Best Places to Travel in 2014: Palm Springs

Courtesy of Sparrows Hotel

Palm Springs, CA

An antidote to Palm Springs’ retro resorts, the Sparrows Hotel, set in a former 1950’s motor lodge, emits a hip-summer-camp vibe, with reclaimed-redwood walls and concrete floors. Consider it an Ace Hotel gone country: all 20 rooms have rancho-rustic furniture and vintage Swiss Army blankets; some come with horse-trough bathtubs. Despite a no-kids policy, youthful diversions abound—including a horseshoe pitch, splashy saltwater pool, and tennis court with old-timey wooden rackets. —David A. Keeps
