For the second time, we’re fortunate to be staying at the La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in La Quinta, California, just south of Palm Springs.
We stayed here nearly four years ago (article link) as we made our way to the California Coast for a 10-day road trip. This time, we’re here for a weekend travel conference.
The legendary La Quinta Resort & Club opened in 1926 as a desert retreat for Hollywood’s elite and has played host to world-famous politicians, renowned artists, celebrated athletes and international dignitaries.

Together with PGA WEST, the resort offers five unique golf courses designed by legends Nicklaus, Dye and Norman. Also available: Spa La Quinta, 23 tennis courts, seven restaurants and seasonal live outdoor musical entertainment.
Located just south of Palm Springs, California, we find the La Quinta Resort & Club to be a perfect getaway location with all of the perks, restaurants, world-class golf, and nearby sightseeing spots to keep the discriminating luxury traveler very content for days on end.
The resort features 620 guest rooms, as well as 98 1-, 2- and 3-bedroom villas with a Spanish hacienda design and desert decor clustered around 41 pools and 53 hot spas and offer views of colorful grounds or the Santa Rosa Mountains.
