Had a great time in Palm Springs over the holiday. POSH was great! Fantastic breakfasts, clean comfortable rooms and great hosts! We really enjoyed meeting new people by the fire pit during happy hour! We had blast, we'll be back.

Room Tip: We took the bigger room it had a kitchenette but we really didn't need it.. nice to have though..

Owners Tony & Santo were available and accommodating whenever we needed anything, attitude A+. They gave us extra blanket right away. Coffee in the room was excellent quality.

I would take out Posh flyer from welcome book. It says cocktail hour offers hearty appetizers and this was not the case.

Unfortunately, my friend left the room heater on all night. We both went home with sore throats and coughs. Cast iron furniture in the room is a hazard for such a small room. Both my friend and I hurt ourselves on the end the bed. I also hurt myself on chair. I realize new furniture is an extra expense for the hotel but wicker is a less expensive option and would match decor.

Would love to find out if any of the Posh rooms have a bathtub. As someone who had foot surgery a couple months before I appreciate a good soak.

Room Tip: Room nearest jacuzzi looks much bigger than the others but I am sure costs more to stay the weekend than the average room.

We just returned home to San Diego after spending a totally delightful stay at POSH Palm Springs! It turns out that the Inn has just changed hands. We were greeted, and hosted fabulously, by the new owners, Tony and Santo. They clearly are well suited for their new role as Inn Keepers (coming from other professional backgrounds) and are truly gracious hosts. In no time, we simply felt that this was our new "home away from home".

We have been enjoying get-aways in Palm Springs for 25 years, and have stayed in most of the major resorts plus one other small B&B with a similar MO to POSH. Hands down, this little Inn is our new "fav"!

Our room, while small, was clean and bright, and the decor lovely. It offered everything we needed, including a table and chairs, a bar sink and refrigerator plus free water and snacks. The shower was great shower and the bath towels sumptuous. Of course, the room was poolside, as there are only 10 rooms total, and the welcoming spa was clean and relaxing.

The breakfasts were truly gourmet! Chef Tony created some beautiful dishes. In the 4 days we were there we enjoyed soufflés -- both southwestern and french toast style -- plus homemade fresh blueberry pancakes that were to-die-for and an italian strata, too. The bacon and sausage accompaniments were great, as were the starters. We were offered a variety of juices plus each day we were served either fresh fruit, fruit and yogurt parfait or a fruit smoothie. Each breakfast also included a made-from-scratch mini-muffin. Then Happy Hour gatherings around the fire pit were a pleasure each evening -- where we were graciously offered wine, beer or their signature cocktail, plus nice snacks, too.

Were we just lucky, or does this place always attract such interesting, nice clientele? We enjoyed the social aspect of the experience during the communal times (breakfast and HH), while savoring the serene, peaceful get-away experience we were seeking. Also, we feel the location of POSH is great for enjoying nearby downtown Palm Springs, while being off the beaten path in a lovely residential setting.

Franchised resorts have their place, and we've enjoyed the best of them. But if you value the character and personalized experience that POSH has to offer, then book your stay and tell them "Barb and Larry sent us"!

This was our first stay at a B & B and it was a treat. Tony's breakfast presentation was excellent as well as being extra tasty. Our time at the Posh was brief (just two nights) but only because we had family at their timeshare in Palm Desert so we were not able to take full advantage of all of the amenities offered. We must come again!

Room Tip: If you need extra space in your room ask for the Posh King Suite (just one available).

This is our 4th stay at POSH. We liked it before, but new owners Tony and Santo have taken it to a new level. Things have been tweaked to make a good place great. The breakfast we had daily was amazing. I think Tony in another life was a gourmet chef. Happy hour drinks and treats were upped in quality from our previous visits. If you have stayed in the past, book again, you will be pleased. If a new customer, try it, you will be back.
