    The Colony Palms Hotel caters to stylish guests looking for trendy accommodations in the heart of Palm Springs. Originally opened in 1936 by reputed mobster Al Wertheimer, this boutique property has quite the storied past: It housed an illicit brothel and speakeasy in the 30s before switching ownership and becoming the Hollywood hot spot for the next several decades. Such famed names as Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan and Zsa Zsa Gabor have all passed through the Colony Palms. Today, the property remains chic and trendy, with guest rooms boasting stylish red and black decor and Italian linens, as well as flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. For many guests, the highlight of a stay at the Colony Palms is the cuisine served at the Purple Palm Restaurant & Bar. The in-house, Moroccan-inspired spa also earns rave reviews for its varied treatments. What's more, th gorgeous, 65-foot saltwater pool also provides stunning views of the surrounding desert and mountains. However, this property does not provide a fitness center, and a daily resort fee is tacked on to your nightly rate.

    Putting a colorful twist on the throwback 1970s-style motel, The Saguaro in Palm Springs marries charm and chintz between rainbow-colored stucco walls. The guest rooms at the hotel are decorated in an explosion of loud colors and its pool is surrounded by blindingly yellow parasols. Some recent guests say they felt overwhelmed by the bright atmosphere but most appreciate its fanciful decor. This funky hotel in the desert does take one thing seriously: food. The hotel is home to El Jefe, a desert cantina that's highly recommended by recent guests, as well as a pool bar and Rocco's Electric

    Ingleside Inn
    Palm Springs, CA
    4-star HOTEL CLASS
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 5 based on 128 reviewsTripAdvisor (128)
    Free Parking
    Free WiFi

    The Ingleside Inn is a lasting vestige of the "old" Palm Springs. Built in the 1920s and once frequented by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Clark Gable, this Spanish-style resort is close to the casinos and restaurants of the downtown area. You shouldn't expect the trendy decor and state-of-the-art facilities of some of the area's newer hotels, but for many visitors, that's just part of Ingleside's charm. Convenient amenities  such as free Wi-Fi access and parking  are included in the nightly rate and the inn's daily $30 resort fee. Spend your days lounging by the pool, and then, for a taste of old Hollywood glamour, grab dinner or some drinks at Melvyn's. Round out your evening with a few hours at the hopping Casablanca Lounge.

    If you're looking to use your Marriott Bonvoy points, but still want a boutique hotel experience, consider the Triada Palm Springs, Autograph Collection. Nestled in the Movie Colony neighborhood in downtown Palm Springs, this property is housed within a Spanish hacienda and surrounded by the San Jacinto Mountains. Thanks to the hotel's central location, recent guests said it's easy to walk to the downtown area's shops and restaurants, with some reporting that they left their car for much of their stay and instead relied on their own two feet to explore. Aside from the location, travelers also appreciated the hotel's two pools and recommended grabbing a casual meal and drinks poolside at the Iluminara Restaurant & Lounge. Reviews for the property's rooms were a bit more mixed: Visitors loved how the bright decor matched the property's Spanish architecture, and appreciated the modern amenities like the TVs and free Wi-Fi access, but others felt the rooms could use an update.
