Much as I feel duty bound to write this, as we loved our time at The Willows. I'm also slightly reticent. Because I'd quite like to keep the place all to myself! You can do your Google homework and discover all the grand secrets surrounding the place, I'll just name check Einstein & Clark Gable - there, that caught your... More

After reading all the reviews of Hotels in Palm Spring for our first visit we decided on the Willows. I had some worries as it was a small boutique hotel, but we took a chance on it. It turned out to be a great decision. The Willows is a very unique place. It was a mansion desert retreat built in... More

Well, it was our 56th anniversary and the best place to go for a quick getaway was the Willows. We had the waterfall room ,which is one of our favorites-a lovely view-of you know what-plenty of storage and a nice ambience if you don't mind stairs. The innkeepers were wonderful and,as always, helpful and professional.My only tiny complaint was that... More

My husband and I had the pleasure to stay at The Willows last weekend. What a wonderful place. We loved the small, intimate feel, and the feeling of quiet and peace even though we were two blocks from downtown. The staff is amazing! Every need was met and more...from mailing a postcard for us to giving us passes to the... More

Staying a few nights at Easter was an absolute relaxation. Loved the personal welcome, the relaxed environment, the excellent pool area and of course the sun set drinks and the delightful a la carte breakfast in the morning. The Willows is perfectly located next to the incredible Palm Springs art museum, a must see. The location is also perfect as... More

Having just returned to London from The Willows after staying 5 glorious nights, I am already longing to be back in this beautiful and magical oasis in the desert. Truly a special experience, wonderful service and agree wholeheartedly with the other reviews and comments on the service already written about on here. It's the perfect balance of attentive but discreet... More

We ran off to The Willows for a four day mini-vacation this week and found a lovely luxurious historic eight room home with beautiful grounds. The Willows was peaceful, private and the service was spot on and attentive. We could not have asked for more and every member of the staff was professional and warm. I wouldn't call the Inn...

This is probably the best hotel we've ever stayed in. The setting is really beautiful with a dramatic mountain backdrop and azure blue skies, and the building itself is charming. The rooms are tastefully decorated with high quality amenities and free Wifi. The hotel provides breakfast, which they do in three courses - a muffin, a fruit dish and a... More

We felt like we walked into a sunny paradise on grounds fit for royalty, with a beautifully appointed peaceful room poolside. The breakfast beside the 50-ft rock waterfall was exceptional. Appetizers and wine on the terrace were such a treat as well. Innkeepers Daniel and Gordon were most accommodating to our needs and made dinner reservations across the street at... More

Lovely spanish style house, set against the hillside in beautiful grounds, with a large shady terrace , overlooking the town below. We stayed one night in the elegant Waterfall room, and enjoyed an excellent breakfast. Easy walking to local shopping area, and adjacent to Palm Springs Art Museum. What was most impressive however was the ambience created by the staff.... More
