We stayed at the Colony Palms for one night. When we booked, we asked for a room with a fireplace, which we paid extra for—$354 per night including taxes. We got room #3. In the end, it wasn’t worth it because the fireplace let out a gaseous odor. Also our room was dark and did not have much of a view. A hotel on the upper floor may have been better. The hotel has a pretty layout with the rooms around a pool, which we could not enjoy the pool because it was too cold. At one end there is the restaurant with a nice bar. This place is classic Palm Springs. One of the best things about the hotel is the location, within easy walking distance to the main downtown area, which is a nice walk. We spent an afternoon at Kofi, a cool coffee shop just down the block. The staff at the Colony Palms were superb—very kind and gracious, especially at the front desk and during check in.
