Spacious Suites in Golf-Centric Palm Desert
Located in one of the world’s most popular golf regions, Homewood Suites by Hilton Palm Desert sits within a 15-minute drive of more than 100 courses. Less than two miles away is Desert Willow Golf Resort's Firecliff golf course, named one of the best places to play by Golf Digest, whereas the Shadow Ridge course designed by Hall of Fame swinger Nick Faldo is just three miles west. Several other attractions are also nearby, ranging from a mile-long shopping boulevard to The Living Desert, an exotic wildlife habitat. All guest rooms have fully equipped kitchens with granite countertops and two-burner stoves. Dining nooks and separate living areas give guests plenty of room for stretching out or for hosting another movie-awards show. In the morning, head to the first-floor Lodge dining room for a complimentary hot breakfast of waffles, eggs, and fruit. The hotel hosts a Welcome Home reception Monday through Thursday evenings, which includes a light meal and complimentary beer and wine. Though Homewood Suites by Hilton Palm Desert sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
