Renaissance Palm Springs
The Renaissance Palm Springs keeps you close to all the action, situated next to the Palm Springs Convention Center, which will serve as the home of AMSA's General and Educations Sessions, receptions and Evening of the Stars, and the ever-popular Expo. You'll enjoy their spacious Guest Rooms & Suites and superb downtown location. The Renaissance is also home to the largest pool and pool-deck in the city.
Hilton Palm Springs Resort
The Hilton Palm Springs Resort gives you another fine hotel option just one block from the Palm Springs Convention Center and the heart of the AMSA conference. This stunning desert retreat is situated at the foot of the spectacular San Jacinto Mountains, and is closer to the downtown restaurants and shops. During your down time, you can work out in the modern fitness center, rejuvenate at Elements Spa or simply relax with a cocktail from the Al Fresco bar by the outdoor pool.
When calling either hotel, be sure to reference the American Moving & Storage Association meeting.
This sun drenched desert oasis vacation destination is returning to its glory days as a Hollywood playground, a central gathering spot for modern architectural design aficionados, musicians and artists drawn by nature's inspiration, and an increasing crowd of cool-seekers.
It could be the surge of super hip (and becoming super large) events like the Palm Springs International Film Festival, Modernism Week, and Coachella and Stagecoach Music Festivals. Or the openings of incredibly unique museums such as the Architecture and Design Center in downtown Palm Springs, or nearby Sunnylands, with a public garden and walking paths inspired by Vincent Van Gogh's paintings.
Perhaps it's the parties… pool parties in the summer, cocktail parties by the pool in winter. Mai Tais at tiki bars. S'mores by firepits in the evening under the stars. Bachelorette parties abound. This is where people get away to.
Maybe it's the Hollywood glitz and glamour. The Rat Pack lived, loved and played here…it doesn't get any better than that. Stars such as Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Lucille Ball all built homes here (that you can now rent!), adding a touch of stardust. Wearing a favorite vintage outfit, shopping for midcentury modern treasures in Uptown Design District, dining alfresco in downtown bistros under the warm sun… now that's a vacation.
But frantic and hurried it is not. The pace is relaxed, the colors are saturated by the warm desert light, and the living is easy. Nestled at the base of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains, the City of Palm Springs is the ancestral home of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The streets, lined with palm trees, are perfect for exploring boutique shops, art galleries and museums while soaking up the warm sunshine.
If this isn't enough to entice you… soar to the top of Mount San Jacinto on the world famous Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, play a round of golf at one of hundreds of top area golf courses, or hike the ancient palm groves of the Indian Canyons. In the evening, stroll the year-round Villagefest, then relax with (of course) a swim under the evening stars.
