Hotel doors face into the main hotel lobby area, so it can be a bit loud, depending on how busy the hotel is at any given time. Standard hotel room, but clean, spacious and comfortable. The pool area is a bit small... there is a small "beach" at one end of the pool for kids to play in. Drink service...

Wonderful place to stay, when in Palm Springs. Has everything your resting body needs. it is comfortable, rooms are big enough for 4 people, beautiful landscape with lots of outdoor seating for families and friends. It is a great place for a bridal shower, party with girls only going to have a pampered time. It is one of the expensive...

This is a beautiful well kept resort. A bit on the fancy side for a family stay, but still very nice. The pool is heated and has a lot of places to sit and great poolside food/beverage service. The firepits at night were always busy so did not get a chance to enjoy them. We were there as a family...

Fantastic property, but the staff is the key to this resort. The wait staff at the Cava restaurant and in particular Juan were fabulous. We had 2 Celiacs in our group and they were very accommodating and took care of every detail. Allie, the concierge was also very good with arranging some excellent meals. Rooms are spacious and clean. Pool...

The best Renaissance in which I've stayed. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful and the grounds were pristine. I would stay here again any time that I'm in the Coachella Valley. The only criticism is that there are no (that I found) restaurants within walking distance, so either go with a car or be prepared to eat in the...

Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The room was great and the pool area (which I unfortunately didn't get to enjoy) was very nice. Great views of the golf course and surrounding mountains. Very nice upscale Marriott resort. I would definitely return for business or pleasure.
