We have had the great fortune to have stayed at the Desert Riviera several times. Each visit has been outstanding. Our most recent week long stay was once again - fabulous! You will not meet nicer, more hospitable owners than Rick and Martha, whose care and attention to detail have people returning to their piece of paradise. They greet guests...

My wife and i were looking for a place in Palm Springs for 2 nights. While looking at TripAdvisor reviews i came across the Desert Riviera listing and couldn't believe all the positive ratings. I decided to book the hotel. Unfortunately they only had one or the 2 nights open but i decided i have to see for myself anyway...

This adorable little hotel tucked off the highway in Palm Springs is fabulous! From the moment we arrived and walked through the gate, we were made to feel like valued guests. The staff could not have been nicer, the room was wonderful in every way, the pool area made me feel like I was lounging in Frank Sinatra's backyard, and...

Desert Riviera is definitely the best boutique hotel on earth. As you can tell from the other reviews, everything about it is perfect. Five stars is an understatement!!!!! If you don't love it, you have a serious problem.

Great place to relax. Had all the amenities that you could need. Staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. Great pool area, and even had bikes for you to use. Located in an area of Palm Springs that made it easy to get all over throughout our stay. Would recommend.

My wife and I had perfect weekend stay at the Desert Riviera. Conveniently located near down town Palm Springs for dining. The room was clean and captures a nostalgic mid-century theme. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners Rick and Martha as we arrived. They are a charming couple that made the utmost effort to guarantee your stay there...

My husband and I have been coming here every year since it opened. As time has gone by It only gets better. Rick and Martha own it now and you can tell they have a passion for making it the best it can be. At first I was worried it wouldn't be the same but it has just gotten better...

You will feel like your stepping back in time. A real treat! A perfect setting looking at the mountains to relax by the pool or take a stroll downtown. The best staff around. Would love to stay again.

My rating is harsh but I mark toughly. The staff at Desert Riviera are outstanding. They are professional, very knowledgeable and go out of their way to help. The place is spotless. We found Desert Riviera dated. This certainly appealed to the "snow birds" from California who come year after year and always give it 5 stars. I am 69...

This was the best hotel my husband and I have ever stated at before. We have tried a few other small hotels in the area, Desert Riviera by far exceeds our previous stays in Palm Springs. This little oasis is hidden behind tall hedges off the main road. The Staff pays attention to all the details. We even had the...
