So Wednesday our friends invited us to join them for dinner at The Barn and Kitchen in the SPARROW LODGE here in Palm Springs. We have been wanting to go for months, but I am more of a spur of the moment type of person, and you must book this restaurant in advance due to the family style seating once...

I still talk about how much I loved staying at this place. We stayed here for 3 days, and then at The Parker, which was over 3x as much money, for the following 3 days for a work event. After a terrible first night at The Parker, due to noise and a dirty accommodations, we actually called Sparrow's Lodge to...

Stayed here last year on a quick getaway weekend with my boyfriend. Everything detail about the place was great. The pool area is chill. The rooms are rustic luxury. The food was fantastic. Would go back in a heartbeat.

This may, or may not, be a great hotel. I will never know -- bc I cancelled my reservation once I noticed the trap that they set for me. They have a $36 mandatory resort fee. But they don't quote it in the daily price. They don't quote it when they tell you about the cancellation policy or the deposit...

The Sparrows Lodge is the most fabulous. I've spent many holidays throughout my life in Palm Springs and this hotel is at the top of the list when it comes to luxury and relaxation. I stayed at the hotel in December with my Boyfriend. The rooms are warm and delicious with natural materials like wood and stone. The beds were...

This place is a refreshing change from the usual PS vibe. I came for a 3 day solo stay for quiet and sunshine and it was perfect. It really feels like an oasis in the desert! Lots of shady or sunny places to relax outdoors make it a place you want to hang out in. It's rustic but still modern,...

Sparrows Lodge was recommended to me as a lunch spot by my mother-in-law, so I decided to try it with two friends while visiting Palm Springs. I called ahead to make sure we could get a table for lunch, and this began an exchange with the maitre d' that was almost funny, he was so rude. First he told me...

This place is truly unique and has everything one is looking for to decompress from everyday life. Rooms perfectly utilize space and become your only sanctuary with private back patio and front area to relax. The staff is amazing! You can truly see how much they love what they are doing. I had wanted to stay here...for a long time!...

This is a review of the restaurant not the hotel. We've eaten there for lunch three times in the last two months. At this point we wouldn't go back. The service is ridiculously slow and the food is just ok. For example recently I ordered the greens with parmesan and it was so under-dressed with salad dressing, it was like...

Calm music and incense surround you at this quiet retreat. It's a great place to unwind from the day to day turmoil of life. Rooms are rustic but very clean. Fresh towels, water and snacks are brought to you every evening in a basket. We loved the pool area, the courtyard, fire pit, garden and most of all the helpful...
