Hotel Description

Turning a Travelodge into a fashionable boutique hotel is no easy task. But it’s par for the course in a place like Palm Springs. It’s long been a popular resort town, but now, thanks to a stylistic rejuvenation and a little music festival called Coachella — maybe you’ve heard of it — it’s a magnet for a new generation of Angelenos. The hotel competition is stiff around here, and a chain motel just won’t do. So after a brief stint when it was known as the Curve Hotel, these one-time budget lodgings, first built in the 1960s, have been reborn as the V Palm Springs.

With its laid-back communal spaces and retro vibe, the V Palm Springs isn’t your standard desert resort. There are swimming pools, yes, but they’re filled with saltwater. Guest rooms have private balconies, but when the air cools down, you’ll probably gravitate to one of the hotel’s four gardens, or the modern fire pit, or to complimentary meditation classes, or to live music on the lawn. You can valet the car in and out, but you’ll probably be happier using one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles. You get the picture.

Guest rooms at the V Palm Springs are simply outfitted in décor inspired by the American southwest: silver arrowheads, Native American prints, paintings reminiscent of O’Keeffe, a faux steer head mounted above the bed. Standard amenities include flat-screen TVs and custom-made bath products. Breakfast is served al fresco at Elixir, which specializes in vegetarian plates and modernist Tiki cocktails as the day rolls on.

So what’s with the V, you ask? The name is a reference to the hotel’s original V-shaped swimming pool. There’s a second pool now, and a pair of hot tubs, ideal venues for relaxing after an evening out on the town — the hotel is less than a mile from the center of Palm Springs — or star-gazing when the sky is clear, preferably with a potent Elixir Punch in one hand. Style and substance: this motel has come a long way.
