Apparently located in Sonja Henie's old home, the Villa Royale is a very pleasant place to spend a few days. The room we had was spacious and while not decorated at a Four Seasons level was very comfortable (there are some rather small rooms, so be careful).
The hotel is small and built around a large, well maintained pool. The restaurant on the property was excellent for dinner. It was nice to be able to walk out of our room to dinner less than 50 feet away. The breakfast was good but with limited choices (meat and eggs and pancakes were available.)
The hotel is in a quiet residential area. But, it would be a long walk to downtown Palm Springs.
All of the front desk staff was excellent. Jack, in particular, made us feel very welcome.
We visited in November on a Travel Zoo voucher. With that, it was an excellent value. I not sure about the cost of the better rooms, or of the competition, in season.
