“Amazing Midweek Getaway”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

My wife and I enjoyed the swing into summer golf package. Arrived on Tue. 7/15 and stayed for 3 nights. Our room was upgraded at check in to pool and lake view at no extra charge. Unlimited golf for the two of us that was supposed to start after 10 am each day. Golf staff knew it was hot so told us we could start as early as we would like. The 2 courses in very good shape, but greens recently plugged. All staff on property were awesome. Great restaurant recommendations. Room was clean, but older features. Shower was ver small. $50 resort credit each day was a nice perk. Food on property solid, but expensive. Overall, we would highly recommend.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room over looking pools and lake.

The surroundings and wildlife are beautiful and situated right by the golf course for those who want to play, failing that the pools are pretty and gym well equipped. There are several restaurant options which are nothing special except for the sushi in the lobby bar which is pretty good. The rooms are a good size but due to the size of the resort some are quite a walk. It can be noisy due to the club so ask for a room away from that if you are looking for a more peaceful stay. Overall, I was impressed with the hotel and the amount there is to do there without having to even leave, it even has a full Starbucks:)

Room Tip: Ask to be away from the club if you want a peaceful stay and on the left side if you're doing a...

This is a great Marriott property. Go to the lobby and take the boat trip, even if it is just from one wing of the facility to the other. This is a peaceful place even though it is very large. If you are not a golfer, enjoy the grounds and restaurants. There is a very well stocked store just outside the complex where you can get food and beverage at a much reduced price. Oh, the concierge is great. Car rental is easy and on site. There is a Friday night even downtown every week. Local foods and other similar items to take home.

If your looking to relax, Marriott Desert Springs Resort a great place to relax with many things to do within a 10 mile radius. You have many high end shops off El Paseo Street, places to eat, too many to mention! Beautiful pool and spa area with great poolside service, if your into exercise look no further. You can walk around the outside of the property on the sidewalk that is 3.6 miles around and very pedestrian friendly! (bring your I Pod and water bottle and start walking) This resort has 2 golf courses with great courses to challenge your skills in the PGA minded swinger! It is very kid friendly and allows the kids lots of space. Just minutes away you have the Living Desert Zoo , minutes to Palm Springs Wet and Wild Water Park, movie theaters in many cities near by. There are local parks, the Palm Desert Aquatic Center and Civic Center Park are just down the street. If you are there on the weekends during season (October to May) there is the COD Street Fair at the local Junior College (07:00 AM to 3:00). So pack your bags get away from all the traffic and the kaos of everyday living and let it all go! You work hard so why not treat yourself to a special time at one of the nicest place in the Coachella Valley near Palm Springs.

Room Tip: The airport is 25 minutes from the hotel. If you are here to golf you can choose to golf at many of...

I was at the hotel for a convention and ended up staying on a few extra days. All of the staff were very helpful and friendly. Things were pricy, absolutely, but with the amount of amenities offered, it came out feeling like a great deal. I definitely recommend a visit to the spa for a massage and relaxing sauna!

Room Tip: Request something away from the atrium and away from busy nightclub "Costas" if you're...

Green Features: Not one single recycling bin to be found around the rooms, lobby, or pool. A bit disappointing, too, that there were no reminders to hang towels to save resources, etc.

I stayed at this hotel for a convention and I can't say enough good things about the hotel. The service was excellent! The spa divine! Meals were hot and unbelievable service for 1000+ ladies. Whether for a couples get away or a large convention, it's the best in the desert!

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the pool-it's beautiful!

I have been going to the Marriott for about 15 years off and on. I went 2 weeks ago and was concerned w the bad reviews that stated it was old and needed to be updated. This resort reflected my positive past experiences. It was an extra special trip because it was a SISTERS trip. We all wanted a facial simultaneously. Initially they did not have any openings but the Manager made arrangements so the esthetician stayed longer to accommodate us. We attempted to give her a tip, however, she refused and said she was just doing her job which was to make our stay comfortable. Wow!!! So impressive with her kindness and customer service. Needless to say, We loved our facials and the spa was simply blissful. We soon learned, the customer service was the same throughout the hotel. I love the rooms, despite the cottage cheese ceilings. They are adult size rooms and bathrooms unlike these modern so called boutique hotels where the rooms are tiny and expensive. The resort itself reminds me of a former era where the pools, grounds and restaurants were large and comfortable. I loved it so much, I am returning in 2 weeks with my other half so he can golf while I go to the spa. Can't wait to be spoiled again!

Room Tip: Request a view. Can't remember our room number but we had a small pond near a parking lot.
