#59 of 78 hotels in Palm Springs
A study in modernism and minimalist architecture, the Movie Colony Hotel is a celebration of vintage style and forward-thinking hospitality in Palm Springs. Set in Southern California's Sonoran Desert and overlooking the former Movie Colony, once home to Old Hollywood stars like Cary Grant, Jack Benny, and Dinah Shore, ours is a boutique hotel with historic glam, designed by Albert Frey in 1935. True boutique accommodations offer private terraces or patios with views of the San Jacinto Mountains and the Palm Springs skyline, while a stellar location steps from downtown and the Design District affords a unique urban experience. Stay, play, and explore everything Palm Springs, the Coachella Valley, and the stunning Sonoran Desert have to offer at the Movie Colony Hotel, your destination for authentic hospitality and vintage charm in Southern California.

The property just looked sad. In need of paint. Leaves unraked everywhere. The "movie kitsch" doesn't make up for poor maintenance. Then the deception. The reservation was made confirming a free breakfast to be included. Then found out "oh we aren't doing that because of the virus". There are plenty of ways to offer a breakfast in compliance with the rules. They just chose not to try.

Hotel's Favorite
Just returned from a weekend getaway to palm Springs and took a chance on the Movie Colony Hotel. So glad I did! What a little gem in the desert -- the staff went above and beyond to accommodate...while the pool and lounge area weren't quite in full operation due to the combination of COVID19 and 120 degree temps, it was a perfect spot with that Palm Springs vibe. I will definitely be back, Close to the airport and town, to boot!

We stayed over the weekend. This is our favorite place to stay in Palm Springs! Its very clean, and Nate the Hotel Manager, is truly the charm of the historic hotel. He is friendly, knows all the places to eat. He makes our stay quite comfortable. Im looking forward to our next trip there.

This review is a little over due.... Date of stay: July 2020 First time staying @ Movie Colony Hotel. Where do I even begin... Nate the manager provides the most impeccable service! I had some trouble finding the parking as it was my first time, Nate walked outside, pointed us in the right direction, walked us inside, checked us in and showed us around the place & walked us all the way to our room. He is genuinely friendly and goes out of His way to ensure you have the best stay possible. Mind you we did go during covid & still had an amazing time. Yes you MUST wear a mask while walking around which we totally respect. Pool- The pool was open, you must wear your mask while walking to the pool. Everyone does social distance in the pool area. Pool is large and very spacious. There is plenty of spaces to sit / lounge with your little group. Rooms- Rooms are beautifully decorated & extremely spacious. Each room has a balcony or little patio of its own. (love this!) Hotel overall- The hotel is very clean & beautiful. We will definitely be coming back soon! The Movie Colony is ADULT only & pet friendly. You can lounge/ hang out by the pool without worrying about having too many people. During the weekend I was there we even swam at night. I 100% recommend the hotel. Thank you again Nate! You definitely made us feel at home & welcome. Your hospitality left such an impact we told all our friends about you, oh and about the hotel too. We will always come back!

I have been coming here for over 15 years and love it. It is the perfect Palm Springs location near the heart of everything yet offers a peaceful pool. If you are looking for a quiet escape this is perfect. Love the fact that the Movie Colony is adult only and dog friendly. Our dog absolutely loves it and so do we. Nate is a wonderful host and we are already planning our next trip.
