Travel fantasy: Rainbow hotel

When we go to Palm Springs for Christmas, we usually rent a house, but this new rainbow Saguaro hotel looks like a trip! What a cool place to stay (or even get married).

ps. would be especially cool if each room was one color -- like you could stay in the blue room, or the red room, etc. :)

Ohhh I love rainbow anything and everything. They should leave those chocolate gold coins on the bed...or little pots of them even!

How fun! It reminds me of the Pantone Hotel in Brussels: http://www.pantonehotel.com/
Might have to convince the hubby we need a sunny desert gettaway :)

I was wondering what the rooms look like inside. This is really beautiful in contrast to the muted desert palatte. Would be lovely to stay here.

This reminds me of something they'd build in the 70's for some reason. Love it!

Ha, someone beat me to posting about the Pantone Hotel in Brussels (where I'll be in just two months!! not staying at that particular hotel, unfortunately)

Kate said...

Wow, I don't know if I could sleep in such a rainbow room!

Koru Kate {Koru Wedding} said...

I'm sold! This is added to my travel wish list :-) I hope I can stay in a room with the purple balcony.

Violet Boutique said...

How fun! I'm always tempted to paint my living room in a bright colour - maybe I should stick to white and stay here instead!

Thanks for sharing! xo

oh I saw this on a Design magazine a while ago! I love this place, it's so bright and colorful, I also like the architectural aesthetics of it!

Brittany said...

Palm Springs is definitley on my "To Visit" list! I would be torn from staying at a fun hotel like this or trying to rent a mid-century house.

Maria said...

Rainbow hotel makes everyone happy! Beautiful. Fantastic!

Love the exterior, but the room might be just a spot too crazy for me to feel relaxed in.

That's the epitome of a happy place!

As Liz Lemon would say: "I want to go to there."

Lindsay said...

A Saguaro just opened here a few months back in Scottdale as well...I havent had the chance to check it out yet but I've been hearing good things!

Morgan Stone said...

ahhhh just looking at those colors makes me smile! So bright and cheery, I love it :) xoxo, morgan

Sarah O'Brien said...

KristiMcMurry said...

OH.WOW. I would love that place :)

in dreams said...

kind of reminds me of a building that was right around the corner from me, when i was living in london, england (photo here: http://poladreamer.blogspot.com/2010/04/indoors-outdoors.html)...i love anything to do with rainbows and colour graduation!

LV said...

We just stayed at the ACE with our toddler a few weeks ago and LOVED it!!! There was a retro fashion show going on one night and I was able to slip down from our room, get a ticket, and watch mid-century modern fashions and learn about that era Palm Springs on slides. Loved the pool, the restaurant (!!! so great!!!), and the rooms were amazing. Cedar planked shower! Can't wait to stay there again. The kid loved it too.

Meagan Murtagh said...

this makes me so happy!

I stayed there opening weekend, very cute! The poolside bar serves up some delicious sangria.

SKC said...

So cheerful and unique...brightened my cold, windy, snowy day!

Meghann @ Fuzzy.Little.Wishballs said...

Cool!!! I never knew there was such a place!

Ella said...

omgosh, this place is adorable. the bed sheets actually remind me of a pair of socks I have. lol I definitely wanna visit this place one day.

Ann said...

I actually just stayed there the first weekend it opened! Each room actually IS themed a color, with either a complimentary color in the bathroom or a secondary color accent. We were in the lime green room w/ blue furniture and an orange bathroom. It was such great color therapy.

krisel keeper said...

I think it looks so great and I'd love to stay there. Apparently "the" crowd of Palm Springs thinks it's so tacky and "soooo South Beach" and that it doesn't belong there. So, I'm thrilled to hear you like it as do so many others.

Great to hear about the Ace and toddlers from LV. Will stay at either next time.

krisel keeper said...

btw, a little fyi about another super cool hotel in Palm Springs. The Hotel Lautner looks super amazing and I'd actually love to stay there as a lover of architecture...however, it's also located in a horrible, meth-lab infested neighborhood. so, ie not the best place to be with a toddler, but it is super chic and historical!

The Blithe Files said...

Amazing place!!! It's hard to pull off a colorful structure while avoiding looking tacky.

lifesydney said...

So wonderful place, it could be very happy when stay,I guess kids will love to stay inside and have fun.

Carol said...

So cool can't image if i were there that incredible charming stunning fantasy Just too wonderful place .....

Helena said...

Oh, if this were a fair world, I'd be teleported there RIGHT NOW!

Colour is my favourite thing in the world.

Joanna Goddard said...

you're right, Jennifer, such a lovely contrast with the desert.

Joanna Goddard said...

Erin, you're going to brussels? how fun!!!

Joanna Goddard said...

krisel, so interesting to hear what the locals think! and yes -- i recommend the Ace, too, for kids -- the pool is SO much fun and super kid/dog friendly. it's the most fun, relaxed hang out. xoxo

Joanna Goddard said...

ps. so lucky for those of you who stayed opening weekend -- must have been a huge rainbow party! :)

Joanna Goddard said...

krisel, the hotel lautner looks GORGEOUS.

sarah-mai said...

We were just in PS in January and drove by the rainbow hotel...they had just finished it! We always stay at The Ace, but this looks really fun!!

"bigcanadiangirl" said...

That's so crazy. I took a photo in December when I was there. They were in the middle of painting the wild colors. LOVE it!! I posted about it here

I stayed at the PS Saguaro in February and it was fun, colorful and cheerful. Magenta room with orange furniture - which was already dinged up badly. We had the most adorable plate of free cuties in the room. But, it was not up to Ace Standards. The service was mediocre. Wouldn't stay there again. I would host an event by the pool, just for the photos.

Charlotte Wilder said...

That's so wild! I think it would be sensory overload for me after a few days there, but I'd love to visit. You find the best things!

Hi, im sure its a nice place to stay. But as a Landscape architect im i have to tell taht im very sad that architect can be able to do this in such a beautiful landscape. Waht i waht to say is that the architecture must always be integrated with the landscape and this hotel is totally not integrated. Im sur people have fun and enjoy it when they go there. But i have to say my point of view as a landscape architect. Thanks.

Anda said...

so cool and fun and ALIVE! i just booked for next month at the ACE. might have to switch my reservation. thanks for sharing, as always. <3

I like this hotel! I'ts very eye catching and warm. Choosing the rainbow as their main theme is really effective for them since it's not common at all. It's unique! I haven't seen any other hotels such as this one.

The juxtapositioning of extended stay hotels with fundamental economic, social and political strategic conflict draws criticism from global commercial enterprises, trapped by their infamous history. At the heart of the subject are a number of key factors. I plan to examine each of these factors in detail and and asses their importance.
