The Ingleside Inn & Melvyn’s Restaurant has been featured as One of the Top Ten by Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. Fashioned from a gracious estate, The Ingleside Inn is an official Palm Springs Historic Landmark.

The inn is quiet and secluded but within one block of the heart of Palm Springs. Five minutes to shopping, Convention, Desert Museum and the Palm Springs Airport. The 30 room, 2 acre property offers luxury lodging and suite accommodations that recall the romance and glamour of the golden age of Hollywood.

Ruth Hardy originally purchased the property as her private residence in the 1930s. One of her passions was playing hostess to film stars and celebrities. Unlike other popular resorts, reservations were not taken. One could only stay if personally invited by Ms. Hardy. Her list of guests included the likes of Greta Garbo, Clark Gable, and Howard Hughes.  Unfortunately, after her death the inn fell into disrepair.

In 1975, after only 15 minutes of looking at the property, Melvyn Haber, current owner, and a celebrity in his own right, purchased the inn. After spending a small fortune restoring inn, he reopened its doors to all guests, famous and not so famous. You can enjoy this well-documented adventure by reading his entertaining book, “Bedside Stories From The Ingleside Inn, by Mel Haber”.

Great for the executive retreat, or romantic escape, this legendary boutique hotel is a place to relax, refresh and re-energize. Famous as a hideaway for the celebrities of show business, finance and politics, this landmark inn would be honored to add your name to it’s guestbook.
