What a delightful place to stay!!! This hotel was probably built in the 50's but has been completely renovated but the old world charm remains. I stayed in Lucille Ball's room - the room Lucille Ball apparently stayed in year after year in the 50's. It had a huge living room, kitchen, bathroom and large bedroom. I also saw several other rooms that were exceptionally large, each having a little kitchen, great linens and high end shampoo, body wash products in showers. The hotel offers brand new vintage bicycles you can use to sight see around the area. The hotel has a lovely pool and hot tub in a setting sounded with beautiful mature landscaping.. The hotel is just a short 3 block walk to the main street of old Palm Springs, close to great restaurants and fun night life. I was there during a great Street Fair with over 100 artisans and great food booths. The hotel staff is exceptionally nice and very helpful. It is one of those places that you will want to return to again and again.
