Constructed more than 80 years ago by Cunard Steamship executive Delos Cooke, the Royal Palms is done in Spanish Mission style; it’s full of winding, tree-covered paths, arches, narrow walkways, gardens, and antique fountains, creating the tranquil feel of a Mediterranean monastery. The denseness landscaping belies its relatively small footprint on Camelback Road in Arcadia. The most memorable guest rooms are the designer casitas, each with a distinctive decor ranging from opulent contemporary to classic European, but all the rooms are beautiful, with super-plush beds. T. Cook’s restaurant is one of the best in the city.
