“Loved this little gem...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We stayed there last year for our anniversary and will definitely be back. We lounged in the pool all day because it was summer and if you've been to PS in the summer you know... it's HOT. We were greeted by a very nice woman and showed around the property. We stayed in the Velvet room (I think that's what it was called) dark, quiet room with our own jacuzzi which all the rooms have. Definitely recommend this place for a romantic getaway!

This place was by far one of the greatest hotel experiences I've ever had! We were greated by an extremely friendly man, who gave us a tour of the grounds as he led us to our room. After a rather unpleasant and awkward greeting from our last stay at a B&B in Maine, it was such a great way to start the trip, and showed great customer service! We stayed in the Fountain room. It was fantastic! The room is even better in person. It's extremely private and has a great yard and porch. It was like having your own little poolhouse. It was extremely clean, and comfortable room. Had a great living room, with surprisingly comfortable couches. I loved laying out in front of the fountain, and sitting out on the porch with the candles lit at night. Each room has their own jacuzzi, which is awesome. We were there in May, so it was a little hot for the jacuzzi, but it was nice for like 5 minutes. Also had a nice little firepit, but unfortunantely we didn't get the chance to enjoy. We didn't see a single other guest, and only occasionally heard one or two. Didn't have time to enjoy the pool area, but it looked really nice. Very short walk to downtown Palm Springs, with lots of great restaurants.

Overall, the perfect hotel experience.So relaxing and romantic. Wish we could have stayed longer! I was so sad to leave! We will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed at the San Giuliano Hotel for our honeymoon last year. It was perfect! We spent time in different rooms ( our fault for not booking sooner - and it was actually fun..lol). The staff is friendly and the rooms are super clean! We're going back foe our first anniversary :).

The San Giuliano is within easy walking distance to downtown Palm Springs and they have a list of restaurants that deliver meals if you don't want to go out.

The only 'not-so-good' experience was that on one occasion there was WAYYY too much chlorine in the spa... but I mentioned it asap and the situation was corrected immediately. Internet connection comes and goes because of the mountains being so close. But then I don't go there to hang on my computer all day, either. All in all - awesome. Because it's a small hotel you're treated as the valued guest you are! We like that:) and the complimentary bubbly was delicious!

Clean, quiet, serene and romantic... the San Giuliano caters to all your senses! Highly recommended

The people were friendly. We had the privacy of a hotel with a bed and breakfast type feel. The pool was delightful and the decor and gardening was beautiful. We couldn't have had a more romantic night.

This is a gem!!! Spent two nights & wished I had more time just to enjoy every inch of it. We were in the Velvet suite & it was heaven. The price was EXTREMELY reasonable. It was clean, romantic & peaceful. The short work to downtown makes this place a must stay & a place I will keep coming back to time & time again. Not to mention the private jacuzzi in our back patio. I HIGHLY recommend!! The staff was so nice & accommodating. I can't wait for our next visit.

Came out for the weekend / birthday for my man. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was very friendly. The private jacuzzi was the selling point and it did not disappoint. The bed was super comfortable, and the room had a separate living area. The hotel only has 8 rooms and the other couples we met were very friendly. It was very quiet, but you didn't feel like you had to watch yourself. All in all a wonderful place and terrific weekend.

My husband surprised me with a trip To palm Springs for our 17th anniversary. I was very excited driving thru town and then pulling up to the hotel. We were shown to our room which was enormous...bedroom, living area and a kitchenette. The private patio was large and the hot tub was ready to go. The property was clean, quiet and less than 2 blocks from town. We loved every minute of our stay and hope to return soon.
