Having read many of the reviews on Trip Advisor about The Willows I can only but echo the superlatives expressed.
My wife and I spent four nights there starting February 8,2013. We had been looking for somewhere convenient to LA ,a place to relax and also explore and so settled on Palm Springs.After reviewing the many options,which appeared to largely cater to golfers, we decided on The Willows.We absolutely loved the experience which was much more akin to staying in a (wealthy) friends home than a small hotel.We stayed in the Loft room which was spacious,airy,bright and had wonderful views.Brushing your teeth while watching hummingbirds hover at the waterfall on the property was quite a treat! As noted by others the only downside in this room was the lack of a fixed shower head,but this was a minor inconvenience.
As noted by other reviewers we found the staff exceptional.Friendly,knowledgeable and gracious.We loved the evening "happy hour" with the choice of two red and two white wines accompanied by delicious hors d'ouevres.And then there were the breakfasts! Served adjacent to the waterfall,silver service,three course,different everyday.Delightfully delicious.
The hotel is very well situated being adjacent to the excellent Modern Art Museum and only a short walk to the centre of town yet very quiet.
