We had a great stay at the Riviera. Highlights included: the pool areas - large and smaller pools, lots of lounge chairs; Circa 59 restaurant - both good menu choices and food quality, and attentive staff. Easy check-in and check-out and a nice large room. While in Palm Springs, it is far enough away from the city core that it... More

I know that it's legal to smoke outdoors in Palm Springs, but that does not mean it's a smart business practice. The main pool area positively reeked. It was gross. Otherwise the hotel was fine except it's rather far from anywhere. The new Buzz bus service makes this less of an issue.

My daughter and I booked spa treatments whilst in Palm Springs although not resident at the hotel. We were very impressed by the amazing decor, especially the crystal covered pool table!!! Loved the poolside area and bars and the spa was first class, friendly helpful spa staff and very well equipped. We had drinks and a snack plate lunch afterwards... More

Great hotel, nice large rooms, staff is very friendly and helpful. Restaurants and bars have great food and good fun. The hallways and some parts of the hotel ie, the carpeting needs renewing. Otherwise very nice.

I really enjoyed this hotel. It's trying to be a bit of a throw back to the 50's. And it succeeds mostly. With a modern twist. It has two pools one fir playing and the other one is long enough to swim laps, if you want to. I did. There is also a hot tub. But you will be sharing... More

The Riviera Resort and Spa is an older property located a little more than a mile north of downtown Palm Springs. It is an older property set up as a combination of resort/vacation space and conference space. It appears that the rooms have been mostly remodeled with a sort of "Palm Springs deco" decor. Rooms have upgraded flat screens with... More

Not above the average and service close to poor; I would not come back or recommend to a friend. Card for the door only worked one time we tried and the waiting for help was ridiculously long. Rooms look old and not remarkable at all. The pool is ok, even though pool service started at 10:30 am on a sunday;... More

Stellar stay in a stylish hotel (love the ambience and old Hollywood vibe)....with a beautiful pool. The pool is repotedly the best in Palm Springs- I can see why, ample chairs/cabanas and nice mountain views. Above average poolside food (ie lettuce wraps) and loved the antioxidant mojito (berry). The rooms were well appointed, clean and I just love the decor-... More
