Out & About’s Five Palm Award – “Outstanding” – Gay.com
"Century Palm Springs (598 Grenfall Rd, 760/323-9966 or 800/475-5188, fax 760/323-9933; www.centurypalmsprings.com; $179 - $299) Although a number of the city's smaller mainstream properties have embraced Palm Springs' famed Mid-Century Modern design aesthetic, which mixes '50s retro-cool designs and materials with contemporary sensibilities, it wasn't until this exceptional resort opened in late 2004 that the city had its very own gay Mid-Century Resort. The former Alexander Resort, which was built in the '50s in the heart of the popular Warm Sands area, contains six rooms and three suites done in the spirit of Philippe Starck, Charles and Ray Eames, Isamu Noguchi and other design luminaries. Ivory, tangerine, and avocado-green color schemes and sleek, low-slung furnishings give these artful yet minimalist rooms a dashing appearance. All have flat-panel TVs with DVD players, LATHER bath amenities, slippers and robes, and the suites have full kitchens and private patios. A helpful and down-to-earth staff headed by innkeepers Woody Shimko and Ray Nocera, substantial Continental breakfast and pool area with unimpeded views of the San Jacinto Mountains complete the experience. (Rooms: nine; Nude sunbathing: yes, Sexual temperature: med: Clientele: men; Meals: ECB, evening cocktails)."
