Pros: Great simple easy looks fantastic!
Pros: Ran downCons: Clean better......Replace old dated furniture..... new paint
Will be back! Pros: The concierge, Lynne, made our stay special! She is super friendly, accommodating and thoughtful. The hotel has everything you need! Pool and oustside activities were very resort-like, and the bar/restaurant on site was perfect for a happy hour start to our night out! Our next stay we plan on using their gym and cruisers to explore PS. Also loved the Buz Bus stop right outside front door. Had a great stay and will be back!
Cons: The bar closing at 11 PM was rather frustrating when we were trying to get together as a group and catch up with people
Still love this place, but losing its edge? Pros: Still got that retro funky sense of style. Great pool (DJ was really good). Still more affordable than other hip spots around. Spacious, simple rooms. Hotel staff was super helpful. Cons: Almost never any towels available at the pool. Drink service at the pool was dodgy at best. The hotel bar closed at 11:00pm on a Saturday night (had to do a Ralphs run for beer). Construction going on. Kids running around.
Pros: Great facial and good pool scene. The room service was yummy and super fast.Cons: The elevator broke the day we got there. Things in certain areas looked run down.
I would call it fun and colorful, I would not callPros: cool vibe. Seems like a great place to party. colorful. Cons: el jefe was el overpriced. we live in LA so we shouldn't have been surprised by the prices, and were still shocked by the lack of value.
Pros: Nothing stands out Cons: The pool is murky. They absolutely should not allow pool goers that are not staying at the hotel. Drain the pool & start over! The rooms are NOT "suites". Also, what defines boutique? The colors are cool, the concept was executed but the staff & locals that frequent the pool are not keeping it classy.
Pros: I liked the look of the place all the bright colors Cons: While I was asleep my husband woke up to find bugs in our bed! We told the front desk and they offered us new sheets we left and when we called the manager Anna she was dismissive and rude!
Pros: Nice open patio. Hummingbirds everywhere. Cons: If I knew my room was at the foot of the staircase I would have said no way. Now I know to ask.
Pros: great pool, basic rooms, older hotel but done nicely, food was good and a fun vibe all round, supermarket across the road. Cons: emailed for info prior to arrival but no reply, smoking policy not well in-forced.
best bang for your buckPros: The Saguaro personifies Palm Springs- the colors, atmosphere, overall vibe. 2 of my girlfriends and I used it as a home base for the weekend, during which we had several parties to attend. It's location makes it prime, the deal we got on Kayak was uncomparable with the other 4 stars in the area. Clean, spacious, love the fridge in the room! Pool of course, is top 3 in the city. Also, EL JEFE has some of the most delish and forward thinking cuisine in town. At a reasonable price! I would eat there even without the convenience of staying there....goat cheese wrapped in eggplant? YES PLEASECons: Elevator was down in our tower during our stay, which was the only downside to our stay- lugging our bags to the 3rd floor during the hottest day of the week sucked, but luckily we are able-bodied and unbothered, may not have been as easily overlooked by older clients or clients with kids. We were told it was being fixed,hopefully soon!
