Just had a wonderful two-day break at The Willows in Palm Springs. Elegant spacious rooms, attentive service, excellent breakfasts, great wines and hors d'oeuvres in the evening and a lovely pool. Even though it was hot outside, it was very comfortable inside. And the staff were so attentive to our every need! We'll certainly come back again.

Room Tip: We loved the Marion Davies room - convenient, no stairs needed, quiet, very bright, great bathroom.

We were here last year for our anniversary and we are back again. This time ,we were in the Marian Davies room-much brighter than last year's Library room . The decor was lovely ,the bathroom was large and there was plenty of hot water. The beauty of this place must include the warm welcome we were given and the care shown to us by the staff. Breakfast was delicious-what could be wrong with eating a 3 course meal on linen tablecloths steps away from a waterfall surrounded by lush plants? In the evening, a variety of hors d'oeuvres were served along with some very decent wines.If you want a flashy place, don't come here. For laid back atmosphere and utter relaxation, you can't go wrong by staying at this gem.

Room Tip: Look at the web site. It is quite accurate.And-then choose. We loved the Marian Davies room.

Our 3 days stay at The Willlows was an extraordinary, most enjoyable introduction to Palm Springs. The wonderful, picturesque small inn, a most gracious staff, the delicious breakfast at the waterfall, the relaxing wine reception in late afternoon and a midnight swim in the pool will always remind us to come back!

The property and the hotel ( more of a home) were beautiful. The staff Steve, Gordon and the women could not have been more helpful. I loved our room, we took A bath which was lovely and the shower was great too. Another plus were the towels, you will want to buy them. The history of the property was very interesting. We had guests join us for wine on the terrace and they want to stay there next time.

Room Tip: I got to see several and they were all great

Excellent service and elegant accommodations. Very charming, definitely the place to stay in Palm Springs, particularly convenient for events at the Donnelly House or any other downtown Palm Springs event

The Willows is just 2 blocks from the heart of Palm Springs village but feels private, secluded, privileged. 8 rooms total, beautifully decorated with subtle, exquisite taste, with gorgeous antiques in every room. Bed and linens are luxury quality, bathrooms spacious and well-appointed. We stayed in the Loft which featured a claw foot tub with hand held shower (we would opt for one of the other rooms with both tub and shower next time). Breakfast is served in the indoor/outdoor dining room in front of a massive rock wall waterfall. Breakfast includes freshly baked muffins (creative recipes like corn-blueberry) followed by an interesting fruit dish (broiled grapefruit with honey, berries with vanilla yogurt and fresh mint)' and concluding with hearty entrees (portabella mushrooms stuffed with herbed eggs served with chicken sausage was exceptional). It is like having breakfast at the home of a dear friend who is a fabulous cook. Hors d'ouevres are served from 5:30 - 7 pm. Yum! We enjoyed dates stuffed with cream cheese and garnished with chopped nuts, stuffed mushrooms, asparagus wrapped with prosciutto and baked, avocado bruschetta with pesto, lime-cilantro marinated shrimp, and other tasty items served with a nice selection of wines. Grounds are manicured and colorful with meandering paths around the property. Many seating areas with beautiful views of the hillsides and waterfall. Pool area is luxurious and the staff regularly brings ice water and iced tea. Well worth the price; can't wait to return.

Room Tip: The Rock, Acanthus, and Palm are on the pool level; very nice if you'll be making a lot of use o...
