I was there for a conference. The room was HUGE, with a large bathroom and a walk-in closet (I had Room 6043). The beds were super comfortable. There was a fridge and coffee pot. My room overlooked the pool and the view was delightful. Don't miss the flamingos in the pond out in front of the hotel or the swans... More

Stayed here for a weekend break during a two week business trip. I was a little concerned when I got to the room, as the decor is a bit tired. The views, however, are something of which I'll never tire. Pool, golf course, mountains. On Saturday I spent a long day hiking in Joshua Tree National Park (which I high... More

This resort is utterly beautiful. It is clean, modern and the views are stunning. The resort is so large, it feels like a small city. The rooms are super reasonable, and the balcony on the less expensive rooms is massive. Did I mention the views?? The food in the resort, especially the sushi is amazing. I also ate at the... More

I stayed at this beautiful property the week after my Mother passed away.

I stayed at Desert Springs JW almost a week and was not disappointed. I would gladly return though there were a few minor things to improve. The room was good size, clean, with traditional décor. There was a full walk-in closet! May be the first I've ever seen in a hotel room. There is a terrace with a beautiful view... More

My 1st trip via wheelchair = fear of resort limitations. No worries! Despite lakes, pools, restaurants, shops & cocktail bars on multiple floors, this resort has gone out of its way to guarantee access virtually everywhere. Even in the pools where electronic chairs can lift you in & out. Elevator or mechanical lifts take care of the rest of then... More

Stayed here for a corporate event so didn't really get to see the pools and resort features, but really nice place. Big open atrium style entrance, my room was pretty luxurious, the bathroom was lovely and had separate bath and shower. Bed was super comfortable - nice little balcony overlooking the golf course and gardens. Very nice.

JW Marriott was a nice surprise this past weekend. Three pools, one with music and water misters. We chose the quieter of the three....clean, nice easily movable umbrellas, poolside service, nice gym, nice inside and outside bar and excellent morning breakfast and buffet. Room was clean, comfortable bed, outside patio, super nice employees. Will go back again.
