Kimpton ROWAN PALM SPRINGS

Palm Springs, California

Virgin rating

The hotel

You will know you’ve arrived in Palm Springs as soon as you cast your eyes on the epic scenery. Mountain peaks and desert in the distance, and those well-known Californian palm trees. You can take in the sunset from the Kimpton Rowan’s rooftop pool with a cocktail in hand, and sample some of the delicious food in one of the swanky restaurants. And not forgetting the location – you’re slap-bang in Downtown – step out the front doors and you’ll find the foodie scene and nightlife buzz right at your feet.

The Kimpton Rowan was perfectly appointed and suited our discerning taste. The lobby was beautifully designed with a tall ceiling, bar, social space, eclectic staircase and seating. Is was a great spot to hangout if you had time. Our room had a stunning view of the mountains. It was designed with the sophisticated palette in mind. A book was at the beside for anyone to borrow and read. The hotel is located at the center of all the comings and goings for shoppers and diners. It is the busiest part of Palm Springs, but yet quiet and peaceful. We were surrounded by the beautiful San Jacinto and San Bernardino Mountains. The views from anywhere in Palm Springs were spiritually breathtaking. The top floor at the pool provided an even more spectacular experience. The Rowan is the tallest building in Palm Springs. We stayed in another beautiful hotel during our vacation in Palm Springs, which we recommended as well, but the Rowan is by far our favorite. Read less

The hotel exceeded my expectations and my travel partner. From the hotel transportation, to the front desk, the managers were always walking around visible at all times and asking if there was anything they could get you! Security was always visible which made me feel very safe. I would like to acknowledge Chris, Abigail, Gina and Leo, Shae,… Read more

Security was always visible which made me feel very safe. I would like to acknowledge Chris, Abigail, Gina and Leo, Shae, Viviana, just a few of the names I remember. I would definitely come back because of the excellent service I received. I was treated like Royalty!!! Read less

This is not the Palm Springs experience. Staff are arrogant. Views over the car park. Not as advertised on the website. Wish I had not chosen this hotel. Service is very poor.

First time in Palm Springs and won't be the last. Staying here is one of the reasons. We had an amazing suite and the staff all around were great. We were welcomed warmly as a first-time guest and the valets were friendly and fast. Next time, I'd like to try the onsite dining options.
