This senior couple found The Hideaway while looking for a moderately priced place in Palm Springs. We could not have been any happier with our choice. Clean, spacious, quiet, and most comfortable to stay. An easy walk to the main street of Palm Springs, even if that street was a bit disappointing. However, The Hideaway was a solid and attractive place to stay. Highly recommended!

My girlfriend and I stayed here 4 nights during our visit to Modernism Week. The location was perfect---good street parking and within walking distance to the commercial area of downtown Palm Springs. The property has a lovely pool and is extremely quiet. Landscape is well maintained. It is a designated historic property. We had a large suite corner/end room (#111) with ample space, and it included a small kitchenette, of which we used only the refrigerator. Bed; excellent; linens and towels: good.. The bathroom is in need of updating. Mirrors are a bit rusty, sink and counter extremely low, step down shower with an opening that is narrow; shower space is small. It was fine for us ... we are short and tiny, but it wouldn't work for either of our husbands who are tall and around 225 pounds. I could not bring my husband to this hotel and have him be comfortable in the bathroom Know there is no staff on property, however communication via text messaging is excellent. Also, know that there is no restaurant or even a cafe on property. This, in my opinion, is a big negative. Yes, there is a small pod coffee machine and a couple of granola bars. But, if you want a good cup of coffee (or coffee drink) and something more than a granola bar, you must leave the property and go into town. We did not want to purchase groceries and make our breakfast before heading out, usually by 7:30 AM to make our first tours. Accommodation prices are high in Palm Springs this time of year, and substantially higher during the Modernism event. Our total bill for 4 nights was $ 1750.52. Compared to other accommodations nearby this was the least expensive of what I priced. But, for over $ 430. per night I would have expected an updated bathroom and at least a cafe on the property. We did know about the lack of a dining area before we booked, but having been to PS before, I knew where we could get a good coffee and a light breakfast, such as at Koffi or Starbucks. But, also know that breakfast restaurants do not typically open until 8 am, so if you have a 8 am or 8:30 appointment, you are limited to coffee cafes, unless, of course you want to stock the kitchen in your unit (if your unit has a kitchen ... not certain if they all do.) This property is good for some, but know its limitations.

Response from Dave Dean, Owner at The Hideaway

Thank you, Nancy, for your feedback as it appears everything we could reasonably control was to your upmost satisfaction. Although you were in town for Modernism Week and recognized The Hideaway is a designated Class 1 Historic Site, you seemed to have missed that the bathroom in your room is original from 1947, lovingly restored and preserved as part of the presentation that garnered our hard-earned recognition as a Historic Site. It’s one of the many features that makes The Hideaway a truly unique experience. As Don Draper so eloquently coined when describing the essence of nostalgia, “It’s a time capsule, not a spaceship.” We have a walkability score of 100 out of 100 on most booking sites, including the highest concentration of restaurants and cafes in Palm Springs within two blocks. You also had a kitchenette in your room with a stove, refrigerator, and coffee maker with unlimited free Peet’s coffee. By your own admission, you went for your least expensive option when booking for your visit and knew in advance we did not have a restaurant... then you knock down our rating because we don’t have a restaurant like the hotels that were charging double or triple our reasonable rates during Modernism Week. Perhaps your limitations are what you should be considering, not ours.

A really lovely place to stay. Nice quiet atmosphere and all the other guests were so friendly. The room was nice and very well styled. Also well equipped ie breakfast cereal bars and tea and coffee etc. Pool towels also provided. A stunning location facing the mountains and centrally located to walk to restaurants.

If you're looking for delightful peace and quiet in the perfect downtown setting of Palm Springs, this is your place. We stayed two nights at the Hideaway and I'm so glad we did. The location was ideal-- on a quiet street a couple of short blocks to the downtown area. We loved the policy of no cell phones or music (without ear plugs) at the pool area, as it gave the property a homey, private feel--- kind of like staying in your own apartment rather than at a noisy hotel. The views of the mountain from our private patio were spectacular and we often sat outside enjoying wine and coffee in the incredibly comfy chairs. The hotel has a history and was designed by a well known architect for whom our room was named. Because we love the mid-century, historic Hollywood vibe of Palm Springs, this little place couldn't have been a better fit for us. We will definitely be back for a longer stay. Thank you, Hideaway, for offering us the perfect accommodations in Palm Springs.

Met a couple (fellow guests at the Palms at Indian Head in Borrego Springs, another mid-century winner) who strongly recommended a stay here. Luckily two nights were available in Dino's Den, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Walking distance to Palm Canyon Drive, but far enough off to feel like a neighborhood.

Was able to book a weekend here at the last minute. I was lucky...must have been a cancellation. Such a serene place right out of the original '50s. Stunning views with the the mountains almost close enough to touch. Everything was very clean if dated. Nice to have kitchen availabilities. Heard it was for sale. Hope it doesn't change like so many other places have. Would stay again.

We were expecting a tad more from the photos. We have stayed many places in Palm Springs, and this falls into the modest rehab of vintage property with worn kitsch furniture to complete the vibe. It seems all small hotels have given up on having on-premises staff to cut costs and use self-attended check-in. That trend is a shame. The property is very clean including the pool. The house cleaning staff are delightful. They were always friendly and helpful whenever you asked for anything. They were there most of the day and are essentially the only staff immediately available. It is centrally located and kept very quiet. Guests seemed mindful of not speaking loudly or using cell phones in the pool area. There is a small kitchen in the compound but no breakfast or coffee and tea available in the morning. They place Keurig pod machines in the rooms along with two bottles of water. There is the large Starbucks a block away which we used every morning instead. The bathrooms are all original 50's tiled affairs, so there is very little space to turn around or squeeze into the shower. If you like comfortable bathrooms look elsewhere. The rooms are quite varied in size. The queens seen to be the smallest. I took a peek at some of the larger ones and they seemed much nicer with a seating area, more glass and larger bathrooms. I might swing for one of those suites if I was returning. It is economical for Palm Springs hotel prices, so might be good for those on a budget.

I have stayed at a bunch of places in Palm Springs and The Hideaway has become one of my favorites. I enjoy how it is a small boutique hotel with only 10 rooms, and adults only. It was very easy to relax without huge groups at the pool. The rooms are updated and very clean, but still have great midcentury modern charm and character that you expect from Palm Springs. Lastly, the location is perfect. Close enough to walk to downtown, but far enough that it feels secluded. As noted in other reviews, it is a self check-in system with no front desk, but we did not mind that at all. We loved our stay and can't wait to visit again!

The Hideaway was the perfect fit for my boyfriend and I! It was in a perfect location, very close to downtown, we were able to walk to dinner every night. The room was so clean, and the bed was so comfortable. The pool felt great and the grounds were wonderful. We are coming back to the hideaway as soon as possible!!!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights at the end of March. We've stayed at larger hotels in the area in the past and the Hideaway is our new fave. We loved the small scale of the property and the 2 people per room / no pets / no children policy as well as the mid-century vibe. The location was spectacular, just a few blocks off the main strip but far enough away that it was peaceful and quiet. Rooms have been updated but are not super "new," so if that matters to you, be aware. We brought a small cooler with us, which came in handy poolside. The hotel is in walking distance of the Museum Trail / North Lykken Trail, which was pretty strenuous but doable once the sun was behind the mountains (we saw some bighorn sheep!). The only downside of our visit, which I assume is temporary, is that the pool was not heated as advertised. My husband dove in anyway but there was no way I could do so given how cold it was.
