Welcome

Where History , Luxury and Romance Linger....

Mere moments from the excitement of downtown Palm Springs yet worlds away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life, maybe found one of the California desert's most unique hidden treasures- The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn. Originally, a millionaire's private luxury hideaway, The Willows is a dream of peace and serenity brought to life by skilled craftsmen who nearly a century ago magically transformed a rugged and barren hillside in Palm Springs into a veritable oasis of rare beauty and ineffable charms.

For decades this secluded paradise delighted some of the world's most famous figures who found healing repose within its sheltering embrace; lingering amongst its lush terraced gardens and gazing with wonder at the breathtaking panoramas stretching out before them.

Today, The Willows has been reborn as a small luxury hotel and the same enchantments that beguiled the likes of Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, Joseph P. Kennedy, Marion Davies, Shirley Temple and Dr. Albert Einstein may be yours to enjoy as well. You simply have to call or make a reservation online. Tranquility awaits at The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn.

The Willows consists of two stunning Italianate-style mansions, The  Mead and The Bishop Houses. Designed by Los Angeles architect William Dodd for best friends, William Mead and Roland Bishop, the homes are fraternal twins. Accordingly, the Mead and Bishop houses are architecturally significant and are richly appointed with fine details which conjure up a more gracious time.

A stay at The Willows is like a visit to a wealthy friend's country estate.
