The hotel was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. Nice location very easy to get around just walking to the main street in town. The pool and restaurant were nice (except for the guys smoking cigars poolside!). The fitness center was a little dungeon-like with no windows, but I guess more people don't go to Palm Springs to workout. Aside from that it was a completely relaxing and enjoyable experience - we would stay there again!

Good location and nice rooms, some with fire place

Hotel has a nice pool,, chilling area. The only neg is that the hotel seems seriously understaff and rather clueless. I stayed 4 days and did not have many room charges. The receptionist (Jhon) did made a comment about my low charges in a rather, snotty, condescending tone. Dear you are nobody to judge the way i spend my money:)

Boutique Getaway

Colony Palms is our favorite place in Palm Springs. The perfect weekend getaway. Always relaxing to sit by the pool and sip cocktails. Typically, more of a tame adult crowd without kids running around.

heavenly

The room was just a box which was a little disappointing considering the cost. However, it's a beautiful place. We relaxed by the pool in comfy lounge chairs. The pool was full but quiet. This is a mature crowd. We were impressed that the pool and jacuzzi are open 24 hours but it's never noisy. Beautiful place. We really enjoyed our stay. If this is what it costs to stay in a beautiful place it's worth it.

weekend getaway

I stayed over the weekend and it was fantastic! Everything was just as pictured and even better in person. I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely stay here next time I'm in palm springs. I got the standard room and it had all the necessary amenities and was nicely decorated.

Oh the food.

The room was well worth the money, and the staff was great. The breakfast was the best. Egg white with mushrooms, spinach, and goat cheese, with avocado We will go back again.
