My husband and I have stayed at the Colony Palms Hotel four times over the past four years -- twice in a deluxe room, once in a suite, and once in a casita. We have always looked forward to our getaways at the Colony Palms because it was a quiet, tranquil kid-free zone, perfect for couples and singles. Unfortunately, our... More

Dear Jessica Y., Thank you so much for your review, I am happy to hear that you have enjoyed our resort multiple times and I apologize that you were disappointed in your experience this time.

On our first visit to the Palm Springs area to attend a wedding, this resort was setting. The entire property consists of small casitas and rooms on the ground or second floor surrounded by beautiful grounds. The pool is the center of activity. Meals are served close by. This is not a modern spa resort. It's old school and laid... More

Colony palms is a beautiful hotel with a lot of history. The basic rooms are nice enough, they have an awesome little bar with snacks (the prices are ok- some things are overpriced as usual, but some are reasonable). The bed is comfortable and the showers spacious. There are some signs of wear, but it's an historic hotel. The grounds... More

I chose this hotel for our 25th wedding anniversary. We met in the desert and married here 25 years ago. Pretty awesome hotel. Great pool. Only thing that's not great is there was only 1 chair in the room. Not very comfortable for sitting. Great outdoor space in our casita.
