My wife and I got a tip from a co-worker to stay here for our anniversary. I booked the hotel without much research but I did look at the pictures which were amazing. As we entered the looby we were quite pleased by the lobby and surrondings which remind us of the Hilton on the big island. Staff very friendly... More

The JW is a fun place to go with a group of people. The main highlight of this hotel is the pool during the day. During busy months, they actually require wristbands to get into the pool area, and the pool gets packed. They are pretty strict about the amount of wristbands they give out per room--so if going with... More

My husband and I flew to Palm Springs to spend a quiet weekend with our daughter who is attending a yoga teacher training there. It was a nightmare! The place was filled with people who drove from Los Angeles and Orange County. From Morning until night there were throngs of obnoxious people. There was not a seat to be had... More

This is one of my all time favorites.... what a pretty golf course and so user friendly. An array of restaurants that must make other resorts simply jealous. Lots of beautifully kept grounds that beg photo opportunities. It's common for thier to be live music somewhere on the property also.... Charming .... Gondola rides to outlying restaurants and more than... More

Big Name, Big Looby, Big Lake...still like Motel 6. Motel 6 probably has better service though. Front Desk • We had made reservations for a signature view room about two weeks in advance on the internet. Front desk assigned us to a regular room, not a signature view room. When we protested the front desk was willing to give us... More

The hotel charges an exorbinant "resort fee" on top of the already too high price for this hotel. The staff was ok, the room was ok, parking was terrible. On the weekend the parking is non-existent! The room was average at best, and the bathroom was anything but clean. There was BLOOD on the wall and dirty fingerprints on the... More

We are Marriott Elite members and their marketing is, “Room request -- priority given to elite member’s room request.” We redeemed Marriott Points for 2 connecting rooms for 7 nights. It was an enormous struggle with the Front Desk to get our room request fulfilled! My husband had called the hotel directly on 3/16/09 regarding our room request. When we... More

I admit that we have stayed in really nice hotels, however, we can travel on a budget. With this trip we planned on spending a lttle more with the expectation that we would be staying at a really nice resort. This hotel is deceiving. When you drive up to the hotel it looks beautiful. The lobby is impressive and the... More
