Speaking of staying in bed a little longer, we spent the weekend getting some much needed relaxation at a place that was recommended to us by fellow AT'ers. Yes it's in Palm Springs, but for a change there was nothing Mid Century about it:
Korakia is right in downtown palm springs, around the corner from the Orbit In and The Del Marcos. But, not to be cheesy, it feels a world away. There isn't a touch of mid century or the swingin 60's. The furniture is rustic, the architecture Moroccan and the showers made of stone. It felt like being really really far away from everything (which was exactly what we needed). Plus the staff is incredibly friendly, they serve you popsicles when you get there (and they put out fresh mint tea each afternoon) and you can easily check out some bikes to go cruising around the neighborhood. Rates are totally reasonable. Just make sure if you book online to give em a call so that they turn on the a/c a couple of hours before you arrive.
