During the day, the pool area serves as the center of activity. Cabanas furnished with couches, chairs, televisions and comfy lounges line the outer area. And the Bikini Bar is right there to sate any cravings for food or drink.

Circa 59 is the property’s chic fine-dining option and serves creative twists on salads, steaks and seafood. And the Sidebar Lounge offers a more sophisticated environment for a before-dinner cocktail or nightcap.
   
If you’re planning a weekend in Palm Springs, be sure to book a tour – whether it’s a celebrity home tour, an architecture tour or a tour of the Palm Springs Art Museum. It’s going to be hard to pull yourself away from the property, but believe me, it will be worth it.
   
The celebrity tours will take you by the home where Elvis Presley and his bride, Priscilla, honeymooned, Liberace’s home, Dinah Shore’s desert oasis and many, many more. You’ll get a fascinating oral history lesson on Palm Springs.
