You are correct of course, I didn't even realize it was open for editing...

...so added a warning, perhaps that's more useful than simply deleting.

Why not try Googleing the address of the shul and the addresses of hotels in Google maps and see for yourself? I know you're new to the forums, but you get the best answers here (if any at all) if you ask questions you can not get the answers to from a quick Google search. If you can ask Google, please do.

Thanks for your help. Is there any forum or any way to find out if groups of people would be having minyanim in any of these hotels on shabbos since they are pretty far from Chabad?

IMHO, rent a house near Chabad in PS. Lots of great houses with private pool. Great Chabad House. No brainer.

If anyone wants I have credit for these houses which are within walking distance to Chabad of Palm Springs, and can provide a discount off of the listed rates.

A private house with a pool in a walled in backyard, kitchen to warm up your BYOK, outdoor eating, walking distance to a great shul, close to downtown PS and the Thursday night festival, what's not to love?

You can check the available dates for each house on the calendar via the links below. PM if interested, thanks!

"One- and Two-bedroom Bungalows also offer a gas fireplace, a full kitchen, a parlor, and a wet bar. "

But 1.3 miles from shul and no private pool like you would get with airbnb.

We were just in Westin mission hills last night. Met a few Frum families staying for shabbos. We wouldíve loved to stay for Shabbos but all sold out. Chabad is 1.5 miles from there. Chabad of Rancho Mirage. Seems like thereís some sort of convention happening this week.

If it's not a franchise, it's no different than any other coffee bean in Southern California. The drinks are Kosher. The store itself does not have a hashgacha that is reliable.

That said, if he likes baking in a hot, dry oven, Palm Springs in July is just the place to be.
