Meetings

For a Very Successful Business Meeting

The Ingleside Inn’s specialty can be said to feature the successful conducting of executive groups which have made the Ingleside Inn their habitual meeting place when in Palm Springs. The Inn has played host to such top level management groups as Pitney Bowes, Hormel, CBS, Warner Records, the Richard King Mellon Foundation Trustees, Sony, McCartney Multimedia and Colgate-Palmolive, just to name a few. These groups have chosen the Inn for their high level conferences, business retreats and meetings for the unobtrusive efficiency of the staff, and the comfortable furnishings in the charming rooms.

Pool and room service is available daily from 8:00am to 11:00pm., but early morning and late evening schedules may always be arranged. Meeting Rooms seat up to 80 people. Arrangements may be made for equipment, such as blackboards, flip boards, and overhead projectors. Wi-Fi Internet is available for meetings.

Instead of being “lost in the shuffle” of a large hotel where other and larger groups predominate, the Inn offers complete personal service from the group’s arrival to the day of departure. All guests are pre-registered, keys and information packages are in all the rooms; the Concierge is equipped with each member’s name and room number. In the shortest time, and without any inconvenience whatsoever, the guests are comfortably ensconced in their rooms. An attentive staffer is ready to bring them cool drinks, unpack for them, and if desired, will give agenda details for meetings and answer all questions. The atmosphere is most conducive to maximum concentration, camaraderie, and accomplishment.

The entire staff is at the service of the group’s sponsor from then on to schedule meeting times, early breakfasts if needed, meeting room set-up, phone message handling, secretarial service, golf and/or tennis, as well as other recreational possibilities. Menu selections from our world-famous Melvyn’s Restaurant which is located on the property, are discussed and finalized.

The pool area is especially popular for al fresco dining where the same menu prevails as is served in the restaurant. The large pool and Jacuzzi are excellent for relaxing taut nerves after the day’s business, as is a masseuse, available at all times.

Meeting room space and all necessary equipment is available. To sum up, everything possible is done to assure the satisfaction of the group, by a staff whose only answer to a request is — Yes! We are proud to tell you that many of our groups have stated their meeting at the Inn was the finest and most productive they ever had.
