A desert gem in Greater Palm Springs

340 Rooms / 26 Suites

Perhaps it’s the multicolored lights that shine along the resort tower, or maybe it’s because high-rise buildings are a rarity in Greater Palm Springs, but whatever the reason, Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa stands like a beacon in SoCal.

It doesn’t take long to realize there’s little reason to leave this full-service paradise after arriving. With plenty of entertainment, dining and recreational options at your fingertips, Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa is a one-stop vacation destination.

The Rooms

With standard rooms clocking in at a spacious 550 square feet, you’ll always have plenty of space to call your own. Inspired by the desert’s landscape, the resort’s 314 deluxe rooms are covered with soothing earth tones like sandy-beige headboards and red accent pillows. Perks include a 42-inch plasma TV, high-speed Internet and Wi-Fi, his-and-her robes, plus a well-appointed bathroom with its own TV, dual vanities, an oversized tub and separate shower. Balconies overlook the pool area and make for a perfect viewpoint to watch the sun set behind the San Jacinto Mountains.

If you’re looking to splurge, the resort’s 24 executive suites offer 1,100 square feet of luxury, including an extra flat-screen TV, a multihead shower, a wet bar and a jetted spa tub. Or spring for one of the two presidential suites at the top of the tower and enjoy a separate dining room, living space and unbeatable views.

The Casino

The bright lights and slot machines of Las Vegas are four hours away, but you’ll forget all about Sin City once you set foot on the gaming floor at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa. Players have 71,000 square feet of gaming to explore, not to mention the Coachella Valley’s only private poker room.

Table games like blackjack, roulette, poker, craps and baccarat are well represented, while the sea of slot machines entices with the latest games. High rollers, meet Lady Luck in style inside the exclusive high-limit gaming room.

The Dining

Whether you’re looking for an upscale steakhouse experience, a casual California bistro setting or the quintessential casino buffet dinner, you’ll find it all at the Palm Springs hotel.

If you want a romantic dinner, impress your date with prime steaks and great wine at The Steakhouse. Want a casual lunch with the family in tow? Tuck into California cuisine in a decidedly beachside-inspired bistro at Waters Café.

The Grand Palms Buffet offers something for every taste, thanks to its lineup of American, Mexican, Italian and Asian dishes, but Friday and Saturday nights are extra special with prime rib and shrimp additions. For a fast bite, drop by Poker Deli for burgers and sandwiches.

The Extras

Rivaling the entertainment offerings of any Vegas casino is The Show, Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa’s concert theater. This impressive venue attracts big names like ZZ Top, Jay Leno, Dolly Parton and Cyndi Lauper, and with none of the 2,034 seats more than 125 feet from the stage, there’s not a bad spot in the house.

Of course, it’s not a trip to Greater Palm Springs without a little poolside lounging, and the resort’s 50,000-square-foot pool area doesn’t disappoint. If you really need to unwind, treat yourself to a day of massages, facials and scrubs at Sunstone Spa. 

The Neighborhood

There’s plenty onsite to fill your desert days, but if you’re looking to venture into Greater Palm Springs, Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa’s central location in Rancho Mirage is hard to beat. The luxury hotel is just a 20-minute drive from the buzz of downtown Palm Springs, while the boutiques and restaurants of Palm Desert’s pedestrian-friendly El Paseo district are a 15-minute drive.

And if you want to take a daytrip during your stay, the Rancho Mirage hotel sits right off of the I-10 freeway, offering easy access to nearby destinations like Joshua Tree National Park and Desert Hills Premium Outlets.
