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 and smart TVs. 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.

We spent 2 nights in the middle of May at The Willows and were upgraded to the Marion Davies room. The Inn is made up of 2 homes tucked up in front of the the hills overlooking P.S.. There is no lobby -- you are met at the gate by a staff member who shows you to your room. There

This place is amazing. It's tucked away at the quiet edge of town. It feels like you're staying at the private mansion of a fabulously wealthy person, because you are. We booked late, so got one of the few rooms left available, which wasn't as expensive as the others. I was

Thank you so very much for your amazing review! And golly, we apologize for the mockingbird, he certainly wasn't an invited guest. (We do try to keep exterior lighting to a minimum.) Thank you for having a wonderful sense of humor about the wildlife on the grounds. We have earplugs available and hope you will return for a visit in the near future.

Very comfortable and clean. They have created a very relaxing environment and you never feel crowded or rushed. Great customer service, except they over-“sell” the food/drink aspect. There are minimal food/drink options and don’t expect to be able to order anything while at the

Thank you for your review, and for choosing The Willows, and we regret that you we disappointed with the food options. We do try to accommodate all manner of dietary restrictions and certainly don't want to disappoint or mislead. All food and drink at The Willows is included at no further charge. Ordering is possible from Le Vallauris, the fine French restaurant across from The Willows, but it is not vegan and is subject to charge. There are several excellent vegan restaurants in Palm Springs though and innkeepers can certainly make those recommendations. Again, thank you for staying at The Willows. We hope to see you again in the future, and please let us know in advance what you would like to eat and we will make every effort to have that available.
