Del Marcos Hotel, Palm Springs

Del Marcos Hotel, Palm Springs

The Del Marcos was designed by William F. Cody in 1947 and is one of the few Mid-Century hotels still up and running. With the gorgeous San Jacinto Mountains in the background, the Del Marcos is one of the most photographed buildings in town. With a stay here, or even just stopping by to have a look, and it's easy to imagine yourself a Hollywood star, vacationing away from the LA madhouse.

The Del Marcos is currently operating as a boutique hotel, with period furnishings that complete the Mid-Century ambiance. It's located only one block from downtown. It's a highly sought-after location for its retro, laid-back vibe, and the current management does a beautiful job of maintaining the hotel's ambiance. It's an adult-only property featuring daily happy hours with cocktails and appetizers around the pool. Pretty much every room has a stellar view of the pool and the mountains in the background.

The Del Marcos Hotel was declared as a Class 1 historic site by Palm Springs City Council in May 2012.
