Last minute getaway

With summer fading (I say “fading” because it’s still hot out but technically fall), you may want to have one last hurrah. Yeah, I know school is back in session and you’ve thrown yourself back into work, but you know you still want to do something. Why not a weekend — heck, make it a weekday — getaway to Palm Springs?

I’ve mentioned a deal from Spa Resort Casino before, but this deal is just for the ladies. (Actually, I think that’s technically illegal, but it’s being touted as a “girlfriend” getaway package. I’m sure anyone could book this.) Here are the deets:

  • two nights
  • $100 spa credit
  • $50 dinner credit for The Steakhouse
  • $50 in free slot play
  • either “Sleep-in Smoothies” or “GottaGettaJava” coffee and tea service for two
  • two Indian Canyons passes and two box lunches

The deal goes for $400 Sundays through Thursdays and $500 Fridays through Saturdays. Split those prices in half, and that’s not bad for what you’re getting. The deal is good from Oct. 1 through Nov. 24. But in the grand tradition of winning free stuff via Facebook and Twitter, you’ll have the chance at winning one of these packages if you friend or follow one of them between Oct. 1 and 25.

Staycation, all I ever wanted

Summer is coming to a close, but don’t fret if you’re still hankering for a mini getaway. There are still deals out there for those of us in denial of having to go back to school/work.

  • Maison 140: Looking for a place to put up your wedding guests? This West Hollywood hotel is offering a wedding package where you pay just shy of $20,000 for a weekend to rent out all 43 rooms for your friends and family. And no, the package doesn’t include actually having your wedding at the hotel. What you do get, in addition to the rooms, includes a glass of champagne on arrival, continental breakfast, private Vin et Fromage tastings in the hotel’s Bar Noir, Wi-Fi and overnight parking. Pricey, yes. But the rooftop pool is pretty darn cool…

  • Spa Resort Casino: Through Sept. 30, this Palm Springs hotel and casino is offering a Paradise Nights package that includes a room, dinner for two, a 25-minute spa treatment, $25 in slot machine play and a dip in the hot mineral springs for $164 a night. Sister property Agua Caliente in Rancho Mirage also has a package good through the end of the month: a room, $25 in slot play and two-for-one buffet for $89 per night (Sunday through Thursday) or $129 (Friday and Saturday).

  • Terranea: If you’ve got kids, I imagine finding a place that’s fancy and kid-friendly is tough. Terranea on the Palos Verdes peninsula is trying to change that with a family fun package.¬† The deal includes 50 percent off a second room for the kids, use of a private cabana at the pool, admission for one child to the resort’s kids camp with the purchase of an adult spa treatment, and a child’s breakfast with the purchase of an adult entree. The family package starts at $355 per night for the first room, which makes the second room $177.50.
