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

The owners Kathy and Gary have thought about every detail, from the relaxing music by the pool, the excellent wifi, the plugs by the side of the bed,... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the monkey tree. We live in Palm Springs and stayed at the Monkey Tree for a staycation for a couple nights. It was so relaxing lounging by the pool and spa reading. The complimentary breakfast was amazing, Gary is truly a culinary whiz. We enjoyed the homemade scones and the... More

The Monkey Tree Hotel is a perfect place to experience Palm Springs. Calm, authentic, respectful of the architecture of the 60ies, view of the mountains and palms. Don't miss the complementary Sangria (lemonade for the kids) and nuts at the pool around 4pm.

There are so many wonderful things to say about this meticulously restored Albert Frey mid-century modern desert oasis. Driving into town from the airport can be a bit...beige. And then the road curves to the left and we saw a bright yellow wall and squealed "OMG, look at that house!" Then we saw "The Monkey Tree Hotel" on the wall... More

My fiancee and I loved this place when we stayed. The decor and ambiance is vintage Palm Springs. Everything was very relaxing from the rooms to the pool to the breakfast. We can't wait to go back to this unique spot.

I want to go back to The Monkey Tree Hotel as soon as possible! Originally from New York, I visited The Monkey Tree recently on the tail end of another trip with a couple of girlfriends and was blown away by the experience. The hotel, designed by #AlbertFrey, was recently renovated and maintains it's original mid-century modern vibe, transporting you... More

This is my new favorite spot to stay in the desert!!! Everything about it is fabulous. From the retro decor to the blue pool with floating flamingos!!! There are only 16 rooms, so everyone has a prime spot at the pool- there's no stress about having to save pool chairs here ! The rooms are great and the bed was... More
