The Willows is just 2 blocks from the heart of Palm Springs village but feels private, secluded, privileged. 8 rooms total, beautifully decorated with subtle, exquisite taste, with gorgeous antiques in every room. Bed and linens are luxury quality, bathrooms spacious and well-appointed. We stayed in the Loft which featured a claw foot tub with hand held shower (we would opt for one of the other rooms with both tub and shower next time). Breakfast is served in the indoor/outdoor dining room in front of a massive rock wall waterfall. Breakfast includes freshly baked muffins (creative recipes like corn-blueberry) followed by an interesting fruit dish (broiled grapefruit with honey, berries with vanilla yogurt and fresh mint)' and concluding with hearty entrees (portabella mushrooms stuffed with herbed eggs served with chicken sausage was exceptional). It is like having breakfast at the home of a dear friend who is a fabulous cook. Hors d'ouevres are served from 5:30 - 7 pm. Yum! We enjoyed dates stuffed with cream cheese and garnished with chopped nuts, stuffed mushrooms, asparagus wrapped with prosciutto and baked, avocado bruschetta with pesto, lime-cilantro marinated shrimp, and other tasty items served with a nice selection of wines. Grounds are manicured and colorful with meandering paths around the property. Many seating areas with beautiful views of the hillsides and waterfall. Pool area is luxurious and the staff regularly brings ice water and iced tea. Well worth the price; can't wait to return.
