The Villa Royale Inn is a charming boutique hotel tucked away in a residential area a short drive from downtown Palm Springs. The hotel is formed out of a converted Mediterranean-style estate that once belonged to the figure skater and starlet Sonja Henie. The property features a series of courtyards, two smallish pools and a semi-private jacuzzi.
For a reasonable price we secured a suite with separate living room and bedroom. The rooms were recently renovated, well-appointed and very comfortable.
Villa Royale is not one of the mid-century, Mod-styled small resorts that caters to the hipster crowd; the guests tend to skew older and well-heeled, couples on weekend retreats, not families. The resort is therefore quiet and dignified and offers a good atmosphere for relaxation.
Service was somewhat spotty, although we didn't require much so we didn't miss anything. The included breakfast served in the restaurant's terrace was quite good. The hotel was completely full on our visit and parking was tight - although we always found a spot (even if it was the last one) in the hotel's small lot.
