Don’t stay here! Don’t let the pics and rating fool you!!!
We booked the Christopher Kennedy room for 3 nights. We arrived around 7pm.
The room is very budget looking (cheap looking and cheaply furnished) and smelled strongly of urine (gross)! Bathroom tiny and fan was broken and made loud noise. It felt like staying in someone’s basement. The whole property is depressing looking - definitely not high-end or even retro-charming. We immediately asked to be moved and fortunately they had a room at their sister property next door - the La Serena Villas. La Serena is nicer but read my review first before booking there.
We loved the Del Marcos Hotel! The staff were very friendly and helpful and went out of their way to make sure we had a great first experience at their hotel. The room was nice and clean, as was the pool area and the common spaces. We enjoyed the free breakfast items, the happy hour drinks, and the bicycles as much and as often as we could. The food at the sister property was fantastic, too!
We had a short but fabulous stay at Del Marcos Hotel! Wonderful breakfasts, daily Happy Hour, .. we loved the (small) boutique scale of the hotel... embracing mountain views and oriented around a pool encircled by loungers. The suites were equipped with all the amenities you need. Our suite even included a patio with tub under the stars --- if we'd stayed another night we would have loved to use it! The hotel is also conveniently situated -- steps to Museums, shops, restaurants, essentially 'the main drag'. The hotel was quiet, cozy, and furnished to reflect the wonderful ever present Modernist vibe that Palm Springs radiates. The hosts & staff were friendly and helpful. We'd go back in a heartbeat...
From the Welcome email telling us what to expect to arrival and leaving everything was perfect. The staff are all super friendly and always asked if everything was going well. The pool and location from room was perfect. We had fun meeting others that were there and everyone just had fun... the drinks at happy hour were a hit! Dinner next door at Azucar at La Serena Villas was AMAZING! We plan to make this our spot on our future visits to Palm Springs!!
Excellent oasis on our California road trip. Stopped between Las Vegas and San Diego and it was well worth it. Stayed in the Errol Flynn room and would highly recommend. Outside seating area and away from the noise of the pool. Would recommend hotel and will book again when in California
