February 2012 marked JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa’s silver anniversary. The award-winning Palm Desert resort celebrated by announcing a host of updates and renovations that enhance the property’s overall guest experience. These $25 million improvements include extensive renovations to the resort’s Ted Robinson-designed Palm golf course, a refresh of their 884 guestrooms and suites, the addition of Fisherman’s Landing as their latest dining option, and a new retail outlet, Sunnylands Chocolate Factory. Here are the details:
 
Golf Course Renovations
Upgrades to the resort’s acclaimed Palm Course will include new tees, bunkers and USGA-specifications greens on each of the 18 holes. Ted Robinson, Jr. is working to bring back much of his father’s original design while creating some unique new features that will bring a fresh and distinctive look to the course’s already picturesque layout. This $1.5 million project began in May and the course re-opened at the end of October 2011.
 
Room Rejuvenation
The resort’s 884 guestrooms and suites have been updated to include all-new beds and bedding, artwork, carpet, drapes, paint and headboards. The guest corridors also received all-new carpet, paint, artwork and wall treatments.
 
Fisherman’s Landing
Adding to three existing Fisherman’s Market locations throughout Southern California, the Fisherman’s Landing will offer a variety of signature, award-winning seafood favorites and will be located near the Golf Pro Shop, Oasis Pool complex and Colonnade of Shops. The restaurant is scheduled to open in April 2012. Visit www.fishermans.com for more information.
 
Sunnylands Chocolate Factory
Opened in September 2011, Sunnylands Chocolate Factory offers a vast selection of gourmet chocolate treats, in addition to two dozen varieties of caramel apples and a menu of specialty items that includes dipped strawberries, marshmallows and pretzels, in addition to s'mores, rice krispy treats and mint oreo bark.
 
“With our 25th Anniversary just around the corner, we are very excited to showcase the newly rejuvenated Desert Springs to our guests,” said Ken Schwartz, General Manager of Desert Springs. “We are continually seeking ways to enhance the overall guest experience, and this revitalization will ensure that Desert Springs continues to exceed the expectations of our valued guests for the next 25 years.”
