This hotel feels like you’re in Alice and Wonderland, and you can tell that was their motivation. The interiors are very mid-century (as is most of Palm Springs) but the grounds are designed to be a bit of a maze, which means as you walk through an opening in the landscape, you uncover a fun bar or a pool. You just never know what’s behind the corner. Also the rooms aren’t numbered, but named. So when you get a room, it might be the “Margaret” room or the “Marilyn” for example.
See, mid-century. I wish I could have taken 100’s of photos of this place, but we felt like we were being watched and I didn’t want to draw attention to myself.
Walking the grounds we turn a corner and find this little oasis. Turn another corner and you’ll find a croquet court.
You never know what you’ll stumble upon. You’ll hear laughs and turn a corner and you’re at a bar.
If you visit Palm Springs and can’t afford to stay here, I highly recommend taking 15 minutes and walking the grounds. It’s a really impressive design and fun to explore.
