Enjoyed one night at the Date Tree Hotel while traveling to Arizona. The hotel is vintage 1950's and has been nicely restored. The rooms are spacious, harkening back to another era. The numerous palm trees were waving gently in the warm fading light as we were welcomed by efficient, courteous and helpful staff at the front desk. The hotel which is divided into 3 rectangular building touts spacious parking (we had a 15 ft moving truck that fit well). The staff recommended a wonderful Mexican restaurant, El Campanario Restaurant which was within walking distance and served amazing and delicious authentic delights. The night passed quietly and in the morning a wonderful complimentary breakfast was provided. It had the most choices I have seen in a chain hotel.
The only drawback to this experience was that the hotel is on the outskirts of Indio. I did love the retro vibe and will definitely return again even thought the price was a bit more ($140) than I usually pay for a nights stay and they are pet friendly, charging only a nominal fee which I will take advantage of next time. less

Put succinctly: you expressed quite eloquently what the Best Western Date Tree is all about--and the vibe that we are trying to impart on a daily basis.
And yes: the hotel was built in the 1950's--and we really have tried to keep that whole ethos of Palm Springs Modern alive...while doing our yearly upgrades on the hotel. Loved that you noticed this and took the time to comment.
We truly have one simple and salient goal: to exceed the expectations of each and every guest. And while no hotel can every be 100% perfect, it still is something that we strive for each and every day. Anything less, at least in our minds, and we have failed.
Thanks again for choosing the Best Western Date Tree on your most recent stay with us. And we will look forward to seeing you back at our hotel the next time your travels bring you back to Indio.
