My wife and I needed a place to stay in Palm Springs for a wedding we were attending. We have two kids under 4 and it was our first adults-only weekend in almost 2 years. We were recommended to POSH by friends of ours who stayed when it was run by the former owners. They liked it then but based on what I've read in previous reviews, I think POSH has become much better under Tony and Santo's ("T&S") stewardship. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for an adults only, romantic getaway.
Customer service was excellent. We were juggling work schedules, handing kids off to grandparents and making the trip from Los Angeles on a Friday evening. T&S responded to all my preliminary emails and were fantastic about welcoming us to the property around 11 p.m. on Friday night. They even allowed us to plug in our Chevy Volt outside using our extension cord and a plug on the property. Throughout the weekend T&S only reinforced their obvious commitment to POSH with top-notch service, whether in preparing the complimentary breakfasts (delicious), giving recommendations on where to go to get the car washed or in helping us out with some plastic bags on the departure date so we could put some of our take-home food on ice for the ride back. Unfortunately we missed the complimentary cocktail hour so we'll have to catch that on another visit. I hope T&S are as good at mixology as they are at cooking food!
The property itself is charming. It's an older building so it has a lot of character. The decor is retro and tasteful and, the property is private and QUIET! The buildings are in a "U" shape with the rooms and suites all facing the pool and spa area. At night there's a beautiful blue glow of accent lighting encircling the common area. The al fresco dining area is quaint, with bistro seating and a covered porch with ceiling fans for the hot days. there are complimentary magazines and newspapers. We were there the weekend of 2/21-2/23/14 and the weather was perfect. Didn't use the pool but it looked inviting. We did use the spa and it was great. Nice and clean.
We stayed in Suite 6 which is at the back of the property just off the spa and seems even more secluded than many of the standard rooms. The fact that the spa was right outside the door wasn't an issue for noise and I highly recommend this suite if you're looking for privacy. Suite 6 has a large king bed, sitting area and a full kitchen! Linens, towels, robes and mattress are high quality and there is plenty of closet space. The room was clean and well decorated. There was even a neat plug adapter with USB ports for phones on the nightstand. If there's a downside it's that the bathroom is small and there's only a single pedestal sink but really, that's a nitpick not a flaw and it didn't detract from our enjoyment of the property one bit. Complementary wifi was easy to hook up to and we didn't have any problems with the connection.
POSH is not a place for families and it's not a resort so guests need to govern their expectations. POSH is an intimate B&B environment for relaxing and getting away from day-to-day doldrums. Downtown Palm Springs is just a minute or two away if you want to sightsee and the property is on a side street right off a main thoroughfare.
Thanks again to T&S for a great weekend. Looking forward to staying with you again.
