We had a wonderful time at the Hyatt and in Indian Wells. The hotel is beautiful (but yes, it is in need of some updating). Our rooms (connecting) were spacious and the beds so very comfortable. The bathrooms were also large however, the design could be tweaked to allow for a shower large enough to bathe without banging elbows. The bathrooms could also be equipped with magnifying mirrors and better lighting. The bedroom would benefit from a full length mirror that is not mounted on the closet doors with only 36 inches between them and the wall. We really enjoyed being on the ground floor facing the pools. It made for wonderful mornings sitting out there before getting ready for our day. And we did not experience any issues with noise, whether from other guests or bands. One complaint: we were in the second to last room of the wing (near the spa). We could go out via the door at the end of the hall but had to walk half-way down the wing to get back in. I see no reason why that door can't be equipped with a card reader. And the walk to the lobby was LONG, until we figured out that we could go out the first door to the front of the hotel and cut across....a lovely walk. The adults only pool was delightful with good beverage/food service. The Roadrunner Cafe, not so much. The food in the Lantana had good food and it was great when we could get a seat outside. Don't fall for the buffet breakfast unless you eat a lot. Otherwise, it is more expensive than ordering off the menu. The Agave Sunset lounge had a very good DJ Wednesday night and a good band on Thursday. We got back too late on Friday and Saturday for those bands. The spa is very nice. Only complaint is, you have to time it just right to use any of the exercise equipment. We golfed twice at the IW Golf Resort. BEAUTIFUL course in wonderful condition and the staff is the best I have encountered in ages. I would rank it for staff and appearance right up there with Mauna Kea. Biggest complaint: having to pay for internet service. At $300+/night plus a $23/day resort fee, I find it annoying to then have to pay $10/day to use the internet....especially when I get it for free at so many lower-end motels and inns. Biggest compliment: the staff, especially the guys out front. Lenny is a doll and always took good care of us.
