Offering regional travelers a relaxing naturally distanced getaway, the historic La Quinta Resort & Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort is excited to safely reintroduce its award-winning spa programming and culinary prowess at the signature restaurant, Morgan’s in the Desert following months of closure.
