My husband and I visit Palm Springs a few times a year and have stayed at a variety of hotels throughout the Coachella valley. First we tried the ultra-luxury resorts, next up were the mega-hotels and then lastly we decided the 5 to 10 room courtyard style hotels were for us. So far we've stayed at Ballantine's (no no no), Del Marcos (nice but plumbing is a bit outdated and beds aren't comfortable) and now Desert Riviera.
If I were to buy a mid-century hotel property in the desert and rehab it this would be my model. They have tastefully preserved the character and flavor of this hotel while updating the plumbing, kitchenettes and pool area. The owners are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to make their guests feel comfortable which in turn seems to make the guests more friendly to each other, a nice byproduct of the upbeat atmosphere. They do a lot of little things at this hotel to make you feel special from free snacks in your room to a couple of bicycles available to guests.
I would highly recommend staying here.
