Hotels in Palm Springs

Palm Springs Guide

In the 20th century, Palm Springs became a favorite retreat of Hollywood royalty and wealthy vacationers fleeing the harsh winters back east. They were attracted not only to the desert town’s sunny weather but also to its relative seclusion (it lies in the Coachella Valley about a hundred miles from Los Angeles). By the middle of the century, Palm Springs was a thriving resort community known for its prime golfing, hiking, and shopping opportunities, as well as a distinctive architectural style known as “desert modernism” (think Mad Men with palm trees). The town retains the same stylishly retro look to this day, and there is as much natural beauty and as many ways to kick back as ever.

Art and Architecture

  • Palm Springs Art Museum: A small but expertly curated collection includes works by Pablo Picasso and Robert Rauschenberg, along with significant contemporary and Native American art.
  • Mid-century modern landmarks: To explore the area's famed architecture, grab a map at the visitors’ center, itself housed in an iconic building: the retro-futuristic Tramway Gas Station designed by Albert Frey.
  • Guided tours: Sign up for a group tour to benefit from the knowledge of docents who can take you to lesser-known gems and spill the dirt on the A-listers who’ve lived here.
  • Where to stay for a mid-century vibe: The Riviera Palm Springs hotel has a swanky, Rat Pack feel, from the neon sign out front to the tropical pool area out back.

The Great Outdoors

  • Palm Springs Aerial Tramway: Get a bird’s-eye view of the area in tramcars that rotate 360 degrees as they carry you to the top of Mount San Jacinto, located 8,516 feet above sea level.
  • Golfing: More than 100 golf courses, including the award-winning public Desert Dunes Golf Club and the posh Cimarron Golf Resort set against the San Jacinto Mountains
  • Hiking: Hit the trails in the nearby Agua Caliente Indian Canyons or head 40 miles northeast to the nearly 800,000-acre Joshua Tree National Park.
  • Where to stay to be near nature: The Agua Caliente Casino Resort, just outside of Palm Springs, is minutes from the Indian Canyons.

Old-School Glamour

  • The Movie Colony: This area of town had its heyday between the 1930s and 1960s, when stars like Dean Martin, Bob Hope, and Marilyn Monroe all had homes built here.
    • Palm Canyon Drive: Go shopping in the upscale furniture and clothing boutiques along Palm Spring’s main drag.
  • Where to stay for classic Palm Springs atmosphere: The Desert Hills Hotel, built in 1957, can be found right downtown. All hotel rooms are poolside.

Front desk open 24hrs. No children. The Palm Springs Rendezvous Bed and Breakfast experience starts as you walk through our frosted glass doors and into our entryway where you will hear nostalgic 50s music wafting through the air. You then pass into our gorgeous courtyard with pristine pool, hot tub, and blue Astroturf sun deck at our Palm Springs Inn. You may be tempted to settle yourself under one of our terra cotta umbrellas and wrap yourself in a plush towel and bake in the beautiful desert sun. Each room at Palm Springs Band B has its own special theme. We even have DVDs in each room to rekindle all those great memories. Every room is adjacent to the pool, making it easy to take a quick dip. All our rooms are non smoking and have a 2 person max. occupancy. Come experience our world class gourmet breakfast. Start out with gourmet coffees, tea, and juice, or one of Jakes specialty smoothies. Enjoy a crisp and refreshing granola fruit salad before diving into one or our fabulous main courses, stuffed French toast with chicken apple sausage, or a savory chile egg puff and fresh cranberry scone. Once you finish your healthy breakfast, indulge in a couples massage in our private massage studio, then lay by the pool and soak up that great desert sunshine. If you are looking for more adventure, take a bike ride into town on our bright white cruiser bikes and enjoy some of the boutique shopping experience. Come out and join us for a blue raspberry martini and freshly prepared appetizers served from our custom built vinyl bar. Enjoy the sensational sunset as the sun dips below the mountains. In the cooler season, get to know the other guests around our fire pit in the courtyard or the fireplace in the lounge. Here at Rendezvous, we go the extra mile to make sure your vacation is as perfect as possible.
