Palm Springs Rendezvous in the 50's called The Mira Loma!
Rendezvous was originally built in the 1930's and later expanded to the current footprint in the 1950's. The architecture is typical of Palm Springs and it has the unique feature of a Bermuda style roof around a quadrangle courtyard. The Mira Loma, as it was known previously, was established in 1938 and was a relaxing hideaway for such notable guests as Marilyn Monroe, Veronica Lake, Gloria Swanson and Hugh O'Brien. Various stories exist about Marilyn's favorite room - now called Pretty in Pink. The area where the hotel is situated is "uptown" Palm Springs and is very close to the Racquet Club where many celebs used to stay and party in it's hey day.
Over the years, each new owner brought their own flair to the property, and in 1999 the name was changed to Ballantines. Though the property has always been a 1950's theme, the current format was executed by the current owners Marty, Barb, & Jake Cohen and their wonderful staff. After a 9 month renovation, the property reopened in 2008 as Rendezvous. While the property retained its 1950's feel many modern conveniences were added to make our guests more comfortable. One of the biggest improvements was the new commercial kitchen which allows us to provide our famous breakfasts and wonderful cocktail and appetizer hour.
