Of all of the hotels located in the tennis club area of Palm Springs, Desert Hills is the clear winner. We stayed for several days and attended the file festival. Many venues were an easy walk from the hotel. Unlike other higher ranked properties on this site, Desert Hills has nicer grounds, bigger rooms, a quieter location and an unrivaled ambiance of mid-century charm.Stay here once and you will never leave. Some guests we talked to have been regulars for 20 years or more. Karen Brown is right to rank this hotel as one of the best.
