This stark-white resort adjacent to the Golf Resort at Indian Wells is one of the grandest in the desert. Standard rooms, large even by local standards, come with furnished patios or balconies and separate living and sleeping areas. The seven pools on the property, one with a waterslide, make this a fun option for families. (One pool is adult-only.) A game room and a kids club allow children a chance to play while mom and dad enjoy the spa or fitness center. Despite its resorty trappings, the Hyatt actually caters to business travelers, who take advantage of the opportunity to play golf, jog trails, or cruise on bike paths.
