What I liked:

Location was great! It is very close to downtown and the uptown design district. The atmosphere is very nice as well, trendy but relaxed at the same time. The central pool area is a nice hangout area, especially at night. Hotel staff is very friendly.

What the hotel could do better:

The rooms are just so so, not stylish, not that comfortable. Bathroom is average. Lighting is horrible. As an architect, you can see all the places where the hotel tried to cut back on interior finishing cost. It is not a room where you'd feel spoiled or even comfortable in for the amount of money you are spending. Another criticism is on the landscape design, which is just passable, not charming at all. This was a big disappointment for Palm Springs where planting is so important.

Hotel Description

There are two ways to go with the rehabilitation of a classic motor inn like the Thirties Spanish-style Colonial House. Keep it simple, cheap and funky, smoothing out the rough edges while making the most of the place’s built-in charm. Or else do what the owners of the Colony Palms did: turn it into a high-end boutique hotel, complete with spa treatments, concierge service and exotic fine dining.

After an extensive renovation the interiors bear no traces of standard desert-inn kitsch. The look is a sort of California Moroccan one, with all the modern-luxe trimmings, from flat-panel televisions and down duvets to marble-clad bathrooms stocked with brown-bottled Gilchrist & Soames products. For extra space and privacy (and a hot tub on the patio) book one of the casitas, and for more book the chandeliered and hardwood-floored Winner’s Circle Suite.

There’s a pool and a spa, the latter naturally Moroccan-themed. The hotel’s restaurant, the Purple Palm, goes a little over the top at dinner — it’s not just a hotel restaurant but an upscale Mediterranean fixture on the Palm Springs dining scene, serving inventive modern dishes paired with wines from California and around the world.

How to get there:

Colony Palms Hotel is a mile and a half from Palm Springs International Airport.
