Can't wait to return!

We absolutely love this hotel and we will be back, we had such a lovely time. The property is perfect for us. No smoking, no children! We love that. We had a lovely king duplex room with lounge downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs with a roof terrace. The staff were fabulous from check in to departure. The property is immaculately clean and quiet, OK so there is a little road noise if your room is at the road side of the property, but it is not disturbing.
A couple of suggestions - I think a table and a couple of chairs is needed outside room 12 so room 12 can eat their breakfast on their own patio. I would also remove the gate so the terrace to room 28 is completely private and no-one else can access it. Also, I would change the door tags that can be used as Privacy Please/Service Please to separate tags, I found they would flip around when I wanted the room cleaned and the maid thought we wanted privacy. However, even without the minor changes, this property is close to perfection in my eyes. I simply cannot wait to return. LOVED IT!

Pleasant staff.
I called the hotel directly to inquire about their location because I wanted to be in the heart of downtown Palm Springs. I was assured that’s where they were. Not so.
Quiet, clean, overpriced and quite a walk to downtown. Wish we had stayed at the Hyatt we found in the heart of town.

The paint was still wet on the staircase railing to our second floor room. The owners recently finished renovating this boutique hotel conveniently located on North Indian Canyon Drive, and the all-white exteriors and vintage-accented decor evoke 1950's Hollywood in a proto-Rat Pack kind of way. There are only sixteen rooms and they're just for adults, no kids. My husband and I paid for a standard king room at $220 per night, a comparatively affordable rate by Palm Springs standards considering it was just a block away from the hubbub of activity on Palm Canyon. Our room had a nice large shower, though everything else was tightly spaced.

Their dedication to period-authentic style had its downside. You could easily cut your fingers on the sharp deco knobs on the dresser drawers. The pool was small but serviceable. I just wish they did a more consistent job cleaning it. The complimentary breakfast was a reasonable choice of fruit, yogurt, cereal, muffins, and bagels - though it was shameful how some of the guests left their garbage on outdoor tables throughout the complex. The reality was that the front desk staff is there only until 5PM and that you have to go next door to the Triada Hotel if you need after-hours service. All in all, even with the slight kinks, this was a genuinely pleasant stay.
