This property is filled with enchantment around every corner, from the morning glory vined brook to the rose gardened pathway which leads to the jacuzzi with hummingbirds and butterflies everywhere....not to mention the most romantic ambience as you dine in Europa while a harpist plays heavenly tunes (Sat. nites) and delectable meals are impeccably served....pure sweetness! Especially for the couple... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2015

From what I have seen during my visits to Palm Springs, this is the most unique hotel that there is and that is why I keep going back to this place. Every corner of the grounds, every room has it's own history and character. The food at the onsite Europa restaurant is simply delightful so if you staying at the... More

We found Villa Royale through a TravelPony special. The property is older, harking back to the golden years of Palm Springs as retreat for Los Angeles power players. The rooms are quaint and charming if a bit dated. Solid brick walls mean that the entire compound is stone silent. Breakfast was included in our stay and while the menu is... More

This hidden '40s gem is close to downtown and full of historic character, pretty foliage, and deep swimming pools all to yourself in the summer. Breakfast is included and is served in your room the days the restaurant isn't open. The two bedroom villa is spacious and comfortable with unique furnishings. The staff members were helpful and kind. No resort... More

I stumbled on this hidden gem and thank God, that I did! Was catapulted back in time to a quieter gentler time in history. This is the kind of place that makes you think of movie sets and glamorous movie stars. I loved the lush grounds and hidden gardens, pools are clear and crisp and the spa is private. Loved,... More

Visited Villa Royale with my husband twice. Very impressive, lovely, and peaceful. Everything here just made my trip unforgettable. Should I visit Palm Springs again, I'll definitely choose Villa Royale.

Take a journey back in time to days of old Hollywood, this is the spot they stayed, played and ate in Palm Springs! This resort is unique, the rooms were very clean, with all the amenities, we modern day travelers expect. They have decorated the rooms with upscale antique furniture, so every room is different. Both pools and the Jacuzzi... More

If you don't stay here, you are messing up! My girlfriend and I were on vacation for our b-days and this hotel took us on really short notice after we cancelled a previous reservation at another hotel down the street (it was pretty much a party hotel where it was constant bass shaking the room.)

we recently spent two nights at the Villa Royale Inn, Palm Springs. Online, it looked very nice and the kind of place we would typically like to stay. The price was around $220/night plus taxes, so definitely a level up from a Motel 6. However, the reality was anything but. The entire property felt run-down & unkempt and the issues... More

Our family booked 7 rooms over the Easter Holiday weekend to attend a wedding at the Ace Hotel across the street. This was a older property but it seemed like it had a lot of character. The check in woman was very efficient and friendly but she was interrupted by a guest complaining the back swimming pool was not heated.... More
