Vegas-style gambling, natural mineral waters and a great downtown Palm Springs location make this hotel a sure bet.
Owned by the Agua Caliente band of the Cahuilla Indian tribe, the Spa Resort Casino is the virtual heartbeat of downtown Palm Springs. Originally established in the 1960s, the property has come a long way by offering premier hotel accommodations, entertainment, popular restaurants and a bustling casino. Neither luxe nor downmarket, the rooms are comfortable. The majority of the guests come to play at the casino and to take in quality entertainment at the Cascade Lounge. Even if you don't check in, you may want to drop by to experience the five stages of Taking of the Waters at the namesake spa. This amazing treatment includes visits to a steam room, sauna, aromatherapy inhalation room, thermal mineral baths and a tranquility room. In addition, there is an impressive array of fitness equipment at the state-of-the-art hotel gym. Several restaurants, including a buffet, offer a full complement of dining options. For off-site activities, guided hiking and jeep tours of tribal lands are offered.
