La Quinta, CA – La Quinta Resort & Club (HDR)


We took the weekend off and took a drive to Palm Springs, CA. If you head to Palm Springs in July…its considered off season. Why?…its way too hot! About 108-110 degrees each day! Whew! But the good thing is that you can relax by the pool and its very cheap!!! We paid only $100/nite at the La Quinta Resort and Club. La Quinta is southeast of Palm Springs….about 15 miles..near Indian Wells….where the Professional Tennis tournament is located in March.

Its a great resort, dating from 1926…I can imagine that years ago it was amazing! Cozy and quaint casitas are your rooms. 70 pools spread all over the property….basically a pool will be outside your hotel room door…no matter where you stay! The shot above is the entrance to to the hotel at blue hour. Such a lovely view! Thanks La Quninta…we enjoyed our weekend getaway!! =)
