“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Just got back from a 2 night stay and was pleasantly surprised. All rooms are single story in this small boutique hotel, and no matter what room, you were steps away from a heated pool and spa open 24/7. It was awesome being able to soak in the spa at 1am ;). Rooms were small but cozy and clean, beds were very comfy. The only thing i didnt like was the lack of an enclosed closet and ours was in the bathroom? Odd. No bathtub in our room, and no 24 hr front desk or maid service - but these were minor issues. El Mirasol restaurant on the hotel grounds had such good authentic food as other reviewers have said. Would definitely stay here again!

Chooby ... thank you so much for your ringing endorsement of Los Arboles! The 1937 design of the hotel meant we had to do some "creative" room layout during the renovation/rebuild process. If you need a room with a bigger closet or an armoire for your next visit ... ask us at time of booking and we'll do our best to see you get one!

Thanks again

We were part of the fantastic 40th birthday celebration discussed below by a few fellow reviewers. This was our first visit to Palm Springs, my wife and I really enjoyed ourselves. Los Arboles is hidden away on a busy street. The recent remodel was well done. Beautiful stained doors and wood windows, flat screen TV, Spanish style furniture and decor, very clean and comfortable. The pool area is relaxing and quiet but the occasional offer of a pool side margarita or cold beer was very welcome. The entire staff was friendly and accommodating. We will certainly stay again on our next visit!

I just had my 50 B'day celebration with family and friends at Los Arboles Hotel. It is such a charming, warm, welcoming property and staff . Loved the room and hanging around the pool.
Close to restaurants and shops. The restaurant at the Los Arboles is awesome, great food and even better margaritas. We were greeted and escorted to our room by Andrew, which was a nice touch. Liked the small comfy feeling I had when I was there.
Highly recommended by us !!!!!

Room Tip: We had 3 rooms in our party, one on each side of the hotel and they were all great !

The weekend of October 26 through the 28, 2012 was a destination party weekend for a very good friend of ours. His partner planned the entire weekend of festivities for family and friends, for his 40th Birthday celebration. We could not have had a better time. Andrew and Russell were so warm and attentive. The food for Friday evening cocktails and the subsequent dinner, on Saturday, was fantastic. Although there were almost 40 of us and most of the rooms surround the pool area, it felt very intimate. It was as if we had our own little hacienda. The location was close to downtown,Old Palm Springs. During the day, there were plenty of restaurants and shops to explore. However, most of us just chose to enjoy the pool and gorgeous weather.

After reading some previous reviews, I do agree that the rooms, while absolutely immaculate and beds very comfortable, could use a little more decor. I also agree that a little fridge could be used in each room, as well. Palm Springs is a warm/hot weather destination. The ability to keep cold drinks and water would be a nice addition. I also feel that a morning coffee bar by the pool area would be awesome, if the management did not want to put coffee makers in each room. While these are just suggestions, our experience as a large group of guests was fantastic and I would not hesitate to return. Since the pool is surrounded buy a safety gate and we had three children under five years old, Los Arboles is also excellent for families who would like to avoid bigger resorts in the area. Thanks Andrew and Russell for making our weekend so wonderful.

Thanks for the nice comments Ruby ... and I was delighted to hear that your group really enjoyed the weekend at Los Arboles. Decor touches are being done room by room and we are almost finished. Rick Vanocur (local Palm Springs lighting and interior design guy) has been helping us out at prices that will allow us to keep our rates competitive. And coffee makers will be in all rooms in the next couple days. We've got a handful of refrigerators and can place them in rooms on request but are looking in ways to get one in every room. Those 1937 designed rooms don't always make that convenient for us! Thanks again and we hope to see you back at Los Arboles soon.
¡Gracias!

Los Arboles Hotel is perfectly situated for getting around while in Palm Springs. We were greeting enthusiastically by Russell, who others have already praised in their reviews. Actually, I can heartily endorse the entire staff including everyone in the Mirasol restaurant. Everyone was so exceptionally helpful and genuine - kinda refreshing for US hospitality. Our room was adequate and clean without having much in the frills department. Everything worked fine, and the bathrooms now come stocked with hand soap and shower products! A small fridge and ability to keep some ice in the room would be a great improvement, although the restaurant gladly supplied ice for us when we asked. For the price, Los Arboles really delivers.

Room Tip: We were in room 110, not an expensive room, tucked away in the back away from street traffic and poo...

Jeff, thanks for your review and glad to hear you enjoyed your visit to our little hotel. We've got a handful of small refrigerators that we put in rooms upon guest request. On your next visit ask us about one at the time of reservation (either directly with us by phone in in the "Other Information" field of our online booking application) and we can have it in your room upon arrival. Thanks again for very nice review.

Gracias!

I celebrated my 40th birthday with family and friends at Los Arboles. Russell, Andrew, and the entire staff couldn't have more accommodating. Every detail was executed to perfection. The buffet dinner catered by the adjoining restaurant, El Mirasol was outstanding. The grounds throughout the hotel were immaculate. Best of all was the friendly service. Russell and Andrew treat you like a family member. You will not be disappointed! Thanks to everyone at Los Arboles for making this one of the highlights of my life!

I was here last weekend and we had a great time. The location is great and you can walk to the Uptown Design District or the downtown area too. The staff was great and the room was very nice. The restaurant in the hotel is great. Amazing margaritas and food! I would go back any day!

Room Tip: We had room 112 and it was great. Very quite!
