Let me start by saying that you should never go to Palm Springs in August. I felt as though I was melting the whole trip. It was 115 everyday. As far as the resort, it was pretty nice and expansive. I was actually quite pleased with the room. It came with a small fridge and a nice balcony with a... More

The hotel was beautifully set in an oasis of greenery in the desert - just beautiful! We have stayed at many Marriott's and this one being a J. W. Marriott was exceptional! Staff was very pleasant and friendly, grounds were beautiful and wide open. The pool was great, very large, clean and warm. The padded circular couches with umbrellas were... More

Pros: Nice location, beautiful property, great service, okay food. Cons: First of all, my fiance and I wanted to get away for the weekend to relax and take advantage of this resort's spa and pools. Check-in is at 4pm and but the pool bar closes at 5pm?! I do not think it is fair for this hotel to have check-in... More

This hotel was set amongst the greenery of a desert bowl and we couldn't have felt more at home. The staff were welcoming, friendly and generous. The middle of summer, Labour Day weekend (2013) and the place was buzzing. But you never felt crowded as the layout of the restaurants and bars were perfect. As was the evening gondola ride... More

I was there for a conference in August. The staff was very friendly and obviously trained to greet guests and take care of your needs...but NOTHING is free. We were surprised to find out that the self parking and internet were $27 daily. The breakfast buffet was $24 per person. I could not eat that much in the morning to... More

Enjoyed a two night stay. Beautifully landscaped resort, surrounded by stunning scenery. Lovely pool area with three pools which is just as well as it is incredibly hot. The kids loved the parrots and also the little boat trip you can take around the resort. The room as extremely comfortable and the bathroom very luxurious and spacious. The hotel is... More

Even if you're not planning an overnight stay at this property, if you're in the area, you simply must make time to enjoy their first-rate Spa. The facility itself is gorgeous and the service is superb. There is a huge selection of spa services with many variations of a massage or facial. Four friends and I who live locally decided... More

Staff are friendly, so accommodating. Greet you with a smile & hello. Relaxing getaway in a wonderful location. Love the gondolas & the birds by them. Nice touch. Sushi bar is a... More

Just returned from a great girls weekend ... first time at a JW Marriot property. Arrived around 4pm, check-in line was long. Valet is not included in resort fees only self-parking. We had to much luggage it was worth the valet convenience. Valet staff and bellmen were all very friendly and helpful. The drive up to the entrance was beautiful... More

I have stayed at this resort several times. The last time prior to my Aug 9-11, 2014 visit was over ten years ago. Since that time they have done a nice job of upgrading or a better word would be "revamping" the entire lobby area. This is a resort atmosphere comparable to a Vegas property. The modifications and look are... More
