More Room Types

The term "desert oasis" is marketed so often in the Palm Springs hotel biz that the term has little meaning. One exception, however, is the AAA 4-Diamond-rated JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa. 

It is surrounded by waterways where you can spot pink flamingos or jump on one of the gondola rides that depart from the hotel lobby. There are also four pools and a 38,000 square-foot spa with its own saltwater pool.

The hotel was built for conventions but with a wealth of kid-friendly activities, a huge tennis complex and two 18-hole golf courses -- it also feels like vacation.

Rooms are clean and modern and many have balconies with views of the lake or the Santa Rosa Mountains. However nothing is free here; guests are responsible for a steep resort fee, and the rest of the stay might feel like a minefield of hidden fees. Business guests billing their employers won't mind, but leisure travelers certainly will.

Downtown Palm Springs is 25-minutes away by car, and the legendary Joshua Tree National Park is a 40-minute drive away.
