Casa Cody is the oldest operating hotel in Palm Springs. Under the management of Casetta Group, Casa Cody has embarked on a historic preservation. The revitalization project brings the property into the present day with a modernist aesthetic and lifestyle amenities and services. It continues to honor its Spanish Colonial Revival heritage, adobe hacienda architecture, and timeless soul.
The resort was established by Harriet Cody, the cousin of legendary Wild West showman Buffalo Bill Cody, in 1920. Harriet Cody built the original Adobe-style house, which now serves as the main building of the resort. Over time, additional adobe bungalows were added to accommodate guests.
Despite facing multiple challenges and changes over the years, including ownership changes and periods of decline, Casa Cody has managed to retain its historic charm and allure. The resort underwent extensive renovations in the 1990s to restore and preserve its unique architectural features.

The Adobe House is a rare example of an authentic and original Adobe house.

Found on the South Lawn of Casa Cody, the Adobe presents unhindered views of the mountains and desert sky from its two patio areas and private outdoor shower. Updated with modern comforts, the home holds memories of its past. The living room stage was installed by opera singer Lawrence Tibbett, and rumors tell that it was here that Charlie Chaplin would perform.
The Winter’s House has history dating back to the 1930s. This self-contained private space is hidden away on Casa Cody’s North Lawn.

It includes a covered patio plus private indoor and outdoor dining areas.
