One of Palm Desert, California’s, signature hotel properties recently finalized its biggest-ever redesign.

The JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa is home to 884 guestrooms and nearly 1.25 million square feet of event space. Every facet of the property has been redesigned ahead of the property’s grand re-opening in January.

One of the first things guests notice when they arrive is the reimagined lobby entrance. Water displays, art installations and an atrium boost the aesthetic and atmosphere of the entire lobby.

The property has 884 guestrooms, including 101 new suites. All of the accommodations include bulk amenities and hydration offerings to reduce plastic waste. The property’s event space honors Frank Sinatra with a Mid-Century design and multiple shades of blue for “Ol’ Blue Eyes” covering the Sinatra Ballroom.

There is also a large amount of outdoor space and venues, giving guests plenty of space to spread out and relax. Finally, there are new spa treatments and wellness offerings, making sure guests never lose sight of relaxation while visiting.

Check out the hotel’s renovations for yourself.
