About A Place in The Sun Garden

Set within landscaped gardens and overlooking the San Jacinto Mountains, A Place in The Sun Garden is just over three kilometres from downtown Palm Springs' shops, restaurants, and bars. A palm-flanked saltwater pool and a putting green add to this mid-century inn's quaint retro charm.

Homely studio rooms with warm tones and carpeted floors provide kitchenettes, patios, and cable TVs. Bungalows with one or two bedrooms offer kitchens and dining areas; some have private back yards.

Common amenities include a hot tub and a heated poolside gazebo. Wi-Fi and parking are both complimentary. Well-behaved pets are welcome.

A free continental breakfast is provided each day. A number of cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and bars can be found nearby, including the ever-popular Townie Bagels an eight-minute walk away.

A Place in The Sun Garden is just over a kilometre from picturesque Tahquitz Canyon, and three kilometres from Palm Springs Art Museum. Wet 'n' Wild Palm Springs, a sprawling water park packed with slides and wave pools, is around ten minutes' drive away.
