“Perfection”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

Lovely location, you can walk to town We did on our first day but it can get hot
A perfect spot close to golf, the town, shopping everything. We had never been to Palm Springs and spent a lot of time before booking trying to figure out on the net how far away different areas were from town. Glad we booked A Place in the Sun.
The swimming pool was heated to just the right temp and the hot tub was hot!
It's a quiet spot, not near any super busy roads, free parking available and the rooms are nicely done. We had a one bedroom that was terrific, great kitchen Everything was clean The owners were helpful and Joe on the desk when we phoned to book was terrific. Sometimes I find if I phone I get as good if not a better rate than though the net and you get a sense of the hotel, or the staff anyway.
We can't wait to go back and stay longer Most guests were older and some planned to stay for a period of time over the winter which seems like a great idea. I'm back to -3 degrees.

Room Tip: Look at the map of the property on their web site aplaceinthesun.com Ask Joe for help the units a...

My daughter and I went to Palm Springs for the first time and were lucky to find A Plave in the Sun.. Beautifully maintained with a great pool. Owners, Norma nd Ron are delightful. Close to town and all the great events in PS.

We found APITS years ago while searching for a pet friendly place. This tops them all. The dogs are welcome everywhere except busy holidays when they may not be permitted poolside. Most of the "rooms" have a patio and small yard that is dog convenient. Rooms are clean and well furnished and the new flatscreen tv s are great. We did not have much look getting the wifi to work. The pool and misters are excellent. Terrific DVD and book selection. Extremely quiet but short drive to town. It is a vintage building so don't expect Four Seasons room, but it is clean, quiet and convenient.

Room Tip: Get a room with a yard of you have a dog.

This was my first visit to Palm Springs. I chose this hotel because of Trip Advisor recommendations, and I was not disappointed. It's a classic, set on a quiet street of finer homes. The Place is quiet, clean, bright and comfortable. The grounds are immaculate too, with enough space to breathe easily. It's located right next to the Riverside Trail, which is flat and paved on one side (compact dirt on the other). Norma, Ron and Joe are wonderful hosts, always helpful and smiling. I was very sorry to leave after only six days and am hoping to come back again for a longer stay.

Room Tip: I stayed in Unit 1, which is beside both the office and the housekeepers' supply room. The noise...

We stayed Feb. 10-12 so my husband could ride in the Tour de Palm Springs and we wish we could have stayed longer!! This is only our second time here and I can't imagine EVER staying anywhere else except A Place in the Sun!!

I stayed at the hotel (while my husband was riding in the TDPS) and relaxed in our room with a couple of movies from the office. They have breakfast in the gazebo by the pool on the weekends and it was terrific!!! Lots of muffins, pastries, cereal, fruits, coffee, etc. that were yummy. Thanks to Joe who is such a sweetheart, fun to talk to and very helpful with any questions or concerns you may have. Thanks, also, to the ladies who allowed me my privacy on Saturday and then fixed up the room when I went out for an errand. They, too, are also sweethearts!!

We've already booked our week-long summer vacation here to make sure we got the large studio (our favorite room) which is the perfect size for the two of us. However, staying only 2 nights at this wonderful hotel is so relaxing, 6 nights are going to be heaven!! The peace and quiet are rarely found elsewhere!!

Finally, thanks to Ron and Norma, for being terrific hosts, having such a great staff and most of all, for the wonderful work you have done to make good customer service look easy. We appreciate all of your effort and we love A Place in the Sun!!!!

This is the only place we will stay in Palm Springs. Why, you ask? Well, because we love it. We love it because it is impeccably clean and maintained. We love it because it is very quiet and lovely. We love it because it is authentic vintage Palm Springs and this is carefully preserved. We don't love sterile cookie cutter corporate hotels and motels, which is why we also love this place, with its apartments and kitchenettes, hot tub, and pool. It has character and charm. A lovely poolside brunch every weekend is also a generous and an economic perk. The location allows for relaxing walks. Most of all we love it because we have two hearing service dogs and A Place in the Sun welcomes all dogs with compassion and kindness. They even offered us clean bedding for our animals to sleep on. If you are looking for the real deal, this place is it. Friendly, very clean, vintage, with lots of history behind it. (And they recycle!)

Room Tip: Apartment 8 has killer views of the moutains.

We so enjoyed our stay - it is now our "go to" place in Palm Springs! The fact that they made our pets feel welcome (with the large, walled in back yard!) was a huge plus in our book. Everything was spotless, the surroundings were beautifully kept and very quiet. My husband and our 13 year old son loved the heated salt-water pool & hot tub. They swam at least three times a day. I can't wait to go back! I highly recommend this place to everyone:-)

Thanks Norma and Ron!!
