Life’s a party and why not? You never know who you’ll meet or what adventure you’ll find. So when it comes to planning a bachelor party, a girl’s weekend away, or a reunion with college friends, you need a small hotel that won’t quell the laughter or spoil your fun, one that understands your desire to cut loose and have an unforgettable Palm Springs experience.

Many Palm Spring boutique hotels have less than a dozen rooms, perfect for property buy outs so you and your party can have the whole place to yourselves. Some will even arrange for a chef for on-site catering.

Les Cactus Palm Springs, named after the 60s French rock n’ roll hit by Jacques Dutronc, brings to life an “Airbnb-meets-hotel’ experience to the desert. The historic 1930’s property has been refreshed under the direction of up-and-coming LA-based hotelier Matthew Kurtz in partnership with local Palm Springs hoteliers Richard Crisman and Jeff Brock. Together they deliver a whimsical boutique hotel with minimalistic yet chic design and approachable service – all at an affordable price point.

The pet-friendly hotel boasts a clean and eclectic California design aesthetic, featuring 27 guestrooms that include a mix of one-bedroom suites and studios.

The Tiki Hotel was just lovingly restored by new owners Tracy and Jerry Turco, but is still a glorious throwback to the 1960s. Originally built in 1961, the Turcos renovated and reopened this 11-room boutique hotel in 2021. There is Polynesian theming and tiki memorabilia throughout the property, with ukuleles in every room. Tracy carefully selected — and in some cases, designed — the wallpaper, bedding, and other style elements, and the bathrooms all have new tile in the showers and retro orange sinks. The Tiki Hotel also has an event space for intimate gatherings, with an attached bathroom, kitchen, and patio. Outside, the swimming pool is flanked by tiki statues and a bamboo bar, with a custom Damon Johnson mural right outside of the gift shop, which stocks everything from lipstick created by Tracy to skateboard decks.
