The Ingleside Inn offers a soulful history and dedicated event planning for indoor and outdoor meetings, events, and private-dining spaces. Our desert estate behind the gates is ideally situated only one block from the design-centric core of Downtown Palm Springs, yet nestled dramatically against Mount San Jacinto. Retreat-ready, our 30-room hideaway is also home to iconic Melvyn’s restaurant and lounge, as well as an elegant hacienda courtyard, and manicured lawn with pool.

Melvyn’s Restaurant & Lounge

A MODERN VINTAGE
Melvyn’s is where glamour happened–and still does. Dinners can host up to  175 seated guests and 300 for a standing reception, and our lounge can host up to 75. Fully customized menus take a fresh, local spin on beloved classics.

The Pool Deck

A SPLASHY SOIREE
On a lushly landscaped lawn surrounding the pool, up to 400 guests can experience the essential Palm Springs soiree. Plan an afternoon party with cocktails and bites, all staged from two rooms connecting to the pool. Or, indulge with cocktails by the fire pit, a formal dinner, and evening underneath the stars.

Fountain Courtyard

HOLD COURT
Framed by arches, iron gates, Mount San Jacinto in the distance and a central trickling fountain, the hacienda courtyard makes for intimate cocktails and gatherings for up to 100 guests. Enhance the flow by booking the Library, where the longtime room of opera star Lily Pons charms with a fireplace and dual sets of French doors.

The Birge Room

DRAPED IN ELEGANCE
Glittering and elegant, Melvyn’s restored private dining room houses elegant dinners for 30, or standing receptions for 50. Milestones and meetings, luncheons and brunches–let us give you the full treatment with customized menus and signature cocktails.
