Recent guest reviews

We had a wonderful romantic long weekend at this midcentury modern haven. Food and staff were amazing. Jan-Bas took such personal care of us and recommended hiking picturesque hiking in Joshua Tree and a very informative modern architecture tour with Michael Stern. Bungalow was just so well appointed and welcoming....

Best hotel I've been to! Staff was super thoughtful and friendly! We loved our stay here - don't think twice about booking this place.

Such beautiful grounds. Very top notch BUT for the price you pay you expect more. My overall rating is a 3 and would have given it a 4 but when I sat and thought about all the inconveniences and waiting around I did it was quite annoying. First we always go to the hotel as early in our stay as possible and of course checking in early is usually not a problem at most hotels I stay at but since this one only has 25 rooms it understandably took longer BUT check in is at 3pm and we waited until after 4 pm for our room. This was not the first because we heard other guests talking about this when we were at the bar waiting around for our room and then the next day we saw guests waiting at the bar that the same time waiting for their check in. This was the first waiting game but they did acknowledge this was annoying us so they paid for our bar tab while we were waiting so that was nice. The other issue was any time we needed our car or anything from our car we had to wait for the valet who is also the bell boy to be there. Another waiting game but the blonde bell . The last annoying and probably most annoying part of this hotel is that they only have one bartender who also is the waiter for the pool so in a nutshell you were constantly waiting for your drink and/or you would go up to the bar and he was making drinks already for someone else or had to run drinks. Every time we ordered a drink we felt as though we were putting the bartender out and they were annoyed with it.

Each room is it's own little unit, very private and a great place for a little getaway.

Perfect and classy. Small hotel but big rooms. Great pool and lovely breakfast. We would love to come back!!

Everything was done smoothly & very well here. Beautiful, efficient, thoughtful & considerate in every way. The only thing that would keep some people away that I could see is that the bathroom shelves were in serious need of refinishing & the shower/tub was very worse for wear-- with huge chunks (grapefruit sized) of enamel missing in the tub, w/stained grout. While I liked the place so much I did not let it phase me & it may have been the only vintage tub in that condition, maybe the more particular folks would want to double check in advance that they'll not get a tub in that state.

Had an amazing time here after having an awful experience at another hotel close by. Very relaxing starting with breakfast being delivered to our patio every morning. Can't wait to return!

Horizon hotel had everything we needed. However, do not be expecting bells and whistles. There is a gate to access the hotel which requires a key card. This made me wonder if this part of Palm Springs is not super safe. Nonetheless, the rooms were spacious and clean. Breakfast in the morning is VERY simple (cereal, bagel, juice and coffee) but, again, just enough. With the going rate of other boutique hotels in the area, I would definitely recommend someone stay here. Make sure you get a room with a patio facing the pool. Some have a patio that faces the parking lot which would have been a bummer. They would do well to have in-room bathrobes as well.

We stayed there for a night and had a wonderful time. This hotel is not like a typical hotel. Each room is a sectioned off unit (one floor) and has a patio. We liked our room, which is at the back and not facing the pool, as we had more privacy while having breakfast at the patio looking out the mountains. Overall, very satisfying stay. Great for those looking for some quiet and relaxing time.

Fun alternative to the typical chain hotel!

I've been to Palm Springs several times and this has been my favorite hotel by far. The rooms are clean and the decor is very cool mid-century modern. It's a small one story hotel, so nobody is walking above you and they don't allow kids which is great. The outdoor showers are wonderful and breakfast delivered poolside (for free) is a great perk. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is retro without being campy-- you don't feel faintly foolish being here. This hotel is hip without being a scene-- you ARE cool enough to stay here. This hotel is quiet, but not dead. The service is wonderful, casual and personal. The rooms/beds were very comfortable and superbly clean-- no weird smells. My favourite hotel experience so far.

Our reason for this trip was to just get away. We only stayed one night and chose this hotel because of the minimal guests and the pool. The pool was great. It was like having our own space. I am sure it gets noisy and crowded on weekends but we had a mid week trip. My only complaint was the room darkening blinds in the room. They didn't pull shut enough so by 7:00 am there was sooo much light in the room that we were forced to get moving. No problem there. We had room service delivered poolside at 8am and then we went for a swim before heading back home. By the way water should b e complimentary in the summer.
