Palm Springs’ legendary Movie Colony Hotel has reopened its doors following a four-year renovation project. Now the boutique hotel offers 16 stylish rooms, breath-taking views of the San Jacinto Mountains, vintage style interiors and ‘forward-thinking’ hospitality to help guests experience a true Palm Springs retreat.
In its 84-year history, big time Hollywood stars such as Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra and Jim Morrison have checked themselves in to sleep, relax and party within its grounds. The property was also the first hotel designed by master architect Albert Frey, making it a key attraction for architecture lovers and those wanting to delve in to Palm Springs’ rich modernist design history. Given the rich history and bulk of memories the Movie Colony Hotel has on guests, it has then since been renovated to enhance guest experience, while staying true to the hotel’s mid-century modern heritage and design. Albert Frey’s original ‘two-story townhouses’ have been recast as duplex suites featuring warm woods, vibrant colours, stylish modernist furnishings and private terraces.
With five room categories, all offering vintage charm seamlessly blended with contemporary appointments, Movie Colony Hotel offers a stylish boutique stay in a premier location. Guests wishing to soak up the Palm Springs sunshine and relaxing vibes will love the hotel’s beautiful pool area, which offers stunning views of the San Jacinto Mountains, and the central courtyard, where guests can enjoy a delicious complimentary continental breakfast each morning and drinks from the patio bar in the evening.
