First off this is a beautiful property. The location is as pretty as any you will find in the world. The grounds are well maintained and the smell of roses is everywhere you go. The buildings, lobby and common areas are nice and welcoming. The golf course looks outstanding (did not get to play). The pool area is great and...

This hotel is very nice, their personnel are wonderful especially the valets, they work their behinds off, deserving nice tips. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Coffeemaker and refrigerator in room, which is a nice addition. Robes are usually in room, if not call for them. This is a busy hotel with many convention type activities, if you are looking...

I am easy to please, but this was an unfortunate experience. The front desk was actually rude and unhelpful. We waited 25 minutes for our waiter to return with ordered drinks, and ended up having to go find him and carry them to our table ourselves. The beds are comfy but don't expect clean sheets, as mine were not changed...

Thank you for taking the time to provide a detailed review of your stay and we apologize for the service short comings you experienced. It was disappointing to read about the bar service and housekeeping attentiveness. We will certainly address these areas with the appropriate hotel leaders. Thanks again for the valuable feedback.

This place was very nice, well-kept with plenty of amenities. Our room was spacious, comfortable, and quiet (we did not face the lobby, which I'm glad because it did appear to get noisier the closer we walked to the main bar area). The pool looked wonderful, but we did not swim. The setting and location were great - close enough...

Stayed for 4 days for the BNP Parabas tennis tournament. Hotel was at capacity and we still managed to get upgraded to a corner room because of our Marriott status. For such a busy week, though, it seemed the hotel was slightly understaffed. Wasn't a problem for us, but things just took longer (food, housekeeping, etc) We saw many of...

I have not stayed here for over 15 years. The valet was very welcoming and friendly. Check in was quick and friendly. The rooms well appointed and clean. The pool is still very nice. Try priceline there are deals to be had.

Enjoyed 3 days attending the 2017 BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament, staying at the Renaissance. Many of the professional players stayed here too, adding a "who did you see today" element to our stay. My #1 comment is that the sheets are uber soft. If it wasn't for tennis, would have stayed in bed during our entire stay. The hotel...

This is an excellent place to stay when going to the Indian Wells Tennis Garden for the BNP Paribas Tourney. This is a clean hotel with friendly staff, large rooms and a wonderful pool. The pool Bar was great and had a good menu as well as full cocktail service.

The rooms are great, the bed is so soft amd good. And the whole resort is just great, the pool, tennis court, etc. I would return for sure. Even the restaurant is very good, has Hotel prices but still the quality of the food is good. Ask for the late check out. I was able to enjoy a little bit...

This was my second stay here for work conventions. They do a great job hosting our large group. Rooms are quiet, beds are super comfy, food is good, setting is beautiful. I do wish they had a airport shuttle though.
