If you are arriving before 4pm we can request an early check-in. You will be met by a Festival staffer who will be there to assist you in any way.
Once you are settled in you are invited to stop by the Hospitality Suite, have drinks and appetizers, say hello to Lucy and Gail, and meet the staff that will be with you during your stay.
In the early evening you join the other guests at a reception in the hotel where you will be entertained by one of Palm Springs' most popular divas. Gennine Jackson, a Festival favorite who a few years ago did a tribute to Whitney Houston at the Divas Brunch.
