La Quinta, California

La Quinta Resort & Club – (855) 899-3031

Set against the breathtaking backdrop of the rugged Santa Rosa Mountains, the legendary La Quinta Resort & Club is the longest-running resort in the Palm Springs desert area and one of only two resorts in the country for which a city has been named. Spanning 45 vibrant acres, its verdant grounds are accentuated by beds of colorful flowers; fragrant orange, lemon, tangerine, tangelo and grapefruit trees; cypress trees and cacti; sparkling pools and waterfalls; and picturesque courtyards, all framed by towering palms.

A member of Hilton Worldwide’s Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, the historic property offers a variety of distinctive accommodations including 620 guestrooms, 98 villas, 535 fireplaces, 41 swimming pools and 53 hot spas. La Quinta Resort & Club also boasts championship-caliber golf and tennis facilities, award-winning dining, expansive spa and fitness facilities, a variety of boutiques and shops and some of the region’s top indoor and outdoor meeting spaces.

Real estate options including unique properties at PGA WEST, Citrus Club and homes adjacent to La Quinta Resort & Club are available for purchase or rent.

• History:
A quintessential example of California architecture, the property was originally developed by prominent businessman Walter H. Morgan who purchased 1,400 acres from the Cahuilla Indian tribe and commissioned Pasadena-based architect Gordon Kaufman to mastermind an inviting hacienda-style hotel. Over the years, the property has grown from 20 cozy casitas to 620 guestrooms and 98 one-, two- and three-bedroom villas, yet it still retains the intimate, inviting atmosphere which has remained its hallmark. Every expansion has been carefully orchestrated to reflect the detail and integrity of Kaufman’s original award-winning architecture. In fact, La Quinta Resort & Club is fresh off a multi-million dollar milestone restoration befitting a landmark property, that earned it top honors at the annual Hilton Worldwide and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts’ awards ceremony in Chicago.

Because of its secluded nature, La Quinta Resort & Club has long been an escape for Hollywood’s elite – as well as artists, moguls and international dignitaries – for relaxation and play. Over the years La Quinta has hosted a bevy of film legends including Marlene Dietrich, Bette Davis, Clark Gable, Errol Flynn, Katherine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Shirley Temple.
