Everyone there was so friendly and welcoming, you felt more like you were staying with friends and family or a BnB than a hotel. The courtyard is beautiful and lush with fragrant flowers, vines and a gurgling fountain. Plenty of seating, towels and sunscreen available by the heated pool. We took advantage of hanging at the hot tub in the...

From the moment you enter through the gate to the time you leave...wonderful! This has become our go-to place while attending the Film Noir festival. There is a guest kitchen where you could prepare meals. However, they provide fresh coffee, fruit and red licorice.

Our first stay in Palm Springs and we're so pleased we followed the reviews on Tripadvisor and found this absolute gem. We were visiting from the UK to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and this was the place to do it in style. We loved it! Maria, Mike and Betty made us so welcome and catered for our every need....

Hotel California is a small boutique hotel on Palm Canyon Drive. It is not only located in a great place, the hotel itself is the epitome of what makes a boutique hotel fantastic. The pool is walk-in warm but refreshing. The grounds have little nooks and cozy spots to sit and chat day or night, with overhanging flowering vines, banana...

Since having discovered this gem, about 3 years ago, we have become more & more fond of it. The family-operated philosophy puts guests at ease and feeling comfortable from the moment we arrive. The owner, Larry, and the staff (including Mike , Jay, Betty and the newer, but very welcoming Maria & Gilda) just set the bar high as far...

What can be said for a hotel that has such wonderful reviews. Hotel California feels less like a hotel and more like a friendly relative's home, a relative you like to visit that is. It is not plush like a Four Seasons, but then again the Four Seasons isn't giving you free HBO, Showtime, free snacks and, yes please enjoy...
