Set in a stucco building dating from 1936, this bright, gay-friendly hotel is just over a block from the mid-century modern furniture shops, galleries and restaurants of Palm Canyon Drive, and 1.2 miles from the luxe shopping of El Paseo.
Bright guest rooms, casitas and suites feature graphic Moroccan-themed designs, Italian linens, flat-screen TVs and iPod docks. Some have fireplaces, claw-foot bathtubs, private patios, outdoor whirlpool tubs and mountain views. Room service is available.
A stylish, fine-dining restaurant offers poolside lunches. Other amenities include a spa (surcharge) with a fitness center and croquet on the grounds.
The Casita rooms are booked frequently at MyGayGetaway.com.
We wanted to avoid a "scene" hotel, we didn't want a "chain" hotel, and we didn't want to have to stay out in Rancho Mirage...so, based on reviews we chose Colony Palms. We could not have been happier. CPH is an adorable, small scale boutique property with a gorgeous pool, beautiful grounds, and a lovely restaurant and bar staffed with charming people. Our junior suite was spacious, had a large walk-in shower AND a claw-foot tub, lots of closet space, a comfy king bed and a fireplace. The room was on the first level of the main building (right next to the temporary reception area), very convenient to the pool, the spa, the restaurant, the complimentary coffee service in the morning, and the parking valet. Valet parking is also complimentary, which is a nice bonus. We walked to dinner three out of the five nights we were in Palm Springs to spectacular dining (Copley's, Workshop, and Jakes), and to breakfast at Cheeky's. We chatted with the general manager one evening while we were waiting for our car, and she could not have been more gracious. Honestly, this place met or exceeded our every expectation. -frqyx, Saint Louis, Missouri
Small Historic Close to Downtown and Beautifully Done
I love this hotel. We come every year and always have a wonderful stay. It is historic, perfectly designed and quiet and super relaxing. Hacienda style so the pool and restaurant are elegant and private. Each room is different so get to know the kind of room you are choosing. More reasonably priced than the other "chic" small properties, this is a very special place and an easy walk into the heart of things. -expectquality1942, Santa Barbara, California
5 Star Hotel!!
We returned recently from a nine day stay at the Colony Palms Hotel. It was our first visit there but will definitely not be our last. The Colony Pams is "first class" in every respect. We thoroughly enjoyed our casita (relaxing in the jacuzzi while watching the hummingbirds fly around the honeysuckle) as well as the pool. The restaurant (Purple Palm) exceeded all our expectations! Armed with a list of neighbourhood restaurants provided by friends we began venturing out shortly after our arrival. We quickly discovered, however, that the Purple Palm had no real competition and for the remainder of our stay it was breakfast, lunch and dinner there.
We would like to particularly thank Karen at the Front Desk as well as Patsy, the assistant manager at the restaurant and her co-workers, Jeff, Ben, Michael and Patricia who provided impeccable service. We are looking forward to our next visit. -BKandWK, Montreal, Canada
Old Palm Springs Brought to Life
This is a very unique hotel having an hispanic theme. red tile roofs, manicured garden, comfortable pool, uniquely decorated rooms, and a 5 star restaurant - - The Purple Palm. Staff is overwhelmingly helpful. -RCL123
Loved this old hollywood PS hotel
I Loved this old hollywood style PS hotel. This continues to be one of my fav spots in PS. The location is awesome and close to The Workshop which is a great dinner spot. I have to say the Purple palms restaurant is probably my favorite spot to eat in PS and always recommend it people going out to PS and happens to be in the Hotel. You can sit outside gazing at the pool and the beautiful mountains while having some of the best food and drinks in the area. It's a more of a quiet boutique hotel which is more suited for couples in my opinion. The staff is great in the hotel and the restaurant and always helpful. -shopLane, Newport Beach, California
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend here! The valets and front desk staff were so friendly and helpful. Our casita was very well done and loved the outdoor bath/lounge. The jets weren’t working on the outdoor tub and the hot water in the shower was spotty but we would still come back. I would suggest replacing the shower heads with Speakman or something else more powerful. Though we didn’t get in the pool, the hot tub was amazing and sooo hot! The grounds are beautifully maintained and the architecture is gorgeous. -openmindedtraveler, Austin, Texas
