Viceroy Palm Springs, California

Hotel Reviews: Throughout the year we visit the lovely Viceroy Hotel and Resort, Palm Springs, California for a relaxing weekend in one of their villas (the resort's free standing one or two bedroom private cottages). I've done quite a few reviews about the Viceroy (see links at bottom). The Viceroy Palm Springs is located at 415 South Belardo Drive which is just one block off of the happening South Palm Canyon Drive. The villas are located around the property on either the Regency Courtyard or the Fountain Courtyard side. For this visit, we stayed in the Dorrington Villa #507 which is a one bedroom villa located on the Fountain Courtyard side. Each villa features a living room (with fireplace), dining room, fully equipped kitchen, one or two bedrooms, one or two bathrooms, and private patio.  

The layouts vary by unit and so do their private outdoor areas. For instance, #507 had a small narrow tile patio; whereas, #504 and #506 have a tiled patio area plus a grassy yard- perfect for dogs! The Viceroy charges a $100 nonrefundable pet fee and allows pets under 40 lbs and definitely makes pets feel very welcome during their stay. Pets are even welcome to dine on the patio at Citron restaurant and relax poolside.

As far as best villas for dogs, #506 (two bedroom) and #504 (one bedroom) both have fully enclosed private, grassy yards which make them really nice for pet friendly travel. For more pictures and reviews from my previous stays at the Viceroy Palm Springs, be sure to check out these links:
