I'm taking my husband to Palm Springs for his 40th birthday and we have reservations at The Viceroy. After reading the very mixed reviews on this hotel, I am nervous. They swing from - "amazing, we can't wait to go back, had a wonderful time"... to "they must pay people to write anything positive about this hotel.. DO NOT STAY HERE." Pretty forboding... But wondering if the negative reviews are from folks who are not used to the boutique hotel experience. Can anyone out there clear this up for me? Should I cancel at The Viceroy and run for the Parker? Right now I feel like I'm taking a big risk and of course want the weekend to be really special.
Thanks in advance for your advice.
