July can produce some of the hottest temperatures in Greater Palm Springs, and conversely some of the best deals at hotels and resorts.
Here are five hot deals:
“Let’s Go Dutch” has taken on a whole new meaning this summer. Avalon Hotel and Bungalows serves up its own verison, meaning whatever price you pay for your room, you get that amount in daily food credits. The sheer whites of Hollywood Regency design combined with desert Spanish architecture and intense greenery of palms and citrus trees will free your mind. The fresh, vibrant, California cuisine of Chi Chi will keep your tummy full.
