We traveled from out-of-state to be married in Palm Springs. The East Canyon couldn't have been a better choice for our wedding. Richard and his experienced staff were extremely helpful during the weeks preceding our event and the whole time we were there. Their organizational skills and attention to detail were essential to enable us to make plans from a distance. They hosted a beautiful cocktail party the evening before our wedding at which our guests and all of the hotel guests attended. The atmosphere and the setting around the pool were ideal and provided an exceptional, laid-back vibe. The wedding ceremony was held at the beautiful fountain area adjoining the pool. Again the hotel guests were invited to share in our special event. It was absolutely beautiful. The hotel staff were consistently professional, gracious and fun! They did an amazing job, and made everyone feel at home. Our guests were extremely impressed with all aspects of the entire weekend.

Everything about the hotel and the property is first-rate. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The common areas are warm and inviting. A very nice breakfast is available each morning in a relaxing, comfortable and friendly setting by the pool. The guests were warm and friendly, and were also having a wonderful time. We have highly recommended the East Canyon to others and will definitely return in the future. Five-plus stars!

This is a very civilised gay hotel resort. Richard has given a lot of thought to what his guests are looking for in this 15-room (mix of suites and doubles) complex and has been highly successful in anticipating their wishes. The room (we had a junior suite) is perfectly furnished with a very comfortable bed, relaxing L-shaped settee, plenty of storage, and contemporary bathroom with a great walk-in shower. The breakfast – continental plus – is excellent. The general feel of the place - around the pool and common lounge – is very relaxing. And Richard and his colleagues are really great hosts – very friendly and full of helpful advice and local tips. This is one of the nicest gay resorts that we have stayed at and cannot recommend it enough.

Second visit in 4 months and pleased. Good private location that is close enough to walk to town bars and restaurants. Clean rooms, polite staff and a great message. There is no Fitness center nor Room Service but they do not bill themselves as that type of resort. A fine stop for adult gay men.
I will be back.
(there is no fitness center and I can't seem to remove the dot from this app...)

Room Tip: Wouldlikely request ground floor next time just to not bother dealing with steps and luggage. Otherwise, rooms appeared consistent from both visits.

A beautiful, relaxing, well-appointed and tranquil place with a very warm welcome extended by Richard and his team. Leisurely breakfasts, sunning ourselves round the palm-fringed pool, spa treatments and a fantastically comfortable, spacious room. And all within easy reach of Palm Springs and its many attractions. What more could we want? Looking forward to our next visit already.

We went to East Canyon because of recommendation of friends who had visit several times before. It was as good as they described. We liked the no "clothing optional" policy, The staff was friendly and made us feel very welcome. The breakfast was very good. Excellent coffee, just to my liking. We were surprised to find that a wedding was happening on the weekend we were there. We watched from stairs above. We were invited to the reception afterwards. Other guests were friendly. Great jacuzzi and pool. Enjoyed a drink by the pool each evening.
