Spanning over 45 lush acres of orange trees, vibrant flower beds and manicured lawns is the historic La Quinta Resort and Club. Built in the 1920s, this storied hotel has hosted such luminaries as President Eisenhower, Greta Garbo, Frank Capra and more. 

The originally casita-style rooms have been multiplied and expanded upon to include suites ranging from "Wow!" to "Holy cow!" 

Nearly all the rooms have private fireplaces, some with private pools as well and each are decorated in a thoughtful blend of California casual meets traditional luxury. Neutral colored walls, intricately carved four poster wooden beds and plantation shutters are just right for curling up with a good book. 

The couch-potato averse will delight in trying any of the nine available golf courses. Afterwards, work out the kinks at the resort spa which features custom citrus-scented blends from the property's own fruit trees.

Other options to while away the hours include a premier tennis center, on-site hiking trails, multiple pools and regularly scheduled fitness classes.

Those seeking a lazier getaway can indulge in retail therapy at the cluster of shops lining the resort’s Main Plaza.

Mexican food lovers will make a beeline for the hotel’s Adobe Grill, which features hand-made tamales and an in-house master tequilero to help choose from the more than 100 tequilas available.

I love the casitas, collection of swimming pools, bougainvillea and citrus trees.

I have been staying at the La Quinta Resort on and off for over 40 years! Everything was excellent, except.....I noted that non-hotel people from outside the resort were parking in the nearby lot and coming and going to our pool with their kids to use the pool facility. It got so crowded and noisy that I had to trek over to the (gated and locked) adult pool to have the space and tranquility I was seeking as a paying guest! The staff really needs to patrol the pools and crack down on the public coming into the resort. It is very unfair and disruptive!

La Quinta is an exceptionally beautiful resort. Everything at your fingertips so you never need to leave, but should you like to, close to surrounding areas for shopping and restaurants. The staff was at their best.

Hotel was not aware of the exact credit resort my voucher entitled and I was told twice that I was wrong until a supervisor stepped in to handle the invoice. I came from more than 3 hours away and I was not allowed to check in just an hour earlier than 4 and was not allowed to check out later than 12 as staff had originally said that would be possible with low occupancy; the occupancy was only at 50% so no real reason for not accommodating my request. A few other unsatisfactory items: The food at 26 was terrible We were not supplied with enough towels and toilettries. Room service breakfast was cold, bland, soggy and overall not worth the 36 price tag for one eggs Benedict and sausage.
