Review of Hotel Palm Springs Rendezvous, Palm Springs


1950s feel, fine accommodation, great food


Our family (two adults and a teen) normally is not into bed & breakfast establishments but when their reviews are better than most of luxury hotels on site we make an exception. We happened to this with the Rendezvous and weren’t disappointed. It is – as stated on their homepage – a perfect

combination of hotel and bed & breakfast.

The hotel is close to restaurant and shopping facilities, maybe 5 minutes by car. The property was restored to its 1950s splendour which is quite a sight. All the rooms are themed; we had the Crooners Room for the adults and the Hawaiian Surf for our son. The original feel was retained but modern conveniences were added. The rooms are not exactly luxurious but have all the comfort that it is needed. It is extremely relaxing to lie in the deck chairs around the pool and to enjoy the 1950’s atmosphere, especially when the complimentary martins and the scrumptious appetizers are served.

Very much appreciated was also the delicious 3 course gourmet breakfast including a freshly prepared smoothie, a fruit dish and a main course, either sweet or savoury. Everything was fabulous and we were indulging in this treat! Jake, one of the hosts, was at our disposal for any information we might have needed. He was friendly and helpful without being intrusive.

On balance, a very enjoyable stay and we would return there without hesitation. If we lived close by we would rent the whole place for festivity purposes; it would be the ideal place for example a birthday party!

Date of stay: July 2011
