Palm Springs, California

Avalon Hotel Palm Springs

Mid-century Glamour

What it is

A 67-room, red-terra-cotta roofed retreat with 13 villas, three cabana-lined pools and a garden-side spa.

What it isn't

Poorly serviced. Waitstaff will hand you coconut water cocktails poolside; you can book a private training sesh at the gym; and guided morning meditations and sunrise yoga is gratis.

What we think

Tucked on nearly five acres of manicured gardens, where the gauzy fragrance of jasmine and citrus wafts through the air, this is the type of place Palm Springs dreams are made of. Guest rooms feel worthy of silver screen sirens in their palette of serene greys, blacks and whites; book a 350-square-foot Premium Courtyard Studio for a flickering gas fireplace and marble tiled bath, plus Spanish tile floors for cool comfort underfoot that’s especially lovely in the desert. Or splurge on a One Bedroom Bungalow—equipped with a full kitchen and private patio that’s more than Instagram-ready. Don’t miss the weekend brunch at Chi Chi, the hotel’s throwback restaurant, where the menu includes an heirloom tomato BLT and—this place being a hideout for Lalaland starlets—turmeric lattes and La Colombe cold brew coffee.

You're here because

You have to work out in this town—every single local looks like they’re fresh from the gym—and the 24/7 gym on the premises is equipped with treadmills, a steam room, ellipticals and a sauna.

The Moment

After a night out, you’re ecstatic to have a night in at Chi Chi, where the cocktails are the best you’ve had in SoCal. Given the temperature, you can’t help but order a Spicy Cactus, with pisco, agave, lime, cucumber and serrano peppers. So hot, in more ways than one.

Restaurants & Bars

Chi Chi Restaurant - fresh, balanced California menu


In Palm Spring’ buzzing downtown, just a few blocks walk from Peninsula Pastries, where a couple of French expats whip up the best croissants and baguettes you’ll ever have on this side of the pond, thanks to imported French butter and flour.
