The 197-room Hyatt Palm Springs is conveniently located on Palm Canyon Drive in the middle of downtown. Originally built in the 1980s, the atrium-style, all-suite hotel was completely redesigned in 2009. Today it blends a retro look (imagine burnt-orange walls, white banquettes, polished dark wood furniture) with modern amenities, and draws guests and locals with its poolside cabanas and lively bar scene.
Bed and Bath
The decor — white, orange and chocolate brown — is a blend of retro and modern. Each of the rooms has a 42” flat-screen and a comfortable, well-lighted place to work or lounge. And the oh-so-comfortable beds are proprietary Hyatt Grand Beds and, if you love them, you can buy one online. Balconies have cushioned chaises ideal for admiring the big orange desert moon and canopy of stars.
In the afternoon, guests can take a break from the heat and enjoy free happy hour appetizers (and half-off drinks) at the indoor-outdoor bar. Although it’s near the pool, it’s not actually a pool bar, escaping the scene-iness of the latter. Except on very hot days, the French doors are folded back, bringing the outdoors in. Around the pool, misters keep sunbathers cool in the dry heat and tent cabanas (for rent by the day) offer shade and privacy.
In the Area
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway skims canyon walls on its way up 2.5 miles to the top of Mount San Jacinto. Breathe the pine-scented air and hike trails leading to views out over the entire Coachella Valley. Palm Springs Architectural Tours offers a three-hour tour (in an air-conditioned van) of the city’s most notable mid-century (1950s-1970s) Desert Modernism architecture — iconic steel and glass homes by legendary architects Neutra, Alexander, Clark and Frey. Newly chic, the Uptown Design District — along Palm Canyon Drive from Alejo Road to Vista Chino — is a fashionably funky assortment of galleries, restaurants and shops. Everyone goes for breakfast (try the bacon flights) at Cheeky’s and comes back for a pizza-and-cocktails dinner right next door at Birba. Elvis and Priscilla honeymooned in Palm Springs. Take a tour and have your picture taken in the “honeymoon suite” of their mid-century modern hideaway. Every Thursday evening, the locals all turn out for a festive street fair along downtown’s Palm Canyon Drive for live entertainment, food carts, crafts (mostly jewelry) and a certified farmers’ market.
How to Get There
This hotel felt dirty the entire time we were there. The bathroom literally had streaks of mud on the floor from where you can tell they tried to clean. The free appetizers were nice though. Wouldn’t go go here.
Was on as business trip and we all know those are dreadful, having a clean comfortable room to come to makes a world of difference . The room was top notch and all its workers were courteous and professional. Pool area was resort style and very inviting. I would definitely recommend this Hyatt to anyone traveling to Palm Springs. I leave this trip looking forward to my next time here and this will definitely be my place of stay .
We stayed at this dump this past weekend. I have had better stays at motels. This is a true dump with employees that do not care at all about their guests. I complained to corporate and got in touch with JD who said they would have the manager contact me and nobody even reached out. It started when we entered our rooms and the linens were dirty and their were live bugs in the room. We were tired so we complained and went to sleep. The next day we requested some towels and after a 45 minute wait and 6 calls I told the front desk I would stay on hold with them until someone arrived. After holding for 15 minutes finally I received towels. I was continuously put on hold and given the run around. I stay at Hyatt hotels a lot and this staff is the worst of the worst. The fact that I was told by corporate that I would get a call to help with these concerns and that the hotel management did not even care to check in was the final straw. I highly recommend that you avoid this place. They truly do not care at all about their guests.
Old. Needs to be renovated badly. Found a dead bug in the bathroom. Could hear street noise. I usually find Hyatt’s to be very nice, but this is by far the worst one. I left ASAP for fear more bugs would get in my luggage.
Booked a VIP suite and it was terrible. Couch was so old and didn’t pull out and we didn’t have room to sleep in this large VIP room. Hotel was never renovated and mislead me to believe I was getting a great deal for $650 a night. They were very nice in the hotel but it didn’t make a difference. I had to leave hotel and find another place to stay
