About the place

East Canyon Hotel and Spa claims to not just be a hotel, but something special. Intrigued yet? We sure are. The intimate boutique hotel is located in the Uptown Design district of Palm Springs, and offers a bespoke gay accommodation experience for the LGBTQ community. Through its tasteful rooms and strong attention to detail, you can look forward to a peaceful, comfortable, and relaxing stay in a desert environment.

Rooms here are said to be some of the most luxurious in Palm Springs. Choose from either the Queen, King, or Grand Suite, and be treated to a classic aesthetic. Dark woods coexist with modern furnishings, and a fresh colour scheme of white, chocolate, and burgundy creates a warm ambiance. If the idea of your own private Jacuzzi just sounds too good to resist, opt for the Grand Suite and experience the essence of luxury.

Whichever option you go for, you can enjoy the standard staples of a stay at East Canyon Hotel and Spa: plush waffle bathrobes, Gilchrist & Soames bathroom amenities, European rain shower heads, and seasonal down comforters to ensure you get the dreamiest sleep.

The luxury experience, however, extends well beyond the rooms. Wake up to a continental breakfast, which is served daily from 8am to 10am and includes muffins, bagels, fresh seasonal fruits, and freshly-brewed French roast coffee. With your stay, you are also entitled to a complimentary poolside cocktail during happy hour, which runs daily from 5pm to 6pm. This is the perfect occasion to mix and mingle, and potentially come away with a host of new friends.

While you may wish to explore Palm Springs, you should also devote some time to experiencing the indulgent facilities of East Canyon Hotel and Spa. The centerpiece of the hotel is arguably the oversized, heated swimming pool that is the ideal spot to unwind for the afternoon. Alternatively, dip into the outdoor Jacuzzi which is surrounded by lush gardens, and protected under a gazebo.

A reading library, WiFi throughout, and a welcoming and informative staff also ensure you have an experience at East Canyon Hotel and Spa that is well worth remembering. We’ll meet you in Palm Springs.
