Century Palm Springs
Reviewed May 26, 2010

This was our second stay at The Century. After our first vist we knew we wanted to return for a special occasion. Well, this was it, my 40th!

We rented out the whole place, and reserved all 9 units. The weather, staff, setting (ie: direct mountains with palm trees view), accommodations were perfect. It's just our cup of tea...stylish and hip, but not "ritzy" or "fancy." There's also something homey about it. The mid-century aesthetic seems to just give me permission to kick my feet up and leaves my cares at home.

I already can't wait to get back there! Morning continental breakfasts and happy hour cocktails are lovely too, so you can leave as little as you wish.

a group of us, about 16 got together to celebrate one of our friend's 40th birthday. the staff could not have been more accommodating, friendly and at the ready to help us and ensure that the weekend turned out to be one of the best I have had in a very long time. talk about organized, these guys where there early and stayed late to clean, clean, clean. the rooms were immaculate and compared to some of the other places I have seen in Palm Springs they were definitely above average, very modern and the beds were a dream... haha for the bit that we slept. give this place a try, it was well worth it!!

This place is extremely comfortable, stylish, and friendly. Whatever you're looking for in Palm Springs in terms of the guests' demographics, their proclivities, room price, and level of service and amenity, there is a place for you--but probably just one place. Over the last five years, I have stayed here probably twenty or more times. In search of better values or variety, my friends and I have very occasionally shifted our custom elsewhere. I have always regretted doing so, and returning the Century this weekend reminded me of what I like about the place: spacious, well appointed rooms, incredible service, friendly staff, great view, central location in Warm Sands, and consistent upgrading and maintenance. There are cheaper places, there are more "active" places, and there are places that anyone can get into for the day for $10. The Century is none of that. For us--a bunch of 40-something professional working stiffs in and out of relationships and just looking for some R+R, he Century fits just right.

I didn't care much for Palm Springs until I discovered this place. I stayed last July with a friend and went solo this April. Had a blast both times. The decor is impeccable and the staff attentive. In general the guests are all very friendly so going alone was just great. You can be left alone or engage in conversation all day long. I'll be back soon, although I do prefer off season when it's hot day and night. I'm not much for cold evenings after a day of sun.

The guests tend to attract those 35 and up who want a small gay hotel with great service and amenities in a quite and hip setting. The staff are friendly and there to accommodate your very need. It's a great place to go if you want pampering in the sun by the pool.

We stayed at the Century Palm Springs for the second time, and it was as good as ever. The staff is welcoming and funny, and because there are so few rooms (just nine), they get to know you quickly. They know when to bring you a martini (free), when to clean your room (when you're out, not when you're there!), and they know how to keep a great hotel running, entirely out of your sight.

The rooms are really nice. The mattresses are ultra-soft, the "Century" embroidered linens are a nice touch, and things are generally kept in tip-top shape. And, of course, the theme of mid-century modern decor runs throughout.

The guys who run the joint are incredibly friendly. They're professional, but not to a point of being stuffy. Some are more formal than others, but they're all eminently approachable and kind. I'm always surprised at the level of service this little team is able to provide to guests of the Century.

It's technically a clothing optional joint, as many places are, but it's nothing to be too afraid of if you're a clothing-mandatory kind of guy. The place is definitely not a sex joint. It's a gay men's hotel, but it's tame, comfortable, and classy. And if you feel inspired to slip off the speedos for a more evenly-distributed tan, you can do it, too.

Oh, and the breakfast is generous and free, with french-press coffee made to order.

Comfy beds, awesome service, great value, good location, and super-clean rooms. The best hotels could learn from these guys. Big, big thumbs up.

Good location, great environment, great attention. Smaller but not claustrophobic (5 minutes drive to strip) and very, very relaxing
