We loved the theme /vibe of the property. Very clean common areas, spacious rooms! However, the bathroom had a bad odor, other than that, it was a very pleasant short stay!

We basically lounged by the pool for 3 days, eating lunch there and only leaving the hotel for dinner. We'd go back in a heartbeat. Our "Best" room was on the 2nd floor with a balcony overlooking the pool, which was nice (another "Best"-level room our friend stayed in had a covered back patio with no view but had an outdoor shower). We loved the room's decor, size (huge!), and amenities (Nespresso, great snacks, and toiletries). My sole critique of the hotel was that the poolside service was lacking compared to other hotels we've stayed at in PS. Towels were often out of stock even when the pool wasn't full, and we'd have to go inside to ask for them or to order drinks or food. That said, the food and cocktails at the bar and poolside were delicious. All the staff we encountered were adorable and super helpful so it was odd that there was this mismatch between them and the pro-activeness of the service.

A hidden gem!! Beautiful private setting, large quest rooms, friendly staff!

Everything about the property is absolutely beautiful! My room was very spacious, comfortable and very clean. There is a great bar and dining area and the pool area is fantastic. The grounds are lush and tropical with a great view of the mountains. The pool and hot tub are wonderful! The location is fantastic! And, the staff is very professional, welcoming, friendly, and hard working!

Nice, quiet hotel. Amenities were great, but bed/pillows gave us sore backs. I’m sure they are quality bedding, but the down pillows gave no support. Next time we will bring our own. The staff were very friendly during the entire stay. the decor was cute and room a nice size. It was a little difficult not having a TV by day 2, but not a deal breaker for a short trip. Great location. It was nice having a basic breakfast option each day. The drinks from bar were delicious. The pool area was lovely and never over crowded. Lots of good spots to lounge around. The music playing outside was a nice touch and good eclectic mix. We will definitely stay here again.

Great hotel. We always stayed at Parker, L’Horizon, Sparrows, Korakia, etc. we were talked into trying holiday house by a manager at sparrows and we’re now converts. Great food, drinks, premises, location, and people. Strongly recommend.

Great staff, cute rooms! The style of the hotel was so laid back and sophisticated. We only stayed for one night, but definitely would come back if we’re ever in the area again!

Love beads and Rose upon check-in, chocolate dipped fortune cookies upon check-out, and mid-century modern galore in between?! Yes all that during my stay. Hotel staff is friendly and helpful room was very clean and up to standards. I work in the hospitality field and was very impressed during my stay. My only recommendation for the hotel would be to clean a bit better behind the beautiful standing tub. I have worked in housekeeping so look at everything, but other than that, all was great.

Quiet, enjoyable, and very friendly and accommodating staff.

This hotel is everything we could want and more! I never want to stay anywhere else. It’s just so beautiful and the location is perfect. I want to decorate my house the way Mark D. Skies designed this hotel. Obsessed with everything about it! Pool is great too. Staff is super nice.

Loved our stay here, the hotel staff were friendly and facilities were well kept. Hotel is aesthetically pleasing and full of hip details. Came for peaceful long weekend and that’s exactly what we got! Almost want to keep this place a secret but know I’ll end up recommending it to anyone traveling to Palm Springs.

This hotel is tucked right off the main drag through Palm Springs, within walking distance of many great restaurants. It is clean, beautifully decorated, and the staff was great. If you are looking for privacy and a place to get unplugged, this is it. Wireless was available, but there were no phones, radios or televisions in the rooms. Insulation between the rooms was sketchy, and we were woken at 6am by our neighbor making an early phone call in the bathroom that adjoined ours. Pool was unheated, so we were only able to swim one day when it was really hot outside, otherwise it was too freezing the time of year we were there. There is also a popular bar right behind the hotel that can get loud on the weekends.

Loved it! Great location, room, staff. Free parking. Great pool!
