We could have stayed here forever! Everyone was so friendly and the room was perfectly clean. As this is an old house, one might expect some things to not be in order - but that was certainly not the case! Perfect rooms, bedding, cleanliness, landscaping and breakfast! All within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs (2 blocks). We had been...

Beautiful setting. Great Breakfast. Walking distance to museums, restaurants. Relaxing and quiet. Appetizers in the early evening thoughtfully prepared, and a wonderful opportunity to meet with other guests and share ideas for future walks and events.

We have found a new favorite get-away spot! My husband and I stayed at The Willows for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary and loved every minute. Everything from the luxury linens to the delicious breakfast is well thought out. The innkeepers do a wonderful job making you feel comfortable and relaxed...we never felt waited on, rather very well taken...

The Willows has beautiful grounds, spacious rooms, heated pool/spa, and excellent service. They have evening snacks and wine and a multi-course breakfast in the morning. I would recommend The Willows to anyone wanting a relaxing environment and great location.

Prepare to be transported to another world....another era. There can be no place as relaxing in all of Southern California. I felt like an incognito 1950s movie star here. All is old-school and understatedly beautiful. The staff is incredibly polite and accommodating. We arrived late after the Indian Wells tennis tournament, but were given access to the jacuzzi near the...

I cannot say enough about The Willows. The Inn is exceptionally charming and comfortable. It is a great place to relax and enjoy the views. The breakfasts were out of this world and the dining setting is amazing. The Inn is nestled against the mountains and is right at the edge of town. The staff were all friendly and helpful....

Really loved this place! First visit and unfortunately they only had one night available. We were in the Einstein room. Great bed, croaking frogs, waterfall, and private balcony. Walking distance to town but super quiet and restful old and historic Inn. Delicious breakfast, all the staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely want to come back for a few more days...

The Willows is a historic house converted to an extremely pleasant eight bedroom inn. It's history is really interesting - Albert Einstein, Marion Davis, and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard stayed for extended periods of time. The history, however, wouldn't mean anything if the inn wasn't a wonderful place to stay, and it is. The bedrooms are comfortable, there are...

My husband and I spent two nights at the Willows and had a very enjoyable getaway. The rooms are nicely equipped with everything you would expect to find, the pool is perfect for catching some sun or taking a quick dip, and the views around the property are gorgeous! The location is great - you are tucked away enough to...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A vacation at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn feels like a visit to a friend's country estate; or rather, an acquaintance who has welcomed some very famous friends into their home over the years. Nestled among stunning mountain vistas, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn has been a Hollywood favorite for nearly a century. Today, this Mediterranean villa has been meticulously restored to its original elegance of the 1930s. Mahogany-beamed ceilings and natural stone fireplaces are accented by modern amenities such as complimentary high-speed wireless,in-room DVD players and iPod docking stations. A three-course gourmet breakfast next to the waterfall and nightly wine and hors d'oevres are included in the rate, making for an exceptional value. Tour the extensive gardens or relax by the pool. From the luxurious comforters and Egyptian cotton towels, no detail has been overlooked in this secluded desert oasis. ... more   less
