There’s no place like the desert oasis of Palm Springs, a town whose city limits are blessed with year-round sunshine, mid-century modern dwellings and old Hollywood glam (think Sinatra and Monroe). Welcome to the Kimpton Rowan, a gleaming downtown retreat where rooftop pool cocktails mix with brilliant sunsets over the San Jacinto Mountains. Art, nature and culture are all within reach. A few blocks away, take in some art at the Palm Springs Museum, home to Native American and classical western pieces. Later, stroll downtown and shop for souvenirs or head to the Uptown Design District for vintage treasures. Craving a quiet respite dotted with native flora and cacti? The family-owned Moorten Botanical Gardens is a small treasure. From our hotel, spend a morning hiking the nearby Tahquitz Canyon, a short loop with a tranquil waterfall and native wildlife. Further out, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway transports guests over the breathtaking cliffs of Chino Canyon. Recreation seekers will of course find ample tennis, golf and spas.
