My wife and I stayed at the Hotel California for 3 days in March 2013. After attending a business conference in San Diego we wanted to explore the canyons and desert area around Palm Springs and Joshua Tree park.
The hotel was ideally situated for this, and very reasonably priced. We really liked the casual and cozy atmosphere at the hotel, the staff was great - friendly but not intrusive. Amenities that we really enjoyed were: the fire pit for breakfast on a chilly morning, close to some nice restaurants so we could walk for meals out, the communal kitchen with basic supplies and free snack fruit and a fridge.
My wife is an avid swimmer, and she loved the pool (nice and warm) and we both enjoyed the hot tub in the evening. We spent the day hiking in the canyon, so the hot tub was especially welcome after an active day. The hotel was quiet, the rooms immaculately clean.
This is a delightful small boutique hotel that I would absolutely recommend to any couple visiting the Palm Springs area. When we go back to this area again on holiday, it's on our 'must stay here' list.
