Loved, loved loved everything about this gem. The rooms are rock star decorated and so different than any normal hotel experience. The place backs onto a private lake which is a great place to enjoy a few minutes in the morning sun. Staff are awesome, very polite and helpful. It's a hidden gem situated in this crazy little oasis but...

The Chateau is a "fancy" place but not really for us. It is tightly squeezed into a residential area behind a commercial street on a man-made lake surrounded by McMansions. We did not book the nicest rooms, but they are apparently luxurious and seem to be to the liking of most guests. We were looking for a comfortable place in...

This boutique type of hotel is in a quiet area very close to restaurants, shopping, and hiking. The staff is very helpful, friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed my time there and will definitely return.

This hotel is two stories with no elevator so be sure to reserve a first floor inside room unless you are patient to have the staff carry your bags upstairs. The room is large enough with a walk in shower and separate large bath. Only the toilet is in a separate room, so the sinks are out in the open...

We are in a superior room with a view of the lake and the mountain. The room is large and very clean. The bed is nice and soft. The hotel has a restaurant on the lake. It was about 60 degrees out but they have heaters and fireplaces around the space. Great view of the lake. A little expensive.

How special to find such a beautiful Chateau on a lake. This is a boutique hotel with fabulous views of a lake in a upscale residential area. The building looks like it came straight out of the French Riviera. Everything is top quality with lovely, beautiful decor. The bistro with a lakefront patio and an outdoor wood-burning pizza oven overlooks...

What a breath of fresh air for The Palm Springs area. Situated on a quiet man made lake, it was beautiful and peaceful. Our room was outstanding with French doors leading to a private patio, since the side walls were hedges, and a beautiful view of the lake. The outdoor Chairs were so comfortable too. Would definitely stay here again!...

We stayed in The Chateau for 2 days while travelling through California. The room was spacious, beautifully decorated and exceptionally clean. We had a balcony that looked out on to the lake and it was lovely to sit out in the dessert sun watching the turtles and fish in the lake. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to eat in...

We made the reservation months ahead and were waiting for a relaxing visit. They had cancelled our reservation for an obviously well paying wedding and we were literally thrown out at check-in to Indian Wells Resort Hotel, that is in an another category. Except for the service, which was terrible at 'The Chateau'. We felt cheated and very disappointed. They...

Great place! My only issue would be there were no chairs in the room. Just a small little table that was kind of useless. We brought the patio chairs in from outside. Other than that great place, nice room and wonderful staff and service
