We have a reunion of old friends here every year. We could not ask for a better place to hold this event. The grounds are beautiful, the staff is friendly and the facilities are perfect. It is like a step back in time to a the 50's.

My family began coming here in 1965, and I hadn't been back in 25 years. It remains what it was; a charming, quiet little hotel with great people. It has aged some, but they do a great job keeping it up. We will be back.

Wow, I bet you saw a few changes since the mid-60's! Saltwater pool and spa, professional artificial turf putting green, custom micromist system around the pool and gazebo, custom palm tree lighting, electric fireplaces...I could go on and on! it's been so much fun remodeling these charming bungalows since we bought this October 1999. Please don't wait so long to come back the next time!
Best, Norma & Ron

A Place in the Sun is a perfect quiet get a way for people that don't need all the amenities of room service and gym. It's located just blocks from great shopping and dining. Also minutes from the best hiking in the desert. Norman from the front desk made us feel very welcome. The guests that we met had been coming back for years. I can't wait to book my next spring break vacation!

Room Tip: The apartment size is small but perfect if you are good with space! Loved it!

We recently had another special visit to 'A Place in the Sun' in downtown Palm Springs. Walking distance to all the downtown restaurants and shopping.

You could not tempt us away from this property with a 5 star hotel giveaway! It is all about the ambiance. We love the friendly and efficient staff and, of course, returning friends we have met over the years.

Can't wait for next time!

We stayed in the two bedroom bungalow and loved every minute! Roomy for 4 adults and 2 kids and was a great vacation. We used the grill and the hot tub and the kids had fun in the pool. Everything was very clean and I loved the attention to detail that the owners have. Would def stay again!

One of the many small hotels in Palm Springs the Place in the Sun has around 17 rooms that are by in large rented by returnees. We were first timers who stayed in a smaller studio. The room is small, but we were aware of its size as we previewed it on the hotel website. We were at the Indian Wells tennis tournament for half of the days that we stayed and outside by the pool for the other half so that we had no need for larger quarters. Our room was updated and maintained quite well. Weekend continental breakfast by the pool excellent; weekdays breakfast offering was mediocre (most guests in larger quarters would prepare their own). The grounds are the hotel's real plus. On above rating I would actually say 4 1/2 stars.

We really enjoyed our stay at A Place in the Sun. The grounds were gorgeously landscaped with beautiful flowers, the rooms were spacious and lovely, and the pool was refreshing. The staff gets an A+! When I realized that I had forgotten my favorite pillow in my room, they immediately mailed it to me. We felt like we were in a little piece of Palm Springs paradise as we lounged by the pool and the kids swam. We'll definitely be back!
