Within easy driving distance from both Los Angeles (100 miles) and San Diego (150 miles), La Quinta quickly became a secluded hideaway for Hollywood’s celebrities and socialites.

Today, with a private airport 5 miles away and a commercial airport 25 miles away in Palm Springs, La Quinta still attracts those seeking luxe living in the heart of this classic desert oasis.
