Established in 1933, the Warm Sands Villas has a history as colorful as the city of Palm Springs. In 1947, under the ownership of then police chief Gus Kettman, the hotel experienced a dramatic expansion, nearly tripling its size and further developing the grounds. The hotel was host to its share of notables as well, from Shirley Temple to Clark Gable (known to love Mrs. Kettman’s enchiladas).
In 2001, the hotel underwent an equally dramatic renovation, updating guestrooms to include modern amenities while preserving its charming Spanish architecture and expansive courtyard. All 27 rooms now feature complete climate control, travertine stone floors, king sized beds, and wireless access to our high speed internet connection. New furnishings were added late last year.
