My husband and I had a fabulous short stay at the J. W. Marriott hotel and spa in Palm Desert. We've stayed here before! We love it! We had a gorgeous room overlooking the pool and the golf course in the distance. The golf courses here, there are two of them, are amazing. You drive up to the registration and...

Fun course! Not a lot of trouble if you spray a tee shot. The course was in good condition. Greens were a little shaggy and slow. Good practice facilities. all the staff was very friendly. I would play this course again.

Maybe it's because I don't love the idea of staying in a hotel that resembles more of a mini city compound, but this just wasn't my style. Although the hotel grounds are lovely and large, gardens well looked after, flamingos on site, even pond water dyed blue, this was just like a fake city built in the desert for me....

Finally a resort that gives you something of value for the resort fee that they all seem to want to charge. This one includes golf clinic daily, use of 18 hole putting course, tennis court usage, spa usage, fitness class and more. Really appreciated the golf clinic and Cody did a great job with instruction. Really patient, enthusiastic and helpful....

We normally stay at starwood properties but since Marriott bought Starwood and our rewards can be transferred we thought we should give a marrriott a try. The property itself was impressive. From the moment you turn onto the driveway you can see that it is an expansive property. And when you walk through the property you can see that it...

Just got back from a long weekend at this resort and found myself pretty disappointed overall. First, we had two rooms booked and we requested connecting rooms which they easily accommodated. The problem was we were able to get one of our rooms by the promised check in time of 4 but we didn't get the second room until after...

My daughter and three granddaughters visited again this fabulous resort/ Hawaii in Southern California without a 5 hour plane ride. We were able to obtain again the two Signature View-Oasis Pool Guest rooms(adjoining) that looked out over the two fabulous pools, the waterways and the golf course on the seventh floor with balconies.

It's difficult to describe what it's like to see this resort for the first time. The symmetry of the buildings against the backdrop of the mountains. The fountains, flowers, and flamingoes that greet you. And then there's the ease of surrendering the car and the effortless check in process. The service is top notch from the moment your foot hits...
