When you're headed to the city of Palm Springs (not counting the surrounding cities), your options are small B&B's (dozens in the city) or a few of the bigger hotels (Hyatt, Hilton, Hard Rock, Casino, Courtyard or Renaissance). If you're going to target a bigger place, the Renaissance is a really good choice. It's close enough to downtown, so that you can walk easily. Plus they have a shuttle that will take you and pick you up. It's a big place, spread out. Considering it's about 20+ years old, they've kept it up very nicely. The service, while not Four Seasons quality, is very good. Because it was our 25th anniversary, they upgraded us to a pool facing suite with a balcony. I'd highly suggest that type of room. It may cost a little more, but worth it. It's not really a suite, more of a large room.
While they call it a pool view, you also get a view of the Mountains behind the pool. The breakfast was standard Marriott, meaning fine, but not spectacular. One disappointment as a Platinum member was there was no concierge room - odd for a larger hotel next to the convention center. While I haven't stayed at the other bigger hotels, this one looks more current than the others.
