Hotel offers 41 on-site pools and provides access to five golf courses
A daily resort fee applies
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 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.

Critic Reviews



Returning guests rave about the attention to detail, the amazing memory of the staff for the proclivities of guests, and the way La Quinta manages to preserve a kind of genuine warmth among its employees that usually fades to weariness at even the best resort properties elsewhere.



This Waldorf Astoria resort boasts five golf courses and 17 tennis courts, not to mention other lavish amenities for individuals, couples, families, and pets. With a playground, cribs, high chairs, kids menus, children’s salon services, and kid-friendly pools, it’s the kind of place where multiple generations can relax and enjoy traveling together.



La Quinta, as you by now have gathered, has nothing to do with the budget motel chain, and its history could fill a book.
