Reviewed May 7, 2013

We stayed 4 days and loved every minute of this relaxing,small,charming hotel. There were bikes at our disposal, as well as free beer and red or white wine, every day after five o'clock. Richard and Cordelia , the most helpfull hosts even offered the guests a Mexican evening meal ! Don' worry about the traffic nearby, you won't be disturbed in the secluded,hideway little hotel.

All I can say is WOW! We spent two nights at La Maison to celebrate our 37th anniversary. We have stayed at many different hotels in Palm Springs over the years and love the small hotel atmosphere. This was by far the nicest of all! Richard and Cornelia are wonderful hosts and have created a beautiful atmosphere that makes their customers feel as welcome as guests in their home. It has the feel of a bed and breakfast and their attention to detail is amazing! The room was lovely, everything was clean and fresh, the continental breakfast was perfect! We are already looking forward to our next visit! These people really know what they are doing and they do it extremely well!

My wife and I just got back from our 3 day stay at LA Maison Palm Springs, when I booked Cornelia was very accommodating I asked if there would be a possibility of an early check in which didn’t seem to be a problem. We arrived Saturday morning and were able to check in nice and early which was so helpful to drop off the luggage and then go off to explore Palm Canyon. When we arrived Richard asked if we needed anything and made us feel very welcome.

We stayed in room 10 a queen room upstairs; it was very nice and had all what we needed for a pleasant relaxing stay. Richard was very helpful making coffees and asking if we needed any help or advice with anything for the area, he gave us two free tickets for the Palm Springs Museum which we used later on Saturday afternoon.

They put out beer and wine in the afternoon for guests, the pool area was a relaxing area with new outdoor furniture. We had a nice casual breakfast both mornings by the pool; bagels, homemade scones, oatmeal, fresh fruit and yoghurts were offered. LA Maison is a nice relaxing getaway for anyone, it is a little far out of Palm Springs to walk in but it only takes a couple of minutes to drive to the edge of town park and walk in. The surrounding neighborhood is well worth a walk around to explore all the nice homes.

Overall a very pleasant, relaxing stay at LA Masion Hotel, Richard and Cornelia are super hosts and are very friendly and helpful, they have taken an old dated hotel and turned it into a lovely inviting and relaxing hotel, we shall have no issues returning and would highly recommend the hotel to others.

My only suggestion is to install a small refrigerator in room 10 (not sure if they are in any other rooms) as that would be very handy and helpful.

Just spent two wonderful nights at La Maison and can not recommend this property highly enough. The innkeepers Richard and Cornelia are a remarkably charming and capable pair. The grounds are immaculate, the rooms clean and comfortable and the pool welcoming.
The lay out of the property is excellent with tables in the court yard and a breakfast bar area surrounded by flower beds and fountains.
Check in and check out were a breeze. There are plenty of lounge chairs around the sparkling pool with thirsty oversized towels are in amble supply. We have stayed at more than 10 different properties in Palm Springs and this is our favorite.
Parking is easy and despite near full occupancy, we never heard another guest after 5 pm. The property is superbly located with stores within walking distance and downtown 6 minutes away.

Room Tip: All the rooms are poolside.

I'm actually writing this review as we leave the hotel so it's fresh in my mind. This hotel is a quaint boutique property. My husband and I came for a weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary and it was just what we were hoping for. The hotel has a nice pool and hot tub and great lounge chairs. There is also a fire pit and plenty of patio furniture to enjoy a meal or glass of wine. The rooms were clean, no frills. I think the most impressive aspect of this hotel though are the owners. They are very hospitable and friendly. They put on a happy hour in the late afternoon and offer beer and make appetizers for all the guests. While you're lounging in the pool, they have a small kitchen that the guests have access to so we were able to use their cups and bowls for our own drinks and snacks. They also had a popcorn machine and lemon water available throughout the day for everyone to enjoy. I really felt like they went above and beyond to make everyone's stay fantastic.

Our 1st visit to Palm Springs was April 2012. I wrote a review on May 3rd 2012 called "Paradise in the Desert". We live in NYC & after this very cold winter which included Hurricane Sandy we decided we needed a vacation. Where else would we go but La Maison Hotel in Palm Springs. We thought the Villa was beautiful last year. To our surprise Richart & Cornelia have been little busy bees. They up graded with new pool chairs, umbrella's, outdoor furniture, room up grading and added a big beautiful fountain. You can now BBQ with the new large gas BBQ grill. Everything I wrote last year is still the same, charming, private, secluded & immaculate. Richard has a new cappuccino maker & has mastered the art. Our 2nd trip left us thinking trip #3. Iris & Joe

Room Tip: Get a room by the pool, we like #6 but any pool side room is great
