24 Hour Staycation at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa

24 Hour Staycation at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa

Palm Springs Staycation Ideas

After you’ve traveled as much as I have, hotels can seem repetitive. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all! After a stay with my family at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa in Palm Springs, however, I can easily report that is just not the case!

Between their incredible customer service, super fun kids’ club, and seven (yes, SEVEN) pools, I know your family will love this hotel as much as we did. Palm Springs Staycation Ideas

Right off the bat, the front desk and valet staff were helpful and polite. Have you ever walked into a place and dealt with attitude or incompetence immediately? There was absolutely no sign of that here! They were able to get us into our room, despite the fact that we arrived early. (Bonus points to the employee that quickly flagged us down after check-in to return my mom’s laptop, which she had accidentally left at the counter.)

The rooms are spacious, beautiful, and modern, with everything you need (including Starbucks coffee). They each have a private patio or balcony, too, adding to the oasis feel.

Palm Springs Staycation IdeasThis hotel is very kid-friendly. My daughter honestly loved Club Hyatt and had fun slipping down the DesertPipe, a 60- foot spiral water slide over and over! (There’s also a toddler wading pool for little ones.)

All the while, my mom and I were able to relax and surf the net (for free) over at the peaceful adults-only pool. There were plenty of umbrellas, lounge chairs, and oversized towels, too.

We were impressed with the pool attendants that constantly walked the property, picking up dirty towels and checking on the guests. Another way this property differentiates itself from the crowd: they offer pool essentials for purchase! Did you forget the sunscreen? Need a pool toy to entertain your kid? No problem!

Later, I asked for a wine bottle opener when ordering room service for dinner. When the attendant arrived, she offered to open the bottle for us, even though it was a bottle we had brought on our own. It’s this repeated attention to detail that really set the Hyatt Regency apart.

Before calling it a night, we returned to the pool for s’mores and a family-friendly movie (Where the Wild Things Are). Reese had so much fun, and as most parents can attest, when a business does right by your kids, you take note!

The selection of food was phenomenal, and again, so was the service. They were prompt and attentive, and the dining room was kept clean. (They’ve got four different restaurants with dishes to please every palette!)

We had such a great time that we asked if the front desk could hold our bags at checkout while we spent a few more hours at the pool. Reese just couldn’t part with that water slide! Palm Springs Staycation Ideas

Whether you’re a spa aficionado or a golf enthusiast, Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa really is the perfect place for a staycation. Palm Springs Staycation Ideas

    The Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort sounds like a grand place to have a staycation. My purpose for staycations is to enjoy my family so the children’s club and kid’s pool delight me. I hate half butt service so to me their customer service means alot.

    I’m a sucker for a water slide. Ok, I realize I’m a big kid but yeah, I’d be all over that. 🙂 We have a Hyatt in downtown Indianapolis but it is nothing this fancy! I might need to add Palm Springs to my Travel Bucket List.

    I love the Hyatt brand. They offer such great luxury and total customer satisfaction. I have to check out this location. Thanks for sharing!

    Hyatt is a global icon in hotel industry and I think it really stands upto the standards. A hotel with seven pools is like a must try. Although I am more of a budget traveler, but for once I would like to give this one a try!!

    This looks like a great place to do a staycation. I will definitely put this on my bookmark as my future references to my next travel visit. Great ideas!

    I’ve been dying to visit Hyatt Regency resort. My friends have visited a few locations and it’s always good reviews. Now i am reading your post and i just want to visit. Thanks for sharing.

    That place looks so interesting. I will definitely check this out. It’s perfect for stay cation.

  8. September 22, 2017 / 12:29 pm

    This looks fantastic, we could make a day just trying out the pools alone. Me and my girlfriends are always looking for places to stay when we take our yearly Momcation, and even though you said this is a family friendly hotel I know we would have such a great time on the waterslides as well. And for them to hold your bags at the front desk at check out is by far the best thing to me our last hotel would not do that for us.

    The whole place looks stunning, from the opening photo (aerial view?) to the photos of rooms, amenities, and food! My only basis of comparison is from hubby’s and my only big trip in 14 years together – to Punta Cana for my daughter’s destination wedding! We went to the Excellence Resort – which I hope is still standing, after this last hurricane! 🙁 It was also beautiful with loads of amenities and something like 10 different restaurants. All of that, and beachside bars and service – waiters would walk around the beach, take orders, and serve guests! It was amazing!

    What a beautiful resort, and thoughtful review!!! I am in desperate need of a staycation. I will follow all your adventures (and live vicariously through you! 😉)

  11. September 22, 2017 / 3:45 pm

    It’s always so great to be surprised when staying at so many hotels. The attention to detail had to add to the experience as well.

    I can’t get over the 7 pools! I’ve never been to a hotel that has more than 2 haha! Sounds like you had a great time, thanks for sharing!

  15. September 23, 2017 / 6:50 am

    Staycations are great. It’s agreat way to experience a local hotel and or just “visit” things you don’t do on your normal routine in your own town.

  16. September 23, 2017 / 9:13 am

    Wow, now I am curious about the 7 pools!

    I can completely understand when you said that it seems that staying in a hotel seems repetitive – except for the quality of service and attention to details that stand out. I am looking forward to staying in Hyatt soon!

    I would love to be at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort for some rest, relaxation and rejuvenation. I could soak away all my stress in any of those pools!

    I have walked in to a bad attitude, though it’s rare (thank goodness). You’re right it can break an experience from the get go. Glad that wasn’t even an issue for you there. 🙂

  24. September 25, 2017 / 5:09 am

    I always have a nice time at Hyatt Regencys, but this one looks out of this world. Looks like a beautiful place to stay!

    Palm Springs is so on my list of future vacay spots. I’ve been to the usuals of Cali (LA, etc.) but have never visited the desert. This hotel looks really nice and sounds like a great place to stay!

    This kind of places are the ones that deserve our money. When you see happy to help employees, it means the company is treating them well and that’s super important to me.

  34. September 28, 2017 / 4:38 am

    Wow this looks amazing. I would go to this room and go straight to sleep!
