“Quiet yet convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the San Giuliano for one night, just to give it a try. We have stayed in many hotels in the Palm Springs area over the past ten years. It probably was only half-occupied that night, but the quiet and peaceful ambiance was palpable. We enjoyed walking to dinner that evening and around the neighborhood the next morning. We look forward to coming back for a longer stay this winter.

We stayed at the San Giuliano for three nights in November and would thoroughly recommend the hotel. We chose the hotel partly after consulting Tripadviser and were not disappointed.
We were greeted by Eric who was charming and had even phoned us earlier in the day to check we were not having any trouble getting there. He was very helpful and informative.
Our hacienda was the Ranch Hacienda number 7. We had our own gated entrance, garden with loungers, table and chairs and a whirl-pool. There is also a communal garden with a swimming pool which we could use.
The hacienda itself was very spacious and beautifully decorated with a huge (very high) bed, bathroom with a shower and separate bath and a second sink. We had a fridge, microwave and even popcorn provided.
All in all, we can not recommend this lovely boutique hotel highly enough and look forward to staying there again some day.
Breakfast is not included, but the hotel is two blocks from the main strip with all the restaurants and Ruby’s Diner only five minutes walk away is great. There are so many restaurants to choose from we needed longer but LuLu’s Californian Bistro was great, as was Babe’s a bit further out at Cathedral City.

Room Tip: I think the ranch hacienda is great.

If you want to relax and walk to fine dining, this is the place for you. Our week long stay was superb. Eric was ready to help, friendly, but not intrusive. The pool and hot tubs are unbeatable. One of our most relaxing and peaceful stays ever.

I must say that this hotel is the absolutely best hotel I have ever stayed at. The staff was kind and attentive and made my stay absolutely wonderful. Caesar is excellent and went above and beyond with his staff to make our stay comfortable including our dog.

We tried San Giuliano for the first time and we were not disappointed. The room was lovely and clean. We enjoyed our private jacuzzi as well as the pool. Our unit had the original old bathroom and the tile was beautiful. We were close to restaurants and golf, but far from the noise and crowds. Caesar and Eric were helpful as we quickly checked in and out. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Hacienda was terrific.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the San Guiliano for the second time, and it was everything we remembered and more. A short walk from the main center of Palm Springs with its dozens of fabulous restaurants and shops, it is quiet and peaceful. A luxurious, secluded hideaway with all the perks of a 5-star hotel plus lots of privacy and comforts. We have stayed in 2 different rooms here and took a peek at a third this time - we would choose any again. All come with private outdoor patios and a jacuzzis spa, which was heavenly. We stayed in the Kasbah and had a lovely outdoor living room that was under a patio cover with a ceiling fan. The large bathroom also included jacuzzi tub and large shower. All rooms are tastefully decorated with original local artwork, and the king bed was very comfortable. In room fridge, microwave, blender and coffee maker are also convenient. The staff is great and the SG ranks as our all time favorite romantic getaway spot – we definitely will be back again soon.

Room Tip: Call to ask about the rooms as each one is different with unique features.

We booked the San Giuliano for 2 nights as our mid-point stop off for some rest and relaxation on our 2000 mile road trip. I received a call from Eric the day before we arrived double checking and confirming our reservation which was a nice touch, as the hotel team only operate from a small room at the front and do not stay on site. It therefore offered us comfort knowing we had spoken and they were expecting us. We got there around 5pm and were welcomed by Caesar and shown around. The pool area is well manicured and relaxing with fountains and bougainvillea (look out for hummingbirds), there is an ambient communal seating area and to the left of this you can find the ice machine, and also fresh batches of lemon water made up each day for guests.
We had booked the Ranch Hacienda...wow what a choice! You enter the room through a gate by the steps to the pool and step into your own private garden with grass, sun loungers, outdoor seating area and the piece de resistance...a private hot tub! We went through to the bedroom and could not believe the size of the bed...i am 5"7 and no lie the height of the bed came up past my waist and was so comfortable it is ridiculous...fantastic! The Ranch Hacienda is the only one of the accommodations that still has the original art deco mosaic bathroom, which was so cool as it transported us back in time to the Hollywood glamour days.
Location wise it was fantastic. There are some great restaurants within walking distance and downtown is just a few minutes away by foot, however if you fancy travelling further afield there is a taxi rank just outside Lu-Lu’s restaurant which is on the corner of the crossroads at the end of W.Arenas where San Giuliano is located.
I cannot rave about this place enough! When we checked out we were told we were more than welcome to chill out by the pool if we still fancied hanging around....but unfortunately I had a very long drive ahead of me, and was truly gutted to not be able to take them up on this offer.
In short this place is amazing! The San Giuliano team show so much pride and enthusiasm when talking about the history of the hotel and when showing you around, that it is hard not to fall in love with this place. We certainly did and will definitely be back.
