This is quite simply the best hotel in Palm Springs; it is quite likely the best hotel in southern California. Nowhere i have ever stayed in 15 years has offered such immediate and genuine hospitality and such an incredibly well appointed and beautiful hotel. Everything the reviews say is correct, it may be difficult to believe but it is; this is one gem of a hotel.
I arrived, after some difficulty finding the hotel (Larry was very helpful on the phone) to be offered a personal tour of the hotel and a much appreciated cold beer. The outdoor aircon surrounding the pool had a great effect on the air quality and made the pool area, around which the hotel is laid out, a great place to sit and relax. The room was large, cool, tasteful, exceptionally clean and stocked with free items like coke and water, biscuits and snacks. The Kitchen was really new and clean and the bathroom was the best i have seen in quite some time.
After some time unpacking i had planned to go to a restaurant and Larry had given me sample menu's and rung the best three to find out when they were closing; but after 5 minutes by the pool i was ready to give in and stay poolside intot he night.
The hotel was quiet whilst i was there, it was June after all and mid-week; there are just 10 rooms which makes a perfect atmosphere and gives everyone some room; i would love to return outside of the hot season and witness the pit bbq and the atmosphere.
Unfortunatly i could only stay one day, but I will certainly be returning for a few days as soon as possible. This hotel is a destination for me, not a place to sleep!
