Congratulations to the Ingleside Inn for winning the Palm Springs Life Best of the Best Boutique Hotel/Inn for 2012!  Owner, Mel Haber, and maitre'd, Brian Ellis have been welcoming guests for decades!  The charming hotel located on a historic estate and the continental restaurant with a lively bar has been a favorite for locals and vacationers since Frank came to town! 

Rated "One of the 10 Best" in its class by Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous!  This European-style boutique hotel captures the essence of old Palm Springs, and celebrities love it!  Once an elegant estate, the Ingleside Inn features rooms, suites, and villas- some with their own fireplaces and private patios.  Each room is individually decorated  and appointed with antiques. While in Palm Springs, make plans to dine at Melvyn's, their award-winning restaurant and say hello to Brian... tell him Kathy sent you!


Although Melvyn's has a great bar... if you are in Palm Desert or the east valley check out the Bar voted the Best by Palm Springs Life readers this year!

Kathy: Love Melvyn's and the Ingleside Inn. There are so many many boutique hotels in Palm Springs. Have you been to the Coyote Inn recently? Or the Casa Cody? Or the Chase Hotel? I usually do the Christmas walking tour from inn. Very special.

I usually don't stay at the Inns in Palm Springs because I live in La Quinta... the Casa Schowe is my favorite place!  K

That hotel looks like it could give someone a great massage! It also looks like a great hotel.

I'm kind of an eccentric place kind of girl but kudos to a great place!  I think since I am small business entrepreneur I pick other small businesses that are up and coming. Maybe the boutique aspect of it would draw me, but definately to see some celebs would be nice. Real celebs, not those realty tv people, lol!

I spent quite a bit of time down in Palm Springs years ago... and Melvyn's & Ingleside were the place to be!  Thanks for all of your comments on this post.  Based on the traffic... (good) ... I will be doing more of these Best of the Best posts for sure!
