Renaissance Palm Springs

Palm Springs, USA

The hotel

A mix of style and fun, Renaissance Palm Springs is a welcoming desert hideaway. Reserve yourself a cabana by one of the biggest pools in the area, relax among the palm trees and gaze at the mountains, or maybe book yourself a massage at the spa. Rocks Lounge is the place to be for getting social, with coffee, cocktails and great food — the evening fire pits adding nicely to the laidback Californian vibe. Fancy exploring the restaurants downtown? It’s not far at all, but if it’s too hot to walk in the heat, the hotel will drive you down.

Good location. Nice fitness center. Quite spread out, fair amount on walking to get to rooms. Parking is pricy always a downside I can never quite fathom at venues wanting guests to travel to from great distances, and paying a premium price for a night stay (279). Rooms clean well appointed suites. Like the Aveda products. Some things a… Read more

The check-in process was quick and then we were off on our way. The upgraded suite was spacious, although it could use more decorations and artwork. The hotel breakfast buffet was delicious and the cook making the omelettes was very friendly. The pool area was clean and there were towels out. The self-parking was easy, and the hotel turned out to be a lovely and quick location for us to re-charge. Read less

At check in at 3 PM on a Sunday the desk clerk at first insisted that no rooms were available yet. After pecking on keyboard for ages, he finally produced a regular room in far eastern wing. The CONFIRMED suite upgrade just wasn’t available. No recognition of Titanium Bonvoy status. All this despite parking lots deserted and lobby totally… Read more
At check in at 3 PM on a Sunday the desk clerk at first insisted that no rooms were available yet. After pecking on keyboard for ages, he finally produced a regular room in far eastern wing. The CONFIRMED suite upgrade just wasn’t available. No recognition of Titanium Bonvoy status. All this despite parking lots deserted and lobby totally empty of any guest activity. Later inquired about breakfast from another desk clerk who provided a $10 food credit. Desk clerk emphasized free drinks at lobby bar at 4 PM for Christmas. Dropped back and female bartender just glared at me. [I was nicely dressed for evening]. A very large bowl of premixed beverage was 10 yards away in lobby. Asked bartender about it. She icily said only she could serve it when she could get around to it. This is not just some transient place off I-10. A very much higher standard of service is expected and deserved. Read less

Beautiful resort- stayed for a Conference and the rooms for meetings were spacious and the service great. My own room was clean, spacious with a little balcony. The cleaning lady was friendly and would always asked if I needed anything. Great stay, great sushi restaurant as well.

I loved this hotel. It is in a perfect location. We often walked out for dinner. I gave it a four for three reasons: First they charge $30 USD (($20 for members) PER NIGHT for parking when there is literally across a path, an adjacent parking lot (overflow for convention centre) for FREE. Also, I don’t think we had to pay for parking anywhere… Read more
I loved this hotel. It is in a perfect location. We often walked out for dinner. I gave it a four for three reasons: First they charge $30 USD (($20 for members) PER NIGHT for parking when there is literally across a path, an adjacent parking lot (overflow for convention centre) for FREE. Also, I don’t think we had to pay for parking anywhere else in the city. It’s outrageous. Second, there are no glasses in the room. A sign tells you how pure their mineral tap water is, but they want to force you to buy the $8 bottle of water I guess. My only other con was that I am accustomed to a coffee station in the lobby which was not here. Everything else was super great! The rooms are very comfortable. The staff are really awesome. The pool area is gorgeous. The fire pits and long rectangle fire place were magic. The pool side servers are really lovely. I don’t know if I would return - the parking charges really bothered me.
