Simple luxury with extremely comfortable rooms including fridges, cable TV and powerful A/C.... great pool area with plenty of space and lots of 'floaty' things to use.... powerful Wifi and a great location only 5mins from downtown. But best of all is the personal touch which the owners add. You can tell this is a passion project for them and... More

Quick last minute overnight to Palm Springs. It was a holiday weekend and we found this place a 5-8 minute drive from the city center. The room was spacious for just a couple and the bed was comfortable. I was surprised that there was no juice selection as part of the breakfast and also how quickly the few items served... More

We loved it all! The property is a marvelous architectural gem with wonderful views of the mountains. The buildings are newly renovated with extreme architectural sensibility. The place is simply beautiful, pristine clean and provides recreational amenities that are usually not provided elsewhere. The service is impeccable. The breakfast is amazing too. This was simply the best place we ever... More

I had read all of the amazing reviews and they were all spot on. This is the best place! I arrived around noon on my check in day after a ride in on my motorcycle from Vegas. I was not expecting to get in that early but to my surprise the room was ready and they had given me an... More

We read all the wonderful reviews previously and our experience was even better than we could have imagined. The owners, Gary and Kathy are wonderful people. They make your stay so comfortable and memorable. All the staff was accommodating... More

This hotel is great! The owners are friendly and very welcoming. The hotel itself is artistic and beautiful. We enjoyed waking up to the sunny, bright white mid century room. The breakfast was not only delicious but was presented in a beautiful way. Everything at this hotel is very thought out. Lots of love put into this place! I highly... More

I visit Palm Springs often as am a big fan of midcentury modern architecture for which PS is justly famous. The Monkey Tree Hotel is located at the edge of a midcentury modern neighborhood, the Racquet Club Estates. There is a wonderful and intact mid century fire station, a mid century elementary school, a mid century library and dozens of... More

This boutique hotel spares no expense in making their guests feel like royalty. Wake up in your deluxe room personalized to make you feel like you walked right into 1960s glamour. Every room is different and amazing. Walk right out of your room to a homemade breakfast of scones, pastries, granola, tea, coffee and more. Relax poolside or recover from... More

I arrived late Friday night and woke up Saturday morning in Palm Springs circa 1960. This hotel is a gem and the couple who re-opened it has done a phenomenal job of restoring its 60s and 70s vibe while also bringing modern elements to the table and making it a healthy destination unlike many other hotels in PS. From the... More
