Even people that visit Palm Springs often have never heard of this place. We found it when we were searching for something we hadn't done before in the area. This place has amazing charm, 50s architecture, and green grass (not too common in the desert). The free in-room breakfast was delicious. No restaurant on the grounds, but several are very close by. I recommend Elmer's for a good brunch right next door, diner-style.

This is the best hotel to stay in Palm Springs. Rooms are spacious and nice. Pool area is huge and resort like. Great views of the mountains and hotel property is beautiful. Secure property and very relaxing surroundings.

Stayed for three nights and had an amazing stay. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. Complimentary breakfast brought to your room every morning. The room was clean and well maintained. Also a great price compared to other hotels in the area.

An adorable place to stay! We loved it here. The hotel consists of a small number of bungalows around a pretty garden and pool. The architecture is really retro-cool and the rooms are comfortable, with good king-size beds and lots of light. The bathrooms have glass walls facing onto tiny private gardens (some units have outdoor showers). The pool is awesome - small, but chemical free and very pretty surrounded by palms and immaculate lawns. Each night you order your own breakfast, which will then be delivered to your room, served on your private patio or by the pool. There's also a free DVD library. The whole place was really peaceful and relaxing - the hotel is couples only, so very quiet and peaceful :-) Staff were helpful and friendly. Overall there's a very boutique-y, personal feel at the Horizon. Elsewhere in Palm Springs, we really recommend the air museum, Joshua Tree National Park (which, being high in the mountains, was cooler than PS) and the long, scenic drive to LA along the stupendous Palms-to-Pines highway, which takes you up mountains and through forests.

I desperately needed to get out of town for some R&R, and decided to take my girlfriend to Palm Springs. We usually stay at the Ace Hotel, but last time we were there, it was SO crowded and filled with a very young Ed Hardy fraternity crowd. This time I didn't want to deal with the noise, so I researched a few places online and found the Horizon. They bill themselves as a Mid-Century throwback, and since I'm a fan of the era, I decided to give it a further look. I found a great deal, via twitter, and booked the hotel for two nights. Wow, this hotel and staff, is as good as it gets. They are SO FRIENDLY, accommodating, and awesome. The manager was the perfect host and set us up in a great room right near the pool. If you're a fan of Mid-Century architecture, then you will love this place. Each room is very private, clean, quiet, and designed very tastefully. On a Friday night, the pool was EMPTY! I couldn't believe it! It was the exact opposite of the Ace Hotel! Not only is the setting beautiful, but the hotel includes free wifi, and free breakfast to your room each morning. You fill out what you want, and they bring it to you either in the room, on the patio, or poolside. Oh, I almost forgot, no kids allowed either! Honestly I'm still a bit shocked at how great the service was. This place is paradise and an amazing value. Overall I am very impressed and look forward to going back to the Horizon in the future.
