Three day trips just go by too fast! This past weekend, we packed up our car (and the pups) and took a quick road trip out east! Just a short 2 hour drive away, Palm Springs is one of our favorite areas to visit for a short vacation. We’ve loved visiting in the past for fun activities like horseback riding, hiking, and taking the pups for a walk in Joshua Tree National Park.
This time, we booked a double Valentine’s weekend celebration with our good friends Tram & Anthony (better known as the humans behind @pavlovthecorgi’s account). The kind folks at ARRIVE Palm Springs invited the four of us to come out for a few days of pool time, good food, and relaxation!
Let’s get straight to it. ARRIVE probably has one of my favorite hotel rooms of all time. We’ve traveled to so many places with the pups, and this one just fit our style SO perfectly. The room decor matched Kokoro and Chibi… it’s like we were meant to be.
Our room had tall ceilings, huge windows outfitted with custom curtains that let in tons of natural light, and the bathroom of my dreams! The open layout of the room made it feel like a modern loft or studio. The bright and airy space was exactly what we look for when booking a relaxing, upscale getaway.
The hotel is strictly 21+ which was definitely a plus. Too often have we gone on trips with the hope of relaxing in peace and quiet, only to find some other families with energetic children have chosen the same resort to keep their kids entertained. Another plus of the property being 21+ Complimentary spirits upon check in!
The hotel has two room types: lower floor with a semi-private patio, and upper floor room with no patio. We had upper floor rooms, which provided us a perfect view of the palm tree-lined, mountainous horizon.
The heated pool is open until midnight and lined with comfy beach loungers where you can sprawl out during the day for a tan. We opted to swim at dusk when most of the guests were out to dinner and had the entire pool to ourselves!
Located right in the heart of Palm Springs, we were just a short walk to so many great restaurants and places to eat. There is even a late-night ice cream joint attached to the hotel — the perfect way to end the night after an evening dip in the jacuzzi.
Wexler’s Deli is attached to the hotel for a convenient and delicious breakfast & brunch. The pups are welcome at Wexler’s outdoor patio, too!
We couldn’t have asked for a cuter hotel to spend our long weekend at! Big thanks to ARRIVE for the hospitality! Book your own stay at ARRIVE using this link and get $50 off a two night stay.
