"Get Away from the City"

Want to get away from the city? Here's the place to go. Conveniently located a reasonable driving distance from LA, San Diego, and especially the Inland Empire, the Desert Springs Resort offers a true retreat from it all.
This holiday season I wanted to go somewhere and not think of the stress that can occur. My kids and I ventured out to the desert and I purposed not to get back into the car until we were ready to return home. Success! We stayed put.

Positives: With the amount of restaurants (including a Starbucks!), we didn't have to leave the property to eat. The Rockwood Grill was our favorite.
The Views!!! Our room over looked the pool/lake/mountains. It was an exquisite view that I couldn't get enough of.
The boat on the lake. Yes, this resort has a lake! And little 12 passenger boats tour it regularly. We took the last boat of the night and had a magical experience of seeing the lights around the property and the gorgeous swans that call the lake home.
The "lawn activities." We woke up Sunday morning and enjoyed a round of putting golf in the front of the resort. How fun! There's also basketball, tennis, and a few other sports to entertain your kids for hours.
The POOLS. Enough said. FOUR pools. It was December, snow on the mountains, and my kids and i were laying by the pool in the sun. You can't beat that.
Extra entertainment. We saw the Rockin' Christmas Musical Review and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Negatives: I don't really have any. It truly was a great experience and my kids are still talking about it. The rooms were good; our room wasn't large but it held two double beds and our bathroom was sizable with separate bath tub and shower.

This will be another short get away when we need to leave the rat race of the city again.

Disclosure: I was an invited guest of Desert Springs. All opinions are my own.

"This one stands above the rest"

Among the
many lodging options available in the
Palm Desert area, this one stands above
the rest. As you enter this immense resort, you will be surrounded by the
sounds of water flowing and birds calling.
Marriott’s preferred mode of transport?
Gondolas, Venetian style. While
some find this a bit Disneyland-esque,
people still flock here for the dramatic
ambience of this 884-room mega-resort.
A full-service spa, shopping colonnade,
and two eighteen-hole golf courses
mean there is something to please every
member of the family.
This sprawling resort is home to the
Kid’s Klub, where kids can spend quality
time pursuing their own recreational
activities while Mom and Dad are on the
golf course or in the spa. Designed for
ages four to twelve (kids younger than
age four require a babysitter, available
through the concierge), the program
operates seven days a week and features
arts and crafts, putt-putt golf, boat
rides, animal tours, lunch, and films such
as James and the Giant Peach.
