Hotel at a Glance: Holiday Inn Express Palm Desert

Despite its name, Palm Desert is an oasis of shopping, golfing, and nature. And at Holiday Inn Express Palm Desert, guests are well positioned to take advantage of the town's attractions. Just four miles away, guests can tee up at the famous Desert Willow Golf Resort, and less than a mile down the street lies the high-end retailers on El Paseo. Located on California State Route 111, the hotel is also well posed for day trips to the nearby resort town of Palm Springs.

  • Try the cinnamon buns and other hot items from the daily complimentary breakfast bar.
  • Don't have time for a sit-down meal?: Grab a cup of joe from the lobby.
  • Lace up your hiking boots, and head over to the Hopalong Cassidy Trail, a moderate 8.2-mile climb that leads hikers past beautiful wild flowers and picturesque desert scenes.
  • Test your luck at one of the area's six casinos, including the Around the World Casino and the Fantasy Spring Casino.
  • Beat the desert heat with a dip in the hotel's outdoor pool.

Palm Desert, California: Shopping and Wildlife in Scenic Coachella Valley

Palm Desert shares the desert landscape and resort atmosphere of nearby Palm Springs. Palm Desert's El Paseo is known as the Rodeo Drive of the desert for its art galleries and high-end retailers such as Gucci and Ralph Lauren.

Palm Desert is also a gateway to Joshua Tree National Park, located about 40 miles away. The desert park is famous for its unusual geologic formations and mountains of twisted rock and is home to wildlife including desert bighorn sheep and golden eagles. Wildlife sightings are guaranteed at The Living Desert, a zoo, botanical garden, and animal hospital in Palm Desert. As guests stroll through geographical regions, they see flora and fauna indigenous to that area, which can include giraffes or jaguars.

Pool needed some serious filtering. Breakfast is nice. Rooms are OK with comfortable beds, but the place is rather old and not very appealing.

So much was broken at the hotel! No ice machine, all pulled apart (had to go out and purchase ice). Washing machine ‘out of order’. Hot water unit for tea and hot chocolate empty (it’s not plumbed in so it has to be manually filled by staff - who don’t bother to do this!). Nice rooms but the pool area has weeds - feels very uncared for. The pool towels are not much bigger than postage stamps!
