I stayed at this hotel last minute and it was great. The staff was very accommodating and pleasant! Room was small but perfect for just me. Very close to downtown. Bummed I didn't get to enjoy bar, it looked like fun as I walked in late night.. Hope to enjoy a longer stay next time.

This is a boutique hotel with lovely grounds, decorated in the regency/art deco style, with plenty of private spots to read a book or just chill by one of the three very pretty pools. We chose the one bedroom suite which did dent the budget somewhat, but we like our space. The room was very nicely appointed, clean, comfortable, and...

I loved our holiday in Palm Springs but this was despite our stay at the Avalon, not because of. The reviews and website are very very deceptive. The bungalows looked nice and were set in a beautiful little area (these are what attracted us to the hotel online but there was no availability when we booked) - perhaps the experience...

The grounds and pools are very tranquil. Staff were great and food and drinks were very good. We had a detached bungalow which was ok the building is from the 1930s, the shower was a bit funky with the dials for hot and cold water a bit of a pain to work. The bed was fantastic, the size of the...

We needed a quick weekend escape, so booked the Avalon. We had stayed there before for a wedding and had an amazing time so wanted to try it again. Its centrally located so you can walk around downtown no problem. The property was busy for an event, but from start to finish we had great, friendly service. Its an easy...

The staff is great. The grounds are beyond beautiful. The bungalows and rooms are excellent I love tis hotel. Can't wait to go back....If I had to say one thing negative about this hotel it would be that it's so far to get to. I live in NY.

West Bloomfield, Michigan
Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

Awesome retro/mod hotel. Felt like I was living in the 1950's. Rooms to be expected given the era of property. My husband was a little unimpressed with the bathroom situation (i.e. Bad lighting, old school tub surrounds) but I didn't mind. If they are available, I would definitley recommend splurging for a bungalow. Food was awesome, modern California style. Drinks...

So glad we chose Avalon. The food and drink are amazing, gorgeous room (studio), and super helpful, gracious staff (special thanks to Aaron the valet manager and his staff). Am already looking forward to making this an annual trip and stay.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A jewel box nestled in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, the historic Avalon Hotel and Bungalows Palm Springs rests at the foot of the rugged San Jacinto Mountains on four acres of fragrant, beautifully manicured gardens. Its Spanish architecture punctuated by a series of secluded, private bungalows, calls forth the iconic, storied Golden Age of Palm Springs, exuberantly updated with Hollywood Regency interiors by renowned designer Kelly Wearstler. At Avalon every experience has been hand-curated by a team of collaborators and bona fide hotel aficionados. You might say it's a calling. A penchant for wanderlust. A mind for singular retreats and unrepeatable vibes. We hold an affinity for one-offs, anomalies and the irrefutable allure of a personal touch. Our trademarks are small batched. Think of us as your own private hideaway. All you have to do is stay. ... more   less
