We took a chance and tried something different than the typical Marriott, Hilton, etc.. Desert Riviera is a quaint hotel near everything Palm Springs has to offer. The owners are great people, but "dad" made our stay delightful and was so much fun around the fire pit. The accommodations are special and they really have restored it to what I...

This is a fantastic place. Not the fanciest hotel in Palm Springs, just the nicest. Larry and Patti make you feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. I've never been to a hotel where they say "help yourself to beer from the fridge anytime." Our room was VERY clean, and the grounds are immaculate. It deserves its top rating on tripadvisor. It...

This was our very first experience with a small and intimate hotel. We usually stay in major (brand) hotels, but having read the many positive reviews, booked a room. The reviews were correct and without exaggeration It was a wonderful experience, and we look forward to returning to this warm, friendly and so very efficient little hotel soon.

This is a small hotel and the guests feel very pampered. The service couldn't have been better. As we stayed we met the other guests at the pool or fire pit. I enjoyed getting up early to catch the sunrise outdoors. Larry and Patti really treated everyone like royalty. I'm looking forward to returning the same time next year so...

My wife and I just returned from a 4 night stay at the Desert Riviera, and everything positive we read about this hotel is true. When we arrived we were warmly greeted by Judy and offered a glass of wine as she explained the hotel offerings and gave us a quick tour. The hotel, room and landscaping were immaculate, our...

This is a lovely little hotel and totally as advertised. As others have said, I didn't want to leave - 3 nights were just not enough. And it was hard to leave that little piece of heaven and do anything because it is just so relaxing. Lot's of birds to watch during our morning hot tub, fresh fruit to go...

My wife and I travel to Palm Springs for a couple of days of relaxation after attending a big conference in L.A. We couldn't have hoped for a best stay and haven't found a better one since. Patty and Larry are the best host you can hope for, they managed to find the perfect balance between being welcoming and friendly...

I discovered this amazing gem while reading the rave reviews on Trip Advisor. We spent our first holiday there in January 2011, and returned again this year for nine blissful days as we loved it so much. I can't think of a place I would rather be when it's winter in Canada. In fact, it is becoming an annual pilgrimage...
