There’s stylish, and then there’s, well, v. stylish. And nobody does the second like V Palm Springs, complete with the cool mid-century vibe so sought after in this classic California resort destination. A fusion of on-trend and laid-back design characterizes the getaway, such as at ELIXIR Pool Bar & Grill, serving Tiki-style cocktails and Polynesian-inspired fare in a chic poolside setting. Cozy fire pits and plush loungers also frame the hotel’s sleek swimming hole, which is shaped like – of course – a giant V.
Rooms and suites are Instagram snapshots waiting to happen, with details like mirrored headboards, snake lamps, custom vanities and geometric artwork. There are also plenty of events and activities to take advantage of, like aqua yoga and meditation classes on weekends. But where V really shines is in its ability to get you out into the city. Hop on one of the hotel’s bicycles around town, or take the city’s complimentary shuttle to vintage-clothing shops, fabulous lounges and the weekly Villagefest block party, and put that V in vacation heaven.
Good to know
Please note that a resort fee of $29 per room, per night is payable directly to the hotel. The resort fee includes parking, Wi-Fi, welcome snacks, bicycle rental and fitness-center and pool access.
Each V Palm Springs room features unique mid-century and Instagram-friendly décor. Mirrored headboards, snake lamps, geometric patterns, gold accents, woven rugs – the fabulously fashion-forward details abound. Also enjoy exclusive boutique bath amenities, a 47-in. flat-screen TV and more.
Serving Asian-fusion and Polynesian fare beside the hotel’s swimming hole, ELIXIR Pool Bar & Grill has a hip ambience you can only find in Palm Springs. The central bar, lit with neon signs and a cozy fire pit, offers whimsical Tiki-style drinks and an extensive menu for breakfast, brunch and all-day treats. Mahi-mahi tacos, green-curry lobster rolls, and matchstick fries with malt vinegar aioli are just a few of the tasty choices to look forward to.
Palm Springs is beloved for many reasons, not least the desert playground’s ability to keep hot weather cool and keep the mid-century modern. (The California retreat became an iconic resort town in the 20th century and is still known, and loved, for its 1950s and ‘60s architecture.) When not sunning by the pool, you’ll enjoy exploring main-drag Palm Canyon Drive, searching for treasure among the heaps of high-end vintage and consignment wares or attending VillageFest – a farmers market, flea market and art fair, all rolled into one – on Thursday evenings. We also recommend a ride on the aerial tramway and a hike around the scenic Indian Canyon trails.
How to Get There
Everytime I've come here, it has never disappoint, as far as service, environment, and stay. I've been here 4 times in the past 3 years. I still want to come back here. They play music during the daytime. If you come on the weekend, it does get a crowd but I prefer to go on weekdays with my family to enjoy the pool to ourselves. The food isn't bad but normally I just order out and bring it back to the room so we could relax and swim. The rooms are affordable and nice. They provide a fridge and I love that there is a swing in the balcony or you could have a private patio. We usually book the queen room suite with sofa bed. I would definitely recommend staying here. As far as service, everytime, I've asked for something, they have always been accommodating, we asked to switched rooms and they would even give us a tour, we asked for towels, blankets, no problem! I really do enjoy it here.
José at the bar completely made our visit! We stopped over for one night on our toad trip and not only was he as friendly and genuine as can be, he also recommends some great drinks and excellent food nearby as the bar was closing. Thank you, José. @V - he is an asset to your business! The hotel was just what we needed. Cheers from London!
Overpriced motel with no amenities or customer service waited an hour at the pool no towels delivered, after asking twice..dont know what the hype about this wasteland is smells like pot and regret. thank you for nothing
