“total enjoyment at East Canyon”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

I have to say that Richard and his staff do an amazing job making you feel right at home. Our stay at the East Canyon resort was for 7 great days. We had a great room and did several day trips, even one to the coast. We would go back and stay again in Palm Springs and would only go back the East Canyon. From a casual breakfast to cocktails before dinner pool side we loved every minute of our stay. They are not a clothing optional hotel which worked for us.
The staff recommended places to eat, visit and would make the reservation for us priot to our arrival. We met some great people pool side and had dinner with them a few nights. It's a great place relax, unwind and get a total spa treatment. Both my partner and I did a few spa treatments and enjoyed those as well. We will be back and hopefully soon Richard.

Room Tip: we stayed on the second floor in a suite and it was large enough to not feel cramped.

My partner & I stayed at East Canyon for one night in August. Unlike so many other of the gay hotels, I appreciated that they didn't require a two night minimum stay. Trying to get to Palm Springs from L.A on a Friday night due to traffic is senseless so we usually opt to stay one night. This was our first time at East Canyon & after several bad experiences at other gay hotels we were a bit skeptical. We found the hotel to be simple yet elegant. They are not a clothing optional hotel which worked for us. The owners and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is smaller than most we've stayed at but did not feel crowded, which was probably due to so few other guests that weekend.The grounds were well maintained, everything felt fresh & new. The pool and jacuzzi were immaculate. The rooms were clean, large and modern. The linens and mattress were very comfortable & luxurious. We were welcomed with a plate of cookies and a warm welcoming note in our room as well as cocktails in the evening. The breakfast was standard but good. My only critique would be that the shower could use some updating. Overall, our stay was fantastic. We appreciated the attention to the small details which made a difference. We definitely plan on visiting again soon.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms to the north are darker which I found better for sleeping.

Having been to Palm Springs before, we knew where we didn't want to stay but had no idea of just what might suit us. Exploring options on the internet we settled on the East Canyon and it proved to be a perfect fit. The room was lovely, the public areas immaculately maintained, and the staff is friendly and eager to please. The location couldn't be better, just far enough out of the downtown to give it a residential feel, yet close enough to be less than 10 minutes of just about everyplace we wanted to go. We will definately go back the next time we're in Palm Springs.

We had a great trip to the desert thanks to East Canyon Hotel and Spa! My husband and I went to take a much needed breather from our lives in Los Angeles, and East Canyon was the perfect place. This was our first time at East Canyon, and it more than met our expectations. The grounds and rooms were clean and welcoming. With only 15 hotel rooms, it was the perfect boutique hotel to keep our stress level at a minimum. We made use of the spa services with a steam sauna, full body massage, and complete facial. What a way to begin our stay! The hotel serves a nice daily continental breakfast and afternoon cocktails by the pool. Richard (the owner/operator) is a class act and provides a great experience to his hotel guests. We felt completely at ease and welcome with all the hotel staff. We had such a great time, we booked our next visit before we checked out! East Canyon Hotel and Spa is a new gem in Palm Springs!

Room Tip: The Grand Suite has a very nice jacuzzi bathtub. It's the only room that does.

Wonderful and secluded spot to chill out at in Palm Springs.
The rooms are super comfy and well appointed. Good sheets, spacious beds and very clean.
There are not many rooms (about 20) and the feeling is laid back and casual.
Breakfast is provided in a family room setting and the staff/and owner are usually present and always cheerful and accommodating.
Totally recommended for a getaway!

Room Tip: I suggest the junior suite.

Had a personal trip to East Canyon to use the Spa and be massaged. Per usual it was a great visit. I highly recommend the new massage therapist Brian.
The beds are the most comfortable of all the beds I have tried in my travels.

This was our second time at East Canyon and it was just as enjoyable and perfect as the last. Unpretentious and relaxing environment. Rooms are clean and well appointed. There were complete days spend by the pool. And the complimentary drink coupons were a nice touch too. The staff is very friendly and the owner, Richard is welcoming and friendly!
