Stayed here for 2 nights in October for a friends birthday party. The hotel is fun and very colorful and has a clientele that is quite young. The hotels bright colors are also present throughout all the rooms which are clean, very functional, nice big bathrooms, and a mid century modern style decor that is ever so present in Palm Springs.
Our rooms were suites (very big) on the 2nd or 3rd floor (can't remember exactly) and had balconies that faced the pool and the mountains...the best option for the best views. The pool is really big, clean, and nice and has a huge swan float that swimmers can ride a top. There is also a large hot tub. The grounds are gorgeous..very verdant and green with desert plants and the very tall, skinny palm trees that are so common in Palm Springs that scrape and frame the desert sky.
Saturday poolside is busy with a DJ continualy pumping out dance music until 8 pm or so. There is a poolside bar with waitors and waitresses rushing out drinks to people, food can also be ordered.
Sunday poolside is "desert chill" less busy, fewer swimmers, and the DJ plays chill out ambient music.
The hotel has to restaurants: El Jefe which is the "cuisine of Mexico City" serving small plates. and the other is the celebrated Tinto: restaurant of Chef Jose Garces serving foor of the Basque region of Spain. This is a beautiful restaurant inside and out. The outside patio with it's torche lamps and flickering candles looks like a great place to dine in good weather. Regretably I did not get to dine at either restaurant since we were a large group and had so many different opinions.
I look forward to staying at this hotel once again as it was an exciting, vibrant atmosphere with good service, good restaurants , and a nice pool scene. A great ambient desert getaway!
