Two new meeting spaces at the 884-room JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort and Spa in Palm Desert, Calif., have added more than 30,000 square feet of event space. The 13,000-square-foot Pavilion features a glass wall providing views of the San Jacinto Mountains and Palm Desert, while the attached 4,000-square-foot outdoor patio affords guests a breath of fresh air. Adjacent to the Pavilion is another outdoor venue, the 12,000-square-foot Grove, which features a waterfall. The $5 million project was part of a larger $30 million renovation taking place at the property. The JW Marriott now offers a total of 240,000 square feet of function space.
