It’s that time of year again: New York Fashion Week is here, and I’m so excited to head to New York today for the fashion, friends, and feasting. But before I take off to what’s sure to be a FREEZING (but fun) week, I’m recapping last weekend’s getaway with Eric to Palm Springs. I’ll start by saying that we LOVE Palm Springs. We usually make our way there every few months or so, and we’ve tried out a few different hotels. This time we switched things up and stayed at the DoubleTree by Hilton Golf Resort, and we had a blast. (Can you really go to Palm Springs and have a bad time? Maybe in July when you’re, like, melting.) The entire place just had a massive renovation, so it’s like staying in a brand new hotel.
We checked in on Friday and immediately headed down to the pool. I mean, it was 80 degrees in February – don’t waste any time, just go to the pool! The pool area was huge and luckily pretty quiet, a much welcomed contrast to some of the loud and overcrowded pool scenes around town. Hey, I love a good pool party, but sometimes you just want a little lounge chair nap, #AMIRIGHT? Our room was spacious and nice with a balcony that looked out over the pool, golf course, and mountains – perfect for a glass of wine before dinner. Downtown Palm Springs was just a short drive or Uber ride away, so we headed there for dinner.
On Saturday we ordered room service breakfast which is pretty much my favorite reason to ever stay in a hotel. Breakfast in bed in my robe? Yes, please. A facial at the spa kicked off my day, and another relaxing afternoon by the pool and a walk around the grounds finished it off. We left on Sunday wishing we didn’t have to get back for that pesky Super Bowl, or maybe that was just me. Overall though, it was an amazing weekend getting some much-needed quiet time in the desert, and we can’t thank the DoubleTree enough for such a great pool and spa, friendly staff, huge grounds to wander, and amazing views.
