Desert Hills, tucked up against the rugged San Jacinto Mountains is one of Palm Springs classic boutique hotels. Built in 1956, Desert Hills is situated in the historic district a few blocks from the shops, galleries and restaurants in the heart of Tennis Club District of old Palm Springs. The "quiet luxury" of Desert Hills retains the essence of classic old Palm Springs with rooms and suites reminiscent of the 1950's mid-century modern design.

Wifi sucks and the place has no money invested as you can see the toilet even runs. Free wifi doesn't work even though we have the technology. Only clean once a week and denied us clean towels. We had to wash the ones we had in the tub. BETTER TO SPEND A COUPLE BUCKS AND GET
