 The hotel itself is an homage to Hollywood’s Golden era with Spanish Colonial influences boasting 56 guest rooms and suites, stunning mountain views, and a dedicated staff ready to make your stay welcome.

 Before your evening soiree, grab a pre-dinner cocktail and make reservations to experience the on-site, legendary Purple Palm Restaurant & Bar.  Inspired by the interesting personalities that frequented this establishment, the restaurant is named after the infamous “Purple Gang”, where renowned mobster Ari Wertheimer and his pals gathered. The restaurant and terrace certainly have a sophisticated ambiance to delight today’s VIP’s; however, it’s Chef Cale Falk and his incredible cuisine that continues to draw food aficionados to this retro “clubhouse”.  Chef Falk has crafted a well-cultivated culinary repertoire prepared with local ingredients when possible, bold seasonal flavorings and a flare for the eclectic.

 In keeping with his talented abilities, Chef Falk has prepared a decadently delicious New Year’s Eve pre-fixe menu to ring in 2016 in style:
