California's JW Marriott Desert Springs Reveals Major Renovation

The Greater Palm Springs-area luxury hotel debuted a redesigned ballroom, a refreshed spa and a new Entertainment Zone.

The JW Marriott Desert Springs, a luxury resort set on 450 acres in California's Greater Palm Springs area, recently unveiled a multimillion-dollar renovation that touched nearly every facet of the property.

All 884 guest rooms, including 101 suites, have been redesigned, and now feature hardwood floors, new furnishings, plush bedding and mountain-inspired murals. More than 300 of the rooms now have free-standing soaking tubs in their bathrooms.

Among the redesigned event space is the new Sinatra Ballroom, a 25,000-square-foot venue that hosted the last public performance of Frank Sinatra in 1995. The new design of the property's largest ballroom honors the legend with mid-century elements of the chic era that marked Sinatra's heyday.

The resort also recently debuted the JW Entertainment Zone, a 12,000-square-foot space and the largest arcade in the state of California, according to the property. High-tech simulators, motocross racing games and four lanes of duckpin bowling are available alongside classics such as Pac-Man, air hockey and skee ball. The whole space is available for group bookings.

The 38,000-square foot spa and porte cochere were also refreshed. Among the resort's many outdoor amenities are two championship golf courses and multiple swimming pools.
