I just spent 3 nights at The Willows in Palm Springs and it was the best hotel stay of the year. This stunningly beautiful, exquisitely maintained estate home is a bit of Palm Springs from the heyday. I adore historic inns but too often the renovation, furnishings, and maintenance don't meet expectations. The Willows gets an A+ on all, including lovely, relaxed service and delicious 3-course breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres and good wine--no, really, good wine--choice of 4 when I was visiting. I spent early mornings and sunset sitting out on the wrap around terrace looking out to the San Jacinto mountains. Do not deny yourself this marvelous experience in Palm Springs--easy couple of block walk to main downtown area with restaurants and shopping. I cannot wait to return!
