At the JW Marriott Desert Springs, over 230,000 square feet of versatile meeting space sets the stage for productivity. The 450-acre resort is located just a short drive from the Palm Springs Convention Center and provides first-class catering and event services, an on-site business center, and flexible indoor/outdoor spaces.

All having been named as one of CVENT's Top 100 Most Popular Meeting Resorts in North America, The Westin Mission Hills Golf Resort & Spa, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa, and La Quinta Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, are three prime full-service resorts in the desert.

Stay

Whether you’re looking for boutique hotels and inns, luxurious resorts, vacation rentals or dog-friendly properties, Greater Palm Springs has a room with your name on it. New to the scene are Hotel Paseo and the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs. Hotel Paseo, an Autograph Collection Hotel, is the first boutique hotel in the El Paseo area of Palm Desert. Guests can choose from a more traditional room, or one of nine specialty suites - such as the Billiards Suite, featuring an in-room billiards table, wet bar and Shinola record player with a music collection – or really gain a unique experience by reserving the hotel’s vintage 1950s Airstream Trailer as their room. At seven stories high with a rooftop pool, restaurant and bar, the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs boasts impressive views of the Coachella Valley coupled with modern design. The property features 153 rooms, four restaurants and bars, as well as a penthouse event space.

Be whisked away to the lap of luxury at the Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa, Parker Palm Springs, or The Ritz Carlton, Rancho Mirage. Reawaken your sense of wonder at the AAA, Four-Diamond awarded Renaissance Indian Wells Resort & Spa. Set against the Santa Rosa Mountains, this resort boasts championship golf, sizzling nightlife and a sand beach pool. Guests at the Jonathan Adler-designed Park Palm Springs will find chilled towels by the saltwater pool, hammocks hanging from towering palm trees and private massage services that come to them. Each suite at The Ritz Carlton, Rancho Mirage features a private balcony or patio, a private sitting area and fire pit for relaxing in the evening. Of course, all three properties offer impeccable spas and restaurants, perfect to indulge in after a long day of meetings.

For something a little more quaint, check out the popular boutique hotel, L’Horizon Resort and Spa. This William F. Cody-designed estate offers guests a taste of the Old Hollywood glamor that put Greater Palm Springs on the map. No two rooms are alike, but all are equipped with lavish touches like Le Labo bath products and 600-thread count linens, not to mention complimentary massages by the infinity pool.

Play

From outdoor adventures, to shopping and golf, to soaking in healing mineral water, this Southern California destination knows how to have fun. For the adrenaline junkies, there’s BMW Performance Driving School West. One of only two in the country, this trailblazing concept leaves comfort zones in the dust with the 1.4-mile road course where drivers are encouraged to step on the gas. For a more scenic activity, board the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway to experience breathtaking views up the cliffs of Chino Canyon. Gain over 6,000 feet of elevation during the ten-minute ride in one of the world’s largest rotating tramcars.

Palm Springs believes in combining great things to make them even better and the latest pairings come in the form of FootGolf and Golf Cart Polo. FootGolf, a combination of golf and soccer, welcomes players of all ages and sizes with games that last about 90 minutes for 9-holes. Golf Cart Polo features authentic polo players in the drivers seat while guests ride shotgun wielding a mallet and testing their polo skills.

To see the area from a different point of view, check out an Architecture Tours or the ATV Experience. Experience Palm Springs' world-famous collection of midcentury modern architecture on a personal tour with Trevor O'Donnell, one of the area's most knowledgeable and entertaining guides. Or venture to outdoor sites like ancient granite rock formations, Red Canyon and Mecca Hills Canyon. The A/C, guided Jeep tours offer comfort, style, and fun for all ages.
