Designed for those who want to detox, lose weight, or chill out in the mineral pools, The Spring delivers quiet and personal service atop a Desert Hot Springs hill. Rooms, many with fully equipped kitchens, hug the three mineral pools and are decorated without frills: the accent walls are cork or stained particle board, the floors are concrete, and there aren't TVs or phones (though Wi-Fi is available). The draw is the day spa, which has the typical menu of wraps, scrubs,
and massages. Special packages offer one or two nights' accommodations and up to four hours of treatment.
