Historic, high end, perfect charm in the desert!

Absolutely loved it at Ingleside Inn, Palm Springs. The historic charm of the inn, is welcome in a town of stark post modernism. The Inn is a Spanish Style villa built to be lived in, and then converted into a hotel. It is small and charming and historically significant to Palm Springs, too. Celebrities and "normals" alike stay here for it's comfort and attention to customer service. The restaurant within (Melvyn's) is an institution with large portions of perfectly executed classic dishes such as Stake Diane made table side. The pool is simple and spacious with views of the mountain and comfortable lawn chairs. Overall, everything is a bit dated, but not in a bad way. It is like stepping back in time in all senses, including in the way you are treated by the hard working staff form the moment you get there, to the moment you leave. Respectful and charming. Helpful and experienced. No attitude, no hipsters, no drama. I can't wait to go back!
