Gorgeously manicured but not overly fussy. Seclusion, naturally. That’s our boutique desert hideaway tucked into the design scene of old downtown. At the iconic Avalon Hotel & Bungalows Palm Springs, the eclectic range of 70 Spanish-style lodgings, including romantic studios and 13 private villas follow in storied footsteps with deep residential comforts and 3 pools. Lounge all afternoon in a cabana, unwind at the spa, dine with us poolside, or make it an evening at the legendary Melvyn’s Restaurant & Casablanca Lounge, just steps away at our sister property Ingleside Estate. It’s magical at all hours… All you have to do is stay.
It’s no secret why Avalon’s historic Spanish-kissed studios, suites and bungalows have been a Hollywood playground since the 1930s. Surrounded by fragrant citrus, lush gardens and secluded pools, our lodgings channel an ineffable romance with all their sun terraces and fireplaces and plush beds alike. (We’re also attuned to the reality that you may never want to leave.)
Whatever your mood, we’ve got a pool to match it — swim in one of three refreshing pools at Avalon, peppered with relaxation-ready cabanas and loungers. For a new view, walk less than 100 steps to our sister property for a dip in Ingleside’s expansive pool, complete with comfy hammocks, a warming fire pit, and breathtaking views of the San Jacinto mountains.

Our lovely getaway was originally known as the Estrella Inn (“star” in Spanish). Fittingly, Estrella Spa is the star that illuminates Avalon from the inside out: our caring core of health and wellness experience.
