We had a couple visitors from out of town and decided we would go to a neighboring town for a couple of days. Litttle did our visitors know we were heading for Palm Springs (PS).
During mid year 2018, we went to PS for a good friends Birthday and we wanted to go to PS again but during a cooler, more comfortable season and wanted to be in/near the main strip. So we had an idea of the general area of where we wanted since we had stayed on a resort property in the Rancho Mirage area the last time and was approx. 15-20 minutes drive every time we wanted to go to the strip.
While looking for resorts/ hotels via Trip Advisor I came across the Best Western Plus La Brisa Hotel. In looking at the photos and the reviews, it appeared decent like somewhere I would consider staying. I had called the hotel directly to inquire about any construction going on the property and they had already completed all construction work and thought that’s awesome !!So decided to go back online and reserve 2 rooms.
When we arrived, I couldn’t believe how close it was to the main strip which was just a block away...yes, a block away! But I’ll get back to that in a moment. So anyway, I walk into a boutique like lobby with bar lounge to one side of the lobby. I had asked to change one of rooms from a King Bed to 2 beds and we were accommodated not only with 2 queen beds but also adjoining rooms so we didn’t have to go in/out of the front door🤗!
The property consists of 3 buildings, all connected which you wouldn’t think the property was that large from the street as it appears as a quaint little hotel. Quaint it is, although an older property, the driveway arch has a fully gown and flowering bougainvillea. The plants and vegetation on the property is well maintained, there are a couple of courtyards as well as near the pool for breakfast dining which BTW breakfast is included with your room cost. The rooms were clean and better than expected, hardwood floors and comfortable bed. The bathroom was basic and was glad that the vanity/wash basin was outside and separated from the shower/throne area. Just outside of our room was a common patio area with a couple of tables and chairs.
So back to how close the property is to the main strip...as I mentioned earlier, it is just a block away. Dining, cocktails, deserts, shopping just less than 500 steps away. The only time we had to drive is when we went the PS tram to the top of Mt Jacinto, but that’s another review✌🏻🙃!
Overall, we enjoyed staying here at the BWPLBH and will definitely stay here again. Would I recommend this place?; Absolutely!
Until than, happy travels!! less
