The property is one of the best in the desert. The pool and staff outside is exceptional. The style of the property is getting dated. The Coffee shop is too small. the restaurants need to be open more than the limited hours of operation.

I traveled to this hotel wife my wife for a wedding and overall the hotel is nice. The pool area was very nice and the waitresses and pool attendants were excellent. The hotel facility, including our room, was generally clean and in good shape. I did, however notice cobwebs and daddy long legs in the above light in the hallway...

I give the hotel a 4.8 rating, almost 5. But my husband and I are seniors and we were given a page on proper etiquette when visiting certain areas. That was insulting. The grounds were beautiful, and well manicured, and we even enjoyed an outdoor jazz concert and fireworks. Yet the pool and jacuzzi areas were inundated with screaming Happy...

We live locally, but wanted to do a little staycation for Mother's Day and my sons 5th birthday. It was a last minute decision, and boy did we score with the Renaissance. We did a different local resort for my son's birthday last year, they had a water slide and a lazy river, it was fun for him but a...

I was planning a two day hike in Joshua Tree National Park and I wanted to stay in a hotel instead of camp, and boy did I hit the jackpot with this Renaissance. When checking in I asked for a quiet room and the front desk person, Cassie, more than delivered on my request! I had a gorgeous room with...

Went with some business partners to SPC , what a joke. More like a bunch of zoo animals for staff. The hostess were not dressed professional and the wait staff all looked like they worked at a fast food joint. Bar drinks were poor the pizza tasted like cardboard .

We wanted a suite with accessible needs to allow him to sleep and me to work without being in same room. No suite options offered. Took room 4002. Hotels really need to have someone in a wheel chair use a room and see how "accessible" it really is. Entry and bathrooms have marble tiles that are difficult to go over...

This is one of the nicest properties I have stayed at. The tv's are huge, the pool was great. So many people leave the pool and leave their towels on the chairs so it's hard to find a place to sit. The pool drinks are expensive. Beautiful property.

This hotel is not good for adults. Thousands of small children. No problem with children, but there is no reserved pool or chairs for adults. Only one restaurant. Would not recommend if adult only trip. Probably good for trip with young children.

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review of your recent stay. We are certainly a very family friendly resort on weekends, holidays and during spring break. We certainly do cater to couples at all times, however the best times to visit would be mid-week and during the fall & winter weekends. We hope you're able to return...

“If you would like quiet, maybe do not request a pool view. Perhaps a golf coarse view. rooms on the Southside are much quieter.”
