A few weeks ago, here in Los Angeles, we had what was referred to as Carmageddon. This was a weekend smack dab in the middle of summer in which the 405 freeway was closed. As I imagined what a nightmare this would be staying in town, I decided to get out of dodge and find a peaceful and relaxing place to retreat for two nights.
The destination was La Quinta Resort and I had a Spa Villa Suite to enjoy and do nothing but swim and watch my NASCAR races. What a perfect idea to come out to the resort and a nice way to get out of the mayhem taking place back home in L.A.
It was a beautiful landscape and the service was top shelf. I went back and forth from the pool to my room to check on the race and even got a little work done from the lap top on the resort's free wifi network. Next time I need another get-a-way spot you can bet you'll find me back here.
Here is some info on La Quinta:
