Palm Springs’ Rendezvous B&B: 50's icons in every room

See also

A stay at Palm Springs’ Rendezvous is packed with mid-Century flavor. All rooms are themed after 1950s icons: from the Stagecoach with its masculine John Wayne cowboy feel; the TV Show room done in gun metal grey and yellow accents with photos from I Love Lucy and others; to the Rebel without a Cause room where James Dean rules as the star.

More Photos

Marilyn Monroe once stayed in the Pretty in Pink room, which includes an Andy Warhol print of the star.

Rendezvous’ ten rooms all open onto the courtyard with its vinyl bar, fire pit and Jacuzzi. Most rooms have two-person whirlpool tubs. The honeymoon suite is framed by photos of Clark Gable and Marilyn Monroe to either side of the king size bed. The two-room suite also features a private bar, mid-century furnishings, and entertainment area.

Personal touches found throughout the boutique property

The hotel, about a 15-minute walk from Palm Springs central district, offers numerous personal touches, making any stay truly feel like you are home away from home.

Home-baked treats are placed in rooms each afternoon by staff, three course gourmet breakfasts start with a healthy shake and such dishes as stuffed French toast with chicken apple sausage. Cocktail hour features such concoctions as blue raspberry martinis, along with appetizers.

There is an on-site massage studio, and the hotel accommodates groups and special occasions. White cruiser bike are also available, perfect for the short trek into town.

Recommended restaurants nearby

Nearby restaurants worth the visit include LuLu, California Bistro, Matchbox, Trio, Jake’s and Cheeky’s for breakfast and lunch.

For a grander experience, try Roy’s, a short drive away in Rancho Mirage. Roy Yamaguchi launched Roy’s Hawaiian fusion cuisine in 1968, leading to the current 21 locations worldwide. Recommended: the Hawaiian style Ahi Poké, Lobster California Roll, and Chef Kevin Land’s signature dish, the aptly named Misoyaki Butterfish – Alaskan Black Cod, baby bok choy and furikake rice.
