This hotel is very comfortable. The lobby and guest rooms are decorated nicely and the pool area is large. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I always like to give both pros and cons so here we go... Pros- Good location in Indian Wells - adjacent to Hyatt Grand Champions which is also a great place to stay - with a golf club in the middle so if you like to golf it's all right there. They also have tennis courts and underground free self parking which is a huge plus in the summer. The beds are very comfortable and our room overlooking the golf course was very quiet. The area between the pool and lobby has different levels with seating areas perfect to sit around in the evening with friends and a drink! The fitness center is well equipped and towels and water are provided. Just down the street is a Starbucks and a little further is a great place called The River with many really good restaurants, a huge movie theatre and some shops. There is also a Ralphs nearby to stock up on snacks and drinks for your mini fridge provided in the room. They also provide flavored water throughout the lobby and fitness areas which is a nice touch. The cons - everything seemed a bit smeary - door handles, elevator doors, windows. That extra clean touch of a 4 or 5 star hotel was lacking a little in the common areas. The pool is only 3 FEET DEEP everywhere - even though it's sectioned off, there is no "deep " end anywhere. Hard to stay submerged - more like a wading pool- my son scraped his back severely on the bottom just by pushing off the rim backwards. Now if you have a small child - this could count as a pro for you. There is also a sand beach front entry on one side and a 1 ft. deep rectangular pool area for the really wee ones. There is only 1 place for breakfast on site and it's very pricey and just not very good. Even the pancakes were kind of chewy - that's why I mentioned the nearby Starbucks - a much better and cheaper option. There is also a bagel place a little farther down than Starbucks and on the opposite side of the street.
Overall this is a really good place to stay for a couple of days in the desert.
