    Palm Desert is NOT Palm Springs

    by JimTammy Updated May 8, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If the hotel you are booking does not have a Palm Springs address, it is not IN Palm Springs. Many of the large resorts (ie Marriott) advertise for Palm Springs but are actually in other towns. To navigate the other desert cities in the Coachella Valley you must have a car to get place to place. Palm Springs is more of a walking town. Places are fairly close together or short ride.

    Unique Suggestions: Rent a car! So you can come to downtown Palm Springs.

    Fun Alternatives: Find a hotel in Palm Springs. Many great B&B's, small hotels and also full service resorts. For a resort look for the Wyndham, Hyatt, Hilton, Riviera or the Spa Hotel & Casino.

    Went to this place because it looked cute...nothing cute here. Food bad, owner rude and terrible service. When we asked the locals how he stays in business? Tourist!

    Fun Alternatives: Go to Zin for dinner and Phillippes for lunch! Great food at Zin and nice outside dining at Phillippes

  • Palm Springs Rentals

    by Robert1957 Written Aug 16, 2006

    Palm Springs Rentals specializes in Condo rentals.
    They were very unprofessional, told me untruths
    and were very rude when caught lying.
    There are many other fine rental Companies in
    P.S., I would try one of them instead.
