Holiday House is a 28-room boutique hotel located in downtown Palm Springs. Originally opened in 1951, the hotel was designed by noted architect Herbert W. Burns.

Today, it has been reimagined by interior designer Mark D. Sikes and the team behind Sparrows Lodge.

The property features midcentury inspired elements combined with a communal atmosphere and whimsical edge. The design centers around Gio Ponti inspired tile-work in the bar and artwork throughout the property including pieces by David Hockney, Roy Liechtenstein, Herb Ritts, Alex Katz and Mr. Brainwash, with a garden sculpture by Donald Sultan.

Hotel Backstory

The new kid on the block

Holiday House is going back to its roots, while embracing modern style.

The Herbert W. Burns-designed luxury hotel was built in 1951, and has been reimagined by interior designer Mark D. Sikes. After several years as the Chase Hotel, the new Holiday House opened on May 1, with 28 guest rooms and calming shades of blue throughout the property. All of the completely remodeled rooms have oversized showers, Waterworks bath hardware, and Malin +Goetz bath amenities, and some have private outdoor space and Smeg appliances. Walking through the property, visitors will spot intricate tilework, art by David Hockney, Roy Liechtenstein, Herb Ritts, Alex Katz, and Mr. Brainwash, and a garden sculpture by Donald Sultan.

"It is a very un-cookie cutter hotel, where people feel as if they are staying at a friend's beautiful house," house manager Abdi Manavi said. There's also a positive vibe that has been "created by all the beautiful, different areas that people can use for socializing."

The property is adults only, 21 and over, and there are no telephones or televisions in the rooms, ensuring tranquility. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., guests can stop by The Pantry, which serves a simple breakfast, included in the hotel's daily service fee, and lunch and snack items, like the HH Lobster Roll, Little Gem Salad, and The Pantry Cheeseburger. The full bar is open until 11 p.m.

Abdi believes what sets Holiday House apart is "the design and attention to details," along with an "extremely hospitable" staff. For only being open a few months, Holiday House already has impressive feedback.

"We have only had wonderful reviews so far, which is pretty sensational for a new hotel," Abdi said. "Decor and service are the positive things mentioned the most, as well as how beautiful the entire property is."
