    The Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage
    Rancho Mirage, CA
    #1 in Best Hotels in Palm Springs
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 1701 reviewsTripAdvisor (1701)
    Free WiFi

    This Ritz outpost is located about 9 miles southeast of Palm Springs, California, in Rancho Mirage. The hotel's suites feature balconies, stone bathrooms with separate showers and soaking tubs, beds with 400-thread-count Frette linens and Nespresso coffee makers. But with the resort's ample amenities, guests won't want to spend all their time in their rooms. The property has multiple pools and a spa boasting treatments like the Coconut Body Polish and the Sec-He Rock Ritual. Plus, nearby hiking trails and the on-site fitness center offer ample opportunities for exercise. When it's time for a bite to eat, try the casual cuisine at the Air Pool Bar or go for a more upscale meal at  either The Edge Steakhouse or the State Fare Bar & Kitchen. Recent guests said the hotel's setting is beautiful but warn of exorbitant prices for everything from food at the on-site restaurants to the mandatory valet parking. Keep in mind that because of its Marriott ties, the Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage allows Marriott Rewards members to earn perks or use points to cover stays at the property.

    Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel
    Palm Springs, CA
    #2 in Best Hotels in Palm Springs
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 345 reviewsTripAdvisor (345)
    Free WiFi

    Stay at the Kimpton Rowan Palm Springs Hotel and you'll enjoy stellar service and a bevy of top-notch amenities, according to former guests. Centrally located in Palm Springs, California, by the Palm Springs Art Museum, this IHG Hotels outpost offers an outdoor pool, a fitness center, two Mediterranean-inspired restaurants and two bars, including the city's only poolside rooftop option. Desert-chic decor is on display throughout the property, from the lobby bar to the pool deck to the 153 guest rooms and suites. Each modern accommodation boasts wooden furnishings, one or more large windows with city or San Jacinto Mountain vistas and a white, gray and blue color palette. Plus, you'll find standard Kimpton room amenities like yoga mats and stocked minibars, as well as Atelier Bloem toiletries, bathrobes and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs. Keep in mind, a $35 daily resort fee that covers additional perks, such as in-room Wi-Fi access, valet parking, airport transfers and car service in the downtown area, applies. Some previous visitors bemoaned this extra charge, though most felt the hotel's positives outweighed this drawback. If you're an IHG Rewards Club member, you can help offset the resort fee by paying for your room with accrued points.

    La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort

    Free WiFi

    With the Santa Rosa Mountains as its backdrop, the La Quinta Resort & Club has been a desert getaway for the Hollywood elite since its opening in the 1920s. Stars such as Greta Garbo and Clark Gable used to seek refuge within the resort's whitewashed casitas, located around 127 miles from Los Angeles. Guest rooms maintain a relaxed yet luxurious ambiance with soothing design accents, leather furniture and fireplaces (in most rooms). The resorts' amenities will also provide visitors with all they need for a relaxing or an exciting getaway. Summer temperatures in the Coachella Valley can enter the triple digits, but La Quinta boasts 41 outdoor swimming pools to keep guests cool and comfortable. If it's not too hot, take advantage of this Waldorf Astoria-affiliated resort's five golf courses or the on-site tennis center, complete with 23 courts and private instruction. Recent travelers lauded La Quinta's seven in-house restaurants, especially the Mexican fare of Adobe Grill. However, get ready for a lot of walking: La Quinta's grounds are manicured and lovely, but it's a trek to span the property. Members of the Hilton Honors program can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here, but make sure you're aware of the daily resort fee that applies to all guests.

    Retro, hip, luxurious – the list of adjectives that recent guests attach to this hotel is long and overwhelmingly positive.

Additional amenities include the Palm Springs Yacht Club spa, three pools, two tennis courts, a lemonade stand and four eateries, which all earn guests' praise. However, travelers warn that the room bills at this Leading Hotels of the World property are steep, especially when considering the added resort fee. But remember: Leaders Club members receive perks when staying here. Just a few miles from Palm Springs International Airport and downtown Palm Springs, this hotel's location is ideal.

    The Colony Palms Hotel caters to stylish guests looking for trendy accommodations in the heart of Palm Springs. Originally opened in 1936 by reputed mobster Al Wertheimer, this boutique property has quite the storied past: It housed an illicit brothel and speakeasy in the 30s before switching ownership and becoming the Hollywood hot spot for the next several decades. Such famed names as Frank Sinatra, Ronald Reagan and Zsa Zsa Gabor have all passed through the Colony Palms. Today, the property remains chic and trendy, with guest rooms boasting stylish red and black decor and Italian linens, as well as flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. For many guests, the highlight of a stay at the Colony Palms is the cuisine served at the Purple Palm Restaurant & Bar. The in-house, Moroccan-inspired spa also earns rave reviews for its varied treatments. What's more, th gorgeous, 65-foot saltwater pool also provides stunning views of the surrounding desert and mountains. However, this property does not provide a fitness center, and a daily resort fee is tacked on to your nightly rate.

    You wouldn't know that you're in the middle of the desert at this resplendent resort. Lakes, pools and verdant golf greens surround the hotel. And you won't be hoping for an oasis to appear over the horizon  guests of the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, California, have access to a Starbucks, a Japanese steakhouse and four other eateries. Visitors love hitting balls on the two 18-hole golf courses and on the tennis courts. And for a more relaxing day, the resort boasts multiple pools, a whirlpool and a spa. Guest rooms here take their inspiration from the desert, with decor comprising warm red and brown hues, but those who hang their hats here are hardly roughing it. Each room comes a balcony, floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathrooms and flat-screen TVs. Although this oasis is costly, especially when considering the added resort fees, JW Marriott frequenters happily fork over the cash for the luxuries they so relish (and perhaps save some with their Marriott Rewards points).
