The hotel itself is beautiful--very private with pool, hot tub, grills to use, well-supplied kitchen and relaxing room with DVDs, magazines, etc. But the best part of this hotel is the staff! They were personal without being...

This is what i would consider a boutique hotel with only 15...

It is quite unlike any...

Staying at the Hotel California was at the suggestion of one of my wife's co-workers. This is our first time to Palm Springs. The moment we arrived we were greeted by Jay--he was helping another guest--he looks at me and my wife and he says, "hey you came in the wrong door. I'm busy helping this guy. Want a beer...
