Adding to the record at hand: I wrote a review about this tucked away gem last year, but went back recently and wanted to update my review. The Villa Royale Inn is wonderful. Although, the owner has made some effort to maintain the landscape a little more, there is still plenty of gardening that needs to be done. And they... More

Stayed here just the one night but would highly recommend it. Not the cheapest place in town but it has quality and comfort aplenty. A good breakfast is included too. The rooms are beautifully presented, the pool area and jacuzzi are very clean and inviting. Sat in the jacuzzi under the stars. Simply wonderful. Highly recommended.

This is old Palm Springs at its best! Three beautiful courtyards with sparkling blue pools. We rented 1 room for us and a suite for my parents and they were both perfect! The suite was huge! We had a lovely continental breakfast delivered to our rooms and spent the sunny December morning in our PJ's around the pool. We are... More

From what I have seen during my visits to Palm Springs, this is the most unique hotel that there is and that is why I keep going back to this place. Every corner of the grounds, every room has it's own history and character. The food at the onsite Europa restaurant is simply delightful so if you staying at the... More

Made my reservation online, unfortunately my plans changed. I cancelled my reservation a month in advance and was charged a $60 processing fee. Are you kidding me? I will never stay here and strongly recommend anyone who would considers this hotel, take your business to a place that values you as a customer.

We had come here first many years ago, the charm had us sold. When we came back we could hardly believe how desperately in need of an overall the room needed. The old cabinetry was in very bad shape, just about everything felt dingy worn and ready to go. It looks its best at night outside, the restaurant glows and... More

This is by far the sweetest place out of 4 that I have stayed in the Palm Springs area. The pool has the best views of the San Jacinto Mountain range, or stars and palm trees over tile rooftops. And the complimentary breakfasts area gentle, familial way to start each day with few decisions The property is across East Palm... More

My husband and I just stayed there last week for 4 days. We came just to relax from our very hectic life and saw the deal through Travelzoo so booked 4 nights. We loved this place. The staff was very friendly. We ate at the restaurant which was excellent as was the service. Breakfast was included every morning and it... More

The Villa Royale is centrally located in Palm Springs and a gem-of-a-compound, completely walled off with fantastic caring staff. This is the original property and home of Sonja Henie, the former three time Olympic Figure Skating Champion! Thirty-one private rooms -- two pools and a fantastic old-school restaurant. The General Manager, Chris, took care of all our needs, and seemed... More

8f you want to stay in a quite, unique boutique hotel, this is a must. It's old Palm Springs at its best . Also, eat at the restaurant. Wow, what a meal, drinks and a harp player is one of a kind. Love thus place but it's not eating. It is dining. ..enjoy.
