When this Hotel opened back in 1987, it was considered the resort to go to in the Coachella Valley, for it was and is truly amazing. Built on an incredible 450 acres, this monster resort is all inclusive, offering World Class Golf, a variety of restaurants, a state if the art Spa, nightclub, shops, a huge pool and you can even take a gondola ride through the resorts enchanting water ways, and even to dinner at the Mikado resturant if it suits you. This resort is so fantastic, that it is recommended for you to go and visit it, even if you stay somewhere else, for it will be well worth the trip.74-855 Country Club Dr.Palm Desert, Ca 922601-888-538-9459
It’s true by being a local I don’t often stay in valley hotels, but there has been the occasional staycation situation that has arisen giving me the opportunity to play tourist in my own backyard (and no, I’m not talking about pitching a tent on my lawn).
And because our guest room is inhabited by our prince of a cat Keebler, I won’t be able to offer that kind of hospitality to you. So instead, I offer up these Hotels, B&B’s and Resorts for your convenience and enjoyment
