At the last minute, Larry got us in for two nights and we decided to stay a 3rd! (During Coachella) The vibe here is chill, private, and they set you up with all kinds of perks! Maria greeted us with wine and cold drinks, snacks are in your room (no charge), a complimentary community full kitchen stocked with everything you'd...

The Hotel California is the ultimate quiet, charming oasis in Palm Springs. Management and staff (Larry, Betty, Maria, Mike and the rest of the gang) go above and beyond to make guests feel like family. The rooms are spacious - but who stays inside? The pool and courtyard are where you will spend your day and relax long into the...

We had an amazing restful getaway, our second time visiting Hotel California. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. Our room was clean and comfortable. Time by the pool, fresh fruit and coffee readily available, meeting other guests, great location with nearby shopping.

What an amazing treat to find this little gem. I could go on and on about Larry, Maria, Betty, Mike and the hotel. Just when you think "I forgot" or "I wish I had" it is right there. This has become our new home away from home and can't wait to go back. Betty was on the phone when I...

This was our second stay at Hotel California and it was as relaxing and easy as the first time. This boutique hotel has everything to make your stay as comfortable and effortless as possible. Located slightly removed from the hustle and bustle, noise and crowds of the central downtown area, it is still less than 5 minutes drive to whatever...

We booked our accomodation for one night, last minute. As soon as we arrived and walked through the front gates, I said to my husband that we needed to stay longer. (And we did!). The property was amazing, and the service even better! You are made to feel at home and part of the family. An easy going, comfortable place...
