Our room, the Library, was beautifully appointed, immaculate, spacious. We did not get the open views we had hoped for, but were compensated with a private patio with a waterfall. The drawback of our room was a compressor located next to it making noise from time to time. Although we are sensitive to noise, we would not hesitate to return... More

Very few dining or accommodation experiences deserve the praise I want to heap on the owners and staff at The Willows. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Everything from start to finish was perfect. Harmony is a jewel—kind, empathetic, always smiling. Gordon was equally helpful, checking in my wife early and taking care of her until I arrived later that... More

Absolutely beautiful in every way. We’ve stayed in several of the rooms and each one is lovely in a slightly different way. What they have in common is they are all comfortable, serene, and (very important to us) exceptionally clean and well maintained. The three course breakfast is far, far beyond the usual fare served at bed and breakfasts, or... More

The property is close to the airport and a good gym (EOS), very private, is 150 feet across the street from an excellent restaurant, has beautiful serene views, attentive staff and a wonderful breakfast. We stayed in the Einstein room which had a private patio several feet from the bed. I couldn't have asked for much more. I don’t normally... More

The Willows has a friendly understated elegance about it. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming, whilst allowing guests to have their privacy. The Loft room was perfect for us and breakfast was excellent - a different menu every day. It has to be one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in and definitely a reason to return... More

While only a 3 minute walk from the heart of the Palm Springs scene, The Willows is an enclave of quiet serenity, privacy, and luxury. Rather than the place to see and be seen, it's the place to get away from it all in the lap of luxury. Amazing breakfast, impeccable service.

This was our first stay at The Willows. We chose to stay there to celebrate a special occasion - birthday. We were not disappointed! It has been meticulously maintained and offers a truly rich travel experience that is second to none (at least we thought so). The beautiful (original ??) wood floors, the elaborate ceiling detail in the "breakfast" room,... More

A vacation at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn feels like a visit to a friend's country estate; or rather, an acquaintance who has welcomed some very famous friends into their home over the years. Nestled among stunning mountain vistas, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn has been a Hollywood favorite for nearly a century. Today, this Mediterranean villa has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of the 1930s. Mahogany-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces are accented by modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed wireless,in-room DVD players and iPod docking stations. A three-course gourmet breakfast next to the waterfall and nightly wine and hors d'oevres are included in the rate, making for an exceptional value. Tour the extensive gardens or relax by the pool. From the luxurious comforters and Egyptian cotton towels, no detail has been overlooked in this secluded desert oasis. ... more   less
