La Quinta

Located 130 miles east of Los Angeles, La Quinta Resort & Club is a classic destination for travelers seeking some R&R in the California desert. Winter and early spring are a perfect time to visit.

Stunning mountains provide memorable backdrop

Built in 1926, the hotel features lovely Spanish architecture and original design details. The entire property is immaculate, with world-class tennis and golf facilities, and lots of swimming pools (41!). 

An original Gladding, McBean tile fountain graces the La Quinta Spa’s courtyard near the Tennis Club. This fountain greeted guests for many years at the hotel's main entrance. Oscar-winning filmmaker Frank Capra made La Quinta his desert hideaway, as did many other A-list Hollywood stars of the Golden Age.

Nearby Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage are home to prime examples of mid-century modern residential and commercial architecture. It's always inspiring to see well-preserved architecture while traveling. 

So much to see and do at La Quinta. Looking forward to a return visit!
