Rooms & Rates

The Chateau at Lake La Quinta is a quintessential desert boutique hotel. Small without skimping on amenities, it's situated between the Santa Rosa and San Jacinto Mountains and Lake La Quinta. A wealth of golf courses, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and The Living Desert Zoo are all within a 15-minute drive from the property.

Even the most basic suites are spacious, with private patios overlooking Lake La Quinta, stylish decor and complimentary Wi-Fi. Bungalows are bigger and come with fireplaces. All were renovated in 2015, an update that included a brand-new upscale restaurant serving steaks, seafood and other California fare. 

The pool is nice and relaxing (if a bit small), and a big patio has romantic fireplaces and a pizza oven. This is a good choice for couples who want a secluded desert escape.
