The Desert Springs JW Marriott Resort & Spa is a beautiful hotel on a very nice property. Our room was way at the end of the east wing, directly overlooking the lake. (In the evening they offer free boat rides that begin within the lobby.)The property has a nice, large pool area, 2 golf courses, and several restaurant options. The room itself was very nice and large--it had two extremely comfortable full-sized beds with amazing linens & pillows, a shower and a bathtub, a huge flat screen TV, and a nice balcony with a couple chairs. It was a bit of a trek from our room to the lobby, but it wasn't that bad because we weren't directly overlooking the pool so there was less noise. Make sure you get a room over the lake if you can, and not facing the parking lot. The staff was very nice and accommodating and every one of them I saw in the hallway was sure to say hello. The only downside, as a couple other people wrote on here as well, was that there was a "white trashy" element at the pool area. If i were an older couple or if I had young children, I definitely would have been angry. There were many extremely loud and rude guys (bachelor party?) saying every 4-letter word in the book with no regard for who was around. Also, near the end of the afternoon there were lots of drunk people seeing how loud they could yell for well over an hour. Security was around, but they didn't seem to care that this place is a 4-star resort that caters to families and couples. It was really obnoxious! However, I was able to tune it out for the most part and enjoy my stay. The poolside bar & grill was nice, as was the breakfast buffet at the lakeside restaurant. Overall, I would recommend the resort, but if you are looking for a very relaxing time, maybe mid-week would be better than on the weekend.
