A quiet desert resort retreat far away from the everyday and just steps away from the historic village of Palm Springs, California. Built in the 1920's in the Spanish style, the 30 room, 2 acre former estate offers luxury lodging and suite accommodations that recall the romance and glamour of the golden age of Hollywood. Unwind by the pool, enjoy the finest dining at world famous Melvyn's restaurant and rest in timeless luxury.

Suitable for the executive retreat, romantic escape or intimate wedding, this legendary Palm Springs boutique hotel is a place to relax, refresh and re-energize. Famous as a fabulous hideaway for the celebrities of show business, finance and politics, this landmark inn would be honored to add your name to it's guestbook.

Dining

Melvyn's Restaurant
Melvyn's Restaurant, located right on the premises of the legendary Ingleside Inn, is elegantly upbeat with a fully restored 1895 carved oak and mahogany bar. With its numerous antiques, waiters in linen jackets and photographs from long ago, dining at Melvyn's is truly a unique experience. Restaurant writers have praised the food as "beyond comparison" and you owe it to yourself to sample delicacies such as Veal Ingleside and more, including the finest wines from Melvyn's two world-class wine cellars. Another of the most enjoyable aspects of Melvyn's is simply people watching, to see just which famous celebrities may show up. And in the lounge, enjoy dancing and entertainment nightly!

Meeting facilities

Meeting Info
The Ingleside Inn's specialty can be said to feature the successful conducting of executive groups which have made the Ingleside Inn their habitual meeting place when in Palm Springs. The Inn has played host to such top level management groups as Pitney Bowes, Hormel, CBS, Warner Records, the Richard King Mellon Foundation Trustees, Sony and Colgate Palmolive, just to name a few. These groups have chosen the Inn for their high level conferences, business retreats and meetings for the unobtrusive efficiency of the staff, and the comfortable furnishings in the charming rooms.Instead of being "lost in the shuffle" of a large hotel where other and larger groups predominate, the Inn offers complete personal service from the group's arrival to the day of departure. All guests are pre-registered, keys and information packages are in all the rooms; the Concierge is equipped with each member's name and room number. In the shortest time, and without any inconvenience whatsoever, the guests

A hidden gem!

If you want the old school Hollywood experience in Palm Springs - come to the Ingleside Inn. Stayed in one of the adorable bungalows. The restaurant, Melvyns, was on the premises and full of Hollywood history. You must have a drink at the bar to experience this wonderful place.

Charming and delightful

I truly recommend this place if you're looking for a classy and charming old Hollywood desert retreat. Amazing staff, they make you feel home. The pool side is pleasant you can order breakfast and lunch there which is very convenient. The Melvins restaurant is cosy and elegant, I heard Sinatra had his rehearsal dinner there. I love the piano bar and the singer. It's just delightful and pleasant to hear all these beautiful songs from the golden age. I'm going back there soon. Can't wait!

Our Great Stay

This was a beautiful stay. It had the old time ambiance and modern amenities. The room was beautiful and clean and we enjoyed a drink at the bar and a wonderful birthday dinner in the evening. The staff EVERYWHERE on the premises were fantastic.....accommodating, polite, efficient and friendly. We would definitely stay here again! It brought us back to an era gone by. A true desert oasis. Thank you so much for our delightful stay! Lorraine Poitrinal

Home away from home

This is a cute hotel and the staff is more than eager to help you. Upon arrival we were greeted with a fruit platter and drinks. Very nice.

Wonderful!

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel! I really appreciated the welcome snacks in the room, such a nice touch that you don't get many places these days. It was a great location, we walked downtown for window shopping, dinner and ice cream in the evening. It is an old hotel, so you should know that going in, it's not a fancy modern hotel. But it is a completely adorable, clean, lovely hotel with incredible landscaping, a nice pool area, and a great location!

Palm Springs Perfection

The Ingleside Inn was the perfect, delightful, lovely, non-"cookie cutter" place to stay in a Palm Springs! The grounds are lush and beautiful and filled with sumptuous flowers and plantings. The mountainous view from our front door was the perfect antidote to our flat Florida landscape. From the complimentary welcome basket to our wonderful dinner and piano bar entertainment at Melvyn's (the Ingleside Inn restaurant), this is the perfect place in a perfect location if you are traveling to Palm Springs!

ANNIVERSARY

Great location in the heart of Palm Springs. The staff was always friendly and accomodating. The piano bar at night was just a blast. It was a Tuesday and it was rocking with song and dance. Walking to many nearby restaraunts was easy due to hotel location. Older hotel but very well maintained. A must try for someone looking for something different.

Old style and comfort with a unique flavor

Great historic property in downtown Palm Springs. The older rooms are beautiful but simple. It's a one block walk to the bustle of the city, but a world away from the bustle. Perfect for relaxing. Modernism week was fabulous.
