This former Travelodge boasts updated mid-century modern digs for a new generation of desert travelers.
For decades, hipsters and Hollywood bigwigs have been escaping to Palm Springs for glamorous getaways filled with sun, shopping, rest and recreation. They also come for the retro atmosphere, which this hotel has in abundance. Set against beautiful mountain scenery, V Hotel manages to feel at once fresh and familiar — the latter, perhaps, because it was once a Travelodge, and what's more familiar than that!
Décor within the 140 well-appointed guest rooms revolves around details like custom furniture, Western-style accessories and private balconies that let visitors drink in the desert air. The colors are somber with soothing, earthy blue accents, and amenities include 47-inch flat-screen TVs and mini-fridges. Aqua yoga classes are offered at the distinctive V-shaped pool, and the swanky ELIXIR Pool Bar features al fresco dining and a selection of retro handcrafted cocktails. A free weekend shuttle zips guests into downtown Palm Springs, or if the weather’s nice — and it nearly always is — you can borrow a bike and pedal around town.
