The 7 Best Hotels in Palm Springs of 2024

Sparrows Lodge

Palm Springs is famous for its late-night pool parties, yet some visit the desert to rest. Sparrows Lodge, an adults-only retreat with just hummingbirds for company, is the best place to unplug. Movie stars of the past may have come here to escape the spotlight, as they did.

L’Horizon Resort And Spa, Hermann Bungalows

Hermann made one of Palm Springs' most delightfully low-key addresses with pine ceilings and Frette linens. However, Hermann improved by adding the Hermann Bungalows on an adjacent property to L'Horizon.

Korakia Pensione

Carrol Naish, the artist's neighbor, possessed a 1930s Mediterranean villa with a rare 1918 California adobe cottage, private courtyard, and citrus grove across the street. Korakia Pensione has 28 beautifully refurbished guest rooms with wood-burning stoves

Holiday House

The Donald Sultan “Big Red Poppies” garden sculpture added color to interior designer Mark D. Sikes' blue and white redesign. The outstanding John Baldessari, Alex Katz, and Herb Ritts collection in the cobalt blue lobby will delight art lovers.

Parker Palm Springs

The first 5-star Palm Springs hotel, Le Parker Meridien, or The Parker Palm Springs, opened in 2004 after hotelier Jack Parker bought it in 2003. Jonathan Adler, a young designer, designed the project with Valley of the Dolls trippiness and rebuilt it in 2017.

Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs

The Rowan is a modern hotel tower with a rooftop pool, unlike Palm Springs hotels, which have a central pool with one or two floors of rooms around it. All new pool furniture was in subtle desert colors in 2023. Mid-mod furniture, natural materials, and purposeful kitsch

Ace Hotel And Swim Club

Most people remember the Ace as the hotel that started Palm Springs' classic hotel restoration trend. The fun, young, and fabulous hotel was built on the foundation of a 1965 Westward Ho Hotel, and much of it is a fresh rethink—or reuse, like in the restaurant's uncovered terrazzo floors.
