Recently spent two days in Palm Springs at the Marriott Shadow Ridge. Had a great stay and really enjoyed the golf course. Typical high Marriott standards. The staff went out of their way to make everything nice.

A beautiful resort, very well maintained and staffed. The "hardscape" is inventive and a pleasure to view. Lovely pools and well equipped exercise facility. Lots of daily activities or walk on the new nature path. A great place in the desert!

I booked Shadow Ridge at the last minute for a business trip with little to no research. I was very pleasantly surprised upon arrival, the resort seems like new. The rooms were very comfortable and quite, I never heard a sound from the neighboring units. I've already recommended this resort to some of my golf playing buddies!

When you stay at Shadow Ridge, it's like a home away from home. The furnishings are lovely, the grounds beautiful, and the parking plentiful. If you're a golfer, the course and practice facilities are fantastic! If you're a family, the pools and activities are incredible.

We rented out 3 villas and was able to fit 17 people. Not much of a party scene when going into town but it was nice staying in and relaxing. It felt like our own apartment. It's 25-30 mins away to Palm Springs $16-20 Uber ride.

This was our second visit to Shadow Ridge, and we were fortunate enough to be able to stay in the same building that we were in two years ago. It overlooked the 17th hole which was incredible. What made the trip more exceptional was our dinner at the Grill. The last time we ate on-site, at the Grill, we were...
