Chasing the Heat

My boyfriend Paul and I just couldn’t get it together. We’ve been dating for close to four years, and with opposing schedules, separate houses and part-time kids, being able to spend quality time alone is rare. So when the miraculous happened and we had a week to ourselves, we decided to get out of town for a romantic getaway.

We wanted to go somewhere special, somewhere sexy: hot even. “What about the desert? We could go to Palm Springs.” I suggested one night.

Where art deco meets the desert

Mathew Westcott grew up in the hospitality business, and now with The Westcott Hotel, he’s making his mark in Palm Springs.

“Palm Springs has been a favorite vacation spot for me for many years and the city has continued to grow and develop — I wanted to be part of that journey,” he says.

Stay & Eat. Quintessentially Delicious.

Known for their intimate and extraordinary lodgings, several Palm Springs boutique hotels also have on-site restaurants that round out an authentic stay experience. Kitchens are run by chefs dedicated to creating thoughtfully prepared, and often locally sourced, meals with their own twist.

Independent Films. Independent Stays.

If you love the creative style of independent filmmakers, then staying at a small independently-owned hotel will fit right in with your ethos. Every hotel is beautifully curated for an extraordinary experience.

Holiday House is going back to its roots, while embracing modern style.

The Herbert W. Burns-designed luxury hotel was built in 1951, and has been reimagined by interior designer Mark D. Sikes. After several years as the Chase Hotel, the new Holiday House opened on May 1, 2017, with 28 guest rooms and calming shades of blue throughout the property. All of the completely remodeled rooms have oversized showers, Waterworks bath hardware, and Malin +Goetz bath amenities, and some have private outdoor space and Smeg appliances.
