Palm Desert is an immensely popular destination, both for short breaks as well as longer vacations. Its popularity has led to a number of great hotels opening up across the region, from smaller boutique hotels to sprawling luxury resorts.
One of the best large hotels in Palm Desert is the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa, which is a luxury resort and spa located not too far from Palm Springs International Airport. The resort is a sprawling oasis with twisting waterways complete with gondolas, and a cascading waterfall in the hotel lobby. Their spa offers a huge variety of rejuvenating treatments, and you can spend your days relaxing at one of their four swimming pools. For those of you that are more active, there are two 18-hole championship golf courses, designed by Ted Robinson. The hotel also has six dining establishments, serving up everything from casual snacks to fine dining meals.
For a more bohemian style resort with a great desert chic vibe, the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs is the place to be. The hotel, spa and swim club mixes together the perfect balance of vintage and luxury, providing unique and fun facilities for its guests. As well as its two swimming pools, the hotel also has a vintage photobooth and free wifi. The hotel is completely dog friendly and even has a dog park so that your beloved pet can make some friends. Each room has a quirky twist, and as well as the standard items you would usually find in a hotel minibar, the Ace hotel also provides some delicious caramel popcorn. There are events going on almost every night, so check their website in advance to make sure you don’t miss out on anything spectacular.
The Saguaro Palm Springs is a hotel that adds some intense bursts of color to the desert, and is designed to look playful and cutting edge at the same time, with many elements being inspired by indigenous desert flowers. The food that you will find here is incredible, with Iron Chef Jose Garces in charge of all of the restaurants, as well as the poolside food and the room service dishes. The two restaurants offer Mexican and Spanish food, and often have some great special offers on depending on the time of day. The rooms are large, modern and colorful like the hotel exterior, and each room not only has a large bed, but also a spacious living area, handmade Mexican furniture, and organic toiletries and linen. For a relaxing holiday where you can lie by the pool sipping signature margaritas in the sun, there is no better hotel to stay at.
The best Palm Desert hotels have a long line of loyal customers, who return frequently on the weekends for a short break, so make sure to book as far in advance as possible to avoid disappointment. There are so many hotels that will provide you with a luxuriously relaxing break with attentive and personalised service, so choose one that has the facilities that are best suited to you.
