The stark landscape of the desert may not seem like the ideal setting for artistic expression, but in Palm Springs, art is as celebrated as relaxation.

In the 50 or so years since renowned architects—including the likes of Albert Frey and E. Stuart Williams—rebuilt this town into a haven for the ultra-modern esthetic, Palm Springs has emerged as a getaway where stunning creativity can be seen at every turn.

Find your own muse at Avanti, where this week's Escape delivers a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays, in a Standard Room ($99), a Classic Suite ($129), or a Premium Suite ($159).

Or, make it a weekend getaway: Stay two nights, Fridays and Saturdays, in a Standard Room ($119), a Classic Suite ($149), or a Premium Suite ($179). All options include two complimentary bike rentals and daily breakfast for two.

Structurally, this family-owned boutique hotel is every bit the Old Hollywood hideaway, but after a May 2012 renovation, this ten-room hotel is also a chic retreat. Every room features eco-friendly bath products, a flat-screen television, refrigerators, and microwaves. After a dip in the outdoor pool and a nap on a shaded lounge chair, slip into a cozy bathrobe and use the hotel's free Wi-Fi on your private patio.

Later, pedal to the Kaufmann House and the Tramway Gas Station, or move along Palm Canyon Drive and stop by Lappert's Ice Cream for a cone of guava sorbet. Finally, park at the Palm Canyon Galleria, where you'll find scores of vintage loot, including Tiffany jewelry, Italian pottery by Raymor, and all manner of locally made art.

What are you waiting for? Paint your masterpiece with this week's Escape.
