Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage

Looking for an easy and perfect weekend getaway to Palm Springs? Then head to the Ritz-Carlton, Rancho Mirage, a mountaintop gem with magnificent desert views of the Coachella Valley below. Here’s what we loved the most:

Classic Ritz-Carlton luxury combined with California desert chic. The crowd is a nice mix of families and couples.

Guest rooms are spacious and comfortable, designed with sandy neutrals and pops of green and orange to reflect the desert surroundings. Families will love the Terrace Firepit rooms for the outdoor patio space and easy access to the pools and lawn games which include Corn Hole, Bocce, and Ladder Ball. The Club Lounge offers an extra level of luxury with five delicious presentations of food, evening drinks, and an outdoor balcony to enjoy the unparalleled views.

State Fare Kitchen & Bar focuses on seasonal menus with locally sourced ingredients from the Coachella Valley and Pacific Coast. The Edge Steakhouse is an unforgettable dining experience with its remarkable dry-aged prime steak, handcrafted cocktails, and spectacular sunset views. Advance reservations are a must at The Edge.

Start your morning with a desert hike or a round of golf at the exclusive Desert Willow Country Club. Spend a day relaxing at the Main pool or the quiet adults-only Vista pool. Downtown Palm Springs is a quick 15-minute Uber ride where you’ll find world-class shopping, farm-to-table dining, and Palm Springs’ signature mid-century modern home tours.

Don’t miss the fantastic afternoon Candy Bar at the Concierge Desk which both kids and adults will love! Included among the selection are celebrity favorites. Wander around the gorgeous lobby and common spaces and check out the inspired collection of local art and beautiful floral displays.
