This was our third stay at the Desert Riviera Hotel (and in Palm Springs), and once again we had the most fabulous, relaxing stay. It really feels like "coming home" when we stay here. it was great to see Judy again and to meet the other new staff we'd never met and the new owners. Great service, fantastic setting, just... More

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....

This boutique and family-run hotel is amazing. The service is welcoming and warm. A beverage upon check in, and lots of complimentary coffee, snacks, and water. The room was beautiful and comfortable. It really feels like an oasis. The pool area is great and relaxing. I loved my short stay here and wished it was longer. I also couldn't believe... More

We loved our time at this adorable motel/hotel. The staff are so very friendly, amazing in fact, and treat you like family. We loved the pool, and even though we did not use the barbecue area it is set up nicely. There are lots of tables for sitting outside and the grounds are beautiful.

First visit to this Palm Springs gem, we loved it so much we rarely left. All the staff are amazing, there when you need them but never intrusive. The owners Rick and Martha kept us in early morning pastries that were so delicious and came around offering drinks poolside in the early evening. The pool area made us feel like... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Desert Riviera & had a lovely peaceful & relaxing time! On arrival after a rather stressful journey from LA we received a very warm welcome from Judy, who after offering us a choice of complimentary drinks, informed us we had been upgraded to the VIP suite, which had recently been renovated, what a treat...
