Originally built in the 1950s, Alcazar was reborn in 2011 after undergoing a thoughtful face-lift that upholds the property’s Spanish Colonial soul while updating its amenities for discerning sun worshipers. Owner-slash-designer Carol Blum channeled poolhouse-casual, melding it with classic Spanish syle inside and out. Whitewashed and clay-roofed haciendas bursting with calliandra vines and bright pink bougainvillea are the perfect complement to the desert’s aqua blue sky and sand-colored peaks — a scene best enjoyed at dusk in the warmth of the outdoor fire.
Bed & Bath
Minimalist rooms — some with petite patios — cradle guests in simple sophistication, with black and white geometric print pillows, silver-toned vintage palm tree lamps and bright, original Kelly Tunstall art for pop against the gallery-white canvas. The charm of this 1950s hacienda-style hotel is the uniqueness of every room — some bathrooms are too small for more than one, others are big enough for a party.
Surrounded by restaurants, Alcazar Palm Springs is a haven for foodies conceived by owners Tara Lazar and Marco Rossetti, the savvy restaurateurs behind Palm Springs dining institutions Cheeky’s, Birba and Jiao — each features a different dining concept but they all have a sourced-within-100-miles menu. Hit Cheeky’s in the morning to brunch on huevos rancheros, melt-in-your mouth buttermilk waffles or a bacon flight; in the afternoon sample Jiao’s Asian street food–inspired fare, and at night dine alfresco on handmade pizzas and cups of vino at Birba.
How to Get There
Great little place, hidden and very nice. Stephanie was an amazing help and a great asset to that hotel! She was very informative and helpful from the beginning! We would for sure stay here again if we ever come back.
From check-in to farewell, all was as it should be. Each staff member was friendly, smiling, and outgoing. Immaculate grounds, beautiful landscaping, and architecture suited to the surroundings. Our room was comfortable, well-appointed. Watching the sun rise on San Jacinto from the chairs just outside our room was the perfect way to start each day. My wife and I were in town for a wedding, and the bride suggested we stay at Alcazar (a great idea!) We will be back.
Stayed at Alcazar for a week attending conference at Convention Center. Room was great, slept really well. Breakfast pastries were delicious. Pool was perfect temperature and surrounding garden was tranquil. Adjacent and nearby restaurants were tasty and boisterous. Easy walk to convention center and all things Palm Springs. Wish I was still there!
