Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 4 Hotels in Indian Wells
Reviewed December 17, 2012

Stayed here for two nights the last week of November. Friendly and very helpful staff. Rooms are OK for a resort. Pool area is nice with a swim up bar and fire pits in the evening. Bar lounge was packed with conference people but the staff was quick and efficient. Only thing I did not like that prices of drinks varied from one day to the next.

Room Tip: Request room overlooking pool area.

Best part about this resort is the short 1 1/2 hr drive from L.A. You can have a luxury mini vacation get-away with no airport to deal with, When we arrived we were greeted with champagne mimosas at check-in The Esmeralda has one of the largest pools in the Palm Springs area. It also has a separate pool with a 25 yard long waterfall that is very refreshing.
I wish it had a completely seperate pool for parents who want to swim with their babies that are still in diapers. Their are swim diaper dispensers by the main pool. YUK!
Their are a few shops , coffee, gellatto etc upstairs from the exquisite bar/ sitting area with a grand double stairway leading to them. The rooms are spacious with a balcony and great views from the higher floors. We went in the middle of August and the weekend stay at this resort was very crowded, all the lounge chairs by the pool get taken so go early if you want one.

Room Tip: Higher floors, ask for golf course fairway view.

Attended a dance event for my daughter held at this hotel this past weekend. We booked 2nights at the hotel and loved it. The pool is just heavenly, you can let the kiddies splash around while you get pool side drinks and lunch service. The rooms were big with: iPhone dock changer/ player , coffee maker, mini bar, cable TV, wifi ( fee) , and stunning views. We had excellent service by all staff at the resort and the food was delicious! The only "con" of our stay were the beds. Although the sheets were soft and comfy the mattress left much to be desired. It was terrible and just sorta sank when you went to sleep. We woke up with horrible back pain as did our friend who stayed there. My only suggestion would be some better mattresses.

I stayed here for a conference and enjoyed my three days there. The rooms are large and I had a wonderful view of the mountains. Staff are polite and helpful in a very "corporate" manner - not bad, but no personal touches either. I suppose it's difficult in a hotel as large as this.

The resort is beautiful. We had great meals. We golfed at IW club. Only downside was that we could not get service at outside bar area. Other tables were served but we had to flag down servers every time to get food or drinks. Tried to tell management but they were not available.

I just want to say that this was a last minute getaway. We have driven by this hotel but didn't remember the name, so we drove into the parking lot and I started looking on my cell phone and seen that they had a 24 hour sale for $134.00. So we decided that before we booked it the room that we would walk in and look around. we were WOW nice hotel and all the staff were smiling and greeted it and at that moment we decided to give it a try. So we went to the front desk to book a room and were we told the room was 179.00 and I mention the price we seen on line and we were given the rate we seen online. That was awesome!!! We then got to are room and it was beautiful and clean loved It!!! Then we went to the bar down stairs and I had the Cuban Society that was recommended by Tony and he was right that drink was really good and he was awesome I recommended you to go to the bar and ask for Tony he is great!!!
I really recommended this hotel it is great and the staff is the best!!!!!!

What a great place! We stayed 2 nights for a conference and everything was perfect. Our room was beautiful, the staff was expeditious when we asked for extra toiletries and the food was yummy.
Cava had an amazing wild mushroom soup and served us even close to closing time without a problem. The next night we sat by the pool until 11 pm and no one forced us out or gave us any problem.
I'm not sure about the issues others mentioned, but our stay was wonderful!
Oh! The beds are wonderful!
