Viceroy or Colony

I will be traveling to Palm Springs with my husband and 2 teenage sons over the Thanksgiving holiday. I have reservations at both the Colony and the Viceroy hotels. I have read great reviews for both and then some not so great reviews. Can anyone give me some advice on which hotel is better? We would like to spend some time at a pool but also want to be close to hiking and desert trips. For the kind of money we are spending I am looking for clean, comfortable updated accommodations and some unique ambiance. Will I get that at either of these places or do I need to look elsewhere?

Thank you for your help.

I love the Colony Palms, it's my favorite hotel in Palm Springs. However, I wouldn't call it, nor the Viceroy, ideal for families. Colony has a better pool (Viceroy is very intimate). Colony Palms rooms are small, but the bungalows are fantastic. In terms of hiking and desert trips, the locations are equally good. For families, I would look at the Hyatt.
