Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Originally built in the 1930s, the newly rebranded Avalon Palm Springs (formerly the Viceroy Palm Springs) brings a dose of Old Hollywood glamour to the desert. The vibrant white, yellow and black interiors hail from celebrity designer Kelly Wearstler.

The rooms tend to be on the smaller side, but the hotel makes up for it with amenities: Guests are greeted with a glass of bubbly upon arrival, and each room has complimentary Wi-Fi.

The three outdoor pools and two Jacuzzis offer a welcome respite from the desert heat. One pool caters to families, while the other two are for adults only. Four-legged friends are also welcome for a $175 nonrefundable fee (dogs must weigh under 40 pounds); dog-walking and -sitting can be arranged in advance for an additional fee.

Relax with yoga or meditation classes (held on weekend mornings), or work out at the 24-hour fitness centre. The on-site restaurant provides indoor and alfresco dining options for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Though it feels tucked away, the hotel is just five blocks from downtown Palm Spring’s shops and restaurants.

The staff was friendly and the grounds were nice.

The room was filthy, there were stains on the curtains, bathrobes and towels. The black out curtains and holes in them so light was coming through and the floor looked like it hadn't been mopped in months.

The room they gave me faced the street (noisy, no view) when there seemed to be nicer rooms of the same category available. I also don't appreciate "resort fees" for stuff I don't use or that should just be part of the regular rate. When booking through TravelZoo the website neglected to include the resort fee in the price quote - didn't discover that until I had already booked!

The Avalon is PERFECT for a romantic getaway! I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Took a quick two night trip from Los Angeles with my boyfriend on a Monday and Tuesday night in September and the property was calm and mellow. We stayed in room 104, a one bedroom bungalow and it was fabulous! Honestly, you could just stay in the room the entire time it had everything you'd need, including it's own private patio and full kitchen plus dining room. I was very impressed. One of the pools is just steps away from the front door, but this room in particular is set just enough back from the pool area, you still feel secluded. I loved that the pools were open 24 hours as a midnight swim on a desert night was quite enjoyable. The hot tub is surprisingly kept hot during summer, too, which was a plus if you still like to get in a good soak. The entire staff was so accommodating and friendly. This property is truly a gem in the desert.
