Ingleside Inn's Chic Roomside Martini Service

This twist on room service comes with, yes, a twist.

PALM SPRINGS... has been in your vacation dreams for weeks, and you've finally toodled your way to the sunny clime, and you've found yourself at the elegant Ingleside Inn, and while the thought of beginning your getaway with something cold served in a tall glass appeals, you can't bear the thought of getting out of your comfies and leaving your comfy room.
