Palm Springs, California, United States

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Rooms are very individual in design, most have have small kitchen
  • Free Wi-Fi and daily breakfast
  • Some suites have fireplaces
  • Free bicycle rentals and yoga
  • Stone tubs in bath with plush robes
  • Gorgeous outdoor grounds, with 2 pools, fire pits, fountains, stone paths, and a Bocce court
  • Walking distance to downtown and lots of hiking

Cons

  • No children under 13 (a pro for some!)
  • No restaurant (room service and poolside eats available)
  • Pricey service charge on food
  • Far away from beaches

Bottom Line

Korakia Pensione is a striking hotel. Modeled after a Mediterranean pensione, it looks like something out of Greece or Morocco -- Forbes named it one of the sexiest hotels in America. The two Korakia Pensionepools and many outdoor spaces, including fire pits, fountains, and stone paths, are all beautiful and unexpected. And the hotel plays old movies every night outside on the terrace. The rooms are named, not numbered, and each is slightly different, but all have an old-world feel.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Korakia Pensione is within walking distance of downtown Palm Springs.

Korakia Pensione is a short walk from downtown Palm Springs but is also near the hiking trails of Tahquitz Canyon. Shopping, golf, tennis, myriad restaurants and the Palm Springs Tramway are nearby and the Palm Springs Art Museum is within walking distance.

Once known as a destination only suited for spring breakers or retirees, Palm Springs has become a classy and clean desert destination for anyone looking for an uncluttered city with resort amenities. With a healthy gay scene and the Coachella valley (and music festival) just over 30 minutes away, the Palm Springs crowd is slowly becoming harder and harder to define. Most who come are there to spend, exercise and relax.

  • 10-minute drive to airport
  • 8-minute walk to Palm Springs Art Museum
  • 12-minute drive to Tahquitz Canyon
  • 90-minute drive to Joshua Tree National Park
  • 2-hour drive to Los Angeles
  • 2-hour drive to the beach
