Hotel at a Glance: Indian Wells Resort Hotel

Founded in 1957 by Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, Indian Wells Resort Hotel attracted a roster of A-list guests from the get-go. Designed as an exclusive getaway, the resort gave celebrities a chance to golf, play tennis, and lounge poolside in the desert sun. You can follow in their footsteps today at the retro-chic hotel, which channels the glamour of Palm Springs’s mid-century heyday.

  • Tee off on Indian Wells Country Club’s private golf course—where Presidents Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Gerald Ford once played—or on Indian Wells Golf Resort’s two championship golf courses, which are both ranked on Golf Week magazine’s “Best Courses You Can Play” in California list.
  • Perks: Your stay includes welcome drinks plus daily hot breakfast.
  • Where you’ll stay: Guest rooms’ private balconies offer views of the pool or the desert landscape. One-bedroom suites look out on the Santa Rosa Mountains and the country club.
  • Ol’ Blue Eyes was the inspiration for the onsite restaurant and lounge, Frank’s Place. Savor Italian dishes such as veal scaloppini and enjoy live music.
  • Sip tropical drinks and relax poolside at Palm Terrace, which overlooks the golf course’s 11th green.

Indian Wells, California: Desert City with Outdoor Recreation and Hollywood History

The temperate weather and tucked-away feel of Indian Wells—located 17 miles southeast of Palm Springs—attracted Hollywood royalty to the area in the 1950s and ’60s. President Dwight D. Eisenhower enjoyed the area so much that he made Indian Wells his winter home.

Though it experienced a lull at the turn of the century, the greater Palm Springs area has emerged once again as a vacation hot spot. The sun shines roughly 350 days a year here, so the abundant hiking trails and designer golf courses stay open all year. Luxury spas and boutique shops fill Palm Springs’s glitzy downtown area, which is surrounded by chic mid-century hotels and elaborate, Mediterranean-inspired villas.

Beautiful venue🥰 clean and welcoming. The floors and bed need a little updating but otherwise perfect. With the group-on you pay the resort fee and parking which is an additional $50. You do get free breakfast (choices are breakfast burrito, breakfast sandwich and basic breakfast with sausage and bacon), as well as free adult drinks depending on the amount you claim to stay, I got 2 vouchers

My experience was absolutely amazing! I don’t understand the negative reviews it’s baffling. If you want to read a legit honest review here you go. I go into each situation without expectations. This hotel was better than I expected. The decor and the staff very nice. My family wanted a place to just relax and sit by the pool and do nothing. This place was it and the price was right. Loved it!

Even though we used our amenities daily (shampoo and coffee) they were not replaced either day despite us leaving a daily tip.

We had a king room that was nice but seemed liked it needed to be swept, otherwise we had a great time. There were some rude guests but that’s not the hotels fault.

The stay was nice but we paid resort fees which wasn't really clear on the purchase. Other than that it was a nice area and lots to do.
