We stayed here for two nights for a wedding October 27th and 28th. Room was modern and comfortable, very clean and bright. We had the buffet breakfast which was really complete and good about $20 for the full buffet which is fairly standard for these types of hotels. I loved the juicer with pre-cut veggies and fruits, that made the buffet something special. The pool area was really well-designed, with a heated pool, un-heated pool, zero-entry, and loads of lounge chairs. Service was great- we needed a sewing kit for a last minute thing and they sent one right up. Valet parking was EXPENSIVE ($25!) for being 20 minutes outside of Palm Springs, but they really hustled for the car, you never had to wait more than 3 minutes.
I had a facial in the Spa and wished that I had more time to spend in there- It had all the amenities of a modern spa with Steam room, sauna, showers, relaxation. The Facial I got was top notch- I was really pleased that they could handle me coming in straight from the pool and right out to a wedding and they did just what I asked for--a true custom service.
The views from the pool area are great, but our room view was not that great, it was the roof of another part of the hotel. I liked that all the rooms have balconies however- nice feature. There was a nightclub in the hotel which looked like it could be fun if you had a group of people you were with, but as a social scene I wouldn't count on the hotel as it seemed not very happening at the club or the bar (just kind of half-full).
The hotel is a lovely place to stay, but I don't think it is a good destination in and of itself-- just a respite from other activities in the Palm Springs area.
