Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa Rancho Mirage Reviews

Normal resort, but not much character Jan 20, 2011
Lisa and I stayed here because we had never visited Palm Springs before, and we were able to get this place on Priceline for ~$92/night. We only spent one night here, but that was probably enough.

Location: It's actually about ~20 minutes or so from downtown Palm Springs. Like most resorts in Palm Springs, and Palm Springs in general, it feels like it's in the middle of nowhere. It's a featureless turnoff off of a featureless road off a featureless freeway.

The resort felt the same way. It felt slightly above average, but there was nothing unique or interesting that really stood out. I felt like I was walking around a retirement home -- not because the guests were necessarily old, but simply because the buildings and design of the place seemed so colorless and bland.

The rooms were an odd mix of newly remodeled things (nice bathroom counters and sinks) and stuff that looked left over from the 70's (long neglected patio furniture that you might find at a garage sale). They were not bad, but again lacked any sort of unique character or positive features that you might remember. The bed, however, was exceedingly comfortable.

Service was not really what you would expect from a nice resort. The lady who checked us in sounded like she was just reading from a script -- a minor detail, but added to the lack of uniqueness about the place. No one held the door open for us or offered to carry our bags when we approached the lobby, much less carry our belongings to our room.

Apparently there is a very nice golf course here. If you like to golf, then it may be worth checking out. But even so, you might be better off staying somewhere else, and only visiting for the golf.

If I returned to Palm Springs, I would look for a place with more character.

Westin Mission Hills Resort & Spa Overview

Location
Guests will enjoy sunny skies 350 days a year in luxurious Palm Springs, where locals and tourists tee off at renowned golf courses. With its galleries, tiny eateries and upscale shops, it is little wonder that Palm Springs is a second home to scores of Hollywood celebrities. Palm Springs Air Museum and Palm Springs Airport are both in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
Facilities
Truly a captivating destination, this resort near Palm Springs, like the desert it sits amidst, goes through subtle changes of hue and texture, becoming more beautiful with the passage of time. The 316-room resort welcomes guests in a lobby with 24-hour reception and check-out services, as well as currency exchange facilities. Other on-site amenities include a hairdressing salon, a games room, cafe, bar and restaurant. Guests can also take advantage of Internet access, a laundry service and the hotel car park.
Rooms
Each personal villa offers all the amenities needed to rejuvenate after the day's activities. Some villas feature a hot tub bath in the master suite and a screened terrace. All of the villas offer plenty of space to allow the guests to fully unwind. The accommodation features a shower and hairdryer, as well as a direct dial telephone, satellite TV, a radio and hi-fi, and Internet access. Further in-room amenities include a safe, kitchenette with fridge, tea and coffee making facilities, a washing machine and an ironing set. Individually regulated air conditioning and heating come as standard in all villas and either a balcony or terrace can also be enjoyed by each guest.
Sports/Entertainment
Opportunities for adventure abound. Two 18-hole signature championship golf courses beckon and challenge guests to tee off. The desert offers bike riding, horseback riding and the subtle shadings of the Joshua Tree National Park. The resort also features a children's swimming area, a gym, hot tub, a sauna and a steam room. As well as activities such as aqua fit and aerobics, guests can also play tennis, basketball and volleyball, while a range of spa treatments offer the perfect opportunity to relax.
Meals
Woven among the hotel's Spanish-Moorish architecture and natural desert landscaping are dining venues ranging from the full-service restaurant Bella Vista to the poolside grills at the La Paloma or Las Hadas pools.
Payment
American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and VISA are all accepted as methods of payment.
Misc.
No pets are allowed. Daily housekeeping is available for an additional fee. Rollaway beds and cribs are available. The resort is 100 % non-smoking.
