We have been staying at the Willows for 14 years and always have a great experience. The management staff is the same and Gordon is truly a wealth of knowledge about the history of the Inn and the area. We come to charge our batteries and always leave refreshed and a little sad to have to leave. We suggest a... More

Elegant, sophisticated and full of character. The Willows is a one of a kind property that just makes you feel special. We stayed in the Acanthus Room-- one of the smallest rooms, but very cozy. The bed was no doubt the most comfortable hotel bed I've ever slept in. High end toiletries and linens were the perfect touch. The living... More

The Willows is a very special place in the heart of Palm Springs yet whisper quiet and private with a glorious outlook over the mountains. The word "Inn" does not do it justice. Our Library room was so atmospheric with fireplace, wood panelled ceiling and private courtyard. The breakfast room was a delight as were the homemade breakfasts and staff... More

We have been to the Willows many times. For this stay, we tried the Einstsein room- Not our favorite, but no complaints.I would have liked more light and a full length mirror. The private patio was lovely. There were 2 chaise lounges and towels-very comfortable and private. As always, we met interesting people and enjoyed the breakfasts and hors d'oevres.... More

The Willows is a wonderful place to stay. Everyone is helpful and friendly and the breakfast is wonderful along with everything about The Willows. 2 blocks from the main street and you feel like you're miles away. Thank you for creating heaven on earth!

The Willows is very small (8 rooms), very private (you can't even get onto the property without permission), full of character (each room is different, including those used by Einstein and Marion Davies). I particularly liked the service - very efficient but low key, not overwhelming. The included breakfast is served on a beautiful patio. The inn has a lovely... More

What a delightful gem! A luxuriously peaceful hideaway with romantic rooms, wonderfully friendly staff, and creatively delicious treats to start and end your lazy days. It was like visiting a friend's private estate where you step back into the 1930's and imagine you glimpse Clark Gable and Carol Lombard lounging by the pool. Be sure to check out the charming...

We spent our last two nights of our 25th wedding Anniversary tour at the Willows and it was a perfect end to a fantastic trip. This hotel is stunningly beautiful, from comfortable rooms to the quiet pool, lush gardens and the awesome breakfast room. The staff treat you like friends rather than guests and lay on a lovely early evening... More

Delightful hotel in every way, beautiful historic building and location in the wonderful Palm Springs. the breakfast room was particularly delightful. The staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant, exceptional service at all times. Wonderful gourmet breakfasts and evening canapés. This is simply one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in.
