My g/f and I stayed at the Desert Riveria Hotel last week on our trip to Palm Springs. We were looking for a quiet oasis to relax. We both felt so incredibly lucky to have found this hotel. We will not stay anywhere else when we return to Palm Springs. The owners of the hotel are fantastic and go above...

I wanted to take my Mom on a little get away. We were originally staying at another local hotel, but the conditions there were such that we checked out after the first night. I had been looking around town for another place to stay, and had looked at another location where I was told to go and check this place...

A friend and I visited Palm Springs on a road trip and stayed here one night at the beginning of June. I did a lot of research before settling on a hotel and based on reviews from Yelp and Trip Advisor, we booked a night at the Desert Riviera. I emailed Judy to make my reservation and was promptly sent...

My husband and I frequent the obvious luxury hotel experiences of the beautiful desert of Palm Springs on a pretty frequent basis... we decided to 'try something new' for our 'baby-moon' / my birthday getaway. I didn't want to stay at the normal places which are a bit more crowded, lots of kids, lots of people, lots of STUFF. We...

If you're looking to just sit back and relax in a quiet and comfortable setting then i,d strongly recommend the Desert Riviera. The setting is perfect (NO KIDS, no partying - quiet and soothing). Small boutique hotel where you feel safe and at home - you have everything you need and more (just ask if it's not already provided for...

A great place to kick back and relax for a couple days in Palm Springs. Clean and spacious rooms, with very friendly owners. A free drink when we checked in set the tone for a great stay. Free drinks and snacks, free limo service, and a great DVD collection are available to all. It's a nice touch, which we really...

Everything about the Desert Riviera is fantastic - especially the owners Larry and Patty and all of their staff. You won't find a better place to stay, and I trust that it will exceed your expectations.

No excellent review here on Trip Advisor is an over-statement on the attributes of this little hotel. We had such an amazing trip to Palm Springs, thanks mainly to the experience offered by the Desert Riviera. The hotel itself is a little retro-jewel. Gorgeous pool to relax around all day. The bikes available make it easy to get around town....

Stayed here for two nights with my husband and my parents! We had originally only booked one night, but 10 minutes after arriving at the hotel we decided that we HAD to stay another night. Even two nights wasn't enough for this place, but unfotunately we had other plans. We've never stayed at such a friendly place! We felt so...
