Just returned from our honeymoon which included 4 fantastic days at the Desert Riviera Hotel. Having read many of glowing reviews on Trip Advisor we were induced to book this hotel for our honeymoon, but wondered if they really were true. Much to our delight, our already high expectations were fully met and then some. The enthusiastic greeting from Larry complete with glass of wine was just as advertised. Things were definitely looking up when we got to our room and found a magnum of champagne on ice waiting for us. We've stayed in many hotels for business and pleasure all over the world (my bride and I are both in our 50s, so we are not inexperienced travelers by any means) and we've never felt so comfortable and looked after as at this very exceptional hotel. Larry (his sister Patty was away on vacation) was always there with a great restaurant recommendations, and a greeting by name as you come and go. When we headed out to the desert for the afternoon at Joshua Tree National Park he immediately provided us hats and frozen water bottles for the day trip. The free wireless, accessible poolside or in the room, for internet addicts like my wife and me was also a very welcome feature.
