We loved everything about this hotel. Friendly staff, spacious and clean rooms, beautiful pool with plenty of lounge chairs and a fun tiki bar. Only thing to be aware of are rooms that overlook the bar area. It can get loud. If you are looking for some R&R, ask for a room away from the bar area.

We love heading out to the desert. Have stayed here several times and most recently NYE two years ago. Always pleasantly greeted as we arrive by the valets and doormen. Equally so at the registration area. Check in was prompt and we were in our room within 10 minutes. Nice to have free guest parking if you choose not to... More

Our recent visit to this lovely resort hotel, formerly the Esmerelda, was a pleasure from beginning to end. With complimentary self parking, an in-room refrigerator for your personal use, spacious grounds and views to die for, it really was an escape from everyday life. We requested a quiet room as my husband was recovering from a recent hospital stay, and... More

My three-day business trip to the renaissance was a pleasure from beginning to end. The property is large and sprawling, so even walking to the room was a trek, but the cleanliness and customer service were top notch. Every request, including a billing issue and housekeeping needs, was met with a prompt can-do response. I did not eat on the... More

We went to the resort to check it out for a upcoming retreat event. Wow. The place is amazing!! We really liked the check in process. Usually in hotels of this size you walk into the lobby and you see luggage everywhere. At the Renaissance, the registration is just to one side as you drive up to the entrance. Very... More

Was here as part of a conference of meeting planners and was surprised at the lax attitude of staff and utter lack of management presence. Public areas were far flung and restaurant needs a map to find! Service was awful. Staff use Spanish, food was slow and cold. No jam, butter , etc at breakfast. Cheap.... Room was fine but... More

I stayed at the Renaissance Esmeralda for a conference in November. The resort was large and well kept and an oasis in the Coachella Valley. The staff was friendly at the check-in and made sure I had everything for my stay at the resort. The rooms were large and well appointed. Free Wi-Fi was included in the resort fee. The... More

My husband and I spent four days at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort, and I was able to spend a good amount of time enjoying the lovely grounds and our spacious room whilst my husband attended conference meetings. This resort exceeded my expectations because it is a rare, harmonic combination of beauty and utility. Beauty? The lobby is a knockout.... More

I stayed here with a girlfriend last year for the amazingly fabulous tennis tournament at Indian Wells. Our room was incredible, room service fab, lots of room, lots of counter space, comfy beds, great view. The bar in the lower lobby was a bustling hub of interesting people, and super friendly bartenders who made great drinks! The pool area is... More
