Enjoyed four nights at the Riviera. Room, common areas, and grounds could use more attention to detail regarding maintenance. Housekeeping did a good job caring for our room. Our King room had a good layout and nice size. Bed & bedding was great. Pool is very nice and good music by the pool area. Restaurant service and food were excellent,... More

Love this hotel! Have stayed there for the last three years, every May. From the lobby with the sparkling pool tables to the swimming pool with the sparkling water you get the feel of Las Vegas. The hallways with the turf walls and white benches remind you of Alice and Wonderland...the place puts you in a good mood and takes... More

I stopped by the Riviera, after the drive from Las Vegas, on recommendation by friends due to the history with Frank Sinatra. The bar service was literally atrocious. My family and I were constantly ignored by the staff, where all the tables around us were seen to. After mentioning my concerns to the waitress, she just walked off. Needless to... More

This hotel is designed to be a great resort with tasteful common areas, beautiful bars, and awesome pool areas. The rooms are nice but a little dated. We had high hopes for this resort, but the service was appalling and extremely unorganized. The check-in process was easy and valet was good. Everything else from the bar staff at both the... More

While we're pleased to have welcomed you, Aaron, we're certainly dismayed to hear of these inconsistencies in our services. The weekends can certainly be a busy time for our resort, but this shouldn't impact the hospitality for which we're more commonly acclaimed, and we'll be sure to explore your concerns. We take our guest feedback seriously and will use this... More

I have stayed at the Riviera a few time but never reviewed it in the past. The hotel is very well maintained, plenty of free self-parking. The rooms are comfortable, nice cool AC, big TV's and comfortable beds. The grounds of the hotel are very well maintained and clean. The only issue I had was with the pools, they get... More

Instead we get a piano bar to the right of the entrance that has all the allure of a tired geriatric set. These places that try to be more cost effective and in doing so jettison their reason for being. I have no idea how it is to stay here but I certainly won't be stopping by for a drink... More

Well, another great stay at the Riviera. We've stayed here before but I think this was the best stay yet. From the minute we checked in to the moment we left, the staff was helpful, cheerful, and accommodating to our every need. This time we stayed in Bldg. 1 on the 2nd floor with a great balcony. The room was... More

Let me start by saying, I have never written a poor review. I am pretty easy to please and realize that it is hard to be perfect! Broken elevators--poor service-dirty furniture and unresponsive management forced me to write this. There are many better choices in the Palm Springs area for the same price, or marginally more. I hope you find... More

Great vibe, age appropriate for couples. Service was great. So was the food. I would recommend this hotel for couples, solo, friends but probably not family. The pool area is clean and fun. The rooms are hip and have a lot of room.
