We love The Willows! We recently returned for our 4th visit. Everything about The Willows is magical from the moment you enter the gated premises. We inhaled the fragrance of the colorful spring flowers as we made our way through what became our home for the next several nights. You quickly feel as if you are visiting friends after meeting...

Wow! An incredibly majestic and peaceful place to stay and a wonderful way to spend a weekend in Palm Springs. You may think it has to be a joke that The Willows consistently gets 5 out of 5 on here... well, it isn't. From the swallow-you-up-and-forget-about-the-world matresses, to the claw-footed bathtubs, elegant food and breathtaking views, The Willows doesn't disappoint.... More

All of the previous reviewers accurately describe The Willows. It's a small, charming, historical home that has been lovingly converted to a Bed & Breakfast Inn located within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs. Everything about the B & B is designed to encourage guests to relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of life. The breakfasts and evening appetizers are... More

If you are looking for a wonderful place to unwind in the desert, this is it! The Willows is tucked into the side of a mountain just 2 blocks from the main street through old town Palm Springs. The Willows was built in 1924 by a wealth attorney for his family. It is fully modern with air conditioning, comfortable beds... More

The Willows in Palm Springs is a 4-diamond resort in every sense of the way. From the moment you arrive until you depart. There's plenty of privacy too including a locked and gated entrance. With a quick phone call to the Inn they come down to greet you, let you in, and help you with your luggage. The Inn was... More

From the moment we drove through the front gates and were greeted by Gordon, to the attention and care from all staff members, and Chef Joan's sumptuous gourmet breakfasts The Willows knows how to pamper guests. The location is private yet within convenient walking distance to downtown Palml Springs. The ambience will have you channeling Clark Gable!

My husband and I just spent 2 nights at the Willows to celebrate our birthdays. I cannot even express how special and amazing the stay was. The Willows is a five-star experience from the moment you call to make your reservation to the time you (sadly!) check out. The service is impeccable - everyone is so friendly and ready to... More

As a former travel writer, I've been aware of the Willows for two decades, but previously had to satisfy myself with touring the property (contrary to popular misconceptions, travel journalism pay doesn't come close to covering a five-star experience like this!) Looking for a New Year's getaway this year, I finally realized hubby and I had finally "grown up" enough... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A vacation at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn feels like a visit to a friend's country estate; or rather, an acquaintance who has welcomed some very famous friends into their home over the years. Nestled among stunning mountain vistas, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn has been a Hollywood favorite for nearly a century. Today, this Mediterranean villa has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of the 1930s. Mahogany-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces are accented by modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed wireless,in-room DVD players and iPod docking stations. A three-course gourmet breakfast next to the waterfall and nightly wine and hors d'oevres are included in the rate, making for an exceptional value. Tour the extensive gardens or relax by the pool. From the luxurious comforters and Egyptian cotton towels, no detail has been overlooked in this secluded desert oasis. ... more   less
