Amazing Staff! Although the property is beautiful, I have to say that the staff made this stay for my daughter and I. Most especially Katie at Concierge and Myrna in Room Operations departments. They extended themselves above and beyond and I will never forget how they helped us tremendously. They deserve a shout out from their employer.

Rooms are spacious, clean and nicely appointed. Beds are really comfortable. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Took advantage of a Travelzoo special so great value. Free wifi and parking include in the resort fee but it was pricey even with the special. Breakfast buffet was amazing!

While it lacks the charm of the casitas at La Quinta or hipness of the hotels in the old part of Palm Springs proper we enjoyed our long weekend here. Good variety of restaurants. Nice pool area and grounds to wander and balcony with view of mountains. Kids also liked playing ping pong and that bean bag game. Adults enjoyed...

Disclaimer: I am a Marriott Platinum Premier rewards member. If you are not part of the Marriott Rewards Program the hotel is more than fine, however question what you are getting for the resort fee as I find it to be excessive. There are several other properties in the Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage area that offer much better value. If you...

Surrounded by a golf course this renaissance hotel is attractive. The rooms are situated around an atrium. The hotel is clean and attractive. Swimming pool, Jacuzzi, and ping pong tables are fun activities there in the hotel. In my opinion the spa prices and restaurant prices are high. The rooms are clean and well furnished with complementary coffee, tea, water...

I had a great time here over the holidays. Front desk people were great. The room was big and the bed was huge and relaxing. Woke up every morning to a view of the gorgeous golf course. Pool bartenders were awesome and they made the best bloody mary drinks. The gym was nice with a beautiful view of the pond(it...

This is a first class operation without the high end cost. Its not cheap but so worth what you pay. The staff treat you like guests at a Ritz Carlton with courtesy and care. The architecture is stunning and the grounds are beautiful. We particularly enjoyed all the extra features such as the gym with plenty of equipment that was...

The resort grounds were beautiful and the staff were very friendly. We booked on Hotwire and got an amazing price for two nights. For such a beautiful resort I was disappointed that the remote control was taped together and the bedding was low end. The bed skirt looked like it had been there for many many years. I expected a...

Booked this hotel for NYE because my son and family came last year. They were surprised last year that they had a kids NYE party dancing, cookies and candy, with "Champagne" at (9:00 pm) when the ball drops in NY. No complaints about resort, nice and friendly staff. Clean comfortable rooms, big bathroom, great views. Now my complaint: They dont...
