This property is amazing. It was like stepping back in time. The resort is very, very large and buildings are not all centered around the lobby. But the rooms are well renovated and quite spacious. The lobby is well decorated and the service is very, very good all around. The room was not over priced. They offered a yoga class...

Not bad but not great either. Kind of a funky ( in a good way) hotel. Lots of history, has been updated somewhat and somewhat run down. The sheets on my bed had holes in them, the elevators didn't always work, and the carpet was pretty tattered and walls needed fresh paint, fixtures didn't work. However staff is awesome very...

As the title suggests, I had several Palm Spring stays in the past years and was willing to pay extra to avoid this hotel. The reviews didn't seem positive enough, so I'd go off to the Westins in Rancho Mirage, or the Ritz (which was nice, but expensive). Never again! I happened onto the Riviera on short notice and we...

If you want the original Riviera charm, do not say here. Highly disappointed in the renovation. The rooms are still beautiful, but it sounds like that's going away. Staff is helpful and attentive, but the property is not what it used to be. If we knew the lobby looked so different, we would not have stayed here.

We stayed here as a girls getaway for two nights in January. I booked a deluxe room and our first room view was of a parking lot (see photo). I asked to move to a room with a mountain or pool view as we had never been to Palm Springs before and we really wanted to experience it. They moved...

Beautiful place, super clean, friendly staff, and endless amenities. Loved playing on the pool table and the piano in the lobby, turning down by the pool around the fireplace recapping the night was perfect. At time of check out we realized we weren't going to be out by 11:00 and they gladly changed our check out to 1:00 free of...

My parents and I stayed at the Riviera for a quick 24 hours over Christmas night (2016). There room and mine were nicely appointed and very spacious. I used my Starwood points for 10k each room and was conflicted to either pay or use points because both were inexpensive. The pool which I did not use was very inviting as...

After reading so many bad reviews about this hotel I was reluctant to try but the rates the week I went (1st week November 2016) were so reasonable I gave it a shot. Everything was great -- service outstanding, grounds well maintained, food and bar very hip, and the pool is fantastic. I will stay there again for sure.

Just came back from a New years Eve stay, and probably my forth stay at the property, which is always over the holidays. This property and resort experience is exactly as most of the reviews state. It is in a great location: a five minute Uber ride from downtown Palm Springs, and it is a funky old palm springs property...
