Del Marcos Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This place was authentic in every way. From the friendly and very helpful staff, to the beautiful breakfast some afternoon cocktail party everything was very well executed. Our room was very clean, but as to be expected with an older property there were some very minor repairs that need to be made. That’s the only issue we have time we were there. If you want a truly original Palm Springs experience

I loved the building, grounds, room, and the history of hotel. We got to know some other travelers at the breakfasts and happy hours, which made the vacation very special.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and our room was clean and bright. We enjoyed the breakfast and happy hour offered each day and the pool area was well maintained and very pleasant. Due to the great location of the Del Marcos we were able to walk into town and not worry about parking.

Very nice small hotel, a great value. The all adult theme and a rule against cell phones by the pool made the stay more enjoyable.

We needed a quiet and relaxing getaway so were very pleased to find that this hotel was for adults only. They don’t allow cellphone conversations or ringtones by the pool either, which was nice. They provided a complimentary continental breakfast as well as an afternoon happy hour, where there were snacks and drinks for hotel guests. They also had bicycles available to borrow without charge. Overall, there were a lot of nice amenities for a reasonable price. The rooms were clean and I loved the toiletries they provided in the bathroom. It was overall a very enjoyable stay and I would be happy to return one day.

This is an interesting building, designed by a local architect. William F. Cody, along modernist principles inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright. The owners have tried to put in appropriate furniture so it feels authentic; that can be a bit off-putting as it can remind you of visits to the houses of older relatives. The room was clean and comfortable, but inevitably felt old -fashioned. The pool was too shallow and so full of couples just standing around it wasn't actually possible to swim. It's close to the centre, but very quiet and parking is easy.

The Del Marcos is in an excellent location, one block off to the main shopping and dining street. The retro style was fun and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Ashley made the stay perfect. She offered suggestions about the area. This hotel offers a happy hour & breakfast. All was wonderful.

We loved the whole feeling and experience, from the architecture to the brunch & happy hour, to the quiet, sunny, mellow poolside atmosphere. The staff was excellent. Having bikes was a plus, as was being walking distance from lots of shops & restaurants. The only negative was a plumbing incident that caused some hub-bub by the pool for a day or two. Hope to return someday.
