Bob, Judy, Steve, Patty and Larry were all great hosts. Customer service is a priority here. From the time you check in to the time you leave, you feel like you are with family. Our trip could not have been better. We will be back!

Tip 1: make sure you get the right hotel. One of the reviews below is commenting on a different place (one with a fitness room and resort charges- which the wonderful Desert Riviera has neither of)
Tip 2: Think of this hotel as an object lesson in how to run a business. They simply have thought of their customers needs and met or exceeded them all. Everything from the free bicycle hire, to the 24hr free coffee and fruit, to the superbly equipped rooms. Even more than this is the attitude of everyone who works there, especially Judy and Larry, who simply personify customer service.
Tip 3: If you want to, you will make friends. Around the firepit, sharing a glass of wine, chatting about your day and planning the next one.
Tip 4: Do ask Larry or Judy or Grandpa Bob (what a nice man) for advice on where to eat and what to see and do in the area. They will recommend you a place, book it for you, arrange for the limo to take you and really make your stay stress free.
Tip 5: Book it. We must have stayed in dozens of hotels in several countries. This one is truly something worth experiencing.

This was our second stay at the Desert Riviera, and I can't imagine anything else they can do to make your vacation a pleasant and relaxing one. The services, the friendliness, the amenities, all make it pretty near perfect. We spent days riding the complimentary bikes, hiking the nearby Lykken Trail, lounging by the pool and making new friends. Evenings were taken up by cooking on the grill, which Larry set up and helped with, and a limo ride to a nearby restaurant. There is always coffee and fruit available, along with lots of suggestions and information. There is never a single thing dirty or out of place. A joy to be there!

We were on our way to Las Vegas and stopped for a couple of day in Palm Springs. Staying at the Desert Riviera Hotel was way beyond our expectations. Larry, Pat, Bob and Sue did everything they could to make our visit wonderful. The room was spotless, the pool and hot tub were perfect and the location was central to everything in Palm Springs. We intend to stay longer on next trip.

We had a very enjoyable and restful vacation at the Desert Riviera Hotel. We spent days sitting by the beautiful pool, swimming, reading,and just relaxing in the well tended and landscaped court yard, watching the busy hummingbirds feed, and listening to soft music. When it was time to eat or go see the sights the owners were there with copies of the menues of the various resturants in the area and information on what events were going on. They made reservations for us and delivered us to our destination in a limo. In the evenings we could sit by the fire pit and visit with the other guests and the owners. Our room was great and the king size bed was oh so comfortable. We had a very restful and wonderful experience and hope to be able to return for our next little get-a-way.
