Hello I hope you can help.
We intend to cash in some supermarket (!!) loyalty points we have accumulated to pay for our hotel and have been offered the following choices for the same number of points in central Palm Springs:
Riviera Palm Springs, Ace Hotel, Hotel Zoso.
Location wise Zoso looks to be best place for walking to a choice of restaurants in the evening. Riviera however looks the nicest. I've kind of ruled out the Ace Hotel already as it looks too young and hip for us!! (although we are only in our 40's).
We don't expect to spend full days at the hotel, but may find ourselves with a spare hour or so to usethe pool, so that is not really a consideration. Also we prefer peace and quiet after around 11pm, I keep reading about the "scene" at Riviera thats putting me off. We understand we will be stung for a resort fee and parking at all three so again not a suitable factor for a decision. We are coming Monday 17th September for 5 nights.
Can anyone provide any feedback to help us make a decision?
Secondly, we will be driving from San Diego on Monday morning. Am I right in thinking that leaving the old town area of SD and driving out to Palm Springs Monday will be us heading against the general flow of traffic? We intend to drive to the outlets in Cabazon before we hit Palm Springs - leaving SD at about 9am how long should that journey take?
Thanks in Advance.
