Palm Springs’ Place in the Sun

Revel in the summer sun at Riviera Palm Springs, a Hollywood vintage with modern taste. If the Rat Pack had spent its summers roasting marshmallows with Marilyn Monroe and hosting ice cream socials for the kids, rather than frolicking in scandal and sin, this is where they would have done it. Riviera Palm Springs is splashing summer 2010 with pet-friendly and pampering events for the whole family. Play all day with summer-special guestroom prices, Palm Beach attractions, world-class dining, and soothing treatments at the resort’s SpaTerre.

No matter what your guilty-pleasure, exploit personal desires with any of the following summer affairs at the newly revived Riviera Palm Springs.
