Hotel Description

It’s been a long journey for the Spanish Colonial gem that is the Colony Palms Hotel. Founded in 1936 by the (alleged) mobster Al Wertheimer, it became a favorite of the Hollywood in-crowd before they eventually decamped for more distant destinations. But now, a couple of name changes later, the refurbished and redesigned Colony Palms is once again a luxe and stylish destination, one that consciously recalls the glamour of the golden age of Hollywood — and Palm Springs — even as it attracts a new generation of boutique-hotel travelers.

The look is an elegant fantasy in a Spanish/Moroccan style, with all the modern-luxe trimmings, from flat-panel televisions, pillow-top mattresses, and down duvets to marble-clad bathrooms stocked with C.O. Bigelow bath 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 or the mid-century modernist Colony Palms Suite.

There’s a pool and a spa, the latter a 65-foot salt-water affair, which is naturally Moroccan-themed as well. And the hotel’s restaurant, the Purple Palm, is more than a hotel kitchen — it’s 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.
