My friend and I have traveled annually together for over 20 years to many different cities. This was our first visit to Palm Springs, and the Desert Riviera Hotel was an absolute delight for our 4 night stay. We prefer a small boutique type hotel with outstanding customer service and attention to detail in making our stay comfortable and above and beyond what we expected. I have the highest regard for all of the staff, and their hard work really shows throughout the property and your experience there. All amenities were as promised. I would not consider staying anywhere else!

From the manicured gardens , sparkling pool, immaculate rooms and calming atmosphere, this Retro 60s boutique hotel is the perfect escape. Chic, understated, and stylish, we felt like we were more in a private home with all amenities possible... Coffee, waters, juices., muffins, etc...beautiful bicycles, popcorn in the afternoons(!) kitchen and laundry facilities , and everything to assure the guests of a great getaway...

I have been to the DR many times over the past 12 years, always enjoying my stay more than the last time. I was a tad nervous with COVID but went anyhow and wasn't disappointed. First I'll start with COVID stuff...things are a bit different, such as no shared newspapers, shared kitchen was usually only used by one at a time and cleaning service upon request versus daily (yet you can request it daily). The staff cleaned all tables and lounge chairs daily, and our room was perfectly clean. The DR is an intimate place to stay with only 11 rooms. Guests are respectful of your privacy if you want but it's always fun to gather around the fire pit and meet such interesting and nice people. I love it because of it's size (small!!!), cleanliness and most of all STAFF!!!! Ali, Ashley and Sophia were all so sweet and helpful. Monica, who is in charge of cleaning the rooms, is just darling and very good at what she does. For me the main attraction is Misty, the manager. She is there for any and every need, and goes above and beyond for every guest. I hope the owners know how lucky they are to have her. We can't wait to go back next year. Thanks again for another perfect vacation.
