If you go to Palm Springs I don't think there is a better place to stay then the Movie Colony. I was a little apprehensive to write a review because I wanted to keep this gem of a hotel to myself but after further thinking, everyone should be able to experience it. This was my first time to Palm Springs and I was a little nervous. We are a younger couple and I had heard PS was for old people. We needed a relaxing/ fun weekend and we got one. My fiancée and I travel a lot and have stayed in some wonderful hotels/resorts (Ritz Carltons, Westins, Loews, etc) and I can honestly say our experience at the MC was one of the best stays we've ever had. (Not to mention the value) The rooms were extremely comfortable, cool and refreshing. (room 15) I'd say the only downside is the size of the bathrooms. A little tight. (Not really anything you can do about it but I felt it was worth mentioning) I'm not going to go into detail about the various perks b/c others have done a wonderful job outlining the experience, however I'd like to make special note of the cocktail hour, complimentary snacks and beverages in the room and the bicycles. A+. (We loved our bike ride) Not being nickel and dimed for every little thing makes this hotel stand out. The intimate atmosphere is really what makes this hotel special. We met several couples while we were there. It was great meeting other people. We had so much fun with the other guest and the hotel staff. We sat out by the pool all day, enjoying the PS sun and talking with our new friends. Having use of the outdoor kitchen was perfect for making drinks and cooling off. The staff was always very friendly. It's refreshing to have staff appreciate your business and make you feel comfortable. We kept commenting on how everyone on the staff must be partial owners b/c it seemed as though they all had a stake in our enjoyment. I want to make special note of Chris and Joseph. Their attention to service and detail was fantastic. My fiancée and I went to several other boutique hotels in Palm Springs to see if we made the right decision. After walking around the Viceroy and some of the other properties we couldn't help but notice the difference. Every other place tried way to hard. They were very uptight and pretentious. Certainly not the feeling we were looking for and received at the MC. If you're looking for a smaller, more intimate stay in Palm Springs, look no further than the Movie Colony. Thanks guys and we'll be back!!
