We got into Palm Springs just before the super heat wave hit
[114 expected this week]. We can't say 106 was great but the evenings and mornings were beautiful. Even better was our first stay at the Movie Colony Hotel
which we went into hesitantly, partly because
the name seemed so corny [visions of themed rooms made us nervous], the website photos were SO great we were also skeptical that the property was not going to live up to our expectations. We went with a friend's recommend to back our decision up on this one.
We can honestly tell you that the photos were accurate [we took our own to vouch], the rooms were great, they have a complementary wine hour, free dvd's and the property is just a couple blocks off the main drag in case there is a margarita mishap you can walk home. In the name of research, of course, we put that portion to the test and made it home safely without incident.
We give it a super thumbs up for style and a overall good stay. You may want to wait till September or October or watch the weather closely to plan a quick exit if the weather takes a dip.
