For Valentine’s Day, The Partner and I went to a small Basque restaurant in San Francisco. I can’t say the dinner was fantastic, but it was nice to get a little dressed up, sit like civilized adults and chat leisurely over a 4-course meal. The fact that I got to spend time with The Partner outside the house was a nice enough gift, but then my dear sweetheart of a partner upped the ante.
He pulled an ace out of his pocket literally……
He booked us a weekend in Palm Springs at the ACE Hotel! That sly dog totally pulled a fast one on me since I thought we were not buying presents this year. However, I am super excited about the trip since the ACE Hotel is quite cool. I was your typical mid-century road side motel …. the before pictures remind me of the Bates Motel. Fortunately, a multi-million dollar redesign and face lift has gotten rid of the creepy vibe. The hotel is now filled with mid-century finds and a kick-ass pool!
I am even more excited for the trip because Palm Spring is mecca of mid-century cast-offs from what I have been reading. From hotel liquidators to resale shops galore, the area is chocked full of goodies to be discovered. I am taking out the back seats out from the SUV in anticipation of finding a gem.
I am SO ready for this trip!
Again, I have to thank The Partner for this unexpected and simply awesome Valentine’s Day present.
Any recommendations on where to go in Palm Springs?
