Palm Desert

JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa

Why We Love This Hotel

  • This AAA 4-Diamond convention-oriented hotel attracts mostly business travelers but offers a slew of amenities to suit families as well
  • If you can stand to leave the four gorgeous pools -- downtown Palm Springs is a 25-minute drive away
  • Rooms are have a modern vibe and come with private balconies, floor-to-ceiling windows and Italian marble accents
  • Surrounded by waterways, the hotel operates gondola rides from the lobby to take guests to property restaurants


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.
