The upscale Ritz-Carlton chain expanded its empire into the LGBT-friendly Palm Springs area.

The Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage opened this week, just outside Palm Springs, bringing more glamour to the desert getaway spot.

The project, Ritz’s first U.S. opening in four years, features 244 rooms, with almost all including patios and terraces. Some rooms even have fire pits, which are perfect for sitting by with a glass of pinot while staring at the dramatic mountain-scape (sorry, got a little enraptured there).

Other amenities include three swimming pools, a 25,000 square-foot spa with plenty of just-for-men treatments, and Vichy showers. The marquee restaurant is the State Fare Bar & Kitchen, with artisanal California cuisine and a vast wine selection.

Opening rates run about $379 a night, but Ritz is promoting the property for P.S. events like Coachella, Dinah Shore Weekend, and White Party, where costs are sure to spike. Find more info here.
