Really subpar experience at this Kimpton, and I say this as a member, who has stayed at their hotels, happily, for years. Pros: staff is friendly and shower is good and despite COVID, the amenities were pretty good. But the cons: uncomfortable bed & pillows, really overpriced junior suite —big room but like a cave, facing north, got no light, and poorly designed, nowhere to unpack and the bathtub in the shower, like an afterthought. I got the standard email to pay more for a high floor, why?, there are only four floors. No one asked if I wanted to upgrade, which I would have after seeing our room, and the hotel was not at capacity. Pool blaring music that no one was enjoying, ridiculously overpriced loungers in worn shape. Older crowd, know your audience. And pool was packed, definitely not limited capacity so people could be safely distanced. Really a shame, especially since we booked for our anniversary, which no one did anything for, not a glass of wine, nothing, just a parting, “enjoy your anniversary,” at check in. It will be a very long time before I consider a stay at a Kimpton again.

I was lucky enough to be gifted a beautiful nights stay at the Kimpton PS for my birthday and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Our corner room was gorgeous with a wrap around balcony, spacious bathtub, comfortable bed, and a nice bottle of chilled bubbly delivered to us by a friendly staff member named Igor! Ashley at the front desk was extremely sweet and helpful too, thank you Ashley! I had such a fun and memorable time staying at the Kimpton and would recommend to anyone wanting to visit the heart of Palm Springs!

Location is great and right in the middle of downtown. The restaurant downstairs was excellent. Rooftop pool was relaxing, service was fabulous and food was very good. Overall a pleasant place to stay in the heart of Palm Springs.

Newer and nicer hotel! Had a corner room with balcony, city view. Room was very spacious and clean. Awesome location, near all the restaurants and shops. Went for a hike, museum trail loop is also nearby, walking distance....try to catch the sunrise! Gym had lots of equipment and a sanitizing station. No jacuzzi, but pool was heated. Definitely would stay here again!

We wanted to get away for my wife’s birthday so I paid to stay at what seemed to be a nice hotel so she could relax by the pool all day. When we got there the front desk told us that the pool would close at 3pm as they were having their 3rd birthday ,which really meant the staff were having a party as we realised the next day when we couldn’t get service all day as the bar staff were talking about being hungover and just congregated together all day. We were also surprised to walk up to the pool on the second day and see half of the seating area had on going construction. We left after the poor service and drilling. We then went down to the hotel “restaurant” where we had to queue to get served. The queue took thirty mins just to order a coffee. Other problems included, air conditioning didn’t work and the room wasn’t cleaned at all as they said we needed to ask for them to clean it bizarrely. We spoke to Ashley (the supervisor) nicely about these problems and all she did was give us a passive aggressive tone saying she couldn’t do anything to help. We then asked for the manger, Gilbert, to call us the next day and he didn’t. Awful experience from start to finish. AVOID.
