Why We Love It

  • Out of the many design-focused hotels Palm Springs, the Avalon's old Hollywood swank really stands out
  • With just 67 rooms and three small outdoor pools, this is a relaxed, boutique resort setting
  • Downtown's main drag is two blocks away
  • Free yoga and meditation classes held on weekends, and the on-site spa typically offers discounted treatments Monday-Friday

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 is catered to families, while the other two are adults-only. Four-legged friends are also welcome (dogs must weigh under 40 pounds) for a $175 nonrefundable fee; dog walking and sitting can be arranged in advance for an additional fee.

Relax with a yoga or meditation classes (held on weekend mornings), or work out at the 24-hour fitness center. 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 grounds and setting/location are great.

In general, furniture and carpets were worn. Apparently a water pipe broke in the hotel and my room was without water of any kind. The hotel didn't offer any concession, even though there was no working toilet or water of any kind. The hotel offered a later checkout, but didn't even offer bottled water. At checkout, no discount was offered and including on the $40 resort fee.
