Go Country in the Desert - Palm Springs, CA

Add to mybook »

Sometimes the best laid vacation plans are to just sit still by a big blue pool. And if the pool's at a high-style barn in the low desert, even better. Take a jaunt to the new Sparrows Hotel, a 20-room property located in a former 1950s motel courtesy of Doug and Josie Smith, the couple behind Palm Springs' beloved and largely unsung, Korakia. Consider the Sparrows a good one for the shoulder season, May and September. 'Cause if you haven't heard, Palm Springs gets kind of warm in the summer. Like 100-degree-plus warm.
