I decided to do a last minute trip to Palm Springs, CA to burn off some vacation time. I was thinking of just staying at the Westin, but figured being alone, it might be nice to be at a gay resort where there might be other people to chat with. All of the staff were very friendly, and knowing I was alone, would go out of their way to introduce me to other guests, not that that doesn’t happen anyway when you’re laying by the pool.

I even felt so comfortable that I went clothing optional a few times, a first for me. The hotel is clothing optional, but does not feel trashy or slutty like some of the other resorts in the Warm Sands area.

The rooms are big, beautiful, with plasma screens and a huge dvd library of all kinds of titles. The owners also have plenty of recommendations when it comes to massage therapists, places to eat, where to get a hair cut, and they never steered me wrong.

If you’re looking for a place to relax, meet some new friends, and be close to everything, this is the place to be. The pricetag is high, but the rooms, location, and meals included (both breakfast and lunch) make it worth it.
