This is a very cool little place with a vibe to match. Heated pool, helpful staff, unbelievably cool atmosphere. Great room appointments. Great location close to everything. Very clean. Great value. We've stayed here a few times now and it's our go to place to stay. Walk the neighborhood behind the hotel and get a real feel for the mid-century architecture that makes Palm Springs famous. Jensen's upscale grocery is nearby. Take advantage of the kitchenette in the room to bring in some snacks and wine.

I booked this hotel not really knowing what I would get, but the reviews were so good I thought why not? Well the reviews were spot on. Even my husband who never seems completely content with my choice of hotels was extremely impressed. It was pefect. The room was lovely, the attention to details surprising and the pool/hot tub area was so relaxing. I felt like I was going back in time - and given the times who wouldn't want to do that? I love this place and we rebooked for early next year.

My husband and I were pleased with every aspect of our stay at Desert Riviera. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, clean and on theme with mid century decor. Our room had a mini kitchen with a Keurig, mini fridge and toaster. The grounds were well maintained. The pool and hot tub are perfectly heated and available for use around the clock. We took advantage of all the hotel amenities including the bicycles and pizza oven. We rode the bikes into downtown, to hiking trails and through the neighborhoods. Breakfast was provided every morning with a special waffle breakfast on Christmas morning which included mimosas. The hotel is about 2miles from downtown, which can be walked, ubers were readily available.

We enjoyed our stay at this retro hotel. The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. Several times they offered us complementary beer or wine while at the pool side lounging. There are a pair of hummingbirds that will eat nectar out of your hands. They are mesmerizing to feed. The pool was a very warm 93° and was enjoyable regardless of time or temperature. There are only 10 rooms, so the spacious pool is never crowded. We had it to ourselves most of the time. The room was spacious and very clean. We didn’t take advantage of the pizza oven or the two barbecue grills. We will stay here on our next trip to Palm Springs.

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at this wonderful property. It is a wonderfully retro property with a nice 50’s feel. The property is impeccably clean. They put candles out on all the pool side tables and light the fireplaces every night. The pool is clean and heated to 92 degrees. The hot tub is warm and relaxing. The pool and hot tub is open 24 hours. This property is adults only which makes it perfect for couples. The bed was comfortable. The continental breakfast simple yet delicious. The staff friendly and incredibly helpful. The property is close to downtown shopping and restaurants but located away from the hustle and bustle. One of the neatest things for me was the hummingbirds. They will eat out of your hand. We look forward to future stays!
