This was our first time to the Palm Springs area. It was also just 2 days after a hectic season of business and the start of our all important vacation break. Mutual friends suggested this perfect place to stay as it was their favorite.
Palm Springs is like a flash of the past with rejuvinated neighborhoods of all styles and taste. It's very high-end WITHOUT the attitude! The Old Ranch Inn was fabulous starting with the easy parking of our car. A tastefully decorated breezeway led us to the quaint office. There, Larry greeted us and checked us in. Although we anticipated a 3pm arrival, we had misplaced memory that Pacific time was one hour earlier than our state of Utah. No bother, Larry was extremely welcoming and we apologized for being dummies. We simply enjoyed a well planned pool area with table settings and PLENTY of room to stretch out. We had unloaded the car and carefully placed our things outside the room with no intention to have our housekeeping gal rush on our account. But while enjoying wine, we suddenly discovered she was lifting our heavy luggage and boxes, everything was being placed in the room! We rushed over to assist, but this is the cache of this establishment. Total customer care. She was a sweetheart and the room sparkled!
Our room (#12) was decorated with such warmth and charm, but it was substantial and very rich feeling. The bed was sublime. The bathroom even felt artsy along with the other multi colored walls. The furniture was very comfortable too. A/C remote control by the bed! The kitchen had everything one could want. Our friends arrived and by that time, I had prepared cheese plates and opened some chilled champagne,.... such is the spice of life and this wonderful place will help you achieve it.
Ed and Larry, from the start you brought on the great vibe. Ed with your emails and follow up, great personality. Larry - thanks for the warm greeting! And the ensuing conversations with you later were wonderful. Our vacation started with meeting you guys and well - we're in love with your creation there and you should be very proud. It's what people that appreciate time away from hectic life need. The pool was fresh, beautiful gardening, a restored piece of Palm Springs History that feels special - you've done it all. Thank you for the excellent treatment and perfect stay. This is how it's done RIGHT. Cheers to your success from the guys at Lake Powell. See you in the future!
