Seemingly carved into the desert stone with all the trappings of a graceful Spanish villa, The Willows Historic Palm Springs Inn is the former home of actress Marion Davies, better known for her dalliances with William Randolph Hearst. Guests enter the 1920s-era retreat through a dramatic cabana-draped terrace located at the top of a curvaceous stairway. At the top is a lovely parlor with beamed ceiling, massive fireplace and baby grand piano. With just eight impeccable rooms and space allotted for just a handful of people, a stay at The Willows is likened to you being a weekend guest at the home of a very privileged friend. Each and every chamber offers its own kind of wonderful, whether it's a hand-carved mahogany ceiling or a delightful claw-foot tub set against vintage tile.
