The Colony Palms Hotel has you covered this New Year’s Eve. Whether your party is content to celebrate with a gourmet extravaganza or up for a night of out followed by waking up in the New Year in grand style, this four-star boutique is the perfect hideaway to prepare for an eventful evening out.
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. Elegant décor, modern amenities, and lavish comforts invite the most discerning guests to enjoy the luxurious surroundings including the lush garden courtyard, a stunning pool deck, and the tranquil Moroccan Spa.
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.
