I've enjoyed Palm Springs more and more over the past few years. All of the upscale hotels seem to have something to offer, but no hotels have it all - beautiful grounds, well trained articulate staff, excellent food and a great energy. I know it's asking a lot, but coming from LA where you can have anything you want, my wife and I are looking to be blown away.
The Colony Palms exceeded all expectations. The grounds are so misleading from the street - it's truly a hotel you don't need to leave once you arrive. You HAVE to try the restaurant but make reservations first! My only complaint was that locals swarm the place and we were not able to get "prefered" seating as a hotel guest but that only meant we had to wait an extra 20 minutes, a small price to pay for the quality and presentation of the food.
Polite valet, attentive desk staff and the cleanest rooms I've ever stayed in (and I'm a Four Season traveler.)
When you are in Palm Springs, spend the extra money on a one of their Casitas and enjoy the Hotel that offers it all.
