Certificate of Excellence
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.

It’s a old apartment building that was completely renovated. The room still resonates 60’s era apartment building. It’s nice and clean but amazingly overpriced. It’s not like a big hotel, but it’s not charming in any way.

This is the only place I've ever stayed in Palm Springs that I would never return to and their quality of service is shocking for how much it costs to stay there. The website boasts of the hotel's attention to design and updated rooms- our room looked nothing like what is

high prices for low quality. very disappointing. We received poor service from staff that certainly didn't seem interested or concerned with our concerns. We were told our room was being cleaned and we'd receive a text when it was ready. We never received a text and went back

Dear Excursion46907562314, Thank you for sharing your constructive remarks. Please accept our sincerest apologies for the delay in the preparation of your room accommodations, and as well for any miscommunication. We have followed up internally. Check in time is guaranteed by 4pm, however we do make every effort to accommodate early arrivals whenever possible. We are pleased to know you enjoyed our over four acres of manicured grounds, and that Nubia, in our Estrella Spa provided knowledgeable, professional and friendly service. Nubia is passionate about taking wonderful care of her guests. We wish you safe and happy travels.

It was a wonderful trip for myself and my kids. They fully enjoyed the kids only pool. The food was delicious and healthy. My son especially loved the coconut. It is super close to downtown so you can walk everywhere which was a huge plus.

DearMaryfg45, Thank you for your wonderful 5 star review! We are so pleased you had such an enjoyable stay with your children! Having a dedicated pool for children adds to their enjoyment. Our coconuts are very popular! Glad your son enjoyed. Indeed, our over four acres of manicured grounds in the heart of downtown Palm Springs is ideal. After strolling the downtown area, our guests may easily return to our oasis! We thank you for staying with us, and we do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you and your family back very soon!
