PALM SPRINGS – The new Saguaro Palm Springs. I love the otherworldly nature of Palm Springs, from the natural features to the white windmills lined up for miles. The former Holiday Inn reopened late last year after a makeover by the Sydell Group, the folks behind the Ace Hotel across the street. When I checked into room 107, I was treated to a delicious Spanish spread of fresh figs, Manchego, salted Marcona almonds, and a pitcher of sangria from the in-house restaurant, Tinto, which is under the direction of celeb chef Jose Garces. I’m a gal who grew up visiting my family in Spain plenty and I make gallons of gazpacho during tomato season. I was all over Jose’s version, served with smoked cod, chives, and bacon. But back to the camera, which I think handled the vivid colors brilliantly. For its debut Saturday, March 17, we’re hosting an event out our Abbot Kinney store from noon to 6 p.m. The hotel is cacophony of color.
(The umbrellas around the large swimming pool are the same shade of canary yellow as the signature color of Fred Hayman of Giorgio Beverly Hills.)
