5 Palm Springs boutique hotels

Once frequented by classic Hollywood names like Clark Gable and Shirley Temple, The Willows is a historic Palm Springs inn that's still coveted by today's Hollywood elite. Word on the street is Cameron Diaz and Justin Timberlake checked in at The Willows in 2007 as a last-ditch effort to try to mend their on-the-outs relationship. Nestled up against the San Jacinto Mountains, this ultra-exclusive hotel requires remote access to get through its gates and is near the Palm Springs Art Museum as well as countless restaurants and boutiques.
