We stayed here for a weekend get away with family. We had 3 rooms and very much loved our stay. The rooms were clean, modern and quiet, The swimming pool is huge and has a gorgeous mountain view. The swimming pool reminded me of the pools at Hawaii resorts and the many palm trees added to the tropical feeling. We... More

My husband and I just got back from a quick trip to Indian Wells. I have stayed at the Renaissance several times with my girlfriends but this was my husband's first time. From the minute we parked our car, every staff member we encountered from the bell hops to the check in staff to the bartenders at the pool was... More

Stayed the night at this resort. We rented a cabana by the pool. This was the best thing we could have done to stay out of the searing sun. We had a small and beach in front of our cabana. Unfortunately, the sand was searing hot. The pool was cool and refreshing. The deepest it gets is 4 feet. Only... More

Was able to grab a deal thru Marriott.com including breakfast buffet (quite decent especially with the juice bar) for 4 probably due to scorching heat in the middle of summer (average 105 degree everyday we were there). Very nice property. A tad old but well maintained by the staff. $30 resort fees a bit steep but at least it covers... More

First time we've stayed here was paradise. We were in love with the property. It was for 4th of July and besides the pool being filled with dirty and food leftovers from the holiday I guess it was a nice stay. So we decided to come back, and then, the nightmare begin. Only if I knew I would have stay... More

Nice hotel in a relaxing area, we stayed for 3 nights for some downtime in a busy holiday. The hotel grounds and interiors are well maintained ,rooms feel bigger than some other similar properties and the fridge in each is very welcome. The air conditioning was very sluggish in the rooms despite being on the lowest though the lobby and... More

The pool experience was a nightmare. The pool was filled with dirtbags, fights were breaking out over chairs, etc. It was as if the rooms were free that weekend and every gang banger from LA decided to come over and stay there. Add to it the lack of parking, forcing us to valet park when I did not need to... More

This is one of my absolute favorite hotels in the Coachella Valley. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and have small refrigerators. The gym and equipment available is huge in comparison to some hotels. There are views of the golf course, pool or mountain - - - really no bad view. All of the restaurants and lounge area are great.... More
