The room was clean but needed a new paint job as there were lots of scuffs on the walls. The A/C wall unit rattled and needed to be cleaned out. We could also hear everyone walking above us, in the corridor, and talking in adjoining rooms. Sleep was not great. We did not take advantage of the yoga, ...
The rooms in this hotel are very nice. They are clean, spacious and have all of the latest technology including a large flat screen TV. The balcony is also great to have. The rest of the hotel is unimpressive. The restaurant messed up twice on my order and the food is mediocre. The staff did not ...
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days for a mini vacation. The 2 main reasons I picked Palm Canyon was the kitchenette in the rooms and the awesome pool! We don't usually stay at resorts, but boy are we glad we did! Every employee we encountered was super nice and very helpful. Every answer ...
While the hotel is definitely older, the rooms are clean and spacious, the beds are comfortable with plenty of decent pillows. The eight pools are large, with water coming in from the aquifers that run underneath the ground to mix with cooler waters to provide various temperatures.
I usually stay in a 5 star hotel but it was stagecoach weekend, so this was the only room available. It was a standard room but nice. The only thing I would up grade is the bathroom shower and curtain was plastic old and run down and the tables and chairs in the outside Restaurant were old and falling ...
For it's price, having a room with a pool was so amazing. The pool was clean (I didn't get any skin rashes and I have very sensitive skin). It was heated. The room was spacious. Aircon worked great. I loved the bed, the bathroom. So spacious. I will definitely be back!
We had a great time! One bedroom was more than spacious for three of us to stay comfortably. Pool areas were nice and never super crowded. Only thing was you pay for room cleaning/extra towels/etc. We made do without but luckily we paid attention enough to put the Do Not Disturb sign out when we ...
We received a free hotel upgrade, were given awesome service between the front desk and the bar and had an amazing time lounging around. There is ping pong and a great grassy are perfect for playing and pets. The pina coladas are amazing !! This is my new home when I visit Palm Springs definitely. Special thanks to Alicia for helping us out :)
Rude upon check in. Pools were nice but when we got up on our second day t was obvious they hadn't cleaned the pool decks. Empty bottles under lawn chairs, cigarette butts and buckets of empty glass beer bottles. I picked up several buckets and cigarette butts and gave them to the staff so my kids could have a clean area to play. Also noticed kids pants and underwear on the ground from the day before. Gross. Even after giving staff all the trash they didn't come over to inspect area and pick up remaining bottles and empty cups. I didn't plan a stay at a super 8 (which are actually usually so clean!) - don't charge me a "resort" fee if you're not gonna properly clean. I do enough housework at home. I expected better for my weekend vacay. Boo
Easy check in, amazing staff. Lashone was very friendly and welcoming! Rooms beautifully decorated and comfortable.
Overall we had a good experience and a great time. The pool area, the DJ, the music, the vibe, were all great. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
Thanks to the rich history and pleasant weather, Palm Springs is a popular getaway known for its consistent sunshine, palm-lined streets and amazing blue skies. It is situated at the bottom of the San Jacinto Mountains, 120 miles east of Los Angeles. You’ll find plenty of ways to relax with indoor and outdoor entertainment. Vacation near prestigious neighborhoods that many celebrities call home.
The beautiful weather of Palm Springs allows for a great amount of outdoor fun. Children will love visiting the "Living Desert," home to over 400 wild animals. This zoo and botanical garden is located on 1,200 acres of protected land. Enjoy live shows, or visit the modern train exhibit.
The Palm Springs Aerial Tramway is also a must-see attraction. Guests venture on a 10-minute trip through various climate zones. At the top, you may decide to walk the nature trails or strap on skis in the winter. No matter what time of year, the view is always impressive.
Palm Springs is a desert community with numerous exciting trails. The Indian Canyons are the perfect place to watch the birds and gain a greater appreciation for nature. Look out for lizards and other animals that may make an appearance.
History buffs will want to visit the Air Museum, one of the largest collections of WWII memorabilia in the world. Airplanes, artifacts and artwork are on display. You will even be able to test your skills in a real flight simulator.
The city is filled with mid-century modern architecture. Most buildings are sleek and unlike any others in the country. Numerous tours present some of the most unique buildings and homes of the stars. For instance, the Kaufmann House is one of the best examples of international-style architecture. This property has been owned by the likes of none other than Barry Manilow. Araby Cove, home of Howard Hughes, is another architectural landmark. Be sure to visit Elvis's Honeymoon Hideaway as well.
The Downtown and Uptown Design District provide wonderful mid-century retailers, art galleries, antique shops and fashion boutiques. For big name designers, head to El Paseo, the "Rodeo Drive of the Desert." El Paseo includes blocks with awning-covered storefronts, designer boutiques and sidewalk cafes.
Palm Springs has a unique blend of dining options. You can begin the morning at one of the specialty cafes, enjoy a poolside lunch, and eat an al fresco dinner beneath the San Jacinto Mountains. One of the best coffee shops is in the Uptown District. Ernest Coffee is the only independent coffee shop to serve Stumptown coffee, an especially aromatic beverage. For a great Italian dinner, try Appetito; the menu is rich with homemade pasta, paninis and pizza. Most ingredients are sourced from local produce stores and, although the atmosphere is casual, the food is sure to please.
All of the Palm Springs hotels offer guests mountain views. Smaller hotels and boutique accommodations offer distinct architecture and personalized service. For complete pampering, there are numerous, luxurious full-service Palm Springs hotels. The Renaissance Palm Springs and Hard Rock Hotel Palm Springs are popular vacation destinations. Well-known chains like Courtyard by Marriott, Hilton and Comfort Inn are ideal for families.
The wonderful weather allows for special events throughout the year. In January, Palm Springs hosts the country's largest International Film Festival. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the Bob Hope Classic. Summer brings VillageFest, a celebration with art, crafts, live music and great food. On weekend mornings in the summer, there is a bustling street fair downtown.
The peak season in Palm Springs is January to May. The weather is warm, and most visitors try to escape the cold from other parts of the country. Few hotel deals are offered at this time. As summer hits, the desert heat kicks in, and temperatures soar above 100 degrees Fahrenheit. This slows the crowds, so hotel discounts are common. To avoid the heat, try planning activities in the morning and enjoying the pool in the afternoon.
