Our first visit to the Desert Riviera was a really special part of a really special trip for our 40th anniversary. We can't say enough good about this place, you must stay to experience it yourself. Just please stay away long enough until our next reservation is confirmed... ;-) Seriously, as born and raised Southerners, I know our Mothers would...

For my money this is the best place to stay in Palm Springs. Why do most people go there? To relax and chill out, and the Desert Riviera delivers that in spades. Clean, quiet and stylish, and with a helpful staff, the DR is the perfect boutique hotel for a quick (or long) getaway. Do yourself a favor, stay here!

I can't say how great this boutique hotel is, but I will try! They are so accommodating, from making our reservations to checking out, and of course everything in between. I LOVE all the special touches. The free bikes and golf clubs are a great way to get some exercise after the breakfast snacks. Then cooling in the pool (heated...

This is our second stay at Desert Riviera, we just couldn't stay away. Misty and her team, Traci and Amanda are top notch. I felt as I was coming home to old friends. We debated on weather or not to write this review as we are not sure we want to share this place. The rooms are so clean and...

Amazing Place for the perfect weekend! Misty and the staff were amazing! They made us feel so at home and were there to answer questions, help with reservations and provide shuttle service if available. Accommodations and location were perfect. Nothing beats relaxing around the fire pit and chatting with other guests and good people! This place was a mini oasis...

Let's be fair, I want to keep this place all to myself. But, because my heart overflows with love for these wonderful people, I'm compelled to let you in on this little secret. The property is immaculately curated to reflect the architectural history of Palm Springs and the grounds are intimate and scrupulously maintained. The pool is perfect, the rooms...

Just spent a couple of days at the Desert Riviera for my wife's birthday. What a great place! Great rooms, fantastic garden pool and hot tub and balloons and a piece of cake, to boot! Definitely lived up to its great reputation! Thanks, Desert Riviera, for making our visit special!

Desert Riviera is a little piece of heaven in Palm Springs. From the moment we arrived we knew that this hotel was special. Wonderful and friendly staff, immaculate room, and dreamy pool/courtyard. This is one of those "finds" that you want to tell everyone about, and then again....kind of want to keep it for yourself.
