This boutique property features distinctive details including a fully restored 1950 Airstream to an expansive Backyard Lawn with interactive games and yoga overlooking the San Jacinto Mountains. The Backyard Lawn also includes a pool and hot tub, three private cabanas, a poolside bar called Lemondrop, and an outdoor stage for live musical performances. Guests can also take part in a little golf practice on the lawn’s putting green, or take part in a cornhole game; there’s also shuffleboard available in the lobby lounge.

For those guests who need a little me time, the Spa Lale, which will open in April, will offer seven treatment rooms and various body treatments including a one-of-a-kind 24-karat gold facial. The property will also feature a fully stocked LifeFitness gym, which also offers complimentary bicycles and fitness classes including morning yoga and tai chi sessions on the Backyard Lawn.

The onsite AC3 Restaurant + Bar serves up breakfast lunch, and dinner, as well as happy hour, room service and pool bar offerings. The restaurant focuses on a New American menu with global twists on classic dishes such as the jumbo lump crab cakes with wasabi guacamole, sweet and sour sauce and tobiko; or the lobster hash served with poached eggs, potatoes, tinker bell peppers, melted chefre, and herb salad. There is also the Cafe in the lobby, which serves Starbucks coffee, tea, craft beer, wine, and Champagne by the glass, along with locally sourced pastries, sandwiches, salads, and pizza.

Rates start at $299 per night. For more information, visit
