Overview

There are plenty of on-site amenities, including five pools and six dining options
A daily resort fee applies

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 Bonvoy points).
