Great place to relax a couple of days. Quiet, clean, spacious rooms, simple but nice breakfast, including fresh fruit. Pool ok, garden well kept. Not the usual PS gay resort atmosphere, as it is NOT clothing optional. Clus to the new BUZZ, which takes you downtown.

A group of us from Phoenix visited for three nights and used the hotel and spa as our base of operations while dining, clubbing and visiting the area sites. Great intimate hotel with great staff and amenities. The spa treatments are wonderful. Men only and clothing is not optional.

The place is fantastic. Not large, not noisy, great room with view, sumptuous breakfast, sunny pool with misters, iced tea all afternoon. Great service, friendly staff, perfect location. Loyal, friendly guests. Highly recommended. We will be back.

My partner and I have vacationed many times in Palm Springs. We have stayed in several other hotels/resorts there over the years. But this was our first visit with East Canyon Hotel & Spa. It will NOT be our last! What a first class operation. The owner and staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had never stayed in this... More

We booked this hotel based on the great reviews and their summer promotion and it couldn't have been better. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful during our entire stay. Most surprising was the amount of amenities included in your stay, since I'm so used to being nickel and dimed by every other hotel out there. Two complimentary drinks per... More

Our stay at the East Canyon was brief but very enjoyable. The grounds were beautifully maintained, the room was quiet, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Even the cleaning lady took the time to say hello and ask how our day was. I was impressed with the little touches such as complimentary sunscreen by the pool deck. Overall... More

I was flying solo in a field of (gay) couples celebrating anniversaries, honeymoons, and get-aways from LA, but felt completely comfortable in the elegant setting. Not clothing optional, a Saturday cocktail hour helped break the ice. The rooms were tastefully appointed and the bathrooms much nicer than you'd expect from a room at this price, with luxurious finishes and amenities.

Just arrived today, but couldn't wait to share the wonderfully warm reception we received today from everyone. Lovely room is spacious and smartly styled, with a terrific bath and amenities. If you want peace and quiet, and a super-accommodating staff, don't hesitate. What a marvelous find, and am look -ing forward to returning soon.

I can't imagine a better place to stay in Palm Springs. While this is primarily a gay resort, anyone would feel welcomed here because of such a friendly and attentive staff. The entire resort is excellently maintained. The rooms are nicely decorated and the pool area is so relaxing. I like, too, that this is NOT a clothing-optional resort like... More

Great stay at East Canyon. The hotel is relaxing and Richard and team have just the right amount of engagement with their guests (helpful when needed but not intrusive). The pool area and grounds are well maintained and have a garden feel (reflected in many of the pictures). The bedroom and bathroom were good sized and clean; the bed comfy;... More
