Fodor's Review

The vibe is social and the rooms are spacious at this classy resort whose gracious hosts serve a primarily gay clientele. Each of the rooms, which circle a landscaped pool area, has a unique layout, with carefully coordinated dark colors; Frette linens add the right touch of elegance. The ample bathrooms were recently updated. The club room has a giant TV, plus a library well stocked with videos and books. The resort offers a full range of spa treatments, wedding services, and continental breakfast.

A Perfect Palm Springs Getaway

What a great hotel! This is a low-key, upscale place where we could relax and enjoy Palm Springs. The rooms are well designed, spacious, and extremely clean. They certainly are on a par with any boutique hotel. The pool has plenty of loungers and is well laid out to allow for sunning, conversation and reading. The spa services were just great  all done by well trained staff and with a complete professional manner. Our massages were some of

the best we have ever had. We met and chatted with other guests from all over the world, most of whom were similar to us (30s-40s professional). This is not a party or pick-up place, so if thats what youre looking the East Canyon is not for you. We highly recommend this hotel and will definitely return!
