This was our first trip to Palm Springs, and we just needed to get some sunshine and warmth. We decided to try La Maison, a small hotel, because we thought it would be quiet . . . but we had no idea what we were getting into. Ahhhhhh, from the opening of the locked gate door and meeting our hostess, Cornelia, we felt comfortable and at home. She was welcoming and gracious, and introduced us to her husband, Richard, and housekeeper, Blanca, on the way to showing us to our room. En route, Cornelia showed us the amenities including the pool and hot tub.
We had arrived starving and tired. Our hosts suggested a couple of restaurants just across the street in a shopping mall, and we had a very satisfying lunch. This mall became a familiar place to us because it hosts banks, restaurants, grocery shopping. We asked our hosts for suggestions from shopping, hiking, and eating and they always were helpful.
Beer and wine is offered daily from the outside kitchen, after 3:00 pm. Cornelia often puts on some popcorn, or offers potato chips. In the morning, continental breakfast and coffee is served from the outside kitchen, and I must say that Richard makes a great cappuccino!
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The beds are great and the sheets are wonderful! We loved that each room has easy access to the pool which is the center of the grounds. The pool area is surrounded by beautiful gardens, and has comfortable lounges and clean towels daily. The pool is great, and just the right temperature!
We needed a break, and we got what we needed . . . we will be back! Thank you, Cornelia and Richard
