How to Get There
This beautiful hotel just re-opened after a change of ownership and renovation of the interiors and grounds, and we were some of the first people to stay there! It is centrally located in the historic "Movie Colony" neighborhood just east of the downtown strip, which makes it easy to walk to just about everything Palm Springs has to offer. But why leave the hotel? Our upstairs bungalow was well-decorated, the bed was super comfortable and I'm now obsessed with the Beekman product stocked in our room. Most of all, there is an energy of authentic old-Hollywood glamour and privacy that makes you truly able to relax and unwind. This will be my place to stay in Palm Springs from now on. Don't forget to enjoy a Margarita and delicious Mexican food next door at Mirasol!
My wife and I visited and we loved this place it was just delightful. We will recommend it to all our friends and family members. It was an amazing experience they really took care of us and their customers service was super
The hotel is in a decent location walking distance to the attractions downtown. The property is laid out nicely and is architecturally speaking nice.
The issue is the property has become worn since the last renovation which has been a while ago.
I read all the reviews and manager comments about "what they plan to do" over the course of 2016, but from my impression I did not see much having already been done.
I would hold off on booking this property until renovations are "complete" and you see new photographs.
Items needing refreshing or renovation include bathrooms (which are quite dated, though they have stone / tile surfaces). Bedrooms (though the beds and linens are fantastic), the accessory pieces need to be replaced. Rugs are also quite worn.
The breakfast is terrible. Seeing the staff haul the same bagels etc in and out of the freezer every day was not appetizing. Frankly, Hampton Inn does a better job. The good news is it is one block from a great Breakfast as Cheeky's.
We had a terrace room and asked to be put in one not next to the mexican restaurant next door. The honored our request verbally, then stuck us in the terrace room next to the mexican restaurant. Not really very nice. Though luckily the restaurant was not an issue so we did not complain. I did not stay in them, but the terrace room over the pool looked like a good choice as did the patio terrace room below it. I would avoid std rooms 14 and 16 because of the location.
Staff was all very nice.
Terrible experience. Pictures look amazing. They must have used Photoshop. Our room was in disrepair - holes in floor, mold in shower, Wal-mart furniture, etc. Originally booked two nights. Got in really late the first night, tried to get a refund, but no hotel rep available. Left by 7 AM and went to a real hotel. After over an hour on the phone (still no one at front desk) finally got a refund for the second night. It's a Motel 6 for five times the money. Never Ever again even if they gave us a free week.
They put some new carpet down in the reception area now they want $350 a night and want to be called a boutique Hotel they are dreaming they are a new management company that does not have a clue.i have been to the Hotel many time over the years.
