The Movie Colony Hotel

Can't say enough great things about this hotel in Palm Springs.  And I haven't been pay to, either.  Originally designed by Albert Frey in the 1930's and 1940's, this boutique hotel has been completely revamped.  Its appeared in countless design magazines.

Everything has been taken care of, down to the tiniest detail.  Amazing linens on the beds, plush towels, free bikes (with wicker baskets) to ride into town, floaties in the pool.  Eames rockers and Nelson Marshmallow sofas to relax on.

Happy Hour starts at 4:00ish and ends whenever.  A choice of wine, and also a delicious fruity martini concoction, as well.  We were the only ones staying there, at one stage, and the owners served us our Happy Hour, as we lounged by the pool.  One tray, two glasses, a bottle of red, bottle of wine and peanuts.

Its said that Jim Morrison stayed here and jumped off the 2nd story townhouse balcony, into the pool.  (I can believe that).

Its situated about 5 minutes by bike, from the centre of Palm Springs.  So convenience.  If you're traveling there, anytime soon, stay here.  You won't be sorry.
