We loved the Colony Palms. Two story building, 49 rooms and 7 casitas, laid out in an L-shape surrounding the pool. The bar and restaurant face the pool. Although right on Indian Canyon Road, once inside the hotel, it is quiet ( except for the music blasting out of the speakers around the pool ) and calm.
The staff are exceptional, friendly, genuine and welcoming without being obsequious. they all seemed to have a certain pride in the hotel and were knowledgeable and helpful.
The restaurand is excellent, we had two fine dinners there. Broad menu, some real imagination, good preparation and informed server.
Coffee is available poolside from 0600, a definite convenience. Room was comfortable, with interesting decoration. Couple of minor issues, could not open bathroom window as the handle was missing and the shower. When I saw the Speakman shower head I was encouraged, but, alas the shower can only deliver a pathetic little dribble of water. It would be a stretch to call it a shower. Towels were a little thin for the price and positioning, and a tad threadbare.
Those gripes notwithstanding, we found the general ambiance welcoming. It would be even better if not for the loud music pounding out of the speakers on every side of the pool. ( you can't get away from it ). Mercifully, it is, at least, turned off early in the morning.
Bottom line, we really liked it, and would go back.
