Rooms & Rates

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.
