I stayed at the Villa Royale together with my husband in November for one night. We are from Europe and stopped in Palm Springs on our roadtrip through California and were amazed how beautiful the weather is in Palm Springs in winter. The sun seems to be a safe bet there.
The hotel is in a side street in a quiet neighbourhood, but the location was great and very close to the core of downtown to where one can easily walk.
The room was charming and very clean and we were surprised about how great value it was. There are two beautiful pools in the resort and we spent most of the day relaxing in the sun. The atmosphere is very romantic and quiet. There are beautiful flowers, bushes, several fountains and hummingbirds everywhere and there is a beautiful view of the mountains and palm trees.
We also looked at some other rooms as we want to go back sometime and we heard they are all different. The ones we saw were all very nice.
The hotel also has a great and very cozy restaurant called Europa that has a 4 AAA Diamond rating. We had a lovely and romantic dinner there.
The Villa Royale is definitely a great place to stay for a romantic weekend or a relaxing vacation.

It was much more than we expected. Nice gardens, beautiful, clean room (30 room-hotel), 2 large pools, 1 jacuzzi. We loved it. Very quiet clean hotel with restaurant on-site. We would stay there every time we’re in Palm Springs only if it was a little less expansive. Otherwise wonderful stay.

Wonderful, spectacular time we had at Villa Royale Inn. We were looking for a place not busy with a lot of people and were we can feel safe. I noticed when we stepped into the registration office we made the right choice. There were water fountains everywhere and it was beautifully landscaped. Even though we love traveling together, my mother likes her own space, so when I mentioned this to Clark when making the reservation, he put us in a room around the corner from each other with our own private patio and water fountain. There is an award winning restaurant on site which was perfect. They even have a Bar that opens at 5:00 p.m. where you can have a drink before the first seating at 6:00 p.m. The hostess greeted us with a smile and seated us near a window looking out at the patio. Our waiter David suggested specialty drinks, appetizers to the main course and every bit of it was just satisfying and delicious. This hotel exceeded our expectatiions. Looking forward to going back next year or possibly sooner.

My husband and I were very impressed with the level of customer service. We went for a quiet getaway, and when we had dinner(always great) the waiter mentioned that we may want to sit away from a "boisterous group." We mentioned that we had seen them and that our room was close to the group, he immediately said that we should check with the front desk and that they would take care of us. The front desk showed us another room, made sure that we were ok with it and basically it was an upgrade, a larger room and defintely away from the group and much more quiet. It's wonderfull to see that they took the extra step without us having to go and ask. It's one of the many things that sets this charming hotel apart from others.

My wife and I had a fantastic time at this little jewel of a hotel. Our stay was from Monday-Wednesday and it was very quiet. We stayed in the 3rd courtyard where the rooms surround a very lovely pool. We had one other couple sharing the courtyard, but we hardly saw them and we essentially had the pool all to our selves. Each room is unique and they are nicely appointed. The service staff is very friendly.

I stayed at the Villa Royale recently it was my first visit to this hotel but absolutely not my last. I was looking to relax living in LA is stressfull at times and as soon as I walked into the gates of the Villa Royale it felt like half my stress was gone. After a dip in the pool a drink at the bar and a soak in the hot tub LA felt like it was on the other side of the planet.

This hotel provides the feeling of privacy with nice size rooms and private enclosed patios. The bar pours a good drink and the Europa Restaurant makes a great meal. The hotel is located close to all of the Palm Springs action, it has great mountain views, the grounds are big and well taken care of, flowers were in full bloom, and the weather was perfect.

If you are looking for a good place to relax and you want to leave the city behind the Villa Royale is a great place to visit. I wish I was there right now....

We found this hidden little gem through selecthotels.com. We were going to Palm Springs for Thanksgiving and needed a hotel for the night. All the name brands were booked or exorbitantly priced as it is their season.

For $125 we not only got a wonderful little retreat -- living room with fireplace with bed in an alcove, but, it also included a private brick garden. We stayed in room 105 (not all rooms feature a private garden.) Further, the room was tastefully done -- more like a private home than a hotel. If that were not enough, the Villa Royale also includes a full breakfast in the price. This would be a wonderful romantic getaway.

The hotel has a lovely restaurant, Europa, which is a bit pricey; however, the wait staff (Anne was our waitress) was delightful without being obtrusive. In fact, the staff at the hotel was definitely attentive and gracious.

We will definitely return!
