Concierge.com's insider take:

Following a $16 million renovation—courtesy of Cher's interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard—the Spanish-style Colony Palms is redeeming itself after stints as a brothel and a mobster-owned speakeasy back in the 1930s. The 56 rooms in this Moroccan-chic boutique are small but lovingly appointed with high-tech goodies (flat-screen TVs, Wi–Fi, iPod docking stations), seven-foot tall Turkish tapestry headboards, and swank touches such as Dean & Deluca nibbles in the mini-bar. The tropical-inspired restaurant bar, The Purple Palm, is a comfortable place to sip cocktails by the pool or take in the purple mountain vistas, all of which makes this casually cool retreat feel worlds away—somewhere between Casablanca and Ibiza—from its convenient downtown Palm Springs setting.

From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:

A speakeasy and brothel for naughty weekending movie-industry types in the 1930s, the 56-room Colony Palms has a new incarnation as a cool restaurant-hotel. Located in a part of downtown Palm Springs now favored by the West Hollywood crowd, the motel-style Spanish colonial revival buildings surround a garden with cypress trees and a pool that is an oasis of palm-fronded, brightly flowered old California. Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, who has designed houses for Cher, among others, has boldly updated the interior decor with arresting Suzani appliqué pillows, Indonesian settees, Moroccan tray tables, and black-and-white thirties-style photography of scantily clad starlets. A huge Moroccan daybed fronts one side of the pool outside the superlative Purple Palm restaurant.
