A Place in the Sun Garden Hotel
Ranked #6 of 20 Palm Springs B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 14, 2007

When I stay at A Place in the Sun I feel like a pampered movie star from the old days in my quiet bungalow with the retro decor, a desert breeze wafting through the palms and flowers. I can take a nature walk toward the mountains or head for downtown Palm Springs, take a dip in the pool and jacuzzi (salt, not chlorine), and enjoy the weekend brunches. These hosts really know how to treat their guests!

A warm, charming, small hotel with cottages that surround a peaceful and perfectly groomed garden, pool and spa. We had a lovely two night stay with our dog in one of the bungalow cottages. Our #8 cottage front door opened to a spectacular view of the mountains and our back patio and small yard backed up to a tiny church that rang soft chimes every so often. Our time by the pool was peaceful and pleasant -- the other guests were quiet and friendly. A nice spot that deserves a longer stay. We will go back....

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time at A Place in the Sun this past January. We were there during the "cold snap", but we still did a little swimming in the pool and soaking in the hot tub, and enjoyed the refreshing daytime temperatures for some hiking around the hills near town. Our unit was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. In short, everything was just as we were told it would be. We enjoyed the quiet surroundings, the pretty flowers, and the breakfasts - especially on the weekend, when it was "all you can eat". Our visit was very enjoyable and we loved Palm Springs! The only thing we would have changed if we could was the temperature - we scraped ice off our windshield the last morning we were there, but the day that followed was pleasant and sunny, with blue, blue skies.

Hospitality plus! Friendly, helpful hosts; other guests were considerate and nice, too. The continental breakfast was plentiful and had wide variety of Danish, muffins, fresh fruit, cereal--everything we like!

Sparkling pool at a perfect temperature for some short laps, then just a few steps through the (somewhat) chilly air into the hot tub. Great start for the day.

5 stars for cleanliness.

And our kitty had a good time, too! (See photo of his daily walk)

Just returned from a lovely couple of days out in Palm Springs. A delightful and corteous welcome which started us off on the right foot. Lovely cottages surrounding an inviting pool. Quiet and respectful residences. Breakfast by the pool in the mornings between 8 and 10 was a great gesture. Excited to have been part of old Hollywood folklore! Will return soon for sure. Will be recommending this place in the sun to all my friends. x

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at this lovely hotel. It is set in beautiful gardens with pool and heated jacuzzi. We stayed in a standard studio which was perfectly adequate with a king size comfortable bed, T.V. etc. All rooms are located around the pool and the hotel is in a very quiet location.
Norma and Ron made us feel very welcome and were very helpful with their local knowledge and information about the surrounding area.
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in Palm Springs.
