|Palm Springs hotels, motels, and resorts are sometimes just the places where visitors to the Coachella Valley sleep in between adventures. Other times, they are the whole point of the visit. If you're here to browse the shops and galleries, sample the eateries, or participate in any one of the seemingly unlimited outdoor activities solely dependent on the natural environment for their enjoyment, the choice of appropriate lodging may have more to do with location than amenities. Here for a convention or just want to be in the middle of things? The Wyndham Palm Springs Resort is connected to the Palm Springs Convention Center, just three blocks from The Village. On the other hand, if the purpose of your visit is to challenge a particular golf course, you might want to stay at the appropriate golf resort hotel. Walk out of your room directly onto the fairway! Or, maybe you just want to get away from it all, lie by the pool, get a massage, sip an exotic, sweet drink with a plastic umbrella, and read that slightly risque novel that caught your eye. In that case a quiet, perhaps luxury hotel away from the madding crowds might do the trick. The Hotel Zoso, named after ancient runes meaning balance, is a great place to relax away from it all while, at the same time, being in the middle of it all. Whatever your desires, there are some great Palm Springs hotels for that.
