Like most hotels in the Palm Springs
area, Holiday Inn Express Cathedral City benefits from fine views of the Santa Rosa Mountains to the south, and backs on to the Whitewater River so has a relatively quiet location, in a residential district just off Date Palm Avenue, by the junction with Gerald Ford Road. There are many golf courses and country clubs nearby, the closest being Date Palm, Cathedral Canyon and Mission Hills. Palm Springs Airport is 5 miles northeast, and the hotel is within easy reach of Indian Wells, Rancho Mirage & Palm Desert as well as Cathedral City. The hotel offers 94 rooms & suites, an outdoor pool, newsstand, sundeck, spa, fitness center and various business services.
