A Place in the Sun is a perfect quiet get a way for people that don't need all the amenities of room service and gym. It's located just blocks from great shopping and dining. Also minutes from the best hiking in the desert. Norman from the front desk made us feel very welcome. The guests that we met had been... More

We recently had another special visit to 'A Place in the Sun' in downtown Palm Springs. Walking distance to all the downtown restaurants and shopping. You could not tempt us away from this property with a 5 star hotel giveaway! It is all about the ambiance. We love the friendly and efficient staff and, of course, returning friends we have... More

We stayed in the two bedroom bungalow and loved every minute! Roomy for 4 adults and 2 kids and was a great vacation. We used the grill and the hot tub and the kids had fun in the pool. Everything was very clean and I loved the attention to detail that the owners have. Would def stay again!

One of the many small hotels in Palm Springs the Place in the Sun has around 17 rooms that are by in large rented by returnees. We were first timers who stayed in a smaller studio. The room is small, but we were aware of its size as we previewed it on the hotel website. We were at the Indian... More

We really enjoyed our stay at A Place in the Sun. The grounds were gorgeously landscaped with beautiful flowers, the rooms were spacious and lovely, and the pool was refreshing. The staff gets an A+! When I realized that I had forgotten my favorite pillow in my room, they immediately mailed it to me. We felt like we were in... More

We stayed off season and actually were the only ones there. It was absolutely magical and the service (although with very few to serve) was still excellent. It is a diamond in the sand, a must see and charm that can only be experienced. Don't miss it on your next trip to Palm Springs.

Our group of seven ladies all whole-heartedly agreed that A Place in the Sun was the PERFECT place to stay. Many times website pictures and brochures are not accurate...in this case, neither did this beautiful garden hotel any justice! The grounds and the room were meticulous. Bungalow 18, the two bedroom/two bath bungalow, had two fireplaces (one electric in the... More

We stayed in a 1 bedroom bungalow with a private patio. The bungalow is large, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for self catering. The location is in a quiet neighborhood and if you are not afraid of walking you can go by foot to downtown. If you do not miss lots of other visitors and restaurant on the... More

I didn't know quite what to make of the place when we first arrived. It is definitely 'dated'... but so cute. Lots of windows .... Even had a tiny private outside nook... It didn't take long to know this was a great choice for us. Very quiet, laid back... lots of gardens and green grass (unlike some resorts in Palm... More
