Before a stay at the Fairfield Inn Palm Desert, you should know to turn the shower on you must
turn to the left while pulling very hard. I've never encountered this particular trick to turning on water, so when the water did not come on when I pulled, pushed, turned left, turned right, I thought it was broken. I called the front desk who told me, "Oh, customers have trouble turning on the showers all the time." I suggested if it's a common problem they may want to post instructions. Since I doubt that will happen ... turn to the left and pull hard. As far as the heat goes, the thermostat will show whatever temperature you choose, but apparently only actually heats if you call the front desk, who again will tell you "Customers can never get those to work." and they always have to send their maintenance man to "fix" them. So go forewarned, ask for extra blankets and anticipate some interaction with the hotel staff. The staff are friendly and seem to accept these idiosyncrasies as the norm. Otherwise, the room was clean, beds comfortable, the TV worked, no fridge, convenient location.
