A stay in Palm Springs’ most recent new hotel project not only ensures a good night’s sleep, but also contributes to the Desert AIDS Project.
Random Haus, a 12-unit newly remodeled hotel-condominium development targeted toward the gay market, will contribute 10 percent of the room rate to the Desert AIDS Project when visitors use the code DAP when making the reservation for dates in 2013. In addition, Random Haus will contribute 30 percent of the room rate to the AIDS service organization for rooms reserved on April 25, which is Dining Out for Life night. And if a traveler books Thursday, Friday and Saturday of next week, Random Haus will contribute 100 percent of Thursday’s rate and 10 percent of the Friday and Saturday rate to Desert AIDS Project. Guests must use the the promo code DOFL to make the contribution.
“We wanted to make sure that we gave back,” Tom Bauer, of Joseph Allen Agencies, a Palm Springs public relations and graphic design firm, told a crowd of several hundred Tuesday night during the hotel’s open house. Bauer also serves as sale director for Random Haus.
And since these units are also available for what’s known as “fractional ownership,” where the purchase price is divided up into portions allowing the condo to have multiple owners, Random Haus will contribute $500 from each fractional sale to Desert AIDS Project. Each unit can have up to 12 owners.
Each of the 12 pet-friendly Random Haus condominiums, ranging in size from 1,100 to 2,100 square-feet, has two to three bedrooms and two to three spa-like baths, along with completely equipped kitchens. All units are furnished in a sleek, modern style and have stunning views from private patios and balconies, as well as concierge service for gourmet grocery and liquor delivery. Just a short walk from downtown, on San Lorenzo Road, the mid-century boutique property is stocked with amenities including a centrally located pool and spa with cabanas and an infrared sauna, a koi pond that wraps around the property, and a social gathering area with a fire pit and barbecue.
Rates for the condos range from about $400 to $900 a night for weekends in May. As of Thursday afternoon, only two units were still available for next weekend. The Hudson, with its two large bedrooms and baths, as well as dining area other amenities was listed at $915 a night. The McDowell, with one master bedroom and bath was listed at $575 a night.
