The Queen Studio (PRE-RENOVATION) at the Desert Riviera Hotel
Are small pets (1 non- shedding dog) allowed? Does queen studio have a fridge and stove? Thanks
Hi, Ginger. Although we do love our doggies friends, we have a No pet policy and would not be able to accommodate a dog. Our Queen studio does have a kitchenette but no stove in the room. However, we do have a communal kitchen with a stove top and a outdoor BBQ and pizza oven to bake anything that is open to you 24 hours. I hope this helps! Cheers! -Misty
