One block from downtown Palm Springs in the Movie Colony neighborhood
Built by famed architect Albert Frey in the 1930s, the Movie Colony Hotel and the surrounding neighborhood is known for its former celebrity dwellers. Tales of Jim Morrison, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin are still told at the hotel. And Marilyn Monroe, Cary Grant and Dinah Shore all owned homes in the neighborhood, which is now home to a 5-acre wellness park with exercise stations and meditation gardens and is just a block from downtown Palm Springs.
Once known as a destination only suited for spring breakers or retirees, Palm Springs has become a classy and clean desert destination for anyone looking for an uncluttered city with resort amenities. With a healthy gay scene and the Coachella valley (and music festival) just over 30 minutes away, the Palm Springs crowd is slowly becoming harder and harder to define. Most who come are there to spend, exercise and relax.
So, you scored tickets to Coachella? Sweet. Even if the festival is on the verge of becoming overpriced and over-exposed…
