Escape the fog at Palm Springs' hottest desert oasis


When the fog rolls into San Francisco, we suggest you roll out—to your new luxury home in Palm Springs, that is.

Escape the Bay Area's seasonal haze by seeking clarity and sunshine at Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel, which offers summertime deals in a luxurious, sun-soaked setting.

Sure, this soulful desert retreat beckons any time of year, but now a summer sale—running through July 31st, with 20 percent off stays through September 15th—makes a trek south an especially enticing and timely matter.

There's nothing quite like experiencing the property's cool elegance and ethereal setting for yourself, and the masses seem to agree. The Rowan made Conde Nast Traveler's 2018 Hot List of Best New Hotels in the World and was named the top hotel in SoCal by Conde Nast Traveler's Readers Choice Awards 2018.

Care to see what's generated the buzz? For starters, the hotel's address can't be beat, placing guests in the heart of downtown, near countless culinary and cocktail hot spots. It's also situated within miles of abundant culture (the Palm Springs Arts Museum, Architecture and Design Center, and Uptown Design District), as well as in the path of nature's beauty everywhere you turn (Tahquitz Canyon, Indian Canyons, and the Moorten Botanical Gardens, to name a few).

After invigorating adventures on rugged trails, settle into one of the Rowan's soothing, light-filled guest rooms and suites, where an elegance-meets-modernity vibe perfectly complements views of the San Jacinto Mountains and desert glimmering outside your window. Better yet, soak up surrounding panoramas from the rooftop pool and bar (appropriately named High Bar). Perhaps rent a shaded cabana from which to enjoy a Coachella Valley beer or refreshing California wine, served alongside tasty snacks (think guacamole, ceviche, "Sweet Heat Cauliflower," or sliders with an elevated twist).

When it's time to refuel again, dine at one of the property's chef-driven restaurants. Enjoy pre-dinner cocktails (or a soothing nightcap) at Window Bar, sensational rooftop views and seasonal small plates on the patio of 4 Saints, or fast and casual Mediterranean fare at Juniper Table, a sun-drenched cafe. The boutique hotel's other draws range from a fitness center and yoga mat in each room to pet-friendly amenities (a Kimpton staple), Atelier Bloem bath amenities and in-room spa services, if you're wanting to take relaxation to a whole new plane.

In the midst of all the mist, one thing is crystal clear: While the fog does its thing back home, this luxurious Palm Springs outpost is ready to pamper you for as long as you're able to stay. // Book your stay at
