I've been shopping around Palm Springs this summer trying various resorts to replace previous favorites that have been sold and changed. I was seriously pleased with my 3 night stay at Escape. I've already booked another stay for 4 nights. Away from the crazy environment of

"get close to the pool."
"Most rooms have a small patio to themselves which is worth asking for."
"The closer to the pool the better; great scenery!"
"Upgrade to the larger room with a kitchen"
"Two size rooms, king and superior king. I think there are also a few with two queens."
