Help with Hyatt Grand Champions location

We have a reservation at the Hyatt Grand Champions resort for next week and I am hearing that it is on the far side of Indian Wells. I got a great rate at the Hyatt with some gift certificates that I had. We are interested in doing the touristy stuff such as the tram, and Indian Canyons as well as Palm Canyon Drive and the Thursday night Village Fest. I am hoping that we will not wish we were closer to things. What does anyone think?

I'm not sure what your'e asking?? If you wish to be close to Palm Springs, it's not. It is 4 towns to the East, past Cathedral City, Rancho Mirage, Palm Desert and La Quinta.

The traffic right now is heavy so it's a good 30 minutes on Highway 111 from the Hyatt to downtown PS.


It's a nice large convention-type hotel and if you got a good rate- then stick with it. Otherwise, can you use the certificate at the Hyatt in Palm Springs?

You can also take I-10 to cut across. It looks like it's going out of the way on the map, but it can actually save you time anyways.

I wouldn't suggest that at all.

You are going to the Indian Canyons which are south of town and even the downtown area is easier to access from staying on one main road, which your hotel is also on. Highway 111 / Palm Canyon will take you thoughout the Valley without confusion.

Besides, you are on vacation and I assume you want to see the area and not drive all the way out to the Interstate and all the way back into Palm Springs to save a few minutes.
