From the moment we got to the hotel we were greeted by staff. One of the gardeners of the hotel was kind enough to open the gate to enter the hotel grounds and just like that he set the mood for the rest of our stay at the Colony Palms. We got a complementary upgrade upon checking in and when...

The Colony Palms Hotel is a lovely hotel with a sophisticated and relaxed atmosphere. However, be mindful that during summer season certain services (such as meals/room service) are significantly curtailed. For example, Sunday -Wednesday only a modest Continental breakfast is available, which was a significant disappointment given that we aimed to rest and relax rather than heading into town first...

The Colony Palms is a beautiful hotel with wondferful history. We loved the pool, bar and the beautiful grounds. The restaurant was actually really yummy too. Unfortunatly, the rooms aren't up to par. The are decent looking (just decent....not wonderful) and clean, but they aren't very functional. There are no cabinets to put clothes away and my biggest complaint.....no vanity...

We visited the Colony Palms as part of our fly drive honeymoon in California. It was fabulous. August, we found out was off season for Palm Springs (hot hot hot) so the hotel was fairly quiet. We love quietness. The room was stylish and had an enormous shower and an astonishingly well stocked mini bar (full bottles of Tequila-Rock on!)....

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary getaway last week after choosing this hotel from the Tripadvisor reviews. I had booked a "Colony King" room, and upon arriving on a Thursday, was told that we had already been upgraded to a Superior room. This seemed like great news until we got to the room. It's hard to image...

There is nothing remotely close to the Colony Palms. I knew I found the perfect resort as soon as I called. Being here is like being at a friends house. The grounds are magnificent and intimate. Wonderful pool and happy guests and employees greet you at every corner. As I write my review I am presently in the emergency room....

we came for a quick 3 day get away for my birthday. I read a lot of reviews about the hotel and had some really good expectations. The hotel is located in a very convenient location. Just blocks away from the heart of downtown palm springs. The front desk staff are very helpful, informative and kind. However, we had the...

I loved this quaint boutique hotel! I do not have any complaints. The restaurant was amazing, the drinks were fabulous, the decor was to die for and the staff were all so wonderful. I already booked my next stay, I cannot wait!
