The Desert Princess Golf Resort is an upper-middle-range hotel that caters to business travelers and golfers. Slightly outside of Palm Springs, it lacks urban convenience, but the views from the rooms (all with balconies or patios) can't be beat. Most overlook the pool and golf course with gorgeous mountains as a backdrop. The rooms themselves are quite dated, though, and some do overlook the parking lot. (A two-year renovation started in the summer of 2013, however.) There's plenty to do at the resort besides golf -- swim in the Olympic-size pool, work out in the fitness center, get a message in the spa, or try your hand at racquetball, volleyball, or tennis. With tons of meeting space and a full-service business center, this hotel is a good choice for business travelers wanting plenty of options for unwinding in their downtime.
