We have traveled to Indian Wells Resort every January for a long weekend for the last few years and had grown to love the quirkiness and even dated feel of the resort that Lucy & Desi Arnez founded back in the 50's. But, this time, our stay left us short-changed. Coming from Denver in the winter, one of the main draws for our family is always the pool. Indian Wells Resort neglected to mention that the pool was being resurfaced during our stay. Construction around the pool took out all the outdoor common areas. We would have hoped the hotel would offer an alternative of some kind- perhaps a reciprocal relationship they could offer at a neighboring pool, but no such luck. In addition, ALL the indoor common spaces in the lounge area and lobby were set up all weekend for "Frank's Place", a pay-to-sit dinner show with a Frank Sinatra impersonator which catered to an elderly crowd not staying at the hotel. The lacrosse team, whose girls, coaches, and families were paying guests of the hotel, was asked to not use the main doors when they came in in the evening so as not to disturb the dinner guests when they walked in. There was nowhere outside of your room to relax or even sit at the bar. And speaking of relaxing, we hope they update the mattresses soon-- they are definitely from a bygone era! Indian Wells has some "splaining" to do!!!
