“Palm Desert Weekend”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

We headed to Palm Desert for a long weekend to escape the Pacific Northwest weather for a few days and stayed at the Marriott Courtyard in Palm Desert. It's a satisfactory hotel, but I think a bit expensive for what you get. It's a very basic room, no views to speak of and you have to have a car. The plus side, it's close to I-10. The hotel is not walking distance to anything except an Applebees Restaurant. As with most Marriott's, the staff is very helpful and customer service friendly. The buffet breakfast is better than average, but kind of expensive unless it's included in your room cost. I was disappointed with the "mini-store" in the lobby. Since there is nothing nearby it would be nice to see a greater variety of choices. They only had one computer station in the business area and I had to check back a couple times to find it free. The outdoor pool and hot tub looked nice, but it was a bit too chilly for me to use the pool this trip. I usually stay at Marriott hotels and found this one just ok for the cost.

Room Tip: We had a corner room, facing south east, which was nice for getting fresh air and sunshine into the...

My visit to this hotel was the last week of January and the first week of February 2012. Room was clean, front desk was efficient, helpful, friendly, and the spa was clean and relaxing. What more can you ask for when you are on business? The hotel is also very close to the 10 freeway! The mountains in the morning are gorgeous!!!

Cell phones do not work AT ALL within the hotel. SLOW SLOW SLOW wired internet only in rooms. Hardly any electrical outlets in the room.

Broken, uncomfortable desk chair in room. I checked out after one night and went to a competitor.

Room Tip: Connectivity is important to me. I don't like my cell phone not working in the hotel when I trav...

I stayed here for my best friend's wedding. I did not want to leave. As a first timer to California, this was the best way to visit. Beautiful hotel, amazing view when you wake up in the morning. Staff was great and there are a lot of stores and restaurants within short driving distance. Applebee's right next door.
