La Quinta Resort In Palm Springs Is Classic!
La Quinta Resort & Club, the original hideaway Palm Springs hotel, has been welcoming guests with its unique style of hacienda-inspired warmth since 1926. Set amid 45 lushly manicured acres at the foot of the soaring Santa Rosa Mountains, La Quinta invites you to challenge golf’s legends on five championship courses, indulge in the rejuvenating embrace of Spa La Quinta, savor creations of top chefs, sourced fresh from local producers, hold court at our world-renowned tennis facility, or simply sit poolside and relax in the same way Hollywood’s elite have done for decades. In the early 1920s San Francisco businessman Walter H. Morgan was drawn to a place in the California desert that dwellers in these lands had long referred to as the Land of Eternal Sun. In his mind’s eye, he envisioned a tranquil retreat that captured the essence of quiet hacienda-style living. Purchasing 1,400 acres from the native Cahuilla Indians, he enlisted the renowned architect Gordon Kaufman, along with scores of artisan craftsmen to make his dream a reality. From more than 100,000 hand-formed adobe bricks and 60,000 locally fired roof tiles, a small grouping of quaint casitas and a cozy dining room sprung up. And Morgan called it La Quinta. Word quickly spread among Hollywood’s elite that Morgan’s oasis in the desert was a truly relaxing escape, far from the harsh glare of the limelight and away from prying eyes. The brightest stars came, each seeking the solitude of La Quinta for their own reasons. Garbo wanted to be alone. Gable came to rollick with friends. Frank Capra found creative inspiration and returned to his “Shangri-La of Screenwriting” again and again, eventually making it his home. As the legends of stage, screen and industry came, the legend of La Quinta grew. While expanding into a relaxed playground for championship golf, world-class tennis, fine dining and blissful spa experiences, La Quinta has always remained a secluded hideaway in the desert and the quintessential California resort.
