Twin Palms is the former residence of Frank Sinatra, newly renovated and awesome. • The Ace Hotel has been our personal favorite since it opened. It has a relaxed vibe, seventies decor, an amazing restaurant, bikes to borrow and plenty of room by the pool. • Korakia is a smaller boutique hotel with a Moroccan influence, a great pool, bikes to rent and it's right around the corner from downtown PS. • The Parker Hotel designed by Jonathan Adler (and a great garden designed by Elysian Landscapes here in LA). • Desert Hills is a classic PS hotel that will be lower key than some of the trendier places and maybe even a little more authentic. Bottom Row • Hope Springs in Desert Hot Springs is about a 15 minute drive from Palm Springs, but perfect if you really want to get away. They have 3 hot springs, no tv's, an amazing breakfast spread and a beautiful space. They also offer some great spa services. • Horizon Hotel is another newly renovated classic originally designed in 1952 by William Cody. In it's heyday, it was a private oasis for the Hollywood elite, including Marilyn Monroe and Betty Grable. • Palm Springs VRBO vacation rentals are cheaper if you're a big group and give you privacy and freedom. Plus there are so many great mid century homes to rent it's mind boggling. • The Del Marcos is a 60's swinging classic. Beautiful Pool, close to downtown PS and not too big. • The Viceroy Palm Springs for those of you who want some upscale glamour and a touch of Kelly Wearstler in your vacation. We're pretty sure this hotel single handedly brought yellow into vogue when it was unveiled. Images: 1. Twin Palms Hotel; 2. Ace Hotel by Laure Joliet; 3. Korakia Hotel; 4.
