Palm Canyon Resort & Spa
Ranked #59 of 74 Hotels in Palm Springs
Reviewed October 23, 2013

We had a very friendly greeting at the front desk and staff were most accommodating on our requests for top floor, view unit. The unit itself was large, well laid out, quiet, fairly well equipped and our query about why no wine glasses in the room was punctually dealt with. We liked the area, close enough to city centre and yet quiet and surrounded by beautiful hills.
We met with the “concierge” staff who greeted with us with gushing warmth and cordiality...until we made it plain that we were not the least interested in a time share presentation. We do understand their chief function is to initiate support for time share but, please, do not make it quite so evident by your attitude of constrained boredom when no time share potential is evident. It would have been nice to have concierge staff inform us of details of fitness room, pool and pool bar/cafe hours etc. The pool area is very nice and poolside cafe/bar had good food and beverages and pool area staff were very friendly.
About our unit: the room was dated. Furniture was tacky, worn and in need of update/cleaning, Carpet was stained in places, couch appears dirty. The shower curtain has been poorly installed and was loose. As a result the shower curtains slipped toward the middle allowing water to escape to the floor. This resulted in unattractive cracked and even missing grout at the base of tub. Future much more serious problems could accrue from this constant water exposure. On using the the kitchen sink garborator water soon flooded the under sink area and kitchen floor as the unit was rusted out. We appreciated that the front desk staff arranged for a quick repair while we were out. Management might want to consider hiring a new painting contractor as sloppy paint work in the bathroom greatly detracts from what might be an otherwise ok room.
The room was clean enough, especially after I cleaned the baseboards and shower stall shelf with a wet cloth. On our scheduled cleaning day our request for a early room cleaning was responded to cordially but on our return over 5 hours later no cleaning had been done. We were told a mistake had been made and staff were dispatched to clean the wrong room. The manager of housecleaning gave us a completely unexpected,, but much appreciated, $25 gift voucher. The cleaning staff were very pleasant and appeared most willing to do their best to accommodate us. On our return the room was adequately clean but small things like cleaning the soap dishes had been missed. A floating orchid I had left for my wife had been thrown out. Perhaps a bit more training is in order in some areas.
While we might not rush back or recommend this condo to friends, staff like Fernando, others on the front desk, Shelley at housekeeping and the pool area staff might make us reconsider as, because of them, our stay was mostly positive.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a mountain view. Beautiful!

we bought a groupon for two nights, and stayed this weekend. Customer service was good, but when we walked into our room, we were hit with the wall of grandma cig smoke - totally fowl.
Everytime we walked into our room, we gagged. It was so gross. Is smoking even allowed in those rooms??
Then upon immediately entering,we noticed that every cupboard in the entire place was open, including the microwave, really weird! The bathroom trashcan was on top of the toilet, and the TV remote had no working batteries in it.
Our view for our balcony was of the ugly parking lot/entry way/drive way, and then we noticed that our room was directly over the entrance to the parking garage!!! Every time a car went in and out, we could hear the tires hitting the group metal - sounded like distant gun shots.
The place in general is just super out-dated and run-down. The decor is pastel pink and blue, with horrible hotel artwork randomly placed.
The only plus about this place is the water slide at the pool, and that the pool is a good size.
I would probably not go back :(

Room Tip: make sure it's a room that hasn't been smoked in, and don't get one over the parking gar...

This is the first time I have had to write a bad review. Sorry Palm Canyon, but I didn't think I got a grest deal. First of all, they didn't find my booking for about 10 minutes. Then we got lost, because the room number postings (directional arrows) were wrong. We even had to help another couple. We had no toilet paper, no towels, the restroom floor still had dirty Qtips, and the coffee maker was filthy. By the way, there is no free wifi. However, they brought these items happily when I called the front desk. And when I was checking out, when the desk staff asked me if I had a good visit, I replied not really. She said ok, and gave me my receipt. That's it. If I hadn't spoken up, she would have never asked me why. That was just poor customer service. Luckily the pool was nice and the bed was comfortable.

My husband and I booked a couples massage on our honeymoon.
It had put a downer on the whole thing!
We drove for over 45 minutes trying to find this place...No signage for the spa....even asked at the next resort over where the canyon spa was...they have never heard of it!

They charged my CC, when we got back to our condo we called them and they do not answer or return calls....very poor....will be calling visa when back in canada....

Do not book here!

We had a wonderful two nights at The Palm Canyon Resort and Spa in Palm Springs! The room was clean and had everything we needed. The pool area was wonderful! Our patio looked out to the pool and we enjoyed sitting there and enjoying the warm weather. We used the gym two of the mornings while there and it had all the equipment we needed for a good workout. We definitely would come back for a vacation! Thank you Palm Canyon Resort for a great break from our hectic schedule. Can't wait to stay there again!

Room Tip: By the pool area! We loved using the pool and whirlpool and when not at the pool it was fun sitting...

This resort is so old and outdated it should be closed. The restaurant wasn't available, unreasonable parking restrictions because of the 6ft clearance, all features of the rooms old and very worn, overall many better options.

We are very sorry that your room did not meet your expectations or ours. As Palm Canyon Resort is one of the newest resorts added to the Diamond International family, it is our goal to provide the highest level of guest satisfaction with our wide array of resort services and amenities and gracious hospitality. Although the furniture may be considered out dated in some units, we are working hard to ensure that each guestroom is brought up to our Diamond standard of amenities which will soon include flat screen televisions, name brand appliances, premium bedding and linens and new dining room tables and chairs in the units. We assure you that if notified, our front desk staff would have done our best to offer you a solution to this issue, such as an alternative room. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced if you tried to access the restaurant after hours or when it was closed. We hope that you were able to access our bar and cocktail lounge, café or coffee shop as an alternative. We are happy to also provide friendly room service to our guests if requested. While our covered parking garage does have a height restriction, it is actually quite popular with our guests due to the added convenience of having their car away from the sun in a covered environment. We also provide additional nearby parking outside, with a short walk to the front desk. We truly hope this has not marred your stay and you will consider us for your future bookings.

We went to this resort with 30 adults and children and we ALL had a great time. This resort is close to downtown but far enough to avoid the crowds. The rooms could use updatin but for the price i think it was still a great deal especially since we all stayed outside by the fablous rock pool. The outside has waterslides and there is a cave type jacuzzi with the waterfall flowing over: fun for the kids yet romantic once they get rid of the kids at 5:00 P.M. In addition the bar/eating area still has the same great staff. The vibe here is different from all the other resorts around because it has ood music fun enough to do an adult only trip and still not too wild so the kids can enjoy it too. Downside....They seem to have some serious problems with check-in and keeping track of things. With so many people we spent a lot of time at the pool and also all around palm springs.

Room Tip: If you want quiet aske to be away from the pool. i personally do NOT like the bottom floor romms eve...
