the help were wonderful we are seniors & had to walk miles to our room i think it was 1523
The staff was very helpful, friendly, always there to help. Had to go too far to self park. Weekend hard to find a spot to park . Several parking rows in the parking garage no access to another isle. Had to turn in same isle to go to next isle.
Good location for what we were there for. The room needed updating. It was clean but it was loud. We were in the main building and it was too noisy. Also, beds were very uncomfortable.
The hotel has amazing grounds and public areas. The atrium lobby and gondola service are special, and the overall grounds are the best in the Palm Springs area. The rooms are not clean. There's no other way to say it. I found much evidence of previous guests in the room, from trash on the floor around the beds to dirty showers. The staff is also pretty unpleasant and not helpful.
Great pool scene, probably the best in California.
Clean, and comfy beds. Breakfast provided
Free, made to order breakfast. Friendly staff. Cable tv was not working very well for nights when watching before bed.
Full breakfast Given a room that was "not to be rented out" because of known issues. EG: no heat, TV remote not working. ETC 2nd room had a 1 hr. power failure, next morning again no heat in freezing weather. Sent up first "technician" did not have a clue & eventually sent 2nd "technician who repaired the problem but caused another. The heat never turned off as he broke the thermostat. Front desk personnel less than helpful during our stay!
Friendly staff and quiet room. Dirty carpets and a dead cockroach on the bathroom floor.
Clean Friendly Staff Noisy location Small rooms Need updates
Cooks cooking hot breakfast, larger than normal eating area No Microwave in room. Clock did not work, but no big deal
Delicious hot breakfast to order! No extra fees or local taxes. Beautiful location. Nearby restaurants...Ruth Chris across from hotel. Clean and comfy bed. Enjoyed our stay here. Will come back. Pool closed at 10
Rooms are large. Beautiful public buildings and golf courses. Beds are very comfortable. Excellent Fitness Center. Checkin was difficult for one friend who came in late and the Front Desk made be wake up at Midnight and come to Front Desk and turn in a voucher which was not required for the other 3 rooms I had reserved for our group. That should not have happened. Everyone else had no problem checking in with ID and Credit Card but the late night clerk on Friday Night June 10th was really being silly in his demands for our late arrival. He needs to use some common sense next time and see that I had 6 rooms total in my name and added her (my friend) to one reservation.....ridiculous.
We like many things at this resort and this is the reason we go back a few times a year. Yet the service of many employees is not as good as can be, unfortunately. Requested to change room from 2 queen to a king bed and was refused, requested an upgrade and was refused, reason was the resort was sold out and no changes in room type could be made. Resort was busy but not sold out and i am sure our request could have been accommodated but we received only straight refusal. No cell phone service anywhere in the resort!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Westin Mission Hills Resort. Staff was friendly and attentive from check-in to check-out. Accomodating and helpful for whatever I inquired. Had a lovely golf course view which was spacious and comfy, and most importantly quiet! Plently of fun for my 8 yr old, but quiet enough at bedtime where we felt like we were the only ones there. Utilized the pools and restaurants the entire time, receiving friendly service from all. Breakfast buffet was delicious and great service each day.
The resort is great Rooms could be upgraded. I didn't feel the room to be as clean or comfortable as other resorts we have stayed at.
Restaurant and staff was excellent, Javier our Server at Pinzimini made our dinner that much more enjoyable and was very accommodating of my wife's food allergies Room was downgraded and not what we paid for. Also we were sent to a nearby golf course instead because we were told they didn't have a 9 hole option which we found out later that they did :(
This place has potential but needs massive work. Dirty, a moth hanging out in between the drapes, flies galore, dirty rooms, non functional outlets & lamps. We had a total of 4 rooms. Yucky & icky. Turn down service means close the shades and empty out waste baskets. What happened to prep the bed, leave two little chocolates, slippers and then closing the drapes. Westin has let me down on this trip. untrained staff in customer service & cleanliness of facilities.
I received a room right by the parking lot, which was noisy and took away from the relaxing atmosphere. I won't be staying at this hotel again for this reason
The bug infestation my room I had to switch rooms
Great welcome, complimentary upgrade, spacious, comfortable and quiet suite.
Room smelled really bad, carpets are old looking and drapes are old and were dirty looking
Probably the best bang for my buck ever at a hotel. Spacious room with a great golf course view. There was an adult only pool just around the corner from our room and a larger more family friendly pool towards the main plaza which means the hotel can accommodate any life stage. The main take away though is the customer service, every employee we passed in the hall said hello and asked how our day was. This on the outside seems like a small and simple thing but it made the experience so much more enjoyable.
Book a couple massage which was great, spa location noisy, jackhammering outside my room for two straight days, went there to escape LA noise pollution but it was worse I will give it another try, maybe
Fun pool! Great family hotel.
Very clean Bathroom doors-- check in time till 4:00
The customer service was top notch!
The hotel has an excellent staff. Cindy, our cabana attendant was awesome. She would check on us regularly, brought us multiple buckets of ice (without us asking), and was very sweet to the kids. I think every staff interaction I had was wonderful. The hotel is really geared towards families and they have a ton of activities for kids in addition to Splashtopia. The restaurant on site, Blu Ember, is wonderful. They had deals going on during our stay where the kids would eat free and there were a lot of options for the kids both at breakfast and dinner. The walls are thin and we could hear everything that was being said next to us. The families next to us were not being particularly loud, it's just that the walls are paper thin. Our bathroom had ants, which is not that big of a deal, but made me feel like maybe things weren't that clean. There are no elevators to reach the second floor. This is not a problem. We prefer to take the stairs. However, the building we stayed in (#24) had uneven stairs. So the first step was huge and then all the rest of the stairs would be the same size and then the last stair would be larger again. Both my sons fell the first time because they were not expecting such a large step. If you have little ones I would recommend getting a first floor room, however, with the walls being so thin = noise issue, I don't know if you want someone above you.
My favorite resort and retreat.
Loved our room and bedding. The view was of the golf course. Room was quiet and very pleasant. The water park was unbelievably packed ... just too many people in the area but all in all it was well managed ...
Splashtopia There were several entrances to access the pool area although you could not get towels at most of the entrances and had to walk a good distance to get towels. That was not convenient.
Bathrooms are finished with cheap fixtures, AC very loud, walls are thin and e could hear kids next door crying till 12:30.
Great location, facility and experience. We made reservations for two rooms. One through the La Quinta website and the other through Kayak. They had no record of the Kayak reservation. They still got us in after some delay. First time that has ever happened. Wifi not good at all.
Staff was gracious and helpful. There was sincerity in their attentiveness The bungalows are old so you can hear the televisions and water going through pipes in neighboring rooms. Pretty minor though and would still recommend a stay here.
The Mexican restaurant Adobe was really good and they are super dog friendly which was nice! We switched rooms because our first room smelled like cigars and weed, our second room wasn't much better either. The bathrooms are highly outdated and they don't offer robes or slippers in the rooms which I found odd.
Loved the cozy rooms!!
Everything was awesome, from check-in to check -out! The hotel was built in early 50's, but was updated while still maintaining the mad men classy feel. Everyone in our party loved the hotel. The views were spectacular at day and at night. Cannot express enough how wonderful this place is!
Staff was great and extremely helpful. Pool was relaxing. Food was okay but breakfast was better than lunch and dinner. The bar at the pool was good, but the drinks weren't strong or worth 9$. The alcoholic beverages at the pool bar were the biggest let down.
The grounds, pool area, hallways and the rooms were very clean and well maintained. The rooms were large and the beds comfortable. There was also plenty to do within walking distance of the hotel.
The room was clean and the furniture was updated. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The parking was terrible, plus they charge a daily fee of $18 which I was not aware of. The pool area was great and it was clean but the pool itself had tons of dead bugs and the water was so dirty and cloudy which was a really a shame because it was almost 110 degrees outside!
This place was so clean! I am so picky about my rooms and pools and Hilton didn't disappoint. We traveled with kids and the pool had a lot of them during the week (not sure about weekend), and they all had such a fun time. Also, so conveniently located by all of the shops and food. Great and accommodating staff. No complaints here! Nothing ;)
This hotel is really in need of a major rehab. The pool had scum floating in it.
Service was fast and attentive, even at the restaurant and even on a sold out weekend. And they didn't nickel-and-dime us for every little thing, such as the toothbrushes we forgot and the room towels we accidentally left at the pool. Not sure why people complain about the expensive parking because there is a free self-park lot only 100 feet away with plenty of spots.
Close walking to shoppimg and restaurant's.
Nightly parking fee on top of room rate, excessive charge
Our reserved room with two queen beds was unavailable upon arrival. The other room offered had one huge bed, but the other person was on a couch made into a queen. The suite was very posh, the Presidential Suite, with two rooms and a shower ten feet square!
The service in the hotel restaurants was horrible. But it is a clean hotel. Not really worth the price.
I enjoyed the little river that ran in the patio area. the lighting in the bathroom mirror area was not as bright.
Very quite. Staff very helpful. Close to El Paseo which was great for me. Needs major remodel.
This hotel was walking distance to the El Paseo shops. This hotel is extremely dated. The gym was old. The pool was crowded. This would be good for families on a budget, but if you have ever been to even JW Marriott or La Quinta you will be sorely disappointed here.
Peaceful, clean and relaxing Staff weren't too knowledgeable about their resort
People on staff and the room Yes, the pool was cold. And the workout room was poorly set up and some of the equipment was not working. When we asked about a plug, we were told it would be attended to, but it never was.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.

Only Pool Room is really dirty and has smoking smell
This hotel had 15 tennis courts that were very active. This is an older resort which had been modernized.
The studio where I stayed (292) was amazing, very comfortable and large, huge tv, great bed, nice kitchen and bathroom, loved it. Nothing
The room had most all amenities as if you were at home. Clean facility and friendly staff. Very reasonable rates The air conditioner in the room was weak and had a hard time keeping the room cool. The bed sagged in the middle.
Staff room and pool. Location of room. Too loud above. Tile floor above was loud.
The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the rooms were clean and nice. The staff dropped the ball pretty much every time we asked for assistance or needed an issue resolved. The only good experience we had with staff was a server in the restaurant, the bartender at the pool and a maintenance worker by the pool. The front desk staff were extremely rude, many staff members have no idea where anything is on the property, and no one apologized for making mistakes. 4th of July is obviously a busy weekend for the hotel, but we were also there for a wedding and the staff made many mistakes in accommodating the event and basic needs of a wedding group.
Nice staff! Big rooms Water main broke so that was a bummer but they moved us and compensated us a little. The first room had a big tub that I was looking forward to soaking in but never got the chance and the second room unfortunately didn't have one. Also we asked for non feather bedding because of allergies but at 2am we realized they weren't so our first night was pretty miserable
price blow up penis's in the pool, while kids where present
Amazing weekend. Our anniversary was celebrated in style. We will definately go back. Loved it. Nothing.
History of hotel and accessibility of a cocktail was nice. Room was nicely decorated and clean with exception of windows. Pay full price and you will get center room to main pool. Book in advance at discounted rates and you will get the garden villas aka lawn parking lot views. External windows haven't been cleaned in probably 2 years but I think it was a lawn view, difficult to see out. Good luck finding an umbrella by the pool. You can pay $500 for private cabana or burn in the sun for free.
The one thing we enjoyed was the pool table and rental of the bikes. I didn't like the fact I had to wait four hours to change my room and the house keeper and front desk go at back n fourth about changing my room that was filled with dead ants and live ones including bugs. Smelled badly .
buildings run down elevators smell and don't work well towels dirty bathroom with fixtures chipped two lamps without light bulbs
The staff was friendly, the pool, the music First room smelled weird, the second room had a cockroach on the wall.
location was great. staff was warm and friendly. room was clean and bed was comfortable. ac heating did not work. called front desk and was told they would send someone but that did not happen.
Nice pool area They could not get the heat to work and had no room available to move is to that had working heat. We were told the hotel would waive the $35 per day resort fee - we were then charged the fee upon check out. There should be some habitability law that requires basic deliverables from a hotel in California - if there is it is not being enforced.
The staff was nice that's about it This resort was dirty and not what we expected
Pool area has dj good for young people, staff very friendly Rooms are out dated and lobby was under construction
Love the resort itself and the staff Didn't like the bed, too aoft
All the individuals who work there we're fantastic! From the valet to front desk to the steakhouse restaurant! I was able to get a really good deal on one of the hotel.com websites, otherwise I would not have been able to stay at the Ritz! My friends and I were treated like royality...a huge shout out especially to Steven!!!! He is at the steakhouse restaurant and was PERFECT!!!! Thank you. Everything was perfect!
The room was large with a nice view on the 12th floor. The bathroom had a large bathtub My wife enjoyed. The food was excellent But a little high price. The food was expensive.
Location and facilities were a value for price paid.
Room was very quiet and comfortable. Room service was great and fast. Very large room with wonderfull bathroom. Since I got a good deal on my room they stuck me in one with a wall as my view. I asked to change and they said no. I don't think they were that busy. Not very friendly when I was asking. I was very disappointed and it seemed like they were upset that I got a good deal on the room.
great hotel, very satisfied, great prices on food and drink , little bit less expensive than most 4 star hotels
This place was amazing! We just wanted to get away for a night for my boyfriends birthday. We layed by the pool and had drinks, had dinner, gambled, and had a great time. We can't wait to go back!! By the way, our room was AMAZING! We got a balcony room which was great, plus the king bed was a Cal King. Luxury!
HUGE rooms. HUUUUGE. I was amazed at the size. Didn't really matter that we were on the street side with no view, rooms were comfortable, beds were nice, and the AC (most important) was functional. Nice and helpful front desk staff. And the colorful decor is truly adorable and very picturesque. Pool area was much more Vegas-y than I had anticipated. (If I had read the other reviews, I probably would've been less surprised.) Was hoping for a more chill, read by the pool, sip a cocktail kind of weekend, but it was a legit party and pool was kinda cloudy/yucky from so many people.
Great simple easy looks fantastic!
Nothing stands out The pool is murky. They absolutely should not allow pool goers that are not staying at the hotel. Drain the pool & start over! The rooms are NOT "suites". Also, what defines boutique? The colors are cool, the concept was executed but the staff & locals that frequent the pool are not keeping it classy.
I liked the look of the place all the bright colors While I was asleep my husband woke up to find bugs in our bed! We told the front desk and they offered us new sheets we left and when we called the manager Anna she was dismissive and rude!
Still got that retro funky sense of style. Great pool (DJ was really good). Still more affordable than other hip spots around. Spacious, simple rooms. Hotel staff was super helpful. Almost never any towels available at the pool. Drink service at the pool was dodgy at best. The hotel bar closed at 11:00pm on a Saturday night (had to do a Ralphs run for beer). Construction going on. Kids running around.
The bar closing at 11 PM was rather frustrating when we were trying to get together as a group and catch up with people
The concierge, Lynne, made our stay special! She is super friendly, accommodating and thoughtful. The hotel has everything you need! Pool and oustside activities were very resort-like, and the bar/restaurant on site was perfect for a happy hour start to our night out! Our next stay we plan on using their gym and cruisers to explore PS. Also loved the Buz Bus stop right outside front door. Had a great stay and will be back!
The Saguaro personifies Palm Springs- the colors, atmosphere, overall vibe. 2 of my girlfriends and I used it as a home base for the weekend, during which we had several parties to attend. It's location makes it prime, the deal we got on Kayak was uncomparable with the other 4 stars in the area. Clean, spacious, love the fridge in the room! Pool of course, is top 3 in the city. Also, EL JEFE has some of the most delish and forward thinking cuisine in town. At a reasonable price! I would eat there even without the convenience of staying there....goat cheese wrapped in eggplant? YES PLEASE Elevator was down in our tower during our stay, which was the only downside to our stay- lugging our bags to the 3rd floor during the hottest day of the week sucked, but luckily we are able-bodied and unbothered, may not have been as easily overlooked by older clients or clients with kids. We were told it was being fixed,hopefully soon!
Great facial and good pool scene. The room service was yummy and super fast. The elevator broke the day we got there. Things in certain areas looked run down.
Nice open patio. Hummingbirds everywhere. If I knew my room was at the foot of the staircase I would have said no way. Now I know to ask.
Very trendy place. I enjoyed the ambiance and the pool party. It's a great place for a younger crowd.
cool vibe. Seems like a great place to party. colorful. el jefe was el overpriced. we live in LA so we shouldn't have been surprised by the prices, and were still shocked by the lack of value.
the environment was welcomed and clean the staff was friendly and eager to inform all of the amenities available including amenities that branched out of the hotel to its neighboring hotels that offered many similar amenities in a different environment Nothing to say
