A 25th Anniversary Nip/Tuck
Also getting a new look is the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort which is updating its 884 guestrooms and suites in honor of its approaching 25th anniversary. Rooms will get all-new beds, bedding, artwork, carpet, drapes, paint and headboards. Guest corridors will also get new carpets, paint, artwork and wall treatments, all of which is supposed to be completed by the end of 2011.
Phew! Because that "dullard decor" and "cringy fake paintings" had us kinda grossed out last year.
