Chateau at Lake La Quinta has become our go to in Palm Springs. Rooms are warm and inviting and have a great view of the lake. Melange was great for every meal. Had the pool area mostly to ourselves. The manager's champagne welcome was new but much appreciated! See you again soon

Recently stayed at this property. Paid way too much for this supposedly deluxe room. It was tired to say the least. Beds are old and soft, rooms are as gauche as you get and oppressively decorated with horrible lighting. They bank on the fact it is the only place in the valley

"Try to get a lake view"
"There are two bungalows seperate from the mail hotel that are beautiful!! If you want a romantic getaway then they are worth the extra $$!"
"Ask for a room without the outside entrance."
"2nd floor for privacy and view. Request room away from busy street end. 1st floor if you don't want to use stairs (no elevator)"
