We are a family of 4 with 2 young children. Hotel is very well decorated with a colonial style to it. Room is comfortable and air condition/ fan worked perfectly to fit the hot weather. Pool is small and water slightly murky. Guests started entering the pool after breakfast and before you know it half the pool was busy really... More

If I was rating this hotel just on my experience I would probably have given it 2 stars but because I want to be fair and look at this hotel objectively I gave a 3. Let's just go through the Pros and Cons. Pros... 1. It is cute, it has some style 2. The cleaning crew was amazing, they really... More

This is my favorite place to stay in Palm Springs. In fact, it's my favorite boutique hotel. The service is what you would expect from a five star hotel. I am still giving this hotel a five star rating, but on my latest visit I did notice a few minor issues: the pool was a bit dirty. I don't know... More

I don't know anything more genuine and authentic to say about this hotel, except for I love everything about it. From the moment we arrived I felt like a weight was taken off my shoulders and the longer we stayed the less we wanted to return to our real lives and even leave the hotel premises. The service is exceptional.... More

Loved our stay at the Colony Palms. Staff was extremely friendly and did a wonderful job making sure we had an excellent time. Our main goal was to just sit back at the pool and relax and we were able to do exactly that. The CPH was the perfect place to spend the day lounging in the sun without huge... More

What a delightful hotel. Just the right size. Lovely rooms, perfect size pool. Good food and service. Perfect retreat from the rat race. Highly recommended. Not sure if it gets crazier over weekends but during the week super chilled. Def will return.
