Originally established by Detroit mobster Al Wertheimer in 1936, this Spanish-Moroccan hotel has a former guest list that includes Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan, and Elizabeth Taylor. In 2007, the hotel reopened after a $16 million renovation led by renowned designer Martyn Lawrence-Bullard. The 56 guest rooms are decorated with red concrete floors, sisal rugs, and woven Suzani headboards, and some also include claw-foot tubs and fireplaces. Surrounded by lemon and palm trees, the central courtyard contains a Spanish-tiled swimming pool with views of the San Jacinto Mountains, as well as the flagship Purple Palm Restaurant which serves gourmet Mediterranean cuisine.

Room to Book:

Secluded by lush gardens, the ultra-private casitas are well worth the extra cost; just be sure to book one far from the adjacent street.

Insider Tip:

For a memorable breakfast, head to Cheeky’s—just a three-minute walk away—and order the bacon flight, which includes apple-cinnamon, coffee, and jalapeño varieties.
