Les Cactus Is The Most Instagramable New Hotel In Palm Springs

Les Cactus, a hotel that opened just prior to the pandemic is raising the bar for design in the chic-as-it-is hot city of Palm Springs California. Located in the Warm Sands neighborhood, just minutes from famed Palm Canyon Drive— it is unofficially the most Instagramable hotel in town.

Named after the 60’s French rock ‘n roll hit by Jacques Dutronc, the property was built in two different phases between the 1930s and 1940s. After going through different owners and a variety of iterations over the years, the most current is likely the last. 

Owner and designer Matthew Kurtz came up with the concept to fill a gap he discovered in the marketplace during this own travels. “Living in Los Angeles, my wife Solène and I would often look to visit Palm Springs for a quick weekend getaway. Unfortunately, the well-designed boutique hotels we wanted to visit: Sparrows Lodge, Korkia Pensione, the Colony Palms, were routinely charging well over $400 per night, which was out of our reach.”

In addition to being less expensive than most hotels in the area, Les Cactus is also an adults-only experience. Due to the intimate size of the property, Kurtz wanted the hotel to be as quiet and relaxing as possible.

A Stylish Experience 

With just 27 guest rooms, the single-story hotel has a very exclusive feel. There are three different room types: Cozy (250-300 square feet), Comfortable (300-350 square feet), and Suites (350-400 square feet), all of which are unique in terms of size and design. 

Although the property isn’t large, the six-month-long renovation was quite labor-intensive. “Our main challenge revolved around staying in budget,” Kurtz tells me. “With our goal of delivering great design while charging guests less per night than our competition, it was imperative to keep our spending in check. We were very fortunate not to hit any roadblocks or find skeletons in the closet during this process.”

Kurtz intentionally decorated the space without any of the commercial-grade furniture typically found at most hotels. Items were purchased from a variety of well-known vendors including CB2, One King’s Lane, Rejuvenation, Hay, and Selamat. “In addition to placing importance on the design of the hotel, during our planning process, we also wanted to make sure our hotel and guest rooms were extremely comfortable and felt familiar,” he explains. “We hoped that by sourcing furniture from well-known sources, our guests would feel as if they were staying at a good friend’s home versus an unfamiliar or sterile place.”

The only design element repeated in each room is a framed square of floral Gucci wallpaper as well as a piece of spin art.

Select rooms also feature custom wood headboards, nightstands, console tables, shelving, and desks.

A Charming Lobby

The lobby is of equal caliber with

Proposed Greenfield development to feature hotel, entertainment venue

CLOSE

An aerial view shows the location of a proposed 38-acre development in the city of Greenfield. The view, which looks west, shows Interstate 894 running vertically in the frame, with Layton Avenue to its left. Loomis Road cuts across the image from upper-left to lower-right. The $100 million development would include a hotel, an entertainment/recreational business, gas station and a mix of residential, commercial, retail, office and medical space. The hotel would be located either north or south of the I-894/Loomis interchange. The entertainment space is eyed for a location near the park and ride parcel at lower-right. (Photo: Cobalt Partners)

A proposed development near a busy Greenfield interchange could feature a hotel, recreational/entertainment venue, gas station/convenience store with a car wash, and a mix of residential, commercial and medical space.

The Greenfield Plan Commission Tuesday unanimously agreed to rezone 26 parcels near West Loomis Road, Interstate 894 and West Layton Avenue to pave the way for a 38-acre development by Cobalt Partners. 

The development, whose value is expected to exceed $100 million, according to Cobalt, would be built on a large swath of land north of I-894 and east of Loomis, including the 16-acre park and ride parcel, as well as a chunk of land south of I-894, mostly east of Loomis.

The land lies next to the former Turf skatepark, which is in the early stages of being redeveloped into a high-profile skating destination.

According to city documents, Cobalt’s vision for the development includes: 

  • Commercial/retail/office/medical. Up to 400,000 square feet, north of the I-894 interchange in the vicinity of the park and ride parcel, five stories in height.
  • Recreational/entertainment. Up to 300,000 square feet, north of the I-894 interchange in the vicinity of the park and ride parcel, four stories in height.
  • Hospitality. North or south of the I-894 interchange, up to 130 rooms, five stories in height.
  • Multi-family residential. North or south of the I-894 interchange, up to 600 units, four stories in height with underground parking. 
  • Commercial/retail/office/medical. Up to 160,000 square feet, south of the I-894 interchange, north of West Layton Avenue, five stories in height.
  • Convenience store/gas station/car wash. South of the I-894 interchange, north of West Layton Avenue.
  • Billboard. North or south of the I-894 interchange. 

Cobalt is working in public-private partnership with the city of Greenfield on a comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment plan, with an emphasis on recreational and entertainment uses, Cobalt President/CEO Scott Yauck said in an email.  

He said Cobalt is currently talking with hotel operators that have an interest in an approximately 80-room hotel as part of the overall development.  

In addition, Yauck said his company is in conversations with three different entertainment concepts, although he said it’s too early to disclose specifics.

Yauck said the area is an excellent location that will only be enhanced by future road construction.

“We believe that this is a very high visibility, accessible site that will also benefit from the planned reconstruction of the Loomis Interchange and reconstruction of Layton Avenue from 27th

Owner Michael V. Roberts is seeking either a buyer for the 112,000-square-foot hotel and banquet center or to partner with someone for a potential joint redevelopment venture at the 3.75-acre site, such as a project involving residences.

“Right now the asking price is $26 million,” said Roberts, a high-profile Black businessman and hotel owner from St. Louis.

Like many downtown-area hotels, Roberts Riverwalk experienced a significant drop in business because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is now only open at reduced capacity Thursdays-Sundays through booking.com. 

“With COVID out here, there’s really no business during the middle of the week,” Roberts said.

Michael V. Roberts, shown here in a 2014 photo, is now looking for someone to buy his Roberts Riverwalk Hotel.

Constructed in 1902, the hotel building is part of a complex that served until 1981 as offices and laboratories for pharmaceutical maker Parke-Davis Co. After Parke-Davis left, the complex became Stroh River Place and the building was turned into the River Place Inn in the late 1980s.

The Stroh family sold the hotel in 1993, and five years later, it was bought by Omni Hotels and underwent a name change to Omni Detroit Hotel at River Place.

In 2010, the Omni hotel closed. Shortly thereafter, Roberts bought the hotel and undertook $5 million in renovations to reopen it, including the installation of a swimming pool and a new 5,500-square-foot conference center.

“The prospect to acquire an established landmark along with coveted waterfront land is rare,” Larry Emmons, a senior managing director at Newmark, said in a statement announcing the property’s listing.

The recent buyers of the nearby UAW-GM Center for Human Resources complex said they once considered buying the Roberts Riverwalk Hotel as well in a separate deal, but changed their plans.

Roberts said that selling the hotel was a tough decision for him to make.

 “A smart entrepreneur has to be prepared to pivot when situations require a different mindset,” he said.

Tripadvisor warns users about Thai hotel after American jailed over critical review

The resort is rated 4.5 stars out of five. It’s located on a beautiful island off the coast of Thailand. Oh, and you might get arrested for posting a negative review.

Tripadvisor took the unusual step of posting a warning on its website about a Thai hotel, Sea View Resort & Spa Koh Chang, after it said an American guest there faced criminal charges and spent time in jail over his one-star review he posted on the travel-booking website.

“The hotel may have been exercising its legal rights under local law, however, it is our role to inform you so you may take this into consideration when researching your travel plans,” the website’s warning states.

The resort had accused the Tripadvisor user of posting slanderous reviews.

AMERICAN AIRLINES REVIEWING WHEELCHAIR POLICY AFTER BLOGGER CALLS OUT WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS AS TOO PROHIBITIVE

A Tripadvisor spokesperson told Fox News that this was the first case of a traveler going to jail for sharing their opinion that the company was aware of.

“Tripadvisor believes in the right of every traveler to write about their first-hand traveling experiences – good or bad,” the spokesperson said in an email. “Travelers love to share good news about their travel and dining experiences on our platform.

“Most negative reviews posted are valuable customer service and learning experiences for businesses who choose to constructively engage this feedback,” they continued. “However, Tripadvisor strongly opposes any action where a business, like the Sea View Hotel & Spa in Koh Chang, uses local law to send someone to jail for expressing their opinion. This extraordinary action is why we have taken steps to issue an alert to other travelers, in the form of a notification on the hotel’s listing page on Tripadvisor.”

The AFP previously identified the traveler as Wesley Barnes, an American who was working in Thailand. Immigration police arrested Barnes in September and briefly brought him back to the island, Koh Chang, after the resort’s owner filed a complaint about a review Barnes had posted in July.

“Unfriendly staff, no one ever smiles,” Barnes wrote in the review, which is still posted on Tripadvisor. “They act like they don’t want anyone there. The restaurant manager was the worst. He is from the Czech Republic. He is extremely rude and impolite to guests.”

The resort’s response is also still posted on the website under the review. It alleged that Barnes and his group had brought their own liquor into the resort’s restaurant against its rules and then “used abusive language” and caused “disruption” while refusing to pay the $16 corkage fee.

“We think it is very unfair for that you have chosen to try to give a very negative image of our wonderful resort and our very friendly staff so we would like to shed some light on what made you go this far,” the resort wrote in response.

South Africa Will Lift International Travel Restrictions

President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa announced Wednesday that the country will open its borders to all international travelers despite an increasing number of coronavirus cases in some parts of the country.

The Covid-19 U.I.F. scheme has already paid out nearly 53 billion to over 4.7 million workers. These relief measures were necessary to protect those who are most vulnerable in a time of great distress. But they will have to come to an end as we do not, as a government, have sufficient resources to continue. As we transition to a new phase in our response, the only way forward is a rapid and sustained economic recovery. We are, therefore, working to enable all parts of our economy to return to full operation as quickly and as safely as possible. We are amending the Alert Level 1 regulations to restore normal trading hours, for instance, for the sale of alcohol at retail outlets. We are also opening up international travel to all countries subject to the necessary health protocols and the presentation of a negative Covid-19 certificate. Now by utilizing rapid tests and strict monitoring, we intend to limit the spread of the infection through importation by those who will be traveling to our country.

A vacation to Lake Chelan made him a fan. Now Olympia big man Grant will sign with UW Huskies

When Jackson Grant was on vacation with his family in Lake Chelan, around 10 years old at the time, he saw a teenager shooting hoops on a basketball court near the family’s timeshare. Grant, being plenty social even as a younger kid, went over to join him, taking turns taking shots.

That teenager was Matisse Thybulle, who went on to a stellar career at the University of Washington, capped in his senior year, in which he was recognized as the top defender in the nation with the Naismith Defensive Player of the Year and the Lefty Driesell awards in 2019. Thybulle went on to be selected with the No. 20 overall pick in the first round of the 2019 NBA Draft and currently plays for the Philadelphia 76ers.

That week in Chelan was more or less when Grant started following Husky basketball, just before Thybulle committed to UW.

“My grandma started taking us to games up there to watch him play after that,” Grant said.

Now, it’s Grant’s turn to suit up for the purple and gold. The Olympia High School center will be signing his National Letter of Intent with Washington on Wednesday, Nov. 11, the first day of the early signing period allowed by the NCAA for sports other than football.

The 6-foot-10 senior big man was The News Tribune and The Olympian’s 2020 All-Area player of the year in his junior season, leading the Bears to a fourth-place finish in the Class 4A state tournament, its best finish since 2011. He averaged 17 points and 11 rebounds for Olympia last season.

Following Thybulle’s career helped turn Grant into a Husky fan over the years. He’d attend games and take pictures with Thybulle after the games.

“I’ve looked up to him a lot,” Grant said. “Just his work ethic through the years. I didn’t realize how good he could be. I realize how hard that level that he’s working at is and I really respect that.”

Grant said he hopes to follow a similar trajectory over the course of his Husky career, developing as a player over four years and hopefully turning pro one day.

“I don’t see myself as being a one-and-done player,” Grant said. “I see myself really improving. (Thybulle) really laid out a groundwork to be able to follow at UW.”

Grant was fortunate enough to lock down his commitment and go through the recruitment process before the coronavirus pandemic took hold and shut everything down. He committed to Washington last November.

“I feel super fortunate about that,” he said. “Some of the guys on my (AAU) team, they’re trying to figure out where they’re going to go. It’s been hard, you can’t do any in-person visits now. Those official visits helped me more than anything else. I’m so happy I got that out of the way before everything covid hit.”

Grant took his visit to UW last September, when he took in a Husky football game, naturally, but more important, spent time around the

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is departing Friday on a 10-day journey that will take him to seven different countries.

The leaders in all of the countries Pompeo is poised to visit have congratulated Biden on his victory in the 2020 election, highlighting the awkward, isolated position the Trump administration is currently in with the president refusing to concede. 

Though the president and top Republicans have refused to accept the results of the 2020 election, the world has already begun to move on from the Trump era.
