This hotel's staff was amazing and we felt very, very at home. Lucy toured the property with us, poured us wine, showed the community kitchen and we were greated with a basket of snacks - free! Most 5 start hotels don't provide these types of amenities. Lucy referred to us by name throughout our visit, and even asked my daughter... More

Another wonderful experience in Palms Springs, the family who owns and runs both the Desert Riviera and Hotel California have gotten it down to a fine art! Their customer service is the best, as is all of the people who work there. It was our 1st time at this property and we loved everything about it, the rooms, location, and... More

Hotel California is really great. Lucy, Larry, and Jay go the extra mile to make you feel welcome, and most appreciated is that you don't feel nickel and dimed to death (free wine, water, snacks, DVDs, and most of all they pick you up and deliver you to the airport (and downtown) in their wonderful Harley Davidson stretch limo). We... More

Such a pleasant getaway! Larry, Lucy, Jay and the entire staff are so helpful and pleasant. The grounds are immaculate as well as the rooms. It is nice that every room has a semi private little patio area. The pool and spa were heated and always ready for use. The free limo service with driver Jay is over the top!!!!... More

We were greeted at the gate by Lucy who called us by name before we even stepped on to the property. She has hospitality down to an art. This was our first trip to Palm Springs and once we stepped inside we didn't want to leave. In fact we spent our first two days just relaxing in the pool and... More

I loved the Hotel California! Lucy is a charming host, and she went out of her way to make us feel welcome and cared for. I came down with a cold during my stay, and Lucy went to the store to purchase medicine for me, which was really sweet. We also had friends call to arrange a surprise champagne delivery... More

It''s not always the actual visit that makes the lasting impression. Ran into issues with the stay and they bent over backward to help out. This property is highly recommended and I'll go out of my way to let everyone know about it.

Larry and his daughter, Lucy, made this visit easy, comfortable, and fun. The Hotel is quaint, clean, and accomodative...our room had a small kitchen, two televisions, couch...etc. Pool and hot tub were most pleasant. Hummingbirds were everywhere and indicative of the tempo we enjoyed.
