Palm Springs has been a favorite hideaway for generations of celebrities, even earning the nickname “Hollywood’s Playground.” Our close proximity to Hollywood made us a star-studded weekend retreat for world-famous movie stars and musicians who purchased homes and rendezvoused in nearby hotels and resorts.
That legacy lives on today, and Hollywood’s Playground is yours to discover. Order the steak Frank Sinatra used to eat at Johnny Costa’s, or the pastrami sandwich that Elvis enjoyed at Sherman’s Deli. Golf where Walt Disney and Bob Hope hit the links, and hike where Frank Capra filmed one of his early movies. Have a drink where the Rat Pack sang and partied the night away. And stay in Gloria Swanson’s former residence – or Leonardo DiCaprio’s current one. Live the life of the celebrities during your next visit to Palm Springs.
From overnight rentals in celebrity homes to hotel rooms with Hollywood ties, you’re never far from a star-studded connection when you stay in Palm Springs. Lodge overnight in the 1.3 acre estate designed in 1963 for Dinah Shore, the timeless mid-century modern home that’s now the residence of Leonardo DiCaprio, who rents it out when he’s away. Or splurge with a half-dozen of your friends on a getaway to Frank Sinatra’s Twin Palms Estate, a midcentury modern classic designed for the Chairman of the Board in 1947. Amin Casa, Gloria Swanson’s former residence turned hotel, is another great option for those who want a brush with fame. Or stay inside Gene Autry’s former residence, a two-bedroom, two-bathroom dwelling he maintained while he operated the on-site hotel, now the Parker Palm Springs.
