Most people remember what initially brought them to Palm Springs, yet many admit that they discovered there are many reasons to return…again and again. When I lived in Northern CA I booked multiple trips each year and loved to stay at the Alcazar Palm Springs, a 34-room boutique hotel. Yet it wasn’t home and it was a hassle to pack the car and leave the comforts of home behind. [Sorry, Alcazar, as great a hotel as you have, it’s not home. Though the warm baked goods in the morning and the loaner bicycles are a nice touch, though.]
