Desert Riviera Hotel

Reviewed 15 January 2014

Most hotels I use as a base for my activities, and ignore the standard hotel amenities. I try to jam in and see as many things as I can. This hotel to get everything out of it, you want to spend some time at. They have a beautiful relaxing courtyard with pool and bar b q and fire pit, free bikes to ride, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly Nice large rooms with kitchenettes, and an awesome welcome basket. Good breakfast place within walking distance. So my only regret, is I didn't get to use the all the hotel had to offer.

I think this was our 14th stay at the Desert Riviera. There is something for everyone: the BBQ corner (2 of them), the hot tub, the heated pool, the fruit basket, the free long distance phone, the free WI-FI, the access to a computer with Internet, and the access to a full kitchen.The unlimited knowledge of Judy, Steve, Tracy, and Misty about the restaurants, the activities, and what is happening in town is always so appreciated. They are still able to recommend new activities and new restaurants. At every stay, we have met amazing people. A gem - Always our home away from home!

This hotel rates 6 stars and there are several reasons why. Our stay exceeded my expectations in every way. The owners and staff do everything possible to make sure your stay is as perfect as possible. I have never been so spoiled, reminds me of how you are treated on a cruise ship. So many complimentary services, some that you don't even know about unless you talk to staff. Complimentary limo (picked us up at airport and took us back to airport), cruiser bikes, 24 hour fresh coffee, free long distance and international calling, fresh fruit and fresh pastries in the morning. Beautifully clean 93 degree swimming pool and 102 degree wonderful spa. Gas fire pit. Need I say more? Going on a hike, just mention it to Judy or whoever is in the office and they will offer you maps and directions, binoculars and a walking stick to enhance your experience. Sparkling clean rooms with a wonderful friendly maid service. Complimentary brunch on Christmas with homemade tamales by the maids who are part of the DRH family. I could go on, but what really made it special was the owners and staff at DRH. The new owners, Rick and Martha are generous caring people who are committed to improving the hotel with new additions and enhancements. I also can't say enough about the staff; Traci, Judy, Steph, and a wonderful new addition, Misty. Lastly, the guests at the hotel were all gracious and friendly. Everyone there was a repeat visitor because they appreciate the warm friendly atmosphere that you won't find anywhere else.
I made reservations here because I was curious about of the Trip Advisor rating. The hotel is a small 11 room hotel with an intimate and romantic setting. I will definitely be back and look forward to again seeing all the wonderful people we met. I guarantee you will be delighted with your stay at Desert Riviera Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask staff.

We just returned from our second stay at the Desert Riviera. As always, everything was perfect.

If you are looking for a quiet, intimate retreat-- this is the place. The retro rooms surround a gorgeous, crystal clear swimming pool. We took their complimentary bicycles for rides around town during the day-- and took the house limo to dinner at night. And if you feel like cooking yourself, they have a new outdoor setup featuring two grills and everything you need in your room's kitchenette.

The grounds are immaculately green and clean-- relaxing is the best part of this place.

And of course, Judy and the gang run the place like a well-oiled machine. Never too intrusive, but always aware of your needs.

We love it and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: We love rooms 5 and 6.. perfectly located in the middle, away from the highway and hotel office.

My husband and I just spent one night at the Desert Riviera Hotel in Palm Springs. It's tucked away behind walls in a neighborhood that is a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag of the town. We liked that. Loved the ambiance of the place and our room. The owners pay special attention to details including providing pool floaties and lovely lighting in the beautiful garden that is the interior of the property. Will definitely stay here next time we are in Palm Springs.

For what this place is, it is great!! (It is a family owned hotel, not the Four Seasons.) We really enjoyed our stay here. The people who own and run the place are really great -- very kind, very available, very helpful. The hotel is super clean and very comfortable. The rooms are very spacious and they all are around a pool (heated). The hotel is very close to downtown -- about a mile away. Parking is free and easy downtown, so it was very convenient. Also, they provide a free limo service if you didn't drive or you don't feel like driving.
We are looking forward to returning.
