Entry:

The arrival sequence to the Gateway Canyons Resort needed better definition and a new location for its guest registration area. DTJ reorganized the arrival drive, including a new Porte cochere and more extensive desert landscape to set the tone for arriving guests. The new registration desk and concierge area reflects the warm and informal character of the resort.
