Restful and CovenientPosted 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 INSIDEPosted 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 workPosted 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....

15 year anniversary get away!!!!!Posted Jan 26, 2015
Pros: We loved the guitarist playing music poolside in the evening and the fire pits.
Cons: I think they should take in consideration peoples special request without charging more $$$$. Make it special.
Location: Its close to downtown and clubs. We first went on the palm springs tram to have a romantic dinner @ the Peaks Restaurant. Then went dancing.
The hotel staff was very friendly and pleasant when we arrived. We only stay one night (Saturday). When I booked the room on Expedia I then called the hotel to inform them that it was our anniversary and could we get a early checking in. The receptionist was very nice and said she would make a note of it but couldn't guarantee it. We arrived at 12 noon and the room was ready. I asked if they could put us in a room facing the pool. The lady at the front desk said they didn't have any rooms available that faced the pool. I then asked were was our room? She said it would be facing the street. I told her that wouldn't work its our anniversary. I then said to her, I would be willing to pay more money for a room facing the pool. She looked again and found us a room that faced the pool and said it would only be 45.00 dollars more. We asked to see the location of both rooms. We ended up picking the pool facing room. I feel it was pretty crappy and bad business that I had to pay more money for a pool facing room. Specially since they knew we were celebrating our 15 year anniversary.

Lovely hotel, great locationPosted Jan 24, 2015
Pros: I like everything about this hotel; the rooms are awesome, the design is slick, the pool is great, food is great, staff is great.
Location: The location is perfect for a stay in Palm Springs. You can walk to the main street where you can find bars, shops and restaurants.
Love The Viceroy in Palm Springs. We arrived and were taken to the cutest one bedroom villa, it had a little bathroom and separate shower area; it was super stylish and comfortable. We noticed early on that we had no hot water. The staff tried to rectify the problem, but we went one day with cold water only. They upgraded us to a sweet villa with a kitchen, tub and living room. It was beautiful! The staff at the hotel are super helpful and kind. I look forward to staying here again soon!

Great location, tired roomPosted Jan 13, 2015
Pros: Location, staff
Cons: Guest room needs to be updated for this price point
The location of this hotel is great and the staff was superb but the room itself was beyond disappointing. We booked a regency king studio and it was very run down (carpet had tears in it, bathtub faucet leaked, walls needed repainting, etc.) and somewhat dirty (stains on the one chair in the room, stains on the bathroom walls, etc.). Not worth the price we paid and would not recommend.

Nice hotel, great locationPosted Dec 29, 2014
friendly staffs, valet parking is included (in resort fee), as other people reviewed, it needs some face lift- but it has nice qualities- staffs are friendly, the bed is comfy, size of the room I stayed was decent, great location- one step out- you are surrounded by great restaurants and cute shops.

Great PS Hidden Gem for CouplesPosted Dec 24, 2014
The Viceroy PS is a great blend of style, comfort, convenience for the desert spa and relaxation experience. The grounds are lovely, multiple pools and spas; Estrella Spa top rate services. Citron restaurant and bar provides all one needs to be nourished, entertain guests with excellent, efficient staff, 24/7. Downtown is just a block or so away by foot if the desire to leave the Viceroy happens to arise. We like it.

Good but not great.Posted Dec 1, 2014
Pros: Great service! Excellent food at Citron.
Cons: General facilities and rooms need repair and better up keep. Some of the fabric awnings were dirty, there were a lot of cracks in the pavement.
Location: We really enjoyed hiking the Museum Trail and dinner at Copley's.
My husband and I stayed at the Viceroy for a family retreat. It was OK. Service was great, but more work needs to be put into the up keep. The bathtub in our room had patched up holes under the faucet that were beginning to separate and the couch smelled. Definitely not what we expected to see while paying over $300/night.
