Just 90 miles from Hollywood is located Colony Palms Hotel. Colony Palms is a hideout with a sordid past: Purple Gang mobster Al Wertheimer built the place in the 1930s, and it started out as a speakeasy, brothel and gambling house. Now an upscale boutique, it makes for good vacation living. Having recently re-opened after an extensive renovation, The Colony Palms Hotel, has regained its swagger as a stunning four-star boutique. The hotel was designed by Los Angeles based Martyn Lawrence-Bullard. There are offered 56 guest rooms & suites.
As with any Palm Springs property, the pool is the focal point of the hotel both at night and during the day. In the lobby, Moroccan-inspired design flourishes like brightly colored fringed pillows and settees dominate the visual scene. Guestrooms are ideally designed for relief from the desert heat, with thick curtains that keep out the light. Large textile headboards over the king beds and soft Italian linens practically beg guests to indulge in afternoon naps. The Moroccan Cocktails don’t hurt, either. More info from Colonypalmshotel.
