Suite of the Week: The Colony Palms’ Palme d’Or Residence
The Colony Palms is an oasis for movie stars, but you’ve got to earn the Palme d’Or.
Where is it? Located among the palm trees and golf courses of Palm Springs, the Colony Palms has been a getaway for Hollywood players since 1938.
The Hotel: The Moroccan style main building boasts 56 rooms and suites and was originally built with a speakeasy (and maybe brothel) in the basement. Today, the lodge is better known for its flamboyant interior design and the scene around the pool.
The Suite: In the northwest corner of the hotel’s main building lies the Palme d’Or Residence, the finest suite the hotel has to offer. The spacious duplex offers two private garden terraces, a fireplace, a steam shower with multiple shower heads, and a baby grand piano for those looking to entertain entertainers.
The Selling Point: The colossal outdoor jacuzzi is worth mention in casual conversation if you’re sitting poolside.
By The Numbers: 1,800 square feet; 2 bedrooms; 2.5 baths.
