Sparrow's Lodge is nothing short of perfection down to the smallest of details. The rooms are gorgeous (with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in at a hotel!), beautifully curated and so relaxing. The Barn Kitchen's food is fresh, delicious and you cannot beat being able to walk from your room to a Michelin restaurant. The team at Sparrow's truly delivered top notch hospitality. They made our trip absolutely amazing and I cannot say enough good things about their service.

Wonderful stay for our business trip. The team was so helpful and the place was beautiful! We had some very early mornings and they were more than accommodating to ensure everything went smoothly. I also got a lovely massage from Steven who is so knowledgeable and great!

What a cool place. Sparrows Lodge just has a great vibe. The rooms were great, very comfortable. However, the grounds and it's restaurant (the Barn Kitchen) are what makes Sparrows Lodge such a memorable experience. The food is excellent and the garden setting is very chill, retro-chic. We stayed there three nights and ate on site two of them (which we never do) because we enjoyed it so much. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

My wife and I stayed at Sparrows Lodge in Palm Springs for her birthday on March 17 and 18th, and we loved this small, intimate boutique hotel. The Lodge was originally built as a barn in 1952, and it still maintains its vintage, rustic charm, while at the same time feeling like an exclusive five star resort. We stayed in a poolside room, which is what I’d recommend. The room was spacious, with a beautiful bathroom and shower, very comfortable queen size bed, and a private patio with wooden fan back chairs and a hammock. And even though it was poolside, it’s so quiet that we never heard a sound from anyone else hanging out by the pool. All the poolside rooms also have two shaded outdoor chaise lounges right outside the room, should you want shade or just more privacy. The pool itself is small but very nice, and seemed to be the perfect temperature. Although it was only around eighty degrees the sun was hot, and I therefore took many dips throughout the day! We had dinner at Sparrows Lodge on the night of my wife’s actual birthday. The food was excellent, and the outdoor patio setting very romantic. But maybe the best thing about this experience was the incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful staff at Sparrows, meaning the general manager Alex, Carolina, Emily and Abby! It’s a very informal vibe with the hotel staff, almost like you’re staying at their private home, and it seems like everyone does everything. For example, Abby was our waitress for dinner, and then later that night when I realized that I inadvertently put in the wrong code for our room safe, deprogramming it so that I couldn’t open it, she came to our room and rectified the safe issue in about two minutes! Big kudos to Alex and his team of happy warriors at Sparrows Lodge for making a great vacation all that much better!

Sparrows Lodge is a downtown Palm Springs property where I was welcomed by a hand painted sign adorned with 2 sparrows. My Garden room, located in the garden section of the facility was a take on a cottage aesthetic and featured a private patio. The chamber gave way to an atmosphere of relaxation and simplicity but I could have brought a steed as my room was outfitted with a horse trough as a bath. The Barn Kitchen is an open-air communal seating restaurant in a poolside setting that whips up a delightful breakfast. Cooking tends towards California simple..........with fresh salads, cauliflower steak with sauce vierge and more........but my favorite was avocado toast at lunch. So, if your looking for a property that maintains it's rustic yet modern feel................then try the.............Sparrows Lodge..........feels like a cottage camp grounds.

We loved Sparrow’s Lodge. No TVs which was great, the place is so relaxing. Nice mellow music all day, beautiful grounds, nice staff. The morning breakfast was substantial. Enjoyed chatting with other guests around the fire pit while making s’mores. We had dinner outside at the Barn Kitchen which we really enjoyed. Short drive to downtown. The only reason I gave it a 4 instead of a 5 is that my husband did not like the room. It is rustic but has a very comfortable bed and the rain shower has fantastic pressure. Lighting is not great in the bathroom, toilet is in a separate closet which was like a cell. Floors are concrete and a bit cold. Overall, I would highly recommend and would definitely return.

This was our sixth stay with the Sparrows Lodge. Each time is special in its own way, and we always love it. Last weekend was for a planned surprise getaway for my husband’s birthday. It rained and was too cool for the pool, but we very much enjoyed the jacuzzi, the delicious buffet breakfast, and our cozy and comfortable room from which we could hear the music of the waterfall just outside our door. The Lodge had upgraded since we were last there, and it seems they managed to fulfill every item on our “wish list” for optimization. Small things do make a difference: a fluffy rug under the bed, a lightweight but warm quilt, the MOST comfortable bed, a perfect leather reading chair with lamp, an umbrella (!), a mini-SMEG with sparkling waters inside, and many other thoughtful touches. The rooms have been painted white now, which has brightened and added warmth. We basically camped out in our room for the weekend — read, a lot, napped, enjoyed the luxurious waterfall shower, and got back to centering and replenishing ourselves in this tranquil setting. On our last morning we enjoyed our breakfast in a lovely common room on the property which has the ultimate in comfy couches and a fireplace. Thank you, dear Sparrows Lodge, for all of your kindness during our stay. Everyone was so gracious and lovely. We will definitely be back!

The Sparrow Lodge is a unique boutique hotel located in Palm Springs, offering a spa like restful retreat. The property does not offer television or radio in the rooms so as to facilitate a relaxing environment, where one can relax from the rigors of work or enjoy the company of family or new met friends. The room boasts a charming tub and waterfall shower with a private patio and hammock. The Sparrow lodge is a unique find that I was not expecting and one I would readily book again.

Fantastic place all around. Gabriel was so kind and helpful...but really everyone was. Great dinner, breakfast, and the grounds are like a retreat. Had a FANTASTIC massage from Steve. I signed up for an hour and he gave me extra time and attention just because I was so tight.. We have traveled a lot and this has been one of our favorites!
