We sent postcards from Marriott's Vacation Club Desert Spring Villas I & II last July and recently learned from the Insiders Lobby that two great properties in the California desert have just reopened or are about to reopen.  Check out the Renaissance Palm Springs and Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa in Indian Wells.

 

Including the JW Desert Springs and 4 Marriott Vacation Clubs, California's Coachella Valley is home to 14 Marriott brands. The reopening of the Renaissance Palm Springs (Cat 5) and Renaissance Esmeralda Resort & Spa (Cat 6) expand the choices available for accomodations, dining, meetings, conferences, restful recreation and Marriott Rewards point redemption.

    Nestled between the Esmeralda and the Grand Hyatt is the I.W. Club, owned by the city of Indian Wells CA, and managed by a very competent professional team.

     

    The setting and the facilities rival those of many of the private clubs that dot the CA 111 landscape, but without the need to pass through a gate, to be a member, or to pay exorbitant prices.

     

    Worth a trip when heading toward La Quinta in the great Coachella Valley of Southern CA.

    We just got back from a stay at the Renaissance.  We loved it but college kids do not bother us.  Many families were intimidated by their vocabulary and actions in the pool area.  But it was Spring Break month!  The security seemed to be a little too friendly with them but we later realized that it was their way of keeping a really close eye on them after the first few complaints.  As for the rooms, the hotel and the location, EXCELLENT!!! Rooms were pretty large, but maybe we were upgraded. The lobby was inviting with a wide array of board games and magazines set out. (I never played so much Monopoly on one trip).  The best part was the evening shuttle into town so you don't have to deal with parking and driving when you shouldn't.  We hope to go back there after the heat has passed.

    Great post, thanks.  Did you by any chance dine at John Henry's on Sunrise at Tahquitz Canyon?  One of our favorite places, the prices are ridiculously cheap, the food good, the drinks huge and the surroundings nice to make you want to come back.

    Stayed at this property in January of this year.  Very nice - very much in line with the "groovy" look and feel of up to date Renassiance properties.

    Only complaint was slow / inconsistent service at breakfast.  The staff seemed poorly coordinated around who serves coffee and juice etc.  Our menu order breakfast also took a bit longer than it should have to arrive but the quality of of the food was quite good once it did.
