“Very nice hotel in a great location”
Reviewed 5 April 2012 via mobile

Stayed 3 nights and apart from a noisy AC unit which was dealt with promptly by the front desk and maintenance people, all good. The room was spacious and clean, King deluxe with pool view, in fairness it was school holiday time and the pool area was busy all day. Interesting colour schemes abound with a very definite bias to orange but it all works well. We only took the breakfast buffet which was fine although the serving area could be bigger when busy its quite cosy! The serving team were quite attentive throughout, no complaints. The parking and wi-fi charges are not inclusive. Would stay here again.

Stayed March 2012

While the hotel was beautiful, the service was horrid. Understaffed and untrained.
We were a group of 12. Sitting by the pool having lunch took forever. Food was medicore. I finally got up and went to the bar to get a coffee refill. Someone sitting there advised me that the bartender had an attitude. I was unable to get another cup. My wife went downstairs to request a shower cap and was told someone would bring it to the room immediately. Never showed up. The buffet breakfast was another nightmare. The one and only woman making omelets was overwhelmed. After waiting 15 minutes on line for my omelet, she gave it to someone else. The busboy (waiter?) was taking dishes from us as we were eating. One night we came back from a restaurant around 10PM and there were no parking spots (they charge to park). The valet told us to go around the corner and park in an auxillary lot. To get back my wife had to walk over a pitch black sand dune in her heels. The maid never left a second bar of soap in the room. All the apologies from the front desk do nothing to mitigate the lack of professionalism by the staff. Also there is a disco nearby and the noise in our room was loud.

Room Tip: make sure your room overlooks the pool

I looked for one of the top hotels thinking "You get what you pay for" payed more that I usually would spend for a hotel room. First room we were assigned was one of the worse roof view no balcony had them move us and sure enough there were more available got a better one but not what I expected. Pool side service was dreadful waited for a drink for over an hour I thought it was maybe just that day but it was the same for the three days we stayed ended up getting us drinks ourselves. Always had to ask for towels, and coffee for the for the room.

Room Tip: You will not get what you request even with plently of head of time reservation.

Please accept our most sinere apologies for the poor service you received at our pool during your recent stay, we should have been better prepared for the Spring break season we are in.

We hope this isolated incident will not deter you from choosing our hotel again should your travels bring you back to Palm Springs.

We have just got back from staying in the Renaissance and found it to be a lovely clean hotel with friendly staff. We were surprised and pleased when entering our room to find that we had been upgraded. while we were there it was spring break and yes there were collage kids staying in the hotel but have to say heard no parties going on or loud noise in the evenings. On the saturday they had 3 weddings on and again heard nothing from them also a conference was taking place thatyou would not have known about apart from seeing then walk throurgh the pool area.

lovely clean pool with plenty of beds by the pool, did have to go and ask for more towels two days in a row.

The only negative I have is the waiting staff could be a bit more attentive as a few times we were waiting for a while before some one came to take our order. they seemed to be standing around talking and the bar area was not busy inside or out.

Free wifi in the rooms would be a bounus, most other hotels seem to be able to offer this!!!

This is a very comfortable, nice hotel close to downtown palm springs, maybe about 5 to 10 minute walk to all the shops and restaurants. Front desk staff and the bell staff are very nice, poolside staff were "ok." The pool area was very nice for lounging, swimming, and drinking some very nice frosty cold cocktails. In the evening they have a really nice gas flame powered fire pit where you can sit and drink cocktails and soak in the warm Palm Springs air. Overall we were very pleased with the service, and we had a very nice and comfortable stay.

Very comfortable stay with helpful and friendly staff. Highly recommend the spa where I had an amazing massage after being lucky enough to get an appointment within an hour's notice. I had a very quiet room overlooking the mountains, despite the long walk from the elevator! Pool area is lovely and lots of seating both in the out of the sun, outdoors and indoors. Free shuttle to/from the airport which is handy if you are renting a car...but be ready for the enslaught of conversation from one of the drivers...not sure I've ever met anyone who talks so fast and so much!! Would definately stay here again.
