I always wanted to stay here, the water in the lobby and boat shuttles to the restaurants sounded enticing,. I love the desert, my draw is the stillness and light, the warmth, they all combine for a unique experience. There are some lovely resorts, but this is more like a hotel in Las Vegas. Don't be fooled by the water... More

The staff is friendly - but for this price I expected a fully working and clean room. The ice machine produced ice with dirt in it. The water temperature at the faucets of the room could only deliver warm or hot water - at least the room temperature control worked. The room is nice, but not as clean as I... More

I'm still a bit amazed by the impressive service the Desert Springs Resort team put forward. We held our annual leadership retreat at the Resort, and used a conference set up and catering service. The food - and service - was incredible. I've attended plenty of conferences, and have written off food at these events as bland, overcooked, mass produced,... More

I have really taken to desert life....probably due to the comforts of the hotel. Great hotel, nice people, lots of sun. I even was able to watch playoff hockey in the bar without having to search out a local sports bar! All said, this is a nice hotel, and food not priced to high either. A walmart about 10 minutes...

I stayed at the JW Marriott Palm Desert for a work conference back in February. I had a a beautiful room directly overlooking the pool and the golf course with the mountains in the background. It was gorgeous and I wish I were there for pleasure and not work. My room was large and spacious with a big bathroom, full... More

I came here with my partner, as he had a conference and my job allows me to work from practically anywhere. Palm Springs area is one of my favorites. I have never stayed here before, so it was all new to me and trying to get my bearings on how to get around took a day or so. Our room... More

Stayed for one night for a quick getaway for the wife and I. I have stayed at two other JW's in the past and was quite excited about trying another. However, I was disappointed overall with this experience. Newly renovated lobby is impressive and check-in was quick and easy. $25 resort fee that covers parking and wired Internet but that... More

Great hotel if you are 20-something and looking for a hip hang-out scene. But for our family, with kids ages 10 and 13, it was not the environment we wanted them exposed to. There is a separate "family pool," but it is so close to the main pool that you can hear the loud music and see the scantily clad,... More

When we arrived, we knew this hotel is a magnet for college spring breakers. The Oasis pools are overcrowded with teens and college students, most not even staying at the hotel. As much as they want to hold them back, they sneak in. The main pool, the Oasis is filled with action, but not appropriate for a family with a... More

OMG ! a place that should offer peace and quiet in the serenity of the desert has become a loud ugly drunken party haven. 12 noon and I am out of meeting and back to room and slide open door to view mountains and take in the air. Pounding beat of Lady Gaga pushed me back. Need to wear a... More
