Palm Springs Boutique Hotels Receive TripAdvisor’s 2015 Travelers’ Choice Awards

logo-02 Palm Springs boutique hotels received four of TripAdvisor’s 2015 Travelers’ Choice Awards for the Top 25 Small Hotels, Service, Romance and Bargain Hotels in the U.S. Elevating this prestige further, the City of Palm Springs has been named a top 25 destination in the U.S. by the 2015 Travelers’ Choice Award for the third year in a row.“The culture and draw to Palm Springs started with small, boutique resorts providing unsurpassed hospitality and creating a feeling of home away from home. We’re excited to see that tradition continue, and recognition by our visitors,” said David Shahriari, President of Small Hotels of Palm Springs (SHoPS) and owner of the Villa Royale Inn an Europa Restaurant.

Historically, small hotels have contributed to Palm Spring Tourism and attracted discerning clientele looking for experiences different than those offered by chain hotels. SHoPS., a diverse collection of Palm Springs’ best small boutique resorts, hotels and little inns, provides that experience. All are independently owned and operated, each with their own rich history, personality, architecture, setting, style and ambiance. Most have fewer than fifty guestrooms, and many include suites or villas. These small boutique inns are unique to themselves and many are hidden in distinct and historic neighborhoods throughout the city adding to their appeal.

SHoPS is pleased to have been awarded with these Traveler’s Choice Awards. “With this type of success we look forward to working with large hotels with a goal to make Palm Springs a top five (5) destination,” said Shahriari.

Traveler’s Choice Awards are determined by millions of reviews and opinions from TripAdvisor from travelers around the world.

Owner of Villa Royale Inn is Elected President of SHoPS.
