Made my reservation online, unfortunately my plans changed. I cancelled my reservation a month in advance and was charged a $60 processing fee. Are you kidding me? I will never stay here and strongly recommend anyone who would considers this hotel, take your business to a place that values you as a customer.

We had come here first many years ago, the charm had us sold. When we came back we could hardly believe how desperately in need of an overall the room needed. The old cabinetry was in very bad shape, just about everything felt dingy worn and ready to go. It looks its best at night outside, the restaurant glows and... More

This is by far the sweetest place out of 4 that I have stayed in the Palm Springs area. The pool has the best views of the San Jacinto Mountain range, or stars and palm trees over tile rooftops. And the complimentary breakfasts area gentle, familial way to start each day with few decisions The property is across East Palm... More

The Villa Royale is centrally located in Palm Springs and a gem-of-a-compound, completely walled off with fantastic caring staff. This is the original property and home of Sonja Henie, the former three time Olympic Figure Skating Champion! Thirty-one private rooms -- two pools and a fantastic old-school restaurant. The General Manager, Chris, took care of all our needs, and seemed... More

8f you want to stay in a quite, unique boutique hotel, this is a must. It's old Palm Springs at its best . Also, eat at the restaurant. Wow, what a meal, drinks and a harp player is one of a kind. Love thus place but it's not eating. It is dining. ..enjoy.

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful hotel last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The two pools are as refreshing as they are scenic, being surrounded by nice plantings and comfortable patios. The room was clean and the unique decorations gave it character above the normal corporate places. Restaurant is pretty and the breakfast was tasty. The staff that... More

This place has a lot of charm and the only thing I can say that needs improvement would be a bathroom upgrade, specifically the tub/shower, AC units are noisy, wifi not amazing but acceptable. Basically a few upgrades of this sort would bring this place to a perfect boutique hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Lemonade and fresh warm... More

We spent 4 nights here during March with temperatures approaching the 90's. Our room was adjacent to a small swimming pool with an enclosed courtyard. It was small but functional with a flat screen TV with cable (no CNBC), a small ice box and a small private patio with lounge chairs added to our comfort level, the mountain view looking... More
