Just what you thought Palm Springs would be…
The Monkey Tree Hotel is a classic example of 1960’s mid-century modern design. It is California chill – updated for the 21st Century. The hotel is a private 16-room boutique property nestled against the backdrop of the gorgeous San Jacinto mountains on a lushly landscaped one-acre property in Palm Springs, California.
There are no resort fees here. Parking is free. WiFi is free. A continental breakfast is served every morning and is included in the room price. Inside the expansive private courtyard are a large, heated saltwater swimming pool and lush lawn area spacious enough to find a secluded area to relax in peace and quiet. The hotel boasts the area’s only Scandinavian spa, which includes a dry sauna, hot tub and cold plunge. Guests are welcome to use the spa to rejuvenate, re-energize, or recover from a workout.
The owners, husband and wife team Gary and Kathy Friedle, purchased the hotel in 2015 and wanted to create a destination for vacationers looking for a clean, spacious room; quality food; a beautiful swimming pool; and a relaxing atmosphere in which to unwind. This might include a workout and a massage, or it might be lounging by the pool with a book. They renovated and re-opened The Monkey Tree Hotel with all this in mind. The smallest room on the property measures 300 sf, with the largest suite measuring 725 sf. The two largest rooms (The Jungle Room and The Apartment) also have their own 500+sf private patios, for the ultimate in seclusion and privacy.
