Palm Springs, CA
A Modernist gem, designed by architect Albert Frey in 1935, the Movie Colony Hotel is a seamless blend of vintage Hollywood style, with a modern, South Beach vibe. Private, second-story terraces afford views of the sprawling San Jacinto Mountains, with glimpses of the busy Palm Springs skyline steps away. Stroll downtown to browse the shops and art galleries of the Design District, and return for an evening dip in the pool. Overlooking the Movie Colony of Old-Hollywood stars like Dinah Shore, the hotel's minimalist style merges man-made materials with the natural landscape, making it the embodiment of Desert Modernism.
