What a gorgeous place. If you get the chance STAY HERE. Great location. Beautiful pools, bet golf EVER across the street at Wilows. Gondolla ride a must day and night. Putting green fun but may through your game off.

Palm Desert, CA has grown so much! This is an outstanding hotel from which to base your exploration and enjoyment of the Palm Springs / Palm Desert area. Pros: 3 awesome swimming pools, 2 beautiful 18-hole golf courses, an 18-hole miniature golf course behind Starbucks, many tennis courts, a big high-energy bar, covered parking to keep your car cool in...

Attended a business convention at the JW. Awesome physical facility. The lobby, pools, and rooms were first rate. Encountered a few problems, but nothing the staff could not handle. There were an number of restaurants and on-site shopping that made the JW a true destination resort.

I December 2014 my wife and I were ending a magnificent 7 days at this property. The night prior to returning home, I was rushed to the hospital where I stayed for 3 days. The entire hotel staff made certain our room stayed reserved until we could return home. They also provided transportation for her to return from the hospital...

It was a long time ago.....but planning a return visit reminded me of the special 4 night/5 day day stay we had. The staff are on your side. The rooms are great. I loved the room service and the bars. It's in the centre of the earth and everything can be arranged! Everything. The place to go...that's for sure.

This is a great pool environment, and one of the desert classics. Great pools, good service, lots of extras like ice and water and clean bathrooms. A new addition is a professional falconer named Ken who works the pool area as an employee of the resort, using his super cool falcons to scare away annorying birds! Ken was exceptionally interesting...

We stayed during a very busy weekend & I was very impressed how well trained all the staff is. From valet, to front desk, to interactions with staff throughout the property. Our room was nice but I will say the mattresses could be better. This JW is massive but everything is there so you really do t have to leave....

Stayed here for 3 nights in February. The hotel is quite large which I found to be a good thing. At least four restaurants, bars, three pools (one was more quiet and less crowded than the others), several boutique shops. It was lovely. The rooms were very well equipped and updated, but not over the top fancy. Every room has...

We were here for a large conference. The resort accommodated the conference well, but the grounds and hotel were LARGE. It was a 5-10 minute walk from the lobby to our room. The layout was like a labyrinth (seriously, I felt like I should be dropping bread crumbs to find my way back). To get to our room, we had...

We stayed at the Marriott Desert Springs Villas II for the week which is adjacent to the Desert Springs resort. However, we frequently stroll over to the resort JWM in the morning or evening. The grounds are always a delight to take in---unbelievable mountain views and spectacular "photo ops" everywhere! One of the most impressive of many water features is...
