As owners of the newly renovated Palm Springs Hotel, Tom and Denise Adams clearly understand the strong interest in history and design with visitors and locals alike.

The 15 room, 1950s property is a striking mix of midcentury modern meets industrial chic with a bit of European flair. Think clean lines, ceramic tiles, and adorable Parisian inspired cafe tables.


Oversized bathrooms at The Palm Springs Hotel.

ESSENTIAL EXTRA: Each room offers an oversized Spa experience bathroom complete with marble showers. With an attention to small details, the bathrooms feature a small sink designed for washing ones hands while a larger wet bar style sink is located in the room.


Upon entering the main doors to the hotel, I noticed the tranquil pool and bar, where guests can purchase small bottles of liquor and wine to mix up pool perfect cocktails themselves. Pops of orange dot the space from barstools to umbrellas.

Once outside, you’ll notice a plexiglass wall instead of a traditional gate around the pool.

“Originally when we found out we had to have a gate around the pool we were devastated, but now we love the look of this invisible wall,” says Denise. “It actually keeps the pool space a bit more intimate.”

Each of the 15 guest rooms offers comfortable and approachable elegance with furnishings from Mod Shop in Palm Springs.

ESSENTIAL EXTRA: Denise specifically selected an oversized headboard to create a comfortable yet dramatic ambiance in the rooms. The tufted headboards follow a unique color pallet of either Navy Blue, Orange, or Deep Purple.


Thoughtful details include a wet bar in each room (a throwback to Tom’s parents who used to have “Cocktail Hour” with friends), connecting room options for groups of friends or families with young children, and Keurig coffee makers in each room.


A 48-inch Apple TV allows guests to access their playlists.

ESSENTIAL EXTRA: Each room comes with a 48-inch Apple TV and a 55-inch in the suite, which allows guests to sign in to their Apple accounts to access playlists or log in to Netflix to binge watch a favorite show).
