A Triada Palm Springs Review
Trevor and I are Staycationaholics and this Memorial Weekend, we decided to staycation it up at the Triada Palm Springs Hotel. Located in the movie colony area, this hotel is easily becoming one of my favorite getaway hotels. Here, you can escape the noise of a busy life, grab a cocktail poolside, take a rooftop outdoor shower, dine at Iluminara restaurant, or take a long nap in one of their Spanish style suites – aka casitas. While the hotel only has 56 rooms, no two rooms are alike!
Spanish Casitas in Palm Springs
This luxurious Hacienda overlooks the San Jacinto mountains, is a short stroll to downtown and is known to have a star-studded past. I’ll get to that in a bit. While it doesn’t have a reputation for being a grand hotel, it certainly has a rep for being 5 stars but easy on the wallet. Perfect for all you Frugal Fancies out there. For $169.00 a night (on memorial weekend), my husband and found ourselves in a large Casita, fully equipped with a kitchen, two balconies, a master bedroom and living room. Room rates typically start at $219 in low season (summer) and $419 in high season. So how did we land the deal? Here’s our lil tip – Use Hotel Tonight (the app) to score last minute deals on the best hotels in town. If our hotel of choice is not available on the app, we usually book on Hotels.com. For every 10 booked rooms, you get one free.
The History of the Triada Palm Springs Hotel
I absolutely love places with character and a history. First built in 1939, the Triada Palm Springs has been known by several different names over the last few decades:
- The Ambassador Hotel
- The Alan Ladd’s Spanish Inn
- The Spanish Inn
- Now, the Autograph collection by Marriott.
A Star-Studded Past
Famous guests at this hotel included Hollywood stars: Elizabeth Taylor, Lana Turner, Tyrone Power and Esther Williams. According to PalmSpringsLife.com, Howard Hughes used to watch over his hotel, The Colony Palms (next door), from his room at this hotel.

Every room and casita is different.
We had a second level suite overlooking the pool (There is also a salt water pool with poolside bar)
It’s a pet friendly hotel
100 degree weather = perfect pool weather
Dual Balconies in Suite 315
Private outdoor shower cabanas

Iluminara restaurant is located in the Triada Hotel and according to ravers on yelp, it’s delish!
Take my word for it…
