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!

Over the years we have stayed at this hotel 4 or 5 times. It has a great spa and an outstanding pool bar which is important for those hot Palm Springs days. The pool has a waterfall that is fun for the kids to stand under. The staff is friendly enough. It is an easy drive to excellent restaurants nearby....

The staff at the Renaissance are all very nice, pleasant and helpful. They are friendly, always smiling and eager to help with anything you need. It is in all honesty some of the nicest staff I have had the pleasure to experience in my travels all over the world. We were here on a golf vacation and you couldn't ask...

Was here on business for a week. Very nice hotel with great amenities. Fridge in the room, keurig with good selection was nice touch. Everything was clean and spacious. Pool looked nice but never used it. Restaurants on site are pricey but convenient. Hotel staff very nice. Didn't appreciate the 2am false alarm fire alarm bit that was out of...

Great stay at Renaissance Indian Wells. Staff very helpful and friendly (especially Jasmine at front desk), pool area is beautifully designed. Friday night seafood buffet was extensive and a great value. Have played the course a few years ago and it's one of the best in the area. Will definitely return!

Only one reason to spend well over $250/night PLUS a $30/night RESORT Fee in January to stay at a Resort and Spa in Palm Springs - the Resort and the Spa and a good nights sleep! At the Renaissance Resort and Spa the hotel front desk employee upon check-in said the spa is "totally separate" from the hotel and claimed...
