Arrived to cool drinks and a very warm welcome from Lucy, and it just got better from there. The rooms were clean and comfortable. Many free amenities like bikes, movies, use of a fully equipped kitchen, and 24/7 pool access made it feel like visiting close friends, not a hotel. The courtyard with its fountain, fireplace, pools, and greenery was a perfect setting for sharing quiet moments or meeting new friends. The only con was traffic noise in the late evenings, as the hotel was along a main road. On the plus side, the hotel was on the non-windy side of Palm Springs. The only thing that could have made the stay better is to have that old familiar Eagles song greet us at the gates. Otherwise the ambiance and our stay was perfect.

My husband and I were first-time guests at Hotel California last week. There are not enough superlatives to describe this beautiful little boutique hotel, our expansive suite, the staff, the limo service or Lucy, the little dynamo who manages the hotel. Before our departure, we made reservations for next year to guarantee "our suite" will be available for more fun, relaxation and making more wonderful memories.

Room Tip: We loved our King Suite on the second floor. Very roomy with 2 bathrooms, large living room and large separate bedroom. Very private and quiet.

We chose this place based on a great price (compared to other hotels in Palm Springs) and the positive reviews we saw online. It was even better than what we'd expected - lovely staff who greeted us with a smile and offered us cold drinks while we waited, unexpected free treats in our beautiful room, a cozy "Palm Springs" atmosphere with a small porch area outside our room, a firepit in the outside common area, misters keeping things cool near the clean (small) pool, and a huge selection of classic and new-release DVDs to choose from to bring back to our room. Great recommendation from staff to have breakfast at a retro-architecture, farm-to-table restaurant across the street called King's Canyon (I think, something like that). But it was fabulous. We'll stay again for sure!

Room Tip: We noticed a few rooms on a 2nd-level overlooking the pool that would have been fun to stay in. But our room near the back gate on the 1st level was fine.

My wife and I recently spent four nights, celebrating our 32nd. I just can't say enough about how comfortable and pampered we felt because of the stellar staff. All of the staff, most notably Larry, Jay, & Lucy, were always at sensitive and proactive to your every need. We had a terrific stay and MOST ASSUREDLY will be back. It was just terrific.

After mistakenly making the wrong reservation date @ the Desert Riviera, Patty & Jay couldn't have been nicer! They immediately offered me a glass of wine & my husband a cold beer. Patty quickly assessed the situation & offered us a room @ the Hotel California (a sister property up the street). She kept the rate the same & we had a lovely spacious room w/ 2 baths & a large sitting area w/ a kitchenette. Everyone we met wanted to make our stay perfect. This is a little gem that caters to its customers.
