Several Coachella Valley hotels are offering special rates this weekend for evacuees fleeing the Silver Fire.
The Parker Palm Springs, clearly one of the more exclusive properties in the valley where weekend rates in the winter season can top $500 a night, is offering rooms for $99 a night, plus tax and a $30-a-day resort fee. Proof of residency is required, and the offer also applies to Friday and Saturday night stays. Reservations must be made by phone: (760)770-5000
The Riviera Palm Springs also has special rates for evacuees, who should use the promo code Fire when booking. Midweek rates are $79, plus taxes, and weekend rates are $149. The hotel’s $28 resort fee has been reduced to $15 for evacuees. Reservations must be made by phone: (760) 327-8311
The Hilton Palm Springs is offering a rate of $95 per night, plus tax, which includes a full breakfast for up to two people. Use the promo code EFR when calling. Reservations must be made by phone: (760) 320-6868.
The Renaissance Palm Springs is offering $79, plus tax. Parking is $10 for self-park or $20 for valet. Call (760) 322-6000 and use the promo code UUZT.
The Homewood Suites in La Quinta is offering $79 per night, plus tax, for fire victims through Thursday, Aug. 29. The rate includes a full breakfast buffet and light dinner Monday through Thursday. Call (760) 391-4600 for reservations.

The special rates for evacuees are not unlike those offered a few weeks ago when the Mountain Fire prompted the evacuation of thousands from communities like Idyllwild and Pine Cove, though with a little shopping, deals are available.
The hotel booking app Hotel Tonight had listings featuring deals like $119 at the Colony Palms, $79 at the Alcazar or $52 at the Best Western, all in Palm Springs. These rates were only for Thursday, however. New deals get posted every day after noon.
