Over Memorial Day weekend I stayed at the Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage just outside of Palm Springs. I wanted a relaxing weekend so this was right up my alley! I know the area very well as I’ve been coming to Palm Springs since I was a child but never had the opportunity to stay here. So this was a treat for me! Here is my review of the Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage.

AMENITIES

The resort has a huge pool for all guests to enjoy as well as a smaller adult pool and lawn for sunbathing. And if basking in the sun is on your agenda, there is a secluded adult area with lounge chairs, umbrellas, mini golf and of course an incredible view! People flock to Palm Springs for the ultimate relaxation vacation, so you will definitely want to check out the spa! The resort is also great for kids as they have daily kids activities and yard games like corn-hole and croquet.

FOOD

There are two restaurants on property. The main one is where we had breakfast everyday overlooking the pool and enjoyed views of the Coachella Valley. I loved the dishes we ordered from the menu like the huevos rancheros. The buffet was ok but not outstanding. I liked it though for the fruit and omelet bar.

The other restaurant on property is The Edge which overlooks the Coachella Valley. It has modern decor and a progressive menu with a rib cap steak cut which I had never heard of before! And if you are in the mood for sweets, you need to order the chocolate desert. The presentation alone is incredible!

SERVICE

Hand in hand with the Ritz Carlton brand comes incredible service. Prime example? I was lounging at the hotel pool with my friend and I wanted shade and he wanted sun but we couldn’t find that combo. So the hotel staff adjusted the umbrellas several times throughout the day to accommodate the changing sunlight.

Another silly example was when we were walking down the hall and I saw an employee vacuuming, he immediately turned off the vacuum to greet us. I couldn’t believe he stopped his job to greet us, but it was a thoughtful gesture.

LOCATION

The location is really special as most resorts are located on the valley floor. The Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage is located up a hill so it benefits from gorgeous desert views and seclusion. It’s within 30 minutes from the Palm Spring airport, Palm Desert, Indian Wells and downtown Palm Springs.

I’m naming The Parker the best hotel in Palm Springs, hands down. I have always wanted to come here but now that I live on the east coast I don’t come out west as often as I used to. I used to live in Newport Beach so I’d come out to Palm Springs a lot for weekend getaways, to get a little sun and enjoy some relaxation. So it was nice to come back to the area and try some place new. So here’s why I think The Parker is the best hotel in Palm Springs!

FOOD
Dine at the Counter Reformation for an amazing menu and incredible service. Seriously the best! I wanted to be BFF with the waiters. But make sure you book your table in advanced as seating books up quickly as it’s only a bar – no tables! Plus the prices are really good (or have I been living in NYC for too long?).

DECOR
You can’t mention this hotel without commenting on the decor. It’s super artistic and edgy – I’d image a designers dream job! Every square inch is worthy of an Instagram post.

THE PROPERTY
The property has gorgeous greenery, lawns to relax on and plenty of sports games from croquet to tennis and petanque. And if you haven’t already got enough relaxation, visit the spa on property for the ultimate spa experience.

My cousin Dani and I (not blood but basically the same thing) went to a new favorite of mine While Were Were Young, which is this adorable mini restaurant in the West Village. I love it for so many reasons, the feminine decor, the amazing food and crafty cocktails. It’s especially nice in the summer because they can open up their windows so it feels so open!

This top is seriously one of my favorites – although now I’m sad to say I literally don’t know where this top is. I’m sure it’s in my closet somewhere or got lost at the dry cleaners tragic hole of lost laundry. Cue the eye roll emoji.

Tiny's in Tribeca http://styledamerican.com/styled-american-edits/

You guys, I have been going to this restaurant for years!! Which is not normal for NYC as people always want to try the next latest thing. But Tiny’s is kind of a staple and you should definitely check it out the next time you are here! It’s located in Tribeca.

It’s hard to see, but that sign says, “we were together, forget the rest,” which is such a sweet message. This is AGAIN at my new favorite restaurant While We Were Young in the West Village.

Obviously you can never go wrong with Christian Louboutins, but this pair I love because they will literally go with everything I wear this summer.

Are you guys excited for Memorial Day? I have already started packing for my trip so I thought it’d be fun to share some pieces I’m definitely bringing! My Memorial Day style is always casual and festive, I love wearing red, white and blue! Off-the-shoulder and one shoulder tops will be hot this weekend. So when I discovered this chambray one shoulder ruffle top I totally fell in love. And you can get it by tomorrow because Shopbop has next day shipping! Another piece I’m loving is this adorable ice cream cone clutch! It is nearly 50% off and also comes in a coconut cocktail or a palm tree print. And you can’t go wrong with white denim to pair with your festive holiday top! Last year I picked out these holiday weekend essentials for some serious Memorial Day style.

Last year for Memorial Day I was in the Hamptons. I plan on going out there a lot this summer, but this weekend I’m going to Palm Springs to relax and for some great weather.

If you are doing some last minute weekend shopping you should check out the Half Yearly Sale going on right now at Nordstrom! You can save up to 40% and it’s one of the best sales of the year! It’s the perfect time to pick up some pieces for summer.
