It’s true by being a local I don’t often stay in valley hotels, but there has been the occasional staycation situation that has arisen giving me the opportunity to play tourist in my own backyard (and no, I’m not talking about pitching a tent on my lawn).
And because our guest room is inhabited by our prince of a cat Keebler, I won’t be able to offer that kind of hospitality to you. So instead, I offer up these Hotels, B&B’s and Resorts for your convenience and enjoyment
Built in 1924 by Scottish artist Gordon Coutts, “Dar Marroc” as it was named, was the private home for the Coutts family. The Coutts often entertained and had visitors such as Errol Flynn and Valentino among others of notoriety from that time. Today the property is a magnet for celebrities and world travelers looking for a unique surrounding to enhance their Palm Springs experience. With a jaw dropping pool, and clandestine alcoves, Korakia is a place filled with mystery and romance.257 Patencio Road Palm Springs Ca, 92262 760-864-6411
