We often take family trips to Palm Springs and usually go where the deals are. Travelzoo was offering deeply discounted 1-bedroom bungalows at The Avalon (formerly The Viceroy) so we gave it a try. On the plus side, it's a gorgeous and tranquil property with chic design details. The restaurant (Chi Chi) is creative and delicious for both dinner and...

We stayed here for just a night. The property overall was lovely with gorgeous grounds, lovely gardens/pools, with the backdrop of the mountains. Very convenient location to the main area of Palm Springs. Service was very friendly and genuine with a special call out to the accommodating valet/bellman. They unfortunately had no more room in the bungalows, so we were...

LOVE everything about this place. Estrella Spa is awesome. The valet, front desk, restaurant/bar wait staff etc are all top notch as well! The bungalows are old school retro charment, but fairly well appointed including gas fireplace and semi-stocked kitchen (no coffee makers). Enjoy every moment...I know we did!

Having visited Palm Springs so many times with endless eatery options, I appreciate the Avalon poolside area as a nice disconnect from the usual spots. Coincidentally, another guest was also having lunch with his Jack Russel named Pee-Wee. After exchanging some dog friendly topics, I learned that he was a local resident and frequently had lunch at the Avalon. In...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A jewel box nestled in the heart of downtown Palm Springs, the historic Avalon Hotel and Bungalows Palm Springs rests at the foot of the rugged San Jacinto Mountains on four acres of fragrant, beautifully manicured gardens. Its Spanish architecture punctuated by a series of secluded, private bungalows, calls forth the iconic, storied Golden Age of Palm Springs, exuberantly updated with Hollywood Regency interiors by renowned designer Kelly Wearstler. At Avalon every experience has been hand-curated by a team of collaborators and bona fide hotel aficionados. You might say it's a calling. A penchant for wanderlust. A mind for singular retreats and unrepeatable vibes. We hold an affinity for one-offs, anomalies and the irrefutable allure of a personal touch. Our trademarks are small batched. Think of us as your own private hideaway. All you have to do is stay. ... more   less

“Can only speak to the bungalows as I have never stayed in the standard rooms. Love the Regency pool bungalows though the other bungalows have larger back yard with fun 'sunning' bed which lovely plus your space is quieter/more removed from the main restaurant/pool/jacuzzi scene. Also might wanna bring your own french press (despite having a full/old school kitchen which we loved there are no coffee makers) and/or acrylic wine glasses if you want more than a plastic cup poolside. :) Biggest bonus -- Love love love that pups are welcome. :) ”
