We stayed at Indian Wells Resort for one night last weekend. We were visiting with our 3 month old daughter and are very happy with the hospitality of all the hotel staff (valet, front desk). Room is spacious and relaxing. Resort pool and facilities are good too. Everyone in the hotel was very friendly and we chatted with a lot...

My husband and two boys (7 and 10) stayed here for 5 days in February. Check in was easy and fast; we didn't use valet parking as it was convenient enough to park and not far away. Our room was on the third floor and faced south looking toward the mountains- great view. The room was in good shape and...

This hotel was fabulous. My husband and I stayed in November and again in February. Clean and extremely relaxing hotel. The staff at this hotel stand out with their service. All the staff at this hotel are so friendly - right from the cleaning staff to the management staff. It wasn't the usual good morning- it was definitely sincere. I...

Excellent choice in Palm Springs area Attentive staff, good food. Pool area is expansive and comfortable. Pool side service is excellent. Buy a pitcher of your favorite drink. Excellent value. Probably 50% off buying drinks individually On site restaraunts serve good quality and have daily specials that help take the "hurt" off resort prices. Take advantage of them. They are...

Overall the hotel is clean and adequate. However, I booked (through Priceline) for a price well below the average cost listed on other sites. Paying full price would not be worth it. While clean and in a nice location, the hotel is dated and doesn't include breakfast. We were put in a room in the furthest possible corner from the...

Nice rooms, views, tennis courts and swimming pool. Top class service. A huge parking lot. On the downside, expensive breakfast and not enough nearby places to dine. Would love to come back for the stay. Recommended!

Got a very good deal on Priceline for a one night stay which I subsequently updated to a corner suite. Very nice hotel, I'd say 4 stars. Very pleasant service and surroundings, although slightly dated. Room very large, nice view of lake. Golf course looked very nice. Loudest air conditioning I've ever heard! Actually needed to use my ear plugs.

Very very nice hotel. Got it on Priceline so got a very good deal. Room was spacious and well appointed. Service was also great. Some noisy neighbors next door so when I complained the resort took $50 off my bill! Absolutely will stay again!

My husband and I recently stayed at this property for a conference. The Renaissance in Indian Wells is truly lovely. The room was spacious, the bed was comfy, we had a beautiful view of the golf course, the staff was great and the grounds and pool area are stunning. I've always liked Renaissance properties but this one is extra special!

Thank Suzanne J
