Why We Love This Hotel

  • With just 67 rooms and three small outdoor pools, this is a relaxed, boutique resort setting
  • Downtown's main drag is two blocks away
  • The on-site spa typically offers discounted treatments Monday-Friday

Originally built in the 1930s, the Avalon 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 dry 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 $75 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 serenity

We used to stay here in the 90's when it was a different name. It was quite quaint back then. The rooms now are big but lacking. No dresser. The furniture was lacking throw pillows and was quite uncomfortable. The blocks they used for coffee tables were just stupid for comfort. Their was no water pressure in the shower, I had to use the sink to get enough water on my hair to wash it. The shower chair kept falling down on it's own. I want to like the place again, but just can't do the stark white sterility.

Our room was ok but it appeared to be missing some furniture both in the room & bathroom, which took away from the ambience.

Shannon, Natalia, Jason 1 and 2,, Nicholas, Don, and the spa staff were so wonderful. There are many names I'm forgetting, which doesn't lessen their warmth and attentiveness! Christian and the ladies at the front were also great! They all loved our dog,Gidgit and were so sweet to her.
