I’ve stayed at this property several times and recently returned to find the rooms have been nicely refreshed. For Marriott regulars, it’s not the “typical” Renaissance refresh ~ as they have added local touches from a little art deco table to area-inspired art. Especially liked the pillows on the sofa.

I’ve stayed at this property several times and recently returned to find the rooms have been nicely refreshed. For Marriott regulars, it’s not the “typical” Renaissance refresh ~ as they have added local touches from a little art deco table to area-inspired art. Especially liked the pillows on the sofa. Nice job! Otherwise, obviously I like this property as I have repeatedly returned. Its location is excellent, not far from the airport or downtown Palm Springs, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. Bonus points for lovely views from the balconies! Areas for improvement: Parking fee is a little high, especially with no shaded areas. Need to have some control over guests blasting music poolside via portable speakers. Read less

This is my second time staying at this hotel and I love it. Before entering the hotel I was greeted by the valet. The lobby smells wonderful. I seriously want to know what they do to make it smell so good. The front desk staff were friendly and checked me in quickly. The room was spacious and clean.

This is my second time staying at this hotel and I love it. Before entering the hotel I was greeted by the valet. The lobby smells wonderful. I seriously want to know what they do to make it smell so good. The front desk staff were friendly and checked me in quickly. The room was spacious and clean. The fridge froze my stuff but it was nice to have cold water after the day in the heat. The pool area is my favourite part of this hotel. It’s big, clean and well kept. The staff attend frequently to take food and drink orders. The parking fee of $30 is high but there is no resort fee so if you aren’t driving, it’s a deal compared to the hotels that charge a resort fee. I don’t understand the negative reviews. I’ll be back to this hotel in the future for sure. Read less

The location cannot be beat. You are mere blocks from the main drag of Palm Springs. Even in the heat, you can walk downtown or an take a really inexpensive uber.

The location cannot be beat. You are mere blocks from the main drag of Palm Springs. Even in the heat, you can walk downtown or an take a really inexpensive uber. Super close to the airport too - with a free shuttle to boot. We stayed in a suite. The bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed our balcony. The bathrooms were nothing to write home about in terms of luxury or update. Our room was sparkling clean. The staff was very pleasant. We came to PS to relax and use the pool and while the pool was lovely in terms of upkeep, our experience was diminished by the fact that several guests were allowed to blast their own music -- to the point where one lady had a DJ style speaker (and no, she was not the DJ that the property supplies on Saturday, which was fun) - without the pool staff really doing anything about it. While I'm sure they were having fun, it was kind of a bummer for those of us who were there for some R & R. It was competing with the music playing by the hotel at the fool and was really jarring.

Came here once a few years back. Liked the resort vibe so thought we’d check it out again. All we came for was to chill by the pool. So disgusted at 12 noon literally HUNDREDS of dead bugs floating around the pool and hot tub. This made me question the safety and sanitization of this hotel.

So disgusted at 12 noon literally HUNDREDS of dead bugs floating around the pool and hot tub. This made me question the safety and sanitization of this hotel. How is it ok and acceptable to not monitor this so early in the day. I could understand if it was later in the evening but 12 noon? Dead bugs literally everywhere!!!! The rooms are fine but we came to chill at this resort like hotel and primarily chill at the pool and in the pool. Also not too impressed with Calling down needing amenities and being denied and ignored. Definitely not coming back. Read less
