Great location, friendly staff, well appointed rooms, nicely manicured property.
It is by far the nicest of the larger resorts in Palm Springs. Of course you can drive further to Rancho Mirage or Palm Dessert, but for this town, it's very nice.
The hotel is nice and trendy upon arrival with a large, open air lobby. Upbeat music playing in the background and color changing floor panels leading you towards the lobby bar. Front desk staff was engaging and efficient upon arrival.
As a Platinum Member of Marriot Rewards, we were offered an upgraded suite with a nice view of the surrounding mountains, overlooking the pool area. Rooms are spacious, have two flat screen televisions, incredibly comfortable beds and a nice balcony to relax on.
Breakfast restaurant staff was awesome all 3 morning and remembered our beverage orders each day. Beverages were always full, food was fresh and prices were very reasonable (considering it's a resort). The only noticeable thing was that tables sat dirty for extended periods of time. At one point I looked around to see 16 dirty tables within my view.
The lobby bar had a few California made craft brews on tap which made me very happy. It's nice to see more choices besides Bud Light and Heineken. Again, prices were reasonable for both drinks and food. Management take note: If you want your guests to drink and eat at your property, keep your prices reasonable. If you over charge, we will always walk out the front door to local restaurants instead of spending our money at the property. I applaud this Renaissance for not overcharging. Service at this bar is hit or miss unfortunately. The bartenders don't seem to have the ability to multitask and don't look up often to serve guests. I waited for a few minutes one evening and a guest seated at the bar said "wave your hands around like a crazy person, otherwise they won't see you."
Overall, a nice stay. Recommended for your next stay in Palm Springs.
