We've stayed here a few times, and there are many great things about the property. First, they keep it well maintained, and the building feels solid - you don't hear much from other rooms or hallways. Also, because there aren't other tall buildings nearby, most rooms should have a pretty clear view of the hills and mountains, the golf course,...

We have been staying at this gorgeous resort for 10 years now and it just keeps getting better. Dilly Perera has always taken very good care of us. Natividad in the restaurant is fantastic and very knowledgeable about the resort and surrounding area. The pool area is second to none! Extremely large free form pool with waterfalls and wonderful mountain...

I have come to the Esmeralda a number of times over the past few years for a quick few days away from the Pacific Northwest. The rooms here are always comfortable and spacious. Not to mention they have fun walk-through closet :) Palm Springs always feels like home and the Esmeralda is the perfect place to get away to. The...

Recently stayed for 3 nights at the Renaissance Esmeralda in Indian Wells (Palm Springs). About 40 minutes drive from PSP airport, on beautiful palm lined drive. Rooms are large, with big fluffy quilts and lots of pillows. Bathrooms have double sinks, tub with shower, and separate toilet area. Nice and clean. Request golf course view for quiet, and near pool...

We loved our stay at the Esmeralda. They offer a beautiful clean resort with well-manicured landscaping. The main lobby offers a beautiful dual stairway that leads to a decorative lobby with a bar and seating to view the pool. Staff (Andy) was so so nice. He is a true asset to the resort. The room was well decorated and the...

Stayed overnight on our way to Vegas from San Diego. We had a double queen room which was more than sufficient for our needs. Beds were comfortable and room clean. We spent most of the time at the huge pool cooling down after a hot drive and again the next morning before continuing our journey. Very relaxing and could easily...

We enjoyed our stay at the Renaissance Esmeralda for a business meeting. Our room was very nice, spacious and well-appointed, but it was located so far from the elevators that getting to and from was part of our daily workout. For that reason, it was probably not often used, so upon our arrival, we discovered a few dead insects (including...

We stayed at the Renaissance in Indian Wells in August for 2 nights. We were a family of 4 and had a standard room. We asked for a quiet room, which it definitely was. It was quite a long walk from reception, but we didn't mind that because we preferred the location of our room away from the main lobby...

The rooms are beautiful, very clean. We had 2 connecting rooms, which was perfect for our family ! It was like a suite :-) The swimming pool area is very nice too, although we didn't use it, as we arrived late and had to go in the morning (it was just a stop for us). We wish we had stayed...
