“a wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2011

I am a local resident. An old friend came to visit on a very busy weekend and most other hotels were full. I booked her here and was amazed at the nice rooms, great pools, beautiful restaurant and very reasonable rates. The staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful, especially Stephanie.
This is an area with many many outstanding hotels and spas and I look forward to having all my out of town guests stay here in the future.

I was lucky to win a 2 night stay for 10 friends at the Desert Hot Springs Spa Tour in February 2011 at this hotel. They gave us 5 rooms together on the second floor with a community porch so we could have semi-private group get-togethers.
From the moment we checked in they couldn't have been more accommodating. We had free use of the "jade beds" and the beautiful pool and two jacuzzis. That evening they served us a great pasta feast in a private dining room and let us stay as long as we wanted even when the staff cleaned up and went home.
The next morning they brought coffee and tea service to the porch area so we could stay in our jammies.
Not all of these percs would be offered to everyone but if you are thinking of a great place to bring family and friends for a few days in the Palm Springs area -- this is highly recommended.

Room Tip: There are suites with a private jacuzzis.

We won a two night stay from a drawing at the Desert Spa Tour. It couldn't have been a more delightful stay. We had 5 rooms next to each other and there was a wonderful sitting area in the outdoor foyer where we could congregate for coffee in the mornings and Happy Hour in the evenings. The rooms were all equipped with single beds, and fresh retro decor and wonderful bathrooms... great shower.
We also received a delicious pasta dinner where we had our own room to congregate. The help was warm and friendly and very accommodating.
Such a relaxing place to soak, swim, sun and be pampered.
We are looking forward to our second annual get-together next year.

We were a group of eight women who generally do a lot of stuff together: hiking, golfing, eating! And we decided to end the season with 24 hours at a spa. The Aqua Soleil worked perfectly for us. I can't talk about the spa treatments because we primarily hung out together in the mineral pools and at dinner. They accommodated us in our own dining space and really catered to us. We had lovely outdoor balcony space near our room to have drinks before dinner and breakfast the next day. They even served us coffee there! The rooms were clean, well appointed for our purposes and the bathrooms were totally updated. The shower was great. I really recommend the Aqua Soleil for group reunions.

Looks like they're refurbishing this place, but it's not there, yet. With an uncovered electric outlet in our room, I don't think it was even up to code for our visit. Bath linens included: 1 washcloth and 2 off-tinted bath towels. (no hand towels). No extra pillows provided (only 2 pillows on bed). Room heater worked, but put out very dry, uncomfortable heat. It looked like they are repurposing their furniture. It was a nice, modern style, but very dinged-up. Old TV (not flat-screen). The new glass tile in the spacious shower is very attractive, but the odd 2-toned paint on the bedroom walls misses the mark.
We eagerly anticipated bathing in their mineral pools, but temperature of the hottub prohibited that. If pools had been warm enough, providing robes would have been a nice touch--otherwise it would have been a long walk from our room in just swimsuits.
We'll look for another place to stay next time.

Rooms are very comfortable. Pool & hot tub sparkling clean. The staff were always accommodating with small requests. The food in the restaurant is not only delicious & well prepared but very reasonably priced.
Only thing we might add is not to book Sat. night during school break times as it gets very noisy and pool is taken over.

My vision of a perfect weekend getaway is what I experienced here. The front desk told me upon arrival that they had done some extensive remodeling recently, and it really showed. Lush landscaping with palm trees in the the courtyard; my room fresh, modern, and comfortable....perfect. But the trademark of this hotel resort are the mineral spas and pool. My room had a private mineral spa in a partitioned room in the back. Incredible. There are also outdoor spas, and a large pool in the courtyard. Capped off with the very friendly staff with excellent service that really made my stay enjoyable and relaxing. Hotel has a restaurant, but you are only 15 minutes away from Palm Springs with all their trendy restaurants and bars. Absolutely love!
