When researching this article, I was blown away at how many great hotels are pet-friendly in Palm Springs. You are not sacrificing a lesser hotel just because you want to bring your pet. Just be mindful what time of year you choose to visit. Palm Springs can get extremely hot in the summer, and I’d advise against visiting with pets during that time. I wrote an article all about the best time to visit, including my favorite months, fun events to plan around and average temperatures through the seasons.
