I spent 19 days at Casa Cody (in four different suites, including the magnificent historic adobe house, once frequented by Charlie Chaplin and Elke Sommer) as part of a work assignment at the Palm Springs International Film Festival, followed by a four day holiday. Extremely well-located (especially for the film festival), the grounds of this clean, quiet, charming, historic bed and breakfast inn are just two blocks from the central intersection of downtown Palm Springs, and one and one half blocks from the impressive Annenberg Art Museum. A fantastic hiking trail begins in the museum parking lot. Casa Cody is an oasis of quiet and charm, full of citrus trees and desert flora. Sometimes you can see humming birds. The furnishings of the the different suites (like little cottages or bungalows) are simple but perfect, and Indian-influenced. Several of the rooms I stayed in had fireplaces equipped with Duraflame logs. The beds seemed new with blissfully firm mattresses. The bathrooms had plentiful new plush towels, plus bigger towels for the swimming pools. The kitchens were well equipped with fridge, microwave, oven and stove, but mostly I opted for the ample free morning breakfast poolside which included hot oatmeal, coffee cake, cereal, fruit, english muffins and bagels as well as juice, milk, tea and coffee. It was a pleasure to be able to sit on the peaceful grounds in the sun (on comfortable deck chairs) with my laptop as well as have high speed internet access from my room. There was plentiful free parking and the management was always friendly and helpful. Certainly you can find more luxurious places in Palm Springs, but few with the genuine charm and value of Casa Cody.
