Stranded overnight for biz and got a great last minute rate. Gorgeous upgraded corner room overlooking pools which had surprising umber of families. Nice lobby, and restaurant on-site was easy for dinner. Self-parking (included in my rate) was obnoxious since there are only stairs and no ramps for pulling luggage. I enjoyed the music ambience in the lobbies and outside....

I attended a conference at this hotel. It had been about 10 years since I stayed here but it was just as nice as I remembered. Rooms have been updated, are very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Staff are top notch, always willing to go out of their way to please. We had asked for the mini bar to be emptied...

This beautiful resort is riddled with contradictions. Imagine spending a week in the desert to "get away from it all," only to be constantly bombarded with obnoxiously inescapable music…such was my stay at the Renaissance Esmerelda. The rooms are nice. Large and spacious. The pool area is beautiful. I don't golf, but the grass looks lush and well kept. My...

Thank you for your very nice words about our setting, guest rooms, pool area and the lushness of the golf course. We are very sorry to hear that the entryway music was too loud and will review this at once. We would love the opportunity to welcome you back and hope you will consider a return visit.

This was our third visit to the Renaissance Esmerald Resort in Indian Wells,outside of Palm Springs, CA. This property is gorgeous! Our suite was luxurious and overlooked the beautiful pool area. The staff was extremely accomodating and kind. We felt like we were welcomed to a place we could temporaily call "home". One little detail....next time we visit Palm Springs,...

We stayed here for a one night getaway as part of a 5 day San Diego trip. We were escaping to warmer weather. The drive from San Diego is spectacular. The hotel grounds are very nice and well kept. The workout room is small but very good. The pool area is super nice, but was very quiet on our visit....

We've stayed at the JW Marriott a couple times and La Quinta when we've come to the greater Palm Springs area. This time we decided to try something different. In comparison to those hotels this isn't as nice. When we checked in they told me we'd have a mountain view which ended up being a view of the road. We...

I recently stayed at the Renaissance Esmeralda in March 2013 for a weekend "staycation" to tide me over until my next big real long-distance vacation. I got a terrific deal on Priceline and feel that in the end it was a decent place to stay but not quite perfect. I would be happy to stay here again if I get...

Stayed for 3 nights in March during the big tennis tournament. The rooms were very modern, with a comfortable bed/pillow combination and chaise lounge nice for relaxing. Lots of channels on the TV in the room, including the Tennis Channel. The bathrooms were large and updated and water pressure was good. The public areas were lovely, especially the terrace facing...

I've stayed at the Esmeralda twice now for business events. One thing I noticed about the hotel is its courteous staff and facilities. Located next to the Indian Wells golf course it is an ideal location for visiting the Palm Springs area with family as the pool facilities are very nice and there are an abundance of restaurants and shopping...

Just entering the property gives you a feeling of resort status. Enjoyed the quality of the room and public areas. Although it was spring break and pool was invaded by hundreds of children we still enjoyed our stay. Special shout out to Lydia at front desk for accomodating us with a great room. Will be back!
