Celebrate Thanksgiving and Christmas in Palm Springs at La Quinta Resort

Home for the Holidays

From Thanksgiving dinner through New Year’s Day, La Quinta Resort is your home away from home for celebrating the most wonderful time of the year. Soak up the holiday spirit as you stroll throughout our historic property, enjoying the festive lights and décor. Delight to the sound of holiday music and carolers on the Plaza, and savor the aroma of chestnuts roasting on an open fire in the Lobby. Holiday movies, visits from Santa, the lighting of the Menorah and convivial holiday dining are just a few of the traditions that will warm your heart. We invite you to celebrate this Holiday Season with us!
