This was my first trip to Palm Springs and I was trying to decide if I wanted quiet luxury or large hotel amenities. I went with quiet luxury and am glad I did.
The hotel is in a great location in Palm Springs. You can walk everywhere in town, so you don't use your car very much. The breakfast was delicious and the appetizers were something we never missed. They serve wine with the appetizers and actually pretty good wine, but they don't share what wines they are pouring unless you ask. I think this is a miss with the clientele that stays at this hotel. People would appreciate that the wine isn't coming out of a jug or box!
My husband and I are in our early 40s and were the youngest people staying at the hotel which was fine with us.
We stayed in the Loft room which was large and beautiful. My only issue was there was a clawfoot tub with a hand shower but no where to mount it on the wall. So we had to sit in the tub to shower.
We would defintely stay here again and would recommend it to others but likely not in the Loft room due to the shower!
