Rendezvous Hotel, Palm Springs

The retro Rendezvous Hotel perfectly suits its hip desert location in Palm Springs. This 1950s style hotel only has 10 rooms, each decorated around an appropriate Californian theme. The rooms surround a central pool and Jacuzzi, which is used every evening for complimentary cocktails. There is also a bar and firepit should you wish to spend an evening outdoors by the pool.

The area of Palm Springs is known for its celebrity inhabitants and it is no secret that Marilyn Monroe used to stay at the Rendezvous Hotel. Her preferred room is now named ‘Pretty in Pink’ after her, and is designed with the blonde bombshell in mind.

I was in Route 66 bedroom, an homage to the famous highway with vintage automobile memorabilia on the walls. Quirky and yet luxurious the characterful rooms are thoughtful and very comfortable. The bed was dressed with some of the softest sheets I have ever felt, the bathroom featured a large Jacuzzi style bath, and high quality Bee Kind toiletries. Each day freshly baked treats are left on the bedside table, and the fridge is stocked full of unlimited complimentary soft drinks.

Three course set breakfast is served every morning in the small dining room. The friendly chefs serve a range of treats from strawberry smoothies, freshly made pancakes and blueberry coulis, and yoghurt parfait with granola and fruit.

When you want to venture out into the desert Rendezvous have bikes (free to rent) and the friendly management team are keen to offer city suggestions for tours and restaurants to try.

Fun and fabulous, Rendezvous Hotel is the perfect place to stay to get you in the mood for a Palm Springs adventure.
