4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2007

We had a Deluxeroom and stayed 2 nights. The room is quite spacious, the bathroom is definitly spacious with a tub, shower and a separate toilet. The ambiance is really colony style, the pool is good, also the jacuzzi. Bathrobes are complimentary and free of charge. Tons of thick towels. Very friendly staff at the reception. Free coffee and tea at the bar in the morning. Parking space next to the hotel and also free of charge.

I've enjoyed Palm Springs more and more over the past few years. All of the upscale hotels seem to have something to offer, but no hotels have it all - beautiful grounds, well trained articulate staff, excellent food and a great energy. I know it's asking a lot, but coming from LA where you can have anything you want, my wife and I are looking to be blown away.

The Colony Palms exceeded all expectations. The grounds are so misleading from the street - it's truly a hotel you don't need to leave once you arrive. You HAVE to try the restaurant but make reservations first! My only complaint was that locals swarm the place and we were not able to get "prefered" seating as a hotel guest but that only meant we had to wait an extra 20 minutes, a small price to pay for the quality and presentation of the food.

Polite valet, attentive desk staff and the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in (and I'm a Four Season traveler.)

When you are in Palm Springs, spend the extra money on a one of their Casitas and enjoy the Hotel that offers it all.

This is a charming hotel with a very helpful staff BUT the thermostat is set at 72 degrees and ran at 74 degrees. No one can change it to a lower OR higher temperature. I was unable to sleep in the heat. People may wish a warmer or cooler room for various reasons, but you can't have this here.

If this were an environmental reason, then there would be solar panels, recycling bins, native plants, and fluorescent bulbs. There was none of that, so the reason must be to save money.

If they would change this issue I would stay there again, but if the comfort of their guests is not important I sadly will have to find another hotel.
