For those of you tired of this long winter may I suggest to you a beautiful resort in a warm setting with a legendary history. The Riviera Palm Springs is an iconic playground of the past, characterized today as Old Hollywood glamour, with a fresh, contemporary twist. The sprawling resort recently completed a $70 million transformation including the revamped Chiki Bar & Pool, 45,000 square feet of meeting space, indoor and outdoor wedding accommodations, an 11,000 square foot spa, and a third pool catering to guests looking for a relaxed environment.
Situated at the base of the majestic San Jacinto Mountains in the heart of old Palm Springs, Riviera Palm Springs is an escape from the hustle and bustle of many nearby Southern California cities. Minutes away, by the resort’s house trolley or a leisurely walk, guests find high-end shopping, city tours of Palm Springs, as well as many celebrity homes, the Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Palm Springs Art Museum and eco-tours of Indian Canyons.
The hotel, dubbed in the 60s as “Palm Springs’ largest and most famous resort,” was the home away from home for the Rat Pack; frequent guests included Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and Frank Sinatra.
