Designer Michael Kreiss's interiors include 18-foot ceilings, glass walls with views of the surrounding San Jacinto Mountains, and an ivory-and-eggshell palette that complements the colors of the desert landscape.
The living room has a slate wall inset with a fireplace for chilly nights, and the three bedrooms have walk-in closets, granite baths, and high-tech extras like room-to-room intercoms and motorized window shades.
Of course, there's a swimming pool and hot tub: This is Palm Springs.
Pricing: From $1,100/night.
