My wife and I found this wonderful oasis centrally located in Palm Springs. We travelled from NY to attend a Salsa Dance weekend at a large hotel but chose The Desert Riviera Hotel for its charm, personal attention and wanted to experience a property that reflected a " mid-century" style and friendly atmosphere.The Stearns Family , Larry, and Judy are such wonderful hosts. We learned that the property was recently rennovated and marveled at the transformation. We took early morning swims in the large heated pool and relaxed in the spa just steps from our room. The gardens and overall ambience is exceptional! The rooms are so well designed and detailed. All possible ammentities are included.Judy and Larry were always available . After a long day of dance classes we returned to DR to enjoy a late afternoon Pizza Party hosted at the Tuscan Grill by Steve .Great storytelling at night around the outdoor firepit. All of this with the mountains as a backdrop clearly visible from all directions at the property.( Don't miss the pink glow of the mountains just before sunrise)We enjoyed a toast of champagne and culinary delights New Year's Eve afternoon on the terrace around the pool.with other guests.. A little early ! but (Mark and Bev were guests from UK) so we celebrated UK time! Easy walk to restaurants for breakfast Elmers and Manhattan Deli . Limo was great! Richard our chauffeur, was eager to share local stories and happenings. The Thursday Night Street Fair is great fun.! Larry and Judy were very helpful with local information and with dinner reservations. Next visit we hope to meet Patty Stearns, the designer of this charming property
