Originally we could not get into this hotel due to 3 conventions going at the same time. We stopped by to register for the convention when my husband went to talk to the front desk. Raul worked with us and got us a room as something opened up--he was delightful and made us feel very welcome. We had a certificate...

On a college visit trip with our son, we decided to spend a few days of r & r in the Palm Springs area. The hotel is well-appointed, relatively new and part of a complex off Route 111 that includes Indian Wells Golf Club and the Hyatt Resort. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and lush. The building weaves around the...

We love this resort and have stayed here numerous times in recent years. The resort is beautiful, the refurbishment looks really good and the staff overall provide great service. We spend a lot of money on hotel stays for our family vacations and do not mind paying for excellent service. The pool staff here are seasoned, attentive and quick. This...

We stayed here for one night and were pleased with the hotel. Located right off Hwy 111, it is conveniently located close to many restaurants in the area. Our room was spacious and clean. The hotel has kind of an old school feel to it, but it is very well maintained. The large pool Rea had plenty of chaise lounges...

We had a okay stay at the Renaissance Esmeralda. It was a nice resort, but maybe just not for us since we were just a couple with no kids. Pros: - Beautiful grounds and golf course - very well maintained - Fairly large rooms - Huge pool - Lots of dining options - Plenty of parking, although a bit of...

You approach the hotel along a palm tree lined drive with views of a golf course rising off to your left. The hotel reception was pretty quiet when we arrived with no one in front of us. Our bags were dealt with efficiently, as was the valet parking. We had a corner kingbed deluxe room, which is larger than the...

Why should I have to wake up at 6am to reserve a chaise lounge at the pool? Either put out more lounges (by the grass area or the fountain area) or book fewer rooms. It's obvious that in the desert, people will want to swim. If you can't provide that, don't book the room.

We recently stayed at this property during Spring break and had mixed feelings about this property. The grounds are well maintained with beautiful flowers and entry. The Cava restaurant was nice and the food was good. The golf course was good and well maintained and convenient. I was very disappointed that the pool did not have any security as one...

Overall, the Resort is very nice and the staff is very accommodating and polite. The only problem I have is that in order to get a lounge chair next to the pool you have to get to the pool by 7:00 am, otherwise forget it. People are reserving 10 chairs at a time and then leave and go away for...

If you want to be walking distance to a great golf course, this is a perfect spot to stay. The grounds surrounding the hotel are very well maintained with beautiful flowers, and landscaping. The resort borders the updated Indian Wells golf course, which has a great new clubhouse and wonderful facilities. We played the Celebrity course and many of the...
