Awesome is one word to describe our stay!! My sister-in-law has been here three times and wanted us to join them this time. This is the most relaxing two days we have ever had. The entire staff is so accommodating and friendly, you know like being pampered without being smotherede. We will definitely be back as we have already booked... More

Like many, we stopped at Palm Springs as part of a road trip around CA. The Desert Riviera Hotel is the perfect place for relaxation. With just 11 rooms all facing the pool (there is no bad room), this is somewhere to come and get away from it all. What makes it are the staff. We stayed 4 nights and... More

My mom and I returned for the third year in a row. Each and every visit has been nothing short of amazing! We are always greeted like we are family. Tracy picked us up from the airport and quickly filled us in on all the new changes the resort has made in a year. She is very friendly and well... More

What an amazing 4 day stay! My spouse and I came to experience the desert and the mid century modern elegance of this lovely city. The Desert Riviera Hotel was the perfect home base. The front staff, Misty, Semih and Tracy offered lots of excellent advice about where to go and what to do. The owners Martha and Rick hosted... More

I was a little dubious about the the TripAdvisor rating before we stayed at the Desert Riviera but I can now see why it has such an amazing rating. Our stay, from start to finish, was outstanding. The location, hotel, room, the pool & gardens, breakfast were excellent and the staff amazing. We were looked after like royalty!! We wouldn't... More

Professional, caring & kind staff and owners. The place is spotless & rooms with quality furniture. The common kitchen & bbq are a big plus. For a great place to relax, this is it. Nice and quiet, noisy parties aren't tolerated.

What you read about this place and it's great rating and reviews are all true. They have managed to keep the retro look of the property and make it a modern garden oasis retreat with its amazing pool and wonderful view of the mountains. You are pampered from the moment you walk in: you are greeted with a drink and... More

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful oasis in August 2016. Upon arrival I had a hard time finding the entrance. Once we made our way through the orange gate we were welcome by a young woman who I believed to be the manager, Misty. She was so welcoming and made my wife and I feel like long lost... More

Booked a room for a weekend trip to PS. The hotel sent an email after I booked to check to see if we were celebrating anything special that weekend. Nice touch. Check in was fairly quick. I was offered a beverage. Tip to the hotel: Offer local beer. There are several good breweries in the area. Budweiser doesn't cut it.... More
