I absolutely loved staying at the Desert Riviera and cannot wait to go back. Larry, Patti, Judy and Judy's husband were some of the kindest most welcoming people we had ever met. They provided great recommendations on places to see, things to do, and where to dine. The limo driver, Jay, was a delight as he would tell us stories...

This was our first stay and it was fantastic. Larry, Patty and Judy went out of thier way to make our stay relaxing and comfortable while providing everything we needed or wanted in a low key fashion that made us feel like family. The whole place has a cozy feel and virtually all of the rooms are just a few...

We are repeat guests of the Desert Riviera Hotel and every visit seems to get better. Owners, Larry & Patty, treat their guests as if they are family staying in their private home. No car, no problem as their Limo service will pick you up and return you to the airport. There are bicycles for all to use, a bar-b-que,...

In 2011, we had not been to Palm Springs in over 30 years. Looking for a different experience than Spring Break, we found this hotel. We came back again this year and had to write.

We are coming back for our 4th stay and each one is a little longer than the last. We have felt at home here from the first time we set foot in the lovely courtyard. The people are the best. No request too much. So much to do all around the area, we find new treasures each visit. And to...

This is the best bet if you want a Palm Springs boutique hotel experience. It's the best of modern and retro at the same time. The staff are awesome, the rooms are clean and comfortable. The pool is the perfect temperature for hot days and warm nights. My only complaint is that making reservations is a challenge since they are...

This was our second stay at the Desert Riviera and we can honestly say it gets better & better. A home away from home, Patti, Larry and Judy (plus all the behind the scenes folks) just have a way of making you feel welcome. From the airport pickup to the relaxing atmosphere to the Easter Bunny basket on easter Sunday...

Patty, Judy and Larry at the Desert Riviera are superb at what they do!! They greeted us with a glass of wine and a tour of the property.
