can choose to spend the night. Click here to book.

Yes, this picture was taken this year. Hard to believe, we know.

If you want the opposite experience of a Palm Desert retreat, and instead want to be near the action of downtown Palm Springs, then the Hyatt Regency Suites Palm Springs might be for you.

This oddly-shaped hotel (we think its like a trapezoid) is located on Palm Canyon Drive, right smack in the middle of where everything goes off at night. All rooms are one-bedroom suites with their own private balcony, granting you plenty of space to recuperate from a hangover at a boozy night out.

However, there is a catch to being close to all the action.

We decided to take a spontaneous trip to Palm Springs with a few girlfriends this weekend. Forgoing the thought of sleeping on a friend's couch--or worse, the floor--we decided to hit up Hotwire to see what we could find.

And what we found and booked was a spectacular deal of $94 a night at the La Quinta Resort & Club, a sprawling Waldorf-Astoria Collection hotel made up of little casitas and villas in Palm Desert.

For realz. $94 a night. So we jumped in our friend's car and made the two-hour drive from Los Angeles into the dead heat of the desert.
