    After reading some reviews about the hotel i was a little concerned on the cleanliness of the rooms but the price was just right so i took my chances and I'm happy to say that we had a pleasant stay here. The front desk staff was very friendly and welcoming. Our room was just perfect, very clean and was located right in front of the pool area where we were able to relax and catch some sun while the kids swam around in their heated pool. Breakfast was pleasantly good and the kids loved their waffles. Overall it was a wonderful weekend and we will definitely be returning.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is in a great location if you want some R and R. It was away from downtown so it was very quiet and peaceful. It was surrounded by mountains so matter where u were the view was amazing.

Given the limited time, I would recommend the following: In JTNM, visit Cottonwodd Spring (about 6 or 7 miles off the 10 Fwy) and take any of the trailheads and hike amongst the boulders. It is my favorite area in the park and very surreal and prehistoric looking. Or, you can just drive the park. While in Palm Springs, take the aerial tram to the peak of Mt. San Jacinto. The drop-off from the peak to the valley floor in PS is the steepest on the North American Continent. Or, you could stop in Indio and visit Shields Date Farm, where you can watch the never ending, looped film" Sex Life of a Date," which has been running continuously since the 1930's. Very quirky. Enjoy.

Travel Tips for Palm Springs

Palm Springs Architecture

by Martinewezel

In the museum of art we learned about the Palm Springs architecture odf the 50's and the 60's. Clean lines, simple designs, soaring roofs, large windows... eclectic and exentric.

We were especially charmed by the buildings of Albert Frey, the in 1939 Swiss-born architect. He first was a Le Corbusier disciple and later designed Palm Springs landmarks like Palm Springs City Hall (1957), Palm Springs Aerial Tramway Valley Station (1963), Tramway Gas Station (1965), and his own glass and metal home (1963) high above Tahquitz Canyon Way. From the inner courtyard in thge Coyote Inn, where we stayed, we had a view over this house from Albert Frey. It's one of the houses which are typical for the mid century modernism, so typical for Palm Springs.

See also the tip (must do) about the Visitor Center for another poto of a building of Albert Frey.

Hard to Say......

by malianrob

We usually comein the summertime and it get very very hot. Around 112 degrees to 120. I always travel light when I come. A few bathing suits a sarong, some shorts,t-shirts and slippers. At night people tend to dress up alittle to go out to dinnerso a nce evening outfit is good. I just discovered the Aerial Tramway. I always avoided it because I always thought it would be too hot to hike or d anything strenuous in this heat. I found out that it is ALOT cooler on the mountain. So if you decide to do this, take some hiking shoes and a warm jacket. Take tons of sun block because you will need it if you come in the summertime. When it is not summer time it can get pretty windy here so bring a coat or jacket.

Welwood Murray Memorial Library Historical Marker

by Yaqui

In 1938 George Welwood Murray donated this land to provide for a library as a memorial to his father, Welwood Murray pioneer hotel operator. Cornelia white donated an additional strip of property on the eastern end of the site. The existing structure, designed by John Porter Clark and constructed by Charles Chamberlin, opened as the first permanent home of the Palm Springs Public Library in Fegruary 1941. With the completion of the Library Center at Sunrise Plaza in October 1975 the Welwood Murray Memorial Library became the downtown branch.

Restaurant Week

by GracesTrips about Once a Year

This is something new I have seen all over the United States. Various cities will participate in a "restaurant week" once or twice a year. It allows the patron to try a prix fixe meal at a very reasonable price. The prix fixe meal usually includes choices from the restaurant's regular menu to give you an idea of what they serve.

I like the concept and will seek out the opportunity to participate whenever I can.

by karinhanover

My friends and I did a safari tour with Elite Land Tours in Palm Springs last week - it was fabulous! We saw some endangered wild cats including two beautiful Siberian Tigers - highly endangered we learned! There were two golden asian leoprads that leaped on our Hummers - we got incredible photos! This tour is a "must do" if you love the BIG cats!
