La Quinta Resort & Club's Multi-Million Dollar Restoration Offers New Reasons to Escape to the Desert

La Quinta Resort & Club's Multi-Million Dollar Restoration Offers New Reasons to Escape to the Desert

La Quinta Resort & Club recently underwent a massive multi-million dollar restoration, which we were fortunate enough to check out right after the reveal. As the first luxury resort to open in the Palm Springs area in 1926, La Quinta has a pretty rich past, full of Hollywood glamour. It's pretty well known that Frank Capra wrote Lost Horizon (1937) while lounging by the pool, and that stars like Greta Garbo and Clark Gable often visited. What started out as a series of adobe bungalows now includes 620 casitas and suites, 98 villas, the 23,000-square-foot Spa La Quinta, 41 accent swimming pools, 53 hot spas, 23 tennis courts, PGA West championship golf courses and academy, and Chef Jimmy Schmidt's Morgan's in the Desert (plus a few other restaurants, of course).
