Recently restored Spanish-style hideaway in the heart of Palm Springs’ Uptown Design District
Originally built in the 1950s, Alcazar was reborn in 2011 after undergoing a thoughtful face-lift that upholds the property’s Spanish Colonial soul while updating its amenities for discerning sun worshipers. Owner-slash-designer Carol Blum channeled poolhouse-casual, melding it with classic Spanish syle inside and out. Whitewashed and clay-roofed haciendas bursting with calliandra vines and bright pink bougainvillea are the perfect complement to the desert’s aqua blue sky and sand-colored peaks — a scene best enjoyed at dusk in the warmth of the outdoor fire.
Bed & Bath
Minimalist rooms — some with petite patios — cradle guests in simple sophistication, with black and white geometric print pillows, silver-toned vintage palm tree lamps and bright, original Kelly Tunstall art for pop against the gallery-white canvas. The charm of this 1950s hacienda-style hotel is the uniqueness of every room — some bathrooms are too small for more than one, others are big enough for a party.
Surrounded by restaurants, Alcazar Palm Springs is a haven for foodies conceived by owners Tara Lazar and Marco Rossetti, the savvy restaurateurs behind Palm Springs dining institutions Cheeky’s, Birba and Jiao — each features a different dining concept but they all have a sourced-within-100-miles menu. Hit Cheeky’s in the morning to brunch on huevos rancheros, melt-in-your mouth buttermilk waffles or a bacon flight; in the afternoon sample Jiao’s Asian street food–inspired fare, and at night dine alfresco on handmade pizzas and cups of vino at Birba.
