Palm Springs' Legendary Movie Colony Hotel

Re-opens Following Extensive Renovation


Boutique gem with starchitect pedigree returns to Indian Canyon's Hotel Row


Palm Springs, CA (March 2019) - Frank Sinatra partied here. Marilyn Monroe slept here. Jim Morrison jumped into the pool here - from his second-floor balcony! Now the legendary Movie Colony Hotel, which closed for renovations in 2015, is ready to write the latest chapter in its amazing history.


The 16-room property sits at the edge of Palm Springs' "Movie Colony" neighborhood, where Golden Age film stars like Cary Grant, Jack Benny, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh once owned vacation homes. The neighborhood's many high walls, thick hedges and a lack of sidewalks are reminders of how the stars valued their privacy.


But the Movie Colony Hotel is also famous as the first hotel designed by master architect Albert Frey in 1935. For the devotees of architecture who flock to Palm Springs each year for Modernism Week, it's an important touchstone.


In renovating the property, it was important to keep the mid-century modern integrity of the Movie Colony Hotel. "The whole premise of revitalizing this property," says Paul Darrall of LA-based Darrall Design Consultants, "was to make necessary improvements so the hotel re-establishes itself as one of the keynote properties in the Desert."


To that end, Frey's celebrated design has been reimagined and enhanced to improve the guest experience. The architect's original two-story "townhouses" have been recast into duplex suites. Warm woods, splashes of color and comfortable sofas and chairs have been added throughout the public and guest areas. The sun-drenched pool area, with a fantastic view of the breathtaking San Jacinto mountains, has been enlivened by bright textile accents in yellow and white.


With such a pedigree, the Movie Colony Hotel is expected to be a favorite rendezvous for guests visiting Palm Springs for seasonal events like the International Film Festival (PSIFF), Modernism Week, Coachella, Stagecoach, Robolights and more.


Best of all, the Movie Colony Hotel is in the middle of Palm Springs' vibrant Uptown Design District, where visitors can find some of the city's trendiest restaurants, art galleries, shops and more - all within walking distance.


The Movie Colony Hotel features:

  • 16 guest rooms with pillowtop beds, in-room safes, Keurig® coffee makers and elegant plantation shutters. Most rooms have patios or balconies.
  • A central courtyard, where a complimentary continental breakfast bar of bagels, fresh seasonal fruit, juices and French-pressed coffee is served daily, and a patio bar opens each evening.
  • Restaurant, bar and room services from its sister property, the Triada Palm Springs, which is next door.


The Movie Colony Hotel is located at 726 N. Indian Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262, and can be reached by calling 760-284-1600 or online, It is owned and operated by Pacifica Host Hotels. Read More

The original 1939 structure has been renovated to replicate a modern Mediterranean hacienda. The name TRIADA was derived from the word "Triad" meaning three interrelated parts and the design team explains their concept as "tri-techture" - giving each of the three wings a separate color scheme. 

The hotel features contemporary Spanish art, bright tiles and dark ceiling beams, two heated pools (fresh & salt), a whirlpool, cabanas and private sundecks with striking mountain views.   Stand out features also include an open-air library sitting room and a selection of casita style rooms with full and open kitchens and outdoor terraces, ideal for friends and traveling companions to gather.

Storybook, Destination Weddings in Demand at the Newly Reimagined 

La Valencia Hotel in La Jolla

Property Completes $12 Million Renovation, Features Legacy Bride Program

La Jolla, CA (2017) - Every bride dreams of having the Grace Kelly style storybook wedding. And after a $12 Million makeover, La Valencia Hotel  - a Mediterranean style pink landmark perched on a cliff over the Pacific since 1926 (also known as the "Pink Lady") - is an ideal choice for Hollywood style glamorous vow-taking and on-trend destination wedding soirees. 

Located in the heart of a jewel-like village 30 minutes North of San Diego, the 114-room hotel makes the most of the setting's oceanfront location, offering up picture perfect and very personalized moments for couples tying the knot.

The distinctive Mediterranean silhouette; intimate spaces and tropical sunsets; palm tree lined panoramic views, lush gardens accented with colorful Spanish tiles - all impart an atmosphere of storybook elegance.  With a cathedral-like lobby lounge complete with hand painted ceiling murals … wrought iron chandeliers … colorful mosaics … a picture window with full ocean views…a Romeo & Juliet mezzanine balcony ideal for a musical trio … a garden terrace suspended over the ocean…a centerpiece signature pool…a street facing European bistro … and a greatroom style fine dining restaurant -- La V is a dream-come-true wedding backdrop.  

Each couple who marries at the beloved "Pink Lady" is also invited into La Valencia's Legacy Bride Program which includes accommodations to celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary night.  The La V bride then becomes part of an elite sorority that can weave the magic of the hotel into her own anniversaries, family celebrations and hopefully - one day her daughter's wedding!

"We find that today's Millennial brides are looking to create events that are a reflection of who they are," explains Bobby Fader, La V's Wedding Specialist, "whether it's a menu featuring food from different cultures or having special events included in the weekend schedule. In fact, quite often a wedding is not just a one-day affair anymore.  Couples plan full weekend getaways for their guest -- from picnics at the beach to craft beer tours.  What's very popular too, for both gay and straight couples, are pre- wedding cocktail parties and after-wedding brunches for all of their guests."


Besides multi-day, destination-oriented weddings, Fader says he is also seeing the following wedding trends at La V:  Sparkler Exits; Pre-Wedding Cocktail Hours hosted by the couple; Cross-Cultural Events and even Doughnut Bars.



Whether brides are looking for an intimate affair for a few or a lavish wedding filled with world travelers,  La V, has an array of indoor and outdoor ceremony and reception options for your bridal shower, rehearsal dinner, private events or  seaside nuptials. 

Indoor and outdoor hotel ceremony and reception sites include:

  • The Garden - With Spanish tiles depicting the original "Pink Lady" on one wall and a sweeping view the Pacific on the other, this open-air terraced overlook is unforgettable as a ceremony or reception location. 


  • Verandah Ballroom & Terrace - Potted palms, a black and white marble foyer, picture windows, an open air entry and tufted ceilings with crystal chandeliers and an ocean-view terrace create an elegant wedding ballroom.   At more than 3,000 square feet, the Verandah Room and Terrace offers both indoor and outdoor space, amazing ocean views and can accommodate groups from 20 to 150.


  • THE MED Patio - Surrounded by beds of bright blooming flowers, the Mediterranean Patio creates an ideal al fresco ambience for a wedding reception under the stars. This room can accommodate a cocktail reception of up to 120 or up to 50 for dinner and dancing.


  • The Galeria - For a smaller, more intimate reception, the Galeria's gorgeous open arched windows; classic bar and breathtaking view of the La Jolla Coastline from its mini Romeo & Juliet balconies makes this a very special space.



With a setting like this, expectations are high for culinary offerings and La V rises to the occasion.  An extensive catering menu ranges from hand crafted cocktails to housemade, butler passed hors d'oeuvres as well as multi-course dinners that can be paired with wines from famed flights stored in La V's world class wine cellar.  



La V knows that the ultimate in sophistication is keeping the process clear and simple. From photographers to florists, to the ultimate party planner, La V has a trusted cadre of wedding specialists on hand to create highly personalized events.   Wedding themes have incorporated traditions from India, Persia, Japan and Israel and Fader says that LGBT weddings are thriving at the hotel as well.


"What's also so wonderful about La V for nuptials," Fader continues, "is that everyone can feel like the hotel was designed especially to meet their needs.  The beauty of the location is that there are so many different backdrops; so many different ways to tell a story.  Couples can capture photographic memories on staircases, in front of gorgeous tile work, and of course with the breathtaking backdrop of the blue Pacific."



With each room completely redone in 2013, accommodations in this glamorous coastal retreat blend modern convenience with timeless luxury.  La V offers 114 guestrooms and suites, including 16 exquisite Villas and a 10th floor with Presidential Sky Suite and family-friendly connecting rooms.  All guestrooms are appointed with ample amenities, including 100% Egyptian cotton linens and complimentary wireless Internet.
