Location & Directions

Palm Springs, California

Ritz Carlton Rancho Mirage overlooks the picturesque Coachella Valley, and world-famous Palm Springs.

When to go

Palm Springs weather is best in the winter. Summers can be extraordinarily hot, temperatures may easily climb above 100ºF/38ºC from mid-April through mid-October. As a green oasis, its easy to forget that La Quinta is a desert resort. High season for the resort is during our winter months from November to March when weather is cooler. During the summer months it is hot in the desert but staying at La Quinta becomes incredibly good value and there are plenty of pools to cool down in after a day exploring. Guests visiting Palm Springs on a road-trip from Las Vegas to Los Angeles welcome a stop at beautiful La Quinta, and it makes the perfect base for exploring Joshua Tree National Park and for geological jeep-tours of the San Andreas Fault.
