A little Run Down - Great service

Posted Apr 28, 2015
Cons: Really look after the cleanliness, with white flooring and white everything it can look dirty
Location: Cheekys is great for brunch!
a little overrated in terms of facilities - Amazing staff !!! - The rooms look a little bit old, they just did a coat of paint and added some furniture that has seen better days, the staff was great, the bed is comfy.

Theb Avalon is a great hotel in downtown Palm Spri

Posted Apr 24, 2015
Pros: We thoroughly enjoyed our room, the grounds, the quiet atmosphere, the cleanliness, the friendly staff and the close proximity of downtown.
Cons: An upgrade of the shower/bathtub would be a great improvement.
Location: WE enjoyed shopping, eating in fine restaurants and going to a tavern to meet local people.
The staff greeted us with a warm welcome. We were early to register but discovered our room was ready and had been upgraded from a premium studio to a cottage suite. We were promptly escorted to our accommodations and were brought ice at our request. Through our entire stay we were treated courteously. Room service was prompt. We were told many fine restaurants were located within walking distance which they were. I am disabled and am only able to walk short distances but found I was able to walk to the restaurants, shops and bars easily. The pools were clean and well maintained. The food was excellent, generous and reasonably priced, the times we ate at the hotel. The cleaning staff was always available to service our room when we requested service. We usually do not require a change of sheets and towels and did not find we needed them here for our four day stay. The beds are extremely comfortable and assured us of a good night's sleep, especially for a person with back problems. There was always someone available for help if needed. The room was quiet and we were not disturbed by other guests, groundspersons, or the cleaning staff. We had a very enjoyable stay at the Avalon and would like to return again if we return for a vaction in Palm Springs.

Unfortunately Time Warner Cable had taken over the hotel in a retro fit operation. Guests were angry as we were unaware this was to happen. The manager Sean Najarro handled my situation very professionally exceeding expectations in terms of making some concession on the billing. Happy to return next year!!!!

Viceroy 3-2015

Posted Mar 24, 2015
I was given a room with a fake window and half street walkway window with a a view of any peeping Tom and an electrical box....Room #301. The door to the vestibule did not lock and faced the parking lot. The key device was no longer working. I spoke to the desk about the lack of safety and I got the deer in he head light look. I take offense to this as a single traveler as I actually have to pay more for a suite. If they give you room #301, find another hotel. DC

Restful and Covenient

Posted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: Nice decor, privacy, a very toney atmosphere but not snobby.
Cons: Wifi was non-existent in our room, but we were told that they were upgrading.
Location: Downtown - close to all
While our room was quite modest, the atmosphere at the Viceroy is pampered, private and restful. Great drinks and appetizers, two pools, lots of amenities in the hotel room.

NICE ON OUTSIDE, ROTTEN INSIDE

Posted Feb 20, 2015
ROOM NEEDED MAJOR REFRESH. OLD, STAINED AND FRAYED CARPETS AND FURNITURE. SHOWER WAS SIZE OF A SHOWER MAT WITH NO ROOM TO MOVE AROUND OR PLACE SOAP OR TOILETRIES EXCEPT ON FLOOR. TOILET CLOGGED SEVERAL TIMES AND ROOM SMELLED LIKE CRAP ALL WEEKEND. GROUNDS AND LOCATION NEXT TO MOUNTAIN ARE BEAUTIFUL AND SAVING GRACE

Needs some work

Posted Feb 11, 2015
Pros: The bell boys were very friendly and helpful.
Cons: The rooms and bathrooms need an update
We have enjoyed our stays at other Viceroy properties and have come to expect the brand to deliver a great experience. This hotel disappointed on many levels. The room was very tired. I have experienced a better bathroom at some gas stations. To be more specific - the shower water was impossible to regulate and it had a shower curtain. A four star hotel should not have a shower curtain. Our room had one window that looked out on to a busy guest walk way. Therefore, the dingy curtain had to remain closed in sunny Palm Springs for our entire stay to maintain our privacy. The worst part of the stay occurred upon exiting our room on the first morning. We were greeted by a dead bird. We alerted the staff. Upon our return to the room an hour later after breakfast, the bird was still there. In fairness, the staff was friendly - they were just not responsive.

Wonderful slice of "Old Palm Springs"

Posted Feb 5, 2015
Pros: The hotel and grounds date back to 1929, with mature landscaping and privacy.
Cons: The signage is very discreet, the hotel is difficult to find-the GPS directed us to the street behind it. Perhaps another sign on the valet podium?
Location: Downtown Palm Springs....what's not to do?
The hotel and grounds were delightful-even if the facilities in the room were somewhat retro, or maybe because of that. Due to other circumstances, our stay wasn't as long as we'd like, but we'll definitely be back....
