Beautiful Palm Springs
Stayed at a lovely little bed and breakfast, Casa Cody Country Inn. Quaint and comfy little place. Fireplaces are available, and come in handy for the cool desert evenings. Near to all the great shopping in town.
Also stayed at La Quinta resort which is lovely and one of the best golf courses in the US if you're into that. The little individual Huts come with or without private hot tubs, but there are tons of pools and hot tubs on the resort, so you really don't need a private one unless you care to spring for the extra $$$$.
I liked the shopping in downtown Palm Springs, and there's lots of really great Nature excursions in the area. Problem if you don't have a car though, because the cabs are not cheap and some of the stuff is 15-20 miles away.
