Wonderful place, lovingly maintained to allow a visitor to get the feel of a more charming and graceful era. Kind, helpful and very knowledgeable staff. Grounds beautifully maintained. Just minutes from town. We look forward to our next visit!

We enjoyed two nights at the lovely Willows in Palm Springs. Location was excellent, walking distance to everything and right next to the museum. Breakfast each day in the beautiful dining area overlooking the waterfall was great. There is however one caveat.... If you stay in the room above the kitchen, beware the intense smells of morning cooking. Our room... More

We absolutely loved The Willows. The location is in the center of downtown Palm Springs, but off the main road so you still feel secluded. The Inn was very quiet and relaxing. The staff was phenomenal and so accommodating and welcoming. The breakfast was delicious and came with a gorgeous view of a waterfall. This was our first visit, but... More

This is by far the best accommodation in Palm Springs if you only want to be with your traveling mate. The perfectly restored mansion has only eight rooms and does not allow guests of guests to enter. Which at first is disappointing since it is the kind of place you want to show off to your friends, but once you... More

My husband and I enjoyed every minute of staying at The Willows. The breakfasts were lovely with silver settings and china plates. Delicious offerings including a freshly baked, warm muffin; a fruit course and a breakfast entrée. We stayed 4 nights and the menu changed daily without any duplicates. Their appetizer and wine service in the late afternoon was wonderful... More

I return to Palm Springs each year for 2 reasons: The annual Tour de Palm Springs fundraiser bike ride and The Willows Historic Inn. As usual, as soon as I arrived at the Inn, I was welcomed as if returning to family. In fact, the same staff has been there for years and they always remember to inquire about my... More

My husband and I stayed at the Willows in Dec 2015. It was a great time of year to visit - we were able to sit out by the pool during the day and use our fireplace at night. Pros: * Breakfast at the Willows was lovely - great food in a beautiful setting * We also enjoyed the wine... More

Located within walking distance of the main strip of Palm Springs. Spotlessly clean. This is the place where Clark Gable and Carol Lombard spent their honeymoon. Einstein stayed here many times. There are only eight rooms. We stayed in the loft. If you have problems with stairs you might not want this room. That being said all the rooms are... More

If you want to splurge...this is the place to do it. Nestled amidst mid-century modern hell, is this 1924 classic BnB/Neo-Mediterranean, restored brilliantly! We stayed for three great nights. Received a complimentary room upgrade! Wine and hors d'oeuvres...amazing breakfast. The staff is wonderful and attentive. We felt like we were in a guest house at Hearst Castle! It will be... More

High quality EVERYTHING! From the building, to the grounds, to the linens, bedding, furnishings….really, not a single complaint. Plus, it was spotless! We will be back for sure. The staff was extremely nice and helpful. The Christmas decorations were beautiful, tasteful
