Tranquil Oasis in Palm Springs

5 out of 5
by from Westchester County, NY
Posted Feb 14, 2017
Pros: Convenient to town, yet quiet.
Cons: They have it all right.
Location: Many restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance.
My wife and I spent six days at Colony Palms. Essentially this two-story hotel surrounds the facilities which include a large pool, hot tub and first rate restaurant and bar. The hotel has been lovingly maintained over its eighty year life and includes very attractive landscaping. Colony Palms has retained the feel of the past without any sacrifice to the usual modern amenities: free internet connectivity, spa services and excellent HiRes TV. The staff is highly responsive and pleasant. Room service promptly attended to our needs. Bikes are available at the front desk. Parking is generous, One can see the nearby mountains from many parts of the property.But perhaps the best feature of Colony Palms Hotel is the serenity one feels in the midst of Palm Springs busy environment. One feels cloistered, yet the "action" is nearby and several fine eateries are within easy walking distance.

This hotel wis a few small changes away from heaven, our stay was very relaxing, rooms were very comfortable, but needs soundproofing, there was no gym like the website said and the spa was only open on the weekend, but wow great little place to stay if you like to lounge around a pool with a few drinks!

Great location and ambiance

Pros: Loved the pool and surrounding ambiance of palm trees and other plants to give it a 'secluded' feel. Very spacious poolside environment.
Cons: Purple Palms restaurant/room service can be considered pricey for some - but it's worth it!
Location: Great location - one block away from downtown boulevard with boutiques, restaurants, cafes and more.
Upon checking in to Colony Palms, I was warmly greeted by the bellman and front receptionist. Check-in was a great experience, as I was treated to both a beverage and a complementary room upgrade! The room itself was spacious and lovely decorated, with regular upkeep from housekeeping during the day and in the evening to keep it fresh and sightly. The hotel is located one block from the main Palm Springs 'strip' and is within walking distance to a delightful selection of restaurants, boutiques and cafes. Although with the secluded poolside ambiance and tasty options offered by the Purple Palms restaurant you might not need to wander too far. I had a great time and would definitely return to Colony Palms for a future visit.
