“excellent suite, good breakfast, near freeway”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

We wanted a place to stay overnight in Palm Desert for a family of five with breakfast included. Homewood was perfect with a spacious clean suite and a good breakfast. The appliances were nice, kitchen big enough to actually cook in if we needed to, having a separate bedroom was a bonus. Wifi worked well. Have a flatscreen in each room was also great.

We were welcomed at the front desk and acknowledged as Hiltonhhonors gold members.
The room was spacious and very clean and the bed quite comfortable.
The nightly reception was enjoyable -- good food and a decent selection of beer and wine.
Breakfast was great too -- nice variety of different breakfast type foods and fruit.
Enjoyed the hot tub -- the pool was a little too cool, could of used about 10 more degrees to be comfortable -- although probably refreshing in the summer months.
Very friendly staff -- would stay here again

This was one of the best hotel stays we have ever experienced. The hotel itself was warm and welcoming from the front lobby to the dining room which were separated by a huge fireplace. The staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Our suite was perfect; like a home away from home. The complementary daily breakfasts were delightful as were the light evening meals and drinks prepared Monday to Thursday. We will definitely stay at a Homewood Suites hotel again and highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Our suite was on the ground floor, which was perfect for taking the dog out for walks.

We arrived a day early for our two-month rental, so stayed overnight at the Palm Desert Homewood Suites. We had stayed at their Salt Lake City hotel and were so impressed we always look for HS when traveling. This hotel was just as good as we remember. The front desk person was friendly and helpful, the room was great. We had our dog with us, for which we paid an additional $75, but figured part of that was offset by the FREE dinner (including wine and beer), and the full breakfast buffet in the morning, both of which were surprisingly good. (This is a once-a-week event -- we just happened to hit it on the right day).

The unit was very nice and beautifully decorated. It was small, but so nice to have the separate bedroom so one could stay up later than the other if we wanted. The bed was extremely comfortable. The wi-fi worked, the TV worked ... we have absolutely no complaints. In fact, we would consider this for a long-term stay in the future, since we could fix some meals in.

I really enjoyed the homewood suites(I was really amazed that they have the fully equiped kitchen w/a microwave!) large & roomy, spotless clean, the palm desert location was so busy & close to shopping & golf clubs. The management staff extremely professional & helpful, all the employees did their job & more. Chad does a great job ! The assistant manager paul, fantastic,
very helpful with groups, business stays etc. this was like an apartment with the full maid service. They even offer complimentary breakfast that taste good & saves time when your on an appointment. I would definitely stay here again & I would let my friends know.

Room Tip: 3rd floor overlooking pool is nice

Started the new year with a Get-a-way in Palm Desert. I have never been in the Palm Springs area even though I have lived in California all my life! We are HHonors members so I reserved the Homewood Suites for 3 nights. Upon arrival we waited several minutes regarding another customer and the front desk person. The customer realized we were waiting long and suggested to the front desk person to go ahead and check us in. She said no and then went back into the office area to get some information. After we were finally checked in, our room was great! We checked in on New Year's Day and they did not have the usual complimentary meal and drinks because it was a holiday. We were kind of disappointed but we did find a great hamburger place called Grill-a-Burger which was opened on New Year's Day!
Pro: Clean hotel, great hot tub, great room, great complimentary meals and drinks the last two days of our trip. (We had chicken cordon bleu one night!)
Cons: Check in service, one day we arrived back at the hotel at 3:30 pm and our room was not made up yet!, limited breakfast selections
Overall an average stay!

A solid, functional, unspectacular but nonetheless pleasant place to stay. Staff is very responsive and helpful. Breakfast is fine, albeit limited in selection. There's a nice park right next door if you need a place for the kids to expend some energy.
