Best Western Plus Las Brisas Hotel
Why We Love This Hotel
- There's a large outdoor pool that is more relaxed than nearby party hotels
- Bustling Palm Canyon Drive is five minutes on foot
- Free Wi-Fi, breakfast, parking and no resort fee make this a great value
Free parking, breakfast and Wi-Fi without a resort fee are rare in Palm Springs, but the Best Western Plus Las Briasa has all three.
Nearly every other reason to visit this desert town is nearby, starting with a lively pool. Tropical flowers bloom from high garden hedges that border the outdoor pool, offering some privacy as well as shade from the blazing sun. Grab a cocktail from the poolside gazebo bar and relax, as you do in Palm Springs. There's not much to see from rooms, but mountain peaks tower over the pool area, and when the temperature drops as it tends to do on desert nights, there's an outdoor hot tub with pleasant views.
If you hit La Cantina, the onsite restaurant and bar, around 4 p.m., you'll find retro rattan tables and chairs prepped for happy hour. Lunch and dinner are served there too. A standard complimentary breakfast buffet spread is held in the club room daily. Palm Canyon Drive, the main drag of downtown is a walkable five-minutes away, and hiking and wild-life watching at Indian Canyons is a ten minute drive.
