Avanti Hotel Review: Family-owned, this small boutique hotel offers a classic Palm Springs experience, from its mid-century architecture to its personal service-oriented attitude. The property has just ten rooms, from studios to suites with kitchens, all featuring coffee makers with Starbucks, Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, spa robes and ECRU skin and body care products. Most also have their own patios, offering the utmost in privacy for sunbathing. In-room dining is available through LA Bites; as well, you can whip up your own meal on the community barbecue or take advantage of the poolside breakfast buffet and, later in the day, cocktail hour. Because kids sixteen and under are not allowed (dogs, on the other hand, are), this hotel has an adult-friendly vibe. Guests can relax at the heated pool and sundeck, mingle in the private hot tub area, enjoy an in-room massage or take off and explore Palm Springs on one of the house cruiser bikes.
