The Palm Springs Modern architectural style owes its beginning to William F. Cody, and this low-profile hotel, built in 1952 for a Hollywood producer, is preserved as a tribute to his mid-century modern designs. Patios accompany the bungalows, which combine to make 22 guest rooms, from the Queen Standard to the 2,000-square-foot “Residence,” which has its own private pool. Platform beds, ample glass, and the occasional zebra print fill the interiors, and bathrooms are stocked with L’Occitane products. This adults-only property (age 21 and up) has a saline pool and offers room service from the adjacent diner.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
