Reviewed April 11, 2014

This newly remodelled hotel is a trip back in time, with the orange and green color scheme and the big band music playing by the pool. The location is excellent, about one block from downtown. The breakfast was exceptional, and there were always snacks in the lobby. The pool and firepit were well maintained. The staff was friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

We loves the mid-century modern atmosphere, the tranquil pool, and the clean room. However, the service was great! Laura, the manager, even rushed to the airport to bring us a suit we had left in the closet. We really appreciated the staff and the experience!

My friend and I stayed in the Ocean's 11 suite just one night at the end of March. We were both blown away by all of small details; bikes for guests to use, mint ice tea & citrus water by the pool, every imaginable toiletry you could possibly need to an outfitted kitchenette with full size fridge and blender. We had stayed in a condo the 5 previous nights and we both said we wished we had stayed there the whole time! The location is outstanding and easily in walking distance to all of the downtown restaurants and shops. We fell in love in all of the mid-century character and can't wait to return for a much longer stay!

Room Tip: Ocean's 11 suite has the beds in two separate rooms, which worked great for my guy friend and I...

Took my husband to Palm Springs for his birthday and chose this cute boutique hotel, it was great in many ways. Close to downtown, used their bikes, LOVED the '40's music by the pool, watched classic movie by the fire pit under a full moon (just got lucky w/that) ..Very quaint and cozy, hope to stay again soon.

Perfect place to relax recharge and enjoy the nostalgia of Palm Springs! The pool area is beautiful. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Thoughtful extras like poolside ice tea, fresh fruit,
Lather bath products and bikes to cruise around town were the bees knees!

I'm a little afraid to post a good review - if more people find out about this place, it'll be even harder to get a room. The place was really perfect for us - loved the style, amazingly peaceful, great location. The pool was relaxing - pleasantly warm, no loud thumpy music (mostly the 40s channel played at a low volume - perfect), no kids and no cell phones poolside - makes for a truly peaceful afternoon in the sun. The firepit w/TV at night was nice, the free bikes were fun. The breakfast layout wasn't the fanciest, but was exactly how I like to start the day, and much less stressful (and cheaper) than having to go out for breakfast every day. I honestly can't think of one thing I'd want them to change. Great people too!
