We spent just one night at the desert riviera hotel in Palm Springs on last 13th of August 11. We had the vip room (manager unit room 13). The room is the only one not on the pool side but it is really nice, big and confortable. The swimming pool is beatiful and relaxing. There are bycicle and tandem available,...

I visit Palm Springs at least twice a year and usually I rent a house or stay at a big trendy hotel but never again! This place was so sweet and private. We relaxed the entire time. The service was amazing and the crew was so friendly. I wish I knew about this place sooner. I love the no kids...

Oh my goodness, where to begin ... (I am hesitant to praise this place too much as I wish it to remain the best kept secret in Palm Springs!) We couldn't find how to check in, wanna know why? Because we had to walk through the hidden door in the hedges (or as my daughter called it "The Secret Garden...

From outside, the hotel doesn't seem very welcoming...but as soon as you get in, the owners or people working there will offer you a drink, tell you very nicely everything you may want to ask, show you how to use the free phone (local, national, international!!), offer you a fruit, show you to your room, explain that you can use...

Plenty of towels, noodles, floats The rooms : Clean, unique, spacious,...

Everything about this hotel is wonderful but there were so many smokers around the pool that it did taint the experience. Patty, Larry and Judy were all terrific and the mist out by the pool really makes you forget about the heat. If only they would make it a nonsmokimg patio! It is very small so the smoke is unavoidable....

We were in Palm Springs for only a night and we were very lucky to get a room here! The owners were incredibly friendly, the little things really make this place special. Even after we checked out the next day they invited us to spend as much of the day by the pool as we could. Many places won't allow...
