This was our first trip to Palm Springs, and it will not be our last. We were looking on TripAdvisor and Yelp for a place to stay that was dog friendly, and decided to give Avanti a try. We could not be happier with the results.
We received an email from Joey asking when we planned to arrive. I gave him a 2 hour window, and there were no issues. They provide you with all of their contact information in case you come and the front door is locked (it always is, but there's a doorbell) and they are out of earshot of the doorbell. At check-in they have a great selection of local restaurant and antique brochures, and also pet sitter brochures. We loved the welcome sign they had ready for our dog, as well as the fresh water (for the pups and humans!).
The property is gorgeous. It is perfect for a Palm Springs vacation. There's a great BBQ and hot tub area. The pool area is so nice, and just a few short steps from the rooms. They keep a cooler stocked with sodas and waters for all times. There is a large selection of current issues of all sorts of magazines, board and card games, swim and sun bathing products/supplies, and even a container of rice to dehydrate your phone if needed! The breakfast spread is great (bagels, english muffins, toast, cereal, fruit, oatmeal, the list goes on! plus lots of choices of juice, coffee, tea, and Justin's peanut butter AND nutella!). Each afternoon they do a happy hour from 5-6 (if you're in the pool, Jim will even send your drink to you in one of their little pool floaties). The misters, comfy chairs, soft towels, and large umbrellas make it pleasant all day. Plus there's a fire pit. They also provide towels just for your dog. There are bikes (for free!) for you to take out about the town, and there is free wi-fi.
The rooms are absolutely beautiful, spotless, and so chic. The bathroom was great (rain shower!) and the Ecru products were perfect. They have hardwood everywhere. Each room has its own private patio area. And they provide you with robes and a hanging shoe organizer. They also provide you with plenty of snacks and bottles of water, a set of melamine tumblers, and your own bar tools (shaker, shot glass, and corkscrew/bottle opener). They even provide treats for your pup. As well as a sheet for your pup to lie on the bed, and their own water bowl. We found the double sets of thick curtains blocked out all the sun. The A/C was plenty powerful to cool the room. It's a bit loud, but really no more than any other wall unit (we had no issues sleeping with it on). Plus they have fans in the rooms as well. We loved the old-school keys! The whole property is very peaceful, quiet, and serene.
There's plenty of parking in the area, and there were nice condos and other hotels right there. We walked our dog frequently. They provide doggie bags in the grassy area out front, as well.
Finally, the owners and staff are beyond wonderful. And so is Cad the Avanti mascot! They are so attentive and friendly, had the best recommendations for restaurants and (pet friendly!) things to do around town. They really take great care of this place, we cannot wait to come back. It is the most relaxing vacation we have had!
