First time to Palm Springs. Right from the get go it was perfect with Lucy greeting us by our first names and then offered us a glass of wine or a beer while were checking in. Our room was #3 with King size bed, beer fridge, microwave and bar sink. There was a basket with chips, suckers, etc for us to snack on and water bottles in fridge. Room was cute and rustic looking but wonderful. The bed and pillows were so comfortable (realized our King size bed at home is definitely getting old and we need a new one). There are only 12 rooms in this boutique hotel and its beautiful. Grounds are perfect with lots of greenery, felt like you were in a small oasis. The hot tub was fabulous and heated pool was great. Lots of nice comfy seating around the pool and undercover sitting areas. The table with the gas fire pit was warm and cozy as it was a bit cool the 3 nights we spent there. The have a separate room with couch and chairs to play chess, watch movies (if you don't want too on your big screen TV in your room) and book cases filled with endless DVD's (new releases too) and great books & magazines to read. The galley kitchen is stocked with dishes & utensils and spices galore for you to use on the two gas b-ques they have for you to use. They also have a gas top and dishwasher and large fridge for you to use. Lots of ice cubes in fridge freezer for you to take to your room in the ice bucket supplied in your room. Endless coffee and tea and creamers supplied 24/7 and fresh fruit (oranges, apples, bananas & grapefruits) put out daily. The staff are all amazing, they are friendly, and extremely helpful. LOVED the limo service offered to take us to where ever we wish. We recommend trying to go to the Thursday evening dowtown market 6pm-10 pm streets are shut down and endless, booths of food, music and artists & crafts. We walked there and it took 25 minutes about 2 miles from hotel. No street lights on roads in palm springs so you don't want to walk in the dark, but you can call for the limo to pick up :) While the limo is free, it is recommended to tip. They also supply bikes for you to use as well. There is no workout room, but you can do lots of other things to workout in beautiful Palm Springs. Ralph's grocery store is about 2 miles from hotel to shop and get some groceries for your room, if you prefer to not eat out all the time. The only thing we wished is we could have stayed longer. We highly recommend this beautiful boutique hotel and we can't wait to go back!!!
