Just a handful of rooms around a perfectly maintained pool area. The staff is super helpful, everything from rides to advice, beer and wine. Theres a communal kitchen and an outside BBQ along with kitchen in your room. You can stock up on water, bananas apples and oranges for a hike. The other guests tend to be friendly so the... More

It isn't always the case that our guests are as busy as you two.. however I thank you for teaching us about the beautiful hikes and nature that you ventured out to... so that we can share that with others.

We booked our stay at the Desert Riviera based largely on the outstanding reviews on Tripadvisor. The hotel surpassed those reviews at every turn. The room was large, comfortable and immaculate. The pool and grounds were fantastic, the location was ideal. But what really made our stay memorable was the staff. Judy, Steve, Rick and everyone made our stay incredibly... More

We were the lucky ones to have you both chill, unwind.... enjoy the Tennis.. and celebrate a pink cupcake birthday for Leighann... which turned into an impromptu Poolside Party where we had many celebrations to honor. You have to just be here in March, to understand what a unbelievable warm, sunny haven that Palm Springs is to enjoy... We thank... More

WOW - Wife & I just returned from another wonderful, relaxing stay at Desert Riviera and I'm happy to report that it's better than ever! I must admit I was a little apprehensive heading into this trip as the business changed ownership late last year. Prior owners Larry and Patty were like family to guests and were often onsite overseeing... More

Arriving for our yearly spring trip to Palm Springs, we were of course given a family style welcome. The staff have been busy since Christmas making many changes to the physical aspects of the hotel, all of which gained our hearty approval! From the new communal kitchen and laundry facility, the new reception area, and the improved BBQ space to... More

This was our third stay at the Desert Riviera Hotel (and in Palm Springs), and once again we had the most fabulous, relaxing stay.

Spent the weekend here with my wife while attending the coachella festival. Kudos to Judy, Tracy and their family (and the staff too!) for having the vision to restore and create this wonderful property. This property is what a vacation or weekend at Palm Springs is supposed to be. Service went above and beyond. For us, it was literally like... More

This was our first visit to Palm Springs and we did not know where to stay. As usual we read the reviews on tripadvisor. The Desert Riviera was very highly rated and we were not disappointed. We stayed here at the end of March. It is a great location and the owners are very friendly and accomodating. On checkin Judy... More

After driving from LA in horrific traffic, we two Australian boomers were blown away with the opening line from Judy: "would you like to sit down and have a glass of wine or a cold beer?" Naturally we said yes! The decor was both beautifully coloured and perfectly fitted the modernist era. We only had one night in Palm Springs... More

What a wonderful place to stay! Staff friendly and so accommodating! The hotel is very stylish! The pool and garden are stunning. We enjoyed cooking on the grill poolside and every condiment imaginable is available in the kitchen. Fresh potted herbs are a nice touch! We already booked for next year....
