If anyone cares, the HR PSP is on JS for $85.
YMMV on using a suite upgrade.

You can also check out VRBO.com for home rentals. It might be cheaper since you are planning on staying for an extended time to get the villa the whole time at a one week rental rate.

If you're set on SPG though there are 2 Westin properties in the desert area that I know of off hand - Westin Mission Hills (hotel and villas) or Westin Desert Willow (villas only). I've stayed at the hotel and villa portion of the Mission Hills and thought that the villas were actually more useful. Never been to Desert Willow.

+1.
There are tons of awesome villas near either Chabad (Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage).  Just stay in one for a week and you'll save money.
No need for a hotel IMHO.

I didn't find any SPG hotel near the Chabad shul,  a villa I assume will cost me 200-300 a night and SPG will cost me 7-15k witch is much more worth, that's why during the week I want to stay at hotel and for shaboss in a villa close by to the chabad shul.

Can easily get a villa for less than that

I searched for hours on vrbo.com and other sites too, I can't find anything cheaper than 275 per night, + cleaning fee and heating the pool fee,
Am I missing something ?

basically most villas close to Chabad are in the deppwell area, witch is VERY expensive....

Twin Palms and Sunny Dunes are also walkable.
And everything is very negotiable.
