Villa Royale is just a few hundred yards off of South Palm Canyon (hwy 111) but when you walk in you enter another world. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the large hotels but it is so calming and comfortable. It was just what we were looking for. After we settled into our room (105 highly recommend) we headed out to the pool. Great pool area with a full indoor/outdoor bar that opens directly onto the pool area. The front desk staff, Jack and Jacob, could not have been nicer or more accomodating to our every need. One of the extras you can order is to have rose pedals scattered over the bed before check in. But I talked with Jack and he said he could make it happen while we were at dinner at Europa. When we came back to our room he had the bed folded down, chocolates, and rose pedals scattered. Great service. We stayed there and never left the property. A great place to relax and unwind. We had dinner both nights at the Europa restaurant. It is expensive, but they offer a prix fixed three course dinner. The wait staff was wonderful. I've had better food but it was very very good. Well worth a visit to Europa. The ambience is dynamite. The inn does attract an older group and I wouldn't recommend it for children. Teenages would not care for it. If you're looking for a quiet, charming, European feel, boutique hotel; this place is for you.

Room Tip: Room 105 is poolside and is a very popular room. Specifically request that room. Also, Room 122 is...

This beautiful boutique hotel was recommended by a friend. The location is perfect,while at the foot of the mountains,it is only few minutes from Downtown shopping,museum...We enjoyed the heated pools, the outdoor seating and the cozy fire places every where. We loved the unique romantic room decorations, enjoyed our room's private patio....ohh...Last but not least was the dinner in the elegant Europa restaurant. My Salmon was the best I have ever had! The
experience took us back to the charm of old Europe.

This was my first time in Palm Springs and my stay at the Villa Royale was wonderful! The rooms are uniquely decorated and very comfortable and cozy. The staff was friendly and accomodating. Two thumbs up for the food and the staff at Europa Restaurant, definitely outstanding! I will recommend Villa Royale and the Europa Restaurant to anyone one visiting Palm Springs.

What a wonderful retreat. Room 305 is heavenly. The food at Europa restaurant is fabulous. The staff is beyond friendly. From the moment we arrived everyone was a pleasure. Even the waiter at breakfast who was a "one man show" for the whole dining room, never made us wait, never let our cup of coffee run out and had a smile and a little chat with us the entire time. My only suggestion would be to spruce up their private patios a bit. The bathroom was a bit small however the hugh room, kitchen and fireplace was wonderful. This was a last minute reservation and I was not expecting anything special. I was pleasantly surprised. We will definitely stay at Villa Royale Inn again.

Tucked away in the desert is this wonderful boutique property known as the Villa Royale Inn. From the charming rooms, the trickling fountains and lush gardens - you feel as if you are in your own little paradise. Each room is attractively decorated with delightful antiques and no two rooms are alike! The bar and restaurant were constantly filled with laughter and the ting of glasses when I was there. The service throughout the property was top-notch. The owner has done a wonderful job bringing the property to life! I hated to leave and would love to visit again soon.

Room Tip: Rooms in the third courtyard are quieter and have a separate pool. All three courtyards are lovely...
