A nice hotel - very conveniently located for downtown (within walking distance). Rooms were very clean and spacious and had a nice view of the pool.

Self parking was available very close to the room.

There are two pools and two hot tubs - which are nicely heated.

I'd stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view

Our experience with the Riviera Resort and Spa was amazing. The property's vibe of an era gone by helped create an atmosphere for our yearly event that had been missing for several years. It helped capture the spirit we were looking for when we planned our event.

The staff is wonderful - helpful, accommodating, gracious, and knowledgeable. Whoever is doing the hiring and training is doing a terrific job.

The food was wonderful. Every catered meal was unique, fresh, and delicious. Hats off to the chef and his staff. Our attendees were very happy with the meals, quality of the food, and service.

Thank you to the Riviera Resort & Spa, staff, and management for a job well done.

Intereresting property very old Hollywood, very fun. Food at Circa 59 was good, pool cocktails were great, boutique was awesome. Didn't get a chance to visit the spa as they were booked which I took as a good sign :)

Room Tip: I was on the ground floor in a basic room, quiet, no issues.

The layout of the hotel is so confusing. This is my second visit and I got lost twice. Maybe if there were little map signs so that people would know where they were going. I don't mean anything that would be distracting to the aesthetics of the resort either. Even though the pool area is beautiful, it seems that you can't cross through it to get somewhere. This is not a put down at all; I just hope improvements will make customers more satisfied and the resort will have more success.

Room Tip: Slamming doors made me jump! Maybe doors need new mechanisms.

Everything as advertised. Well worth the upgrade to a junior suite as the room set up the whole relaxing mood. Music by the pool was awesome and drinks perfectly made. Dinner at Circa and the breakfast we had was average to be honest - the setting was romantic though. Will definitely come back for a longer stay but will venture out to eat next time.

Room Tip: Do the junior suite. It's just worth it to get the space and cool tub

This place was very nice looking. The pool area, was nice with fire pits all over. The bar had live music which I really liked, and the bartender was very nice. The room was average, one because it had a stench that we couldn't find and the bathroom wasn't super well kept. I just think the counters were just old marble. Anyway I would stay here again only if I got a discount, it's was good but I've stayed in better hotels for the price.

Room Tip: Choose a room with your own whirlpool. I saw they had those
