riviera palm springs... an amazing destination!
I recently had the extreme pleasure of visiting and being hosted overnight at the Riviera Resort and Spa in Palm Springs, and it was... magnificent! The first thing that is evident from the moment you walk in is that these folks pay attention to detail. Their lobby is very modern and inviting, with breathtaking decor and scenery, and wonderful orange and white floor to ceiling lighting designs.
The entire hotel has amazing lighting. At every turn, there is some creative wall lighting structure, chandelier, sconce, or art piece.
Being that this was our very first time to Palm Springs, we weren't sure what to expect. I just love this town, and I must expand my business to include some Palm Springs weddings and events!
The hotel made us feel like we were in the Rat Pack days with the citrus trees and old "motel" design mixed with modern elegance and good old-fashioned customer service. It's been a long time since we went someplace and were greeted by EVERY employee we passed.
Lynette Fox is the Catering Manager at the Riviera, and she gave me the grand tour of the place, as well as set up our guest room, lunch, drinks, and more. She was extremely hospitable and took the time to point out not only the wedding venues they offer, but the history of each spot in the hotel. And what a history it is!
If you are looking for a wedding venue in Palm Springs, the Riviera is one place you simply must check out. Great food, great customer service, and beautiful event spaces in a fun resort town? Sounds like the perfect party!
I also think the resort would make a superb venue for bachelor/ette parties and bridesmaid getaways to the spa, or even a honeymoon- their guests room are spacious and decorated in a fun retro theme. Plus, they are a short drive or walk from downtown Palm Springs where there are some great bars and nightlife. This place is a must-visit, and I am happy to recommend it to all my clients.
