About La Quinta Palm Springs Resort

Few places on earth capture your spirit like La Quinta Resort & Club. An original desert hideaway at the foot of the spectacular Santa Rosa Mountains, La Quinta Resort & Club has been the personal refuge for Hollywood luminaries and world travelers [and their pets] since 1926. While you could easily spend a week lounging in the sun beside one of 41 pools that sit just steps from your guestroom door, the lush 45-acre resort offers so much more. This golf resorts in Palm Springs invites you to challenge golf’s legends on five championship courses, indulge in a rejuvenating afternoon at Spa La Quinta, savor creations of top chefs in one of seven restaurants, shop, play tennis, or simply indulge the luxury of doing nothing at all.

A La Quinta Palm Springs History

In the early 1920s, San Francisco businessman Walter H. Morgan was drawn to a place in the California desert that dwellers in these lands had long referred to as the Land of Eternal Sun. He envisioned a tranquil retreat that captured the essence of quiet hacienda-style living. Purchasing 1,400 acres from the native Cahuilla Indians, he enlisted the renowned architect Gordon Kaufman, along with scores of artisan craftsmen to make his dream a reality. From more than 100,000 hand-formed adobe bricks and 60,000 locally fired roof tiles, a small grouping of quaint casitas and a cozy dining room sprung up. Morgan called this place La Quinta.

Word quickly spread among Hollywood’s elite that Morgan’s oasis in the desert was a truly relaxing escape, far from the harsh glare of the limelight and away from prying eyes. The brightest stars came, each seeking the solitude of La Quinta for their own reasons. Garbo wanted to be alone. Gable came to rollick with friends. Frank Capra found creative inspiration and returned to his “Shangri-La of Screenwriting” again and again, eventually making it his home.

With time, the legend of La Quinta grew. Now a relaxed playground for championship golf, world-class tennis, fine dining and blissful spa experiences, La Quinta remains the original desert hideaway and the quintessential Palm Desert resort.
