The Monkey Tree Hotel by AvantStay is a private 16-room boutique hotel nestled against the backdrop of the gorgeous San Jacinto mountains on a large one-acre property in Palm Springs, California. Originally designed and built in 1960, the hotel re-opened in 2016 after a restoration by its current owners to its original mid-century modern design. AvantStay’s renowned management ensures a first-class experience focusing on experiential amenities, guest services, and award-winning design. The hotel’s colorful suites are situated around a central heated pool, each with its own retro design, modern fixtures, and private patio. Lawn games, a fire pit, ping pong table, and a generous BYOB policy ensure that the fun never ends. The hotel also boasts the area’s first Scandinavian spa, which includes a dry sauna (may be affected by COVID-19), hot tub, and cold plunge. Use the spa to rejuvenate, re-energize, and recover from a workout or a day in the desert. Experience Palm Springs, AvantStay style.

Had an amazing time staying at A Place In The Sun Hotel! It felt like an oasis. The history of the property is quite impressive, truly an icon of palm springs and its modernism era architecture. Ask the staff to tell you about it because you might just be staying in the same room Marylyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, or Walt Disney enjoyed! So cool! Super friendly staff were always available via text whenever I needed anything. The contactless Check-in was super convenient because I was sent all check-in info by email and could walk straight to my room when I arrived! Feels safe. The property was well maintained, and my room very clean with high-speed internet. Superb location, right next to downtown and just a short walk from hiking trails in Tahquitz Canyon. Lounging in the pool looking up at the mountains was definitely my highlight. Can’t wait to be back soon and end my days stargazing in the hot Jacuzzi Spa.

The Monkey Tree is great! They have all the amenities you need. They are very flexible and easy going. Lots of attention to detail in the decor inside and out. I recommend for a mellow, relaxing weekend with a cool Palm Springs vibe.

We had a wonderful time at The Monkey Tree Hotel. The whole vibe was laid back and very cool. The pool, just steps from our room, was nicely heated and the hot tub was available to really warm up. It was a bit windy one of the days, but we stayed in the pool and didn’t feel the wind. Microwave, fridge/freezer, and coffee maker in our room was very convenient. They also have a toaster and microwave on the common “living room” area. Staff is very nice and accommodating. Highly recommend!
