“A Gem in the Desert”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

During a recent solo business trip to Palm Springs, I decided to try a new place to stay, this brand new property, La Maison. Everything about this boutique hotel surpassed my expectations. The overall decor is exquisite, with a truly Mediterranean feel. I felt instantly transported to the south of France. The rooms each have a unique charm following a common theme which is very comfortable and inviting, perfectly appointed for a peaceful stay. After a hectic day of meetings, to return to this oasis and relax by the sparkling blue pool surrounded by lovely gardens was an incredible way to erase the stress of the day. I stayed in room #4, the Sunflower room on this particular visit. The owners, Cornelia and Richard, were so gracious and took care of everything for me. I can not wait to return in March to have a romantic stay in the Master suite #1.

After diligent research for an independent small Palm Springs hotel, I opted to stay at the new La Maison Hotel. Room 4 was the perfect respite for my solo travel, after a busy day at family wedding. The experienced and hospitable innkeepers, Cornelia and Richard, attend to guest's needs. Their property is clean, "French" delightful and has no exorbitant resort fees. The pool is sparkling and the patio with lovely foliage is relaxing. The location is convenient to local restaurants, services and movie theaters. The morning Continental breakfast was just right. Without hesitation, I have already recommended it to best friends. Thank you for a very pleasant stay!

Room Tip: Please ask Innkeepers for assistance, as their suggestion for my room was helpful.

We stayed at La Maison on a whim. We had decided to stop for one night in the middle of a car trip, and called around to some places we knew about. One innkeeper who was booked up suggested we try a newly-opened place he had just learned about, so we called. "We'd be dellighted to have you tonight," said Cornelia, "but we're just opening this coming weekend. You'd be our first guests." Well, we couldn't resist that invitation...
We learned that Cornelia and Richard Slosky own and operate an Inn in British Columbia, and they decided last year to find another place to run during the winter, when their Canadian operation would be shut for the season. They knew Palm Springs, having vacationed in the area for years, and when they saw the former Terrazzo property, they took the plunge. They have freshened the decor and are adding their own touches, including the lovely lavendar sachets on guest beds. Our stay was just delightful and we will surely stay again on our next drive through the desert!

My wife and I recently had the pleasure of trying out the newly-opened La Maison hotel in Palm Springs ([--] or [--]) and what a wonderful experience it was! A most welcome and unique exception to the seemingly endless rows of “boutique hotels” in that storied dessert city, La Maison delivers on its promise to evoke the south of France – a quiet, peaceful garden setting, tastefully appointed rooms, period furniture, and feather beds with down duvets. And wait until you taste the freshly-baked scones and croissants served with espresso – c’est magnifique!

We have stayed at the owners’ previous property – the much praised Sky Valley Inn on Saltspring Island in British Columbia (read the outstanding reviews!) – and Richard and Cornelia have brought the same brand of dedicated hospitality to their Palm Springs venture. Always attentive, yet never intrusive, their goal is to provide a restful, stress-free environment where you can unwind and indulge in your every pleasure.

Recently renovated and updated, centrally located and reasonably priced, La Maison offers excellent value and a truly grand holiday experience.
