Limón Palm Springs is all about the luxe life

Limón Palm Springs knows how to impress.

It starts even before guests arrive at this luxury boutique hotel. Limón is reserved by just one group at a time, and the property’s “celebration specialists” will help with everything from reserving transportation and golf tee-times to hiring a gourmet chef to make a delicious meal onsite. Once at the property, guests are greeted with a charcuterie board, featuring locally-sourced ingredients, plus chilled bottles of prosecco and sparkling rosé.

The hotel accommodates up to 14 people and with six large guest suites, there’s room for everyone to spread out. The linens are by Frette and the bath products by L’Occitane, and each suite has its own flatscreen television and patio area. The communal spaces include a fully-equipped kitchen with an oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and ice machine and a living room with an oversized wet bar, foosball table, and television.

Limón is an all-steel, mid-century modern building dating back to 1956, when it was an apartment house. While walking around the property guests can’t help but smile — there are cheerful pops of color everywhere, from the yellow front door to the funky wallpaper and eclectic artwork hanging on the walls. Limón was designed by Palm Springs’ H3K Home + Design, and the hotel’s website says the firm took their inspiration for Limón “from the optimistic era and continental graphics and style of the 1968 Mexico City Olympics.”

That’s just the inside. Outside, there’s a large pool, spa, television, and barbecue area with a built-in counter for dining. It’s the perfect place for groups to start their day, enjoying breakfast under the sun, or wind down at night, catching up under the stars in the spa.
