This stark-white resort, set 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. There are seven pools on the property, including an adults-only pool and another with a waterslide, making this a fun option for families. 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 on adjacent golf courses, jog trails, or cruise on bike paths.
