Mission: Palm Springs, 4 days.

What I want:

1. Mid-century hotel/motel, kitchy a-ok.

2. Breakfast included

3. Cocktail hour

4. Pool

5. Vibe for the 35-55 year old crowd

6. Lovely staff

What I don't want:

1. Children

2. Hipsters

3. Loud music at night, party scene.

Up for the challenge of a recommendation?

Thanks!

Good luck finding a hotel in Palm Springs that a)doesn't have children and b) doesn't have hipsters! Hotels like Zoso have breakfast included, but I wouldn't choose a hotel based on breakfast when you can get one anywhere for $5-$8.

What is your budget per night for a hotel and when is the trip? Rates change depending on time of year.

My rates are from $119-$299/night. Yep, wide range. BTW, it's not that I don't like kids (I have a cute one of my own), but I'm looking for a kid-free few days. Time of year? June or July.

No problem at all, try the Desert Hills Hotel.

The Zoso would probably be the exact opposite of what you are looking for :))

Your list looks pretty similar to ours and we are deciding between DelMarcos and Orbit In. Good luck with your search.

Thanks for the responses, everyone! I find TA to be a valuable tool.

Desert Hill was a new one on my list, will check out.

Anna, we also are looking at the Orbit Inn and the Rendezvous. Ran across Ruby Montana's and Horizon as well. Love the design at Horizon.

Choices!

I'm just curious why you would choose Palm Springs for a June/July trip? It will be scorching hot. As in, not fun it's so hot. We go to AZ every winter and we make sure we're back home in WA by the first of June.

Only time free. Bummer, hun?

Yep, I made a trip out there once several years ago to visit Frank Sinatra's grave. Scorching does not even come close to describing the heat.

Del Marcos & Orbit can be a bit more hipster/ gay friendly.
