Festival Site Updates
May 26, 2023
Embassy Suites can still take reservations for housing, but they are now sold out for Oct. 5, 6 and 7. Those days are no longer available. There is an event in town, and the Embassy Suites has filled up for those three days.
We are excited to see the desire to stay “on location,” and have filled 150% of our room block! Please let us know if you need help finding additional housing.
The Southwest Feast site for 2023 will be located in Palm Desert, California.
This year we will be meeting at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Palm Desert. The hotel has given us a great rate, which includes daily breakfast and nightly manager specials. Parking for guests and attendees is also included.
The Embassy Suites offers spacious guest rooms, outdoor pools and spa, tennis courts and courtyard oasis. There are numerous golf courses surrounding the hotel.
Services will be held on-site in the Embassy Suites Ballroom. Those staying at the hotel will not only enjoy a great two-room suite, but also walk to services daily. Restaurants and stores are also within walking distance.
Palm Desert offers many options in entertainment: museums, Living Desert Zoo and Gardens, botanical gardens, hot-air balloon rides, horseback riding, desert jeep tours, hiking and plenty of options for golf.
For those who love the outdoors, Idyllwild is over 5,400 feet in elevation and is only 45 minutes away, offering restaurants, mountain biking and hiking. Joshua Tree National Park is also 45 minutes away.
Palm Desert has an array of dining options, with a number of fine dining steakhouses less than a mile away, breweries, and restaurants serving Italian, Mediterranean, Greek, Asian and Mexican cuisine.
The Embassy Suites, with its mountain views and golf courses, makes Palm Desert an attractive desert oasis Feast site. Those staying together on-site or nearby will enjoy celebrating the Feast of Tabernacles as family in California this year.
