Top 10 Boutique Hotels in Palm Springs
Eight intimate villas hidden away for a quiet escape.
There's nothing big and splashy about this inn hidden away in a residential neighborhood; in fact, you might easily drive right past it without ever noticing it. But if you manage to find your way inside, you'll discover intimate courtyards and seven snug villas built in the early 1920s --- really one-bedroom suites with living rooms and well-equipped kitchens. Most units have private outdoor Jacuzzis, stone or marble floors, double-sided fireplaces, custom-made bed frames and an aesthetic that's Spanish/Mediterranean by way of the California Craftsman style. Guests can go for a swim, get an in-room massage or chill by the fire pit or in the meditation garden. Breakfast is elaborate, with egg dishes, fruit platters, yogurt and more. Although Desi Arnaz Jr. took his first steps in Villa No. 4 when his mom and dad were vacationing here, these days the Andalusian is very much for low-key couples on an extended weekend stay.
