Take a lively armchair visit to some of the exceptional resort hotels throughout the United States. Along the way, host Samantha Brown experiences first-hand what makes these hotel destinations popular, appealing, unique, and memorable. Each episode presents an entertaining "story" of up to two different hotel destinations, complete with encounters and eccentricities that creatively show and tell what makes each hotel a great experience. Episode 27: O.K., so you've done the L.A. thing - Sunset Boulevard, the hot spots, the restaurants - and now you want to get away...inland. Well, before there was Palm Springs, there was the original desert hideaway: Riverside, California. And there's no better place to start in Riverside than at the historic Mission Inn. Samantha Brown checks into one of California's oldest and most celebrated hotels. Spanning an entire city block, Samantha finds out that The Mission Inn is more than just a typical hotel: It's a museum, an art gallery, a monastery, a mission, a home, a boarding house, an aviator's shrine, and a hotel. This Spanish-Mission Revival-designed inn is filled with rare artifacts collected from around the world by its original owner, and their stories are even more priceless. How many hotels have you stayed in that have a century-old chapel? Well, the Mission Inn has two! This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.
