The Westin's seem to provide better experiences than the Marriot's overall.

Houses in PS are great.
Private pool. Walkable to a great shul. Easy to warm up meals. What's not to love?

I would recommend JW Marriott they have very nice grounds, that also have a boat ride around the resort going out from the lobby, I had a great experience there, it's about 15 minutes to the Chabad of rancho mirage.
