My husband and I returned to the Orbit In for the second time in late March 2014. We are proud to be return "Orbiteers"! We had a fantastic experience! This is a classic mid-century modern hotel and a sun soaked haven (just like its sister property, The Hideaway, just down the street). The owners, Kevin & Jinny, and managers Bill... More

My wife and just stayed there for the forth time and as usual we loved it. Kevin and Bill were great and always made sure we had everything we needed. This is a wonderful mid-century modern hotel with authentic ambience. Chill out every evening at 5:00 with Orbitinis at the outdoor boomerang bar, listen to some Frank, and enjoy the... More

My husband and I stayed at The Orbit last week on our first pleasure only trip in 20 years! The Orbit In did not disappoint. We stayed in the Bertoia room, which for me a design aficionado, was such a delight! Kevin and Jinny, the owners were true hosts. They were incredibly attentive and made our stay an experience. We...

Quite accidental tourists here, we chose to break a 5000 mile drive in Palm Springs quite at the last minute. I had a default assumption of Palm Springs as a boring, staid collection of golf courses and stodgy dated hotels with steak houses and continental restaurants that were the preferred ambiance of a generation older than me. We are no... More

This place is AMAZING, that is all I can say. Cant wait to come back. The hospitality was just wonderful, they do make suggestions where to eat and what to do while in town. The bikes for rentals was a huge plus and amazing views of the mountains!

This was the second time we have stayed at the Orbit In and it never disappoints. We first stayed there seven years ago when Kevin and Jinny first purchased the property. They have lovingly upgraded and maintained this gem in the desert. We were initially on a waiting list because it was Modernism Week in Palm Springs, but Managers Elaine... More

We spent a fantastic 6 days at Orbit in early Feb. We met both the managers Elaine/Bill and owners Kevin/Jinny. Their presence and hosting of the "Orbitini Hour" made the stay for us. The property itself is a fabulous (re) creation of the 50's , really stylishly done and immaculately maintained, with easy walking to the centre. The free cycles... More

I had arranged our Palm Springs getaway as a Christmas gift to my husband. We live in San Diego, so we weren't hurting in the cold, but just wanted a romantic weekend. It was exactly what we anticipated! The owners weren't there during our stay, but hosts Elaine and Bill did a great job of making sure we felt at... More

A fantastic little hotel with amazing amenities - and amazing attention to every mid-century modern detail. A relaxing but very friendly atmosphere - highlighted by happy hour at the poolside bar. Kevin and Jinny and Bill and Elaine are superb hosts - offering warm welcomes and excellent recommendations for what to do and where to eat in PS.
