We stayed for 10 days at this great resort. They have several heated pools, a good resturant and activities for everyone. The grounds are immaculate and the staff are always smiling and friendly. There is shuttle service on the property. The golf course looks beautiful (we do not play). Will probably come back again.

This Westin is part of the Starwood package of villa's which offer the ability to expand your room. Even the single bedroom has plenty of size and a very good mattress on the pull-out couch bed. The pool has an excellent water slide for kids and all sorts of activities as well. The restaurants are good and somewhat reasonably priced....

My title kind of says it really.. its a nice modern property, with rooms that are a good size, reasonably well equipped (the kitchen is nowhere near as good as those in the nearby Marriott resort) , nice beds (though nowhere near as life changing as the marketing seeks to suggest..they have one in the reception lobby for goodness sakes),...

I think this place is a great spot to relax & unwind from your busy life. We came to the desert to golf and unwind from our busy life... the Westin was the perfect spot for us! We stayed in a 1 bedroom villa with a "heavenly" king-size bed, full kitchen, living room w/ fireplace, washer/dryer, spa tub, rain shower,...

I visited the Westin Desert Willows on an invitation from SPG to attend one of their timeshare presentations. The resort is located on a quiet street in Palm Desert, a short drive to restaurants, shopping and other amenities. The property itself is what you would expect from a Westin resort: relatively spacious and well appointed rooms (including washer and dryer...

This was our first trip to Palm Desert. Being from MN, we really enjoyed the warm, sunny weather in November. We were in Building 1, which was very convenient to the main pool which had a nice water slide, pools, and bar. Joe, the bartender, was great; he was friendly and worked hard to make sure that all guests were...

We spent a quick weekend getaway to celebrate 20 years together and found this lovely place on TripAdvisor. The resort is easy to find and the grounds are quite nice. The property is still being developed but the areas that are completed are very nice and not bothered by any of the new construction of other rooms/condos. We arrived and...

I stayed here for eight nights with my family over Christmas. Overall, this is a nice resort but there are areas that could use improvement. The resort is made up of several buildings housing "villas" which are essentially condos. These are nice and a "premium" one bedroom villa accommodates a family of four well with the use of the pullout...
