We stayed here and the resort is beautiful with gorgeous mountain views surrounding it. The standard rooms were pretty normal in size and nothing particularly spectacular other than the view itself from the balcony.
The dining options were surprisingly good. The first night we had sushi in the bar as an appetizer and it was pretty amazing. We ate twice at the Rockwood Grill and that too was very good. We loved the fact that they use local farmers for their ingredients be it meat or produce. I will say this, the prices are more on the expensive side, but this is a resort and you tell me any resort that they prices are not higher than outside the property. The food quality was excellent and therefore in my opinion worth the dollars.
We had business to attend to in Palm Springs throughout our stay and that was a little cumbersome being out in Palm Desert. There did not seem to be too much around unless you find strip mall appealing. We tend to prefer the unique dining choices within Palm Springs and that was a little bit of a haul. It is probably why we ended up eating on the resort.
The design of the hotel is awkward. The resort itself is quite large so our room was way on one end of the property. It was a long walk to get to dining or to go to the parking garage. One tip: ask for a more centralized room closer to the main elevators.
There is a resort fee. Yes, I realize hotels and resorts have figured out that mandating this charge is one additional way to earn revenue. It does cover a lot of things including internet and parking. One tip: ask for a discount on the price. We only had to pay $18 per day. Parking by iteself was $15 a night. The normal price for the resort fee is substantially higher.
