*the desert's best kept secret*
Welcome to the ALOHA HOTEL nestled in the wind-free south end of sunny Palm Springs, California, in the Tahquitz River Estates! We are located in a sheltered cove at the foot of the San Jacinto mountains adjacent to the Tahquitz Canyons.
Established in 1947, we were the first hotel in the Palo Verde Estates, as we are located on South Palm Canyon at Palo Verde Avenue, 1080 South Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, California. 92264.
Aloha Hotel Palm Springs, an eleven unit boutique hotel, is the jackpot for Mid Century architecture! If you like architecture, you will find home tours of the old Hollywood stars are almost as abundant as those of architectural tours. During the month of February each year there is even special ten day homage to Modernism Week, an event packed week with weekends on both ends full of parties and tours. Spanish and even Hawaiian style architecture can be found.
Whatever you are looking for, while on vacation at the Aloha Hotel Palm Springs, you will have a good time discovering our well kept secrets. Everything in Palm Springs is close by, and with 360 days of sunshine in paradise, relax, recharge, and renew!
After over 40 years at the Aloha Hotel Palm Springs, we would be honored to assist in your plans. We can help you in English, Spanish, Italian, and French.. If you are flying in, you do not need a car to visit the desert from our location.
We can accommodate your party of 1 up to 30 at the historic Aloha Hotel Palm Springs! Bring your family and your friends, or tell no one and come by yourself. Get away: you deserve it!

For example, if there are 20 guests in your party, you could rent a combination of rooms, for a total of 8 rooms! The pool side area has a large cabana and a barbecue adjacent. We have an area for a band and/or DJ poolside. There would be an additional charge for visiting guests for a day pass for your event. This is a great place to host an event all year long including summer.
If you would like to be poolside for day use, we offer that as well. A fabulous day could include a hike at Tahquitz Canyon, Palm Canyon, or Murray Canyon, in the early morning with the rest of the day relaxing by our new pool. The 3.5 mile, South Lykken trail is one short block away. This trail is free and of moderate difficulty if you go all the way to the top! You will see phenomenal views until you reach the picnic table at the highest peak. Tahquitz Canyon is adjacent to the Lykken trail. There is a fee and gate hours. This canyon has waterfalls if we have had rain. If you like to hike or would like to jump start your day, we are the closest hotel to any hiking paths in this desert. Why does that matter? Enjoy the breathtaking view of the mountains all day from your room. Tis the season! The weather right now is PERFECT!
