Read the excellent reviews on TripAdvisor, and believe them! Our experience was the same as many others, great accommodation and great service. This hotel lists as number 1 in Palm Springs and the number of 'excellent' trip advisor ratings demonstrates the consistency of their service.

My wife and I just returned from spending the most relaxing week vacation in our 21 years of being married. From the moment we met Judy at check in to saying good bye to Larry and Patty at the end there was nothing that these three could have done to make our stay more relaxing. Customer service was out of... More

We are packing our bags and headed to the the Desert Riviera for our eighth trip. My husband discovered this jewel in 2008 and we have been staying here ever since. What makes the Desert Riviera so special is Larry, Patty, Judy, and Steve. Chats around the fireplace, socializing with guests, large room with kitchenettes, free movies, hot tub (my... More

My wife and I stayed here on a recent visit to see our son in LA. He wanted us to experience Palm Springs but he stayed in the trendy Ace opposite while we preferred the less frenetic atmosphere of the much smaller Desert Riviera. Both hotels are on a fairly busy main road and you notice some traffic noise when... More

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Desert Riveria and it totally exceeded my expectations as a retro-50's Modern Theme Boutique Hotel. I love when people take the care to restore old properties and I choose hotels like this often! Your stay here begins with a complimentry ride in a limo from the PSP airport. When we arrived,...

We stayed here for one night on the last day of a two week trip around California. We could not have wished for a better place to end the trip at. In fact, within 30 minutes of checking in we wished we had been able to stay longer. From the personal greeting with received from Judy, including a cold drink... More

My husband and I took a three-day getaway to Palm Springs for our wedding anniversary. I am so glad that we cancelled our first pricey hotel reservation to swap for the Desert Riviera. The hotel is private and nicely maintained. It a few miles away from the main drag of PS, but the popular restaurants and bars are easily accesible... More
