Rooms & Rates
Intimate and exotic, the 4-star boutique Colony Palms Hotel feels like Marrakesh -- but in the desert of California.
Donning a white stucco exterior and three acres of land in trendy Palm Springs, the Colony Palms has just 56 guest rooms and suites. Each is decked out in eclectic Moroccan decor and plush amenities, including pillowtop mattresses, Italian linens, down duvets and pillows and marble-topped bathroom vanities. Deluxe rooms and suites have unique touches like a claw-foot tubs and a fireplaces.
An open courtyard, surrounded by stunning mountain views, is home to the hotel’s outdoor heated pool. Nearby, guests can yell “fore” at the O’Donnell Golf Club or tap into their artistic sides at the Palm Springs Arts Museum; both are less than a three-minute drive away.
The hotel is steeped in history; its roots date back to the 1930s, when mobster Al Wertheimer built the Colonial House as a front for his casino and bar operation. Renamed the Howard Hotel, it was owned by Robert Stewart Howard (whose father owned championship racehorse Seabiscuit) and actress Andrea Leeds. Famous hotel guests included Frank Sinatra and Elizabeth Taylor.
The hotel charges a $40 nightly resort fee that covers self or valet parking, Wi-Fi, morning coffee service and bike rentals.
