We have been to the Willows many times. For this stay, we tried the Einstsein room- Not our favorite, but no complaints.I would have liked more light and a full length mirror. The private patio was lovely. There were 2 chaise lounges and towels-very comfortable and private. As always, we met interesting people and enjoyed the breakfasts and hors d'oevres....

The Willows is a wonderful place to stay. Everyone is helpful and friendly and the breakfast is wonderful along with everything about The Willows. 2 blocks from the main street and you feel like you're miles away. Thank you for creating heaven on earth!

The Willows is very small (8 rooms), very private (you can't even get onto the property without permission), full of character (each room is different, including those used by Einstein and Marion Davies). I particularly liked the service - very efficient but low key, not overwhelming. The included breakfast is served on a beautiful patio. The inn has a lovely...

What a delightful gem! A luxuriously peaceful hideaway with romantic rooms, wonderfully friendly staff, and creatively delicious treats to start and end your lazy days. It was like visiting a friend's private estate where you step back into the 1930's and imagine you glimpse Clark Gable and Carol Lombard lounging by the pool. Be sure to check out the charming...

We spent our last two nights of our 25th wedding Anniversary tour at the Willows and it was a perfect end to a fantastic trip. This hotel is stunningly beautiful, from comfortable rooms to the quiet pool, lush gardens and the awesome breakfast room. The staff treat you like friends rather than guests and lay on a lovely early evening...

Delightful hotel in every way, beautiful historic building and location in the wonderful Palm Springs. the breakfast room was particularly delightful. The staff could not have been more helpful or pleasant, exceptional service at all times. Wonderful gourmet breakfasts and evening canapés. This is simply one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed in.

We had our first stay (2 nights) at The Willows last weekend. Every aspect of the inn is superb. Our room (the Palm) was interestingly laid out but very comfortable. breakfasts and afternoon wine and snacks were delicious. The staff acted like hosts in their own home, and we felt like honored guests. The location across the street from one...

Staying at this hotel was completely and utterly satisfying. Attention to detail, caring about the guest, addressing any needs. We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2014 and there is not enough room to detail how great the experience was. The service is discrete and non intrusive but all encompassing. Stay here and you will love it

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
