Had a wonderful stay at the Renaissance Esmerelda in June. Although the temperature was its usual 103+ each day, the property was beautiful, green, with plenty of colorful flowers. The staff was friendly and attentive. Surprisingly to me, for a large hotel, the food both at the pool and during the conference I attended was very good. Played golf at one of the hotel courses, and it was in great shape despite being the middle of the summer. Everything was green, and the putting surfaces were great. The hotel and pool layout is typical of a Marriott type resort, horseshoe shaped hotel with pool directly out the back, but everything was well-maintained and the property and rooms were very clean. The hotel is conveniently located off Highway 111, and it is a short drive to Rancho Mirage and Palm Springs. Coming from the humidity of Texas, I found the heat to be no problem, because of the lack of humidity. I would recommend going Indian Wells, and staying at the Renaissance Esmerelda, even in the summer. A nice get away!
