Life is short and as I write this, there are only four more weekends left in 2014. What are you doing to make yours count? I’m in Palm Springs, doing a little Be A Weekender weekend getaway at the luxurious Hilton Palm Springs. I drove out (in the rain) in a cool, silver, 2014 Audi A4 from Silvercar. Even in the rain, the Quattro all-wheel-drive kept me safe.

I’m enjoying the weekend in the Hilton’s Presidential Suite, part of the perks of being a Gold Hilton Hhonors member. I also get free high-speed Wifi, late checkout, bottled water, and a bunch of other convenient amenities. The hotel is beautiful, set against the local mountains, with a huge resort pool area in the center. It’s close to all the dining and shopping Palm Springs has to offer.

The Presidential Suite is large with a comfortable living area. There’s a bar, dining table and a large flatscreen. The suite is complimented by a huge patio overlooking the pool. The bedroom is large and inviting, with its own sliding glass door leading to the balcony. The bathroom is huge with a shower big enough for a party. The design is very stylish and luxurious.

The service at the hotel is great and the staff is happy to help guests have the best experience possible, whether they are here for work or play. Food is delicious as well, I’ve had a few in-room dining meals, all great.
