Alcazar, a newcomer boutique hotel in Palm Springs, doesn’t take itself too seriously. The door hang states, “I am/we are: at liquor store; tanning, enjoying mani pedi, at Birba (the family owned restaurant lounge neighbor); sexting or shagging in another room – come in now! For the “come in later” side, excuses are: “I am/we are: snoozing; blogging about Cheeky’s; getting busy; procrastinating; hung over or feeling anti-social.”
You get the vibe – Alcazar hotel is the place to hang your hat in the cheeky Uptown Palm Springs District, while still leaving money in your pocket to go out and play. Alcazar hotel opened in 2011, and each of the 34 rooms in this boutique hotel feature imported Italian linens and flat screen TV’s.
There are several options for hotel rooms, from the two queen beds and jacuzzi tub to the one king bed with its own patio and view of the San Jacinto mountains.
Tiny, enclosed patio, (smoker-friendly outside, $150 cleaning fee if you light up inside), dog-friendly $50 one-time pet fee, complimentary Alcazar robes while you stay – $45 if you you’d like one for purchase.
Need to know:
There is a $7. daily resort fee that covers overnight hotel parking, wi-fi, daily coffee and pastries (from Cheeky’s) and bicycle rentals.
Check in: 3 p.m.

The Alcazar is the ultimate fun triangle, as this compound features the hotel, Birba’s restaurant/lounge and Cheeky’s next door for excellent breakfast and lunch service in Palm Springs Uptown District.
