This was hands down the best Bed and Breakfast or hotel experience my boyfriend and I have had in our four years together! And it was the first place I have truly ever been able to relax at thanks to the amazing setting, the gorgeous rooms and the accommodating staff. I didn't have to lift a finger and we had... More

I attended a wedding that took over the whole property for the weekend. Family and friends were all staying at the Chateau. The rehearsal dinner was catered in the dining room which was yummy and we did not have to drive anywhere. There are several large fire pits on the patio - great for the chill in the evening.

OMG beautiful, charming, peaceful, with a lovely staff. We were looking for a chance to be in a more private, quiet getaway. Didn't know what to expect and we were thrilled to find we were happy with everything. The lake was calming and fun to have wine by. Great spa/bath in the suite. We're so happy we went and can't...

We went over for my birthday and selected the Chateau mainly because of the wonderful reviews posted on TripAdvisor and other travel sites. We only stayed one night because the facility was entirely rented out for a wedding party for the next night. (there is a review from the wedding group also.) We loved the Chateau, the location and the... More

On a spontaneous trip to Palm Dessert for the weekend, my boyfriend and I decided to see what was available on Hotels Tonight. Impressed is an understatement to describe how we felt arriving at The Chateau. Working in the hospitality industry, I pay close attention to every detail of a hotel. Most importantly the energy upon arrival is essential. The... More

I don't even know how to begin to talk about The Chateau and the absolutely fabulous staff! Last year my daughter decided she wanted to get married in La Quinta, and the La Quinta Country Club was selected, Tom the Manager of the Club told us about what he called the hidden gem of La Quinta...The Chateau.

Darling Duo took the words right out of my mouth! We have been coming to Palm Springs for years now, and had stayed at all the "best" resorts-with mixed results! For the past 8 years we have stayed at first the Inn, now called the Chateau. The interior has been totally redone with a wonderful glitzy-fantastic Parisian flavor. Our bedroom... More

Part of me doesn't want to write a review for the public because I want to keep this little gem of a retreat all to my self.

We found the Chateau via Hotel Tonight and we were looking for a quick overnight get away. The price was right we figured why not spend some time out in the desert?
